|Featuring VANQUISHED by Katie Clark|
Join Casting Director (and author!) Katie Clark as she shares her dream cast for a movie version of her novel VANQUISHED!
by Katie Clark, special for EIR
Hi Serena! Thanks for having me. I have totally thought about my dream cast for Vanquished (book 1 in the Enslaved Series). In fact, I pretty much had these actors in place before the book was started!
Hana is my main character. She’s calm and methodical, always doing her best to follow the rules of the Greaters. But she’s just so smart, and when the evidence is laid out in front of her she can’t deny that the Greaters are lying. I picture her to look like Reese Witherspoon, but in more of a “Pleasantville” role and less of a “Sweet Home Alabama” role.

VANQUISHED by Katie Clark at Amazon
Fischer is one of two heroes throughout the series. Have you ever seen Drop Dead Diva, on Lifetime? Do you know Fred, Jane’s original guardian angel? Ben Feldman plays Fred, and he is exactly the guy I had in mind for Fischer. A “think positive” kind of guy, Fischer is handsome, sweet, and totally caring.
And then we have Keegan. We don’t see him too much in Vanquished until the last third of the book, but he’s a musician, he’s good looking, and he’s got a plan for his future—one that definitely includes Hana. If you’ve watched the Twilight movies, then you know who Emmitt is. Played by Kellan Lutz, this is exactly the kind of guy Keegan is.
So, a movie with Ben Feldman, Kellan Lutz, and Reese Witherspoon. Sounds like a party to me!
Vanquished is set in a world where poverty and sickness are rampant, but help for the needy is hard to come by. When Hana’s mom is diagnosed with the mutation, she is denied the medication that might save her life. Fischer, a medic at the hospital, implies there are people who can help—except Hana’s not sure she can trust him; Fischer is involved in a religious group, and religion has been outlawed for the last hundred years. Hana embarks on a dangerous journey, seeking the answers Fischer insists are available. When the truth is uncovered does Hana stick to what she knows? Or does she join the rebellion, taking a stand against an untrustworthy society?
