How do you picture your favorite fiction characters?

Post by Godiva83 on April 14th 2008, 1:37 am

.Do you find it easy to picture in your head the image of a certain fiction character?

Usually, the movie industry makes it a lot easier, although it's not always accurate...

How do you picture then, fiction characters in your head? Maybe a public figure, an actor, a friend, a family member...

Place a photographic reference here!


***
I myself, for example, picture Pandora (a female vampire in Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles) as Monica Bellucci Suspect

Don Quijote

Post by Don on April 14th 2008, 5:27 pm

Well, this is kinda cheating, because the book I'm currently reading has already been turned into a movie. The book is Miguel Cervantes' "Don Quijote", and the character who plays him in the movie is John Lithgow. Personally, I think he was well cast for the role, and other than being a little stouter than I imagined him to be, he's quite similar to the mental image that I got of the aspiring Knight from reading the book itself. The same applies to his squire, Sancho (Bob Hoskins).



Possibly the only jarring aspect is the conversion from its original tongue (Spanish, as the novel is set in Spain) to English. But the accents in the movie suit the characters so well, that its quite easy to overlook.

Don't know why this ended up above your posts. Is something wrong? (probably me)



Homer would easily recognize George here as Odysseus. Hair tonic and all.

*APOLOGIES!*

This thing in fact was displaying the messages backwards... I think I fixed it.
Rather annoying though, sorree

This is my idea of Catherine "Dahl" Dollanganger, from VC Andrew's "Dollanganger Series".

Yep, my buddy SJ is gorgeous enough, wouldn't you say? cyclops
