Alexa remains by the newly crowned King Damian’s side as his guard, ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion's people, despite continuing to harbor a secret love for him. However, when another threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on their newly forged allies from Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. With the fate of her nation hanging in the balance once again, will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy -- before it's too late?

This is actually really hard! When I think of the characters I’ve created, I know exactly what they look like, what they sound like, and move like. So it’s hard to find a “real world” individual who exactly matches what’s in my mind. And I know as a reader it’s tough for me to see some of my favorite characters from beloved books portrayed on-screen since I’ve imagined them so thoroughly.
A lot of readers may not realize that Alexa and Damian are both multiracial. Blevon, one of the countries in DEFY and IGNITE, was influenced by Asian culture and even the Blevonese language is inspired by the Chinese language. If you look at my Pinterest board for “DEFY dream cast” you’ll see some of the actors I’ve been drawn to recently and think might fit into the cast for a future DEFY movie. Of course, who knows what terrific actors are on the horizon!
For Rylan: I think Theo James would actually be a fantastic fit. He kind of reminded me the most of what Rylan looks like. Plus he’s just so good at nuanced acting, at showing what we as authors try to describe!
For Alexa: Kristin Kreuk. She even has the perfect hazel eyes! Song Hye Kyo is another actress I recently discovered that I think might do a great job.
For Damian: Dennis Oh (O’Neil). With blue contacts (for Damian’s piercing blue eyes), I think he would be a great fit. Or if you could somehow combine Godfrey Gao and Ian Somerhalder into one person (and keep Ian’s eyes)! I mean, can you think of an actor who is better at doing that smoldering smirk? Plus he’s also great at acting like a jerk, while still letting you realize there are hidden layers to his character.
Ziyi Zhang could be Damian’s mother for any flashbacks.
Huang Xiaoming might be a great Eljin.
I have pictures of all of these actors and actresses on my Pinterest board.
