Story Character Chart: Your Book Turned into a Movie

As a writer, a guilty pleasure of mine is imagining which actor/actress should play the characters in my book. So I had great fun making this chart for the story I’m hoping to publish one day. The chart looks a little messy, but whateverrr.

To clear any confusion, my manuscript The Runaway Courtesan has been retitled NIGHT FLOWER (Yeah, had to say goodbye to the former title due to marketing and thematic reasons. But I’ll continue to refer to this project as TRC until further notice).

theNIGHT_FLOWER England 1866: A love story about a prostitute and a gentleman in a time of social turmoil.

Léa Seydoux as Amanda Hollingworth
James Purefoy as Lucas Creswell
Gillian Anderson as Mrs. Creswell
Sally Hawkins as Madame Bedwyn
Amanda Hale as Jane Roderick
David Morrissey as James Roderick
Imogen Poots as Theodosia Drury

It was pretty easy making this chart, though very time consuming (at least for me). I don’t have a photo-editing program so used the following sites:

For pretty text fonts: Picmonkey

For combining photos: Fotoflexer

For cropping photos into circles (and other more complicated but wonderful stuff): Sumopaint*

*But if you’re a newb like me you might want to read the instructions on this site on how to crop circular photos.  

If you do make your own character chart and post it on your blog, send me the link in a comment below! Happy Chart-Making!

  2. Thanks for giving me an excuse to entertain what is also my guilty pleasure, June. It’s so much fun to daydream about a cast. I’m most definitely snagging this concept. I think we should include the names of the actors too. I know most of yours, but not all.

  4. It looks great. It also seems like a great way to keep track of a characters relationships to other or if their are different groups/societies in a book.
