Picturing Earth & Sky‘s characters

With Earth & Sky‘s release just a few weeks away, I thought I’d introduce you to some of the characters. Or, at least, approximately what I imagine those characters look like.

If you’d rather form your own mental images without interference, this is your cue to stop reading. πŸ˜‰

Skylar

Earth & Sky‘s main character, Skylar, looks a lot like That 70s Show-era Laura Prepon:

Although Skylar’s hair is not as red — mostly brown, like here:

Win is on the receiving end of looks like this rather a lot early on in the story:

Win

Win was the character I could first picture clearly — I immediately thought of Luke Pasqualino from the UK Skins (with added bonus, he has the correct accent too):

For the most of the book, he does not get to be quite that relaxed. This would be closer to his more frequent emotional state:

Angela

Skylar’s best friend Angela could be portrayed by Devon Seron, and is generally just as cheerful as you see here:

Jeanant

The leader of Win’s rebel group, Jeanant, is a ringer for Sendhil Ramamurthy (in earlier drafts of the book, Skylar had a crush on him, and I’d imagine you can see why):

Kurra

The Enforcer who pursues Skylar and Win through time and around the world is a pretty close match for Tilda Swinton a la the picture below, although Kurra has pale gray eyes (and would be wearing rather different clothing):

Thlo

Jeanant’s second in command and the woman directly in charge of Win’s group, Thlo, has a very similar look to Joan Chen (and this would be a rather typical expression):

Jule

Win’s antagonizing colleague, Jule, who has a more prominent role in the rest of the trilogy, is represented in my files by Lee Thompson Young, who I was sad to discover has recently passed on:

He can be charming when he wants to be:

There you have it! If you’ve read the book, let me know whether my images fit yours, or whether you have alternate ideas (or ideas for characters not currently pictured). πŸ™‚

  1. That wasn’t quite how I was picturing Skylar, but Luke Pasqualino is SPOT ON for how I thought of Win πŸ™‚ And for some reason, I didn’t picture Jeanant with hair so those curly locks really surprised me at first haha! This is really neat to see, thanks Megan!

    • Yeah, she isn’t perfect for Skylar, but that’s the closest actress I could find. πŸ™‚

      Cool that I got Win’s Luke Pasqualino-ness across accurately! πŸ˜€ (Random detail: The main reason his corduroy blazer is gray is because of that first photo with the gray cardigan thingy above… I just thought a blazer was cooler than a cardigan.)

      Interesting about Jeanant… I have trouble picturing him bald! Heh.
