Pink Carnation Spotlight: Bryce Dallas Howard (Letty Alsworthy)

We now move onto the third book in Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation series. A lovely Irish air is blowing through as Letty and Geoff are off on their unexpected honeymoon in The Deception of the Emerald Ring. Now if I might say, I think this might be my best casting of the films that play in my head, I'd like to say a cinema near you, but it's my head... when I was reading this, both Geoff and Letty instantly sprang into my mind as these actors. And doesn't our actress look lovely in green? A very Irish color at that. Now onto Letty being portrayed in my cranium by...

Name: Bryce Dallas Howard

Dream Character Casting for the Lauren Willig Miniseries: Letty Alsworthy

First Impression: The Village, which she did a really good job in, despite how easy it was to figure out what was going on.

Why they'd be the perfect actor for the Lauren Willig Miniseries: Did you see her in As You Like It?!? Pitch perfect British accent, plus, the hair, the smile... Letty all the way!

Lasting Impression: The Village... because the PR for this film would not let you forget her name! But that's as a person, for as an actress... As You Like It.

What else you've seen them in: Aside from her roles in M. Night Shyamalan movies, you'll probably recognize her from two of the biggest film franchises where her installments was sadly lacking, notably Terminator and Spider-Man. But these big blockbuster movies that are synonymous with the name Howard don't do her the justice she deserves, just watch As You Like It, and you'll see what I'm saying.

Can't believe it's them: She was a Who in Whoville! Not surprising seeing as her dad directed it.

Wish they hadn't: Victoria in the Twilight Saga's Eclipse. I'm sad cause she's back in a blockbuster and now she's going to always and forevermore be associated with this franchise, but more sad in that they've recast the role. I hate hate hate recasting. Just, studios, STOP IT! I don't care that she's a better actress or a bigger name, you've f'd up the continuity and for me that's the biggest sin of all.

Bio: To quote an old Eddie Murphy sketch: "Opie had sex!?!" Yes, she is Opie's child. Enough said.


I can really see Letty in Bryce.

I see her more as Eloise than Letty.

Someone else said that, and I can see it. For some reason I have trouble picturing Eloise, but she would be great in that role as well!

Too skinny and tall!! But I love your Geoff choice...
