Fantasy Casting Fun

We all picture our own cast when we read. So, let's have some fun and imagine who we would cast in the Once & Future Series. Twice a week for the next 3 weeks, I'll post a character. Comment with a name and/or picture of whoever you imagined in the role while you were reading. I'll reveal the final selections during the online launch party.

Come and see the great highland games, dancing, fiddle, and band competitions, and great music. There are even great activities for kids. Mine love the archery. I have also heard that Clan Currie is planning to have some interesting Gaelic culture info in their tent. One of the best parts of these games is that they're dog friendly, so you might even see Wee Fergus out there.
