ACT | loose lips sink ships

picspam + mix: ada or ardor.


casting by martyr4mylove4u and myself; with help from marketchippie.

Ada or Ardor is Vladimir Nabokov's longest novel; it is an incestuous love story and our personal favourite of his works; it combines his glorious prose with one of his most ambitious ideas, a large, fire breathing dragon of a story that twists time and history to its will. Below is our casting and a mix that follows the general line of the story; this was actually a really difficult book to cast because I left the novel with such clear cut ideas of how I saw the characters, very vivid pictures in my mind and it was hard to find actors who matched up to that. In the end, we've picked people who we think could pick up the kind of demeanor that their character requires of them and worked with that. If you haven't read this yet, I don't know what you're waiting for. Pick up a copy and go.
