LESS THAN TWENTY-FOUR HOURS TO GO. DO YOU ALREADY HAVE YOUR COPY?! ARE YOU ALL FREAKING OUT AS MUCH AS I AM?
You might remember my very detailed and enthusiastic fancasting of the characters of The Next Together. It’s the obvious one-day-to-go choice, none of you are surprised. So here’s the updated version for TLB.
Clove Sutcliffe is Ellen Page.
My quiet, sad little darling. For a lot of the book she doesn’t have the best time of it. She’s got the perfect features to match her parents’, and Ellen Page is so expressive. Plus: gay. Very gay.
Elenore Walker, Clove’s love interest, is Kate McKinnon.
Firstly, it should be noted that Ella is officially the naughtiest name. That was not an accident. Ella is v v naughty, just like Kate McKinnon. The wild blonde hair, the nonsense facial expressions and the extreme gay-ness are all very Ella.
Dr Tom Sutcliffe (née Galloway), Clove’s dad, is Karl Urban.
Unf. Tom melted a lot of hearts in TNT, and I hope he’ll do the same in TLB. He’s clever and witty and chill, and he’s got the whole cocky thing going for him. Plus: a motorbike. Nuff said.
Caveat: young Tom, as seen in The Next Together, is still and always will be Dylan O’Brien. He just is.
Dr Jennifer Sutcliffe, Clove’s mum, is Jessica Hynes.
Jen is very smiley and mothering, with a good sense of humour.She’s also a killer scientist at the top of her field, and bisexual. Jen is my fave, tbh.
Clove’s best friend Meg is Amanda Seyfried. She’s blonde and pretty but also kind of dorky. She’s a huge fangirl and gets nervous when she doesn’t know how to deal with things.
Katherine Finchley is obviously still Rose Leslie, as so:
Matthew Galloway is, as always, Ben Whishaw.
And here’s the whole gang, all together. Working as a team, like all families should.
Okay, so you’ve met the characters. You’ve got the reading soundtrack. You’re been reminded of the events of The Next Together. There’s nothing else for it, guys. You’re officially ready to read The Last Beginning. GOOD THING IT COMES OUT TOMORROW, HUH?! TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!
The Last Beginning will be published by Walker Books in the UK and Australia on 6th October 2016. It will be released in the US in Fall 2017 by Sky Pony Press.
