First, Lauren Oliver explained that the t.v. show is going to be different than the novel. We will be meeting all of the characters in the first plot and some of the character's role have changed. But have no fear, they want to make for compelling television and a lot of times, that involves changing things to flow better on screen.
They've also announced quite a few character castings. I can't comment on them since I haven't read the books yet (which is very regrettable and something I plan on changing this year) but here is the cast thus far:
Emma Roberts as Lena
Daren Kagasoff as AlexAlice Marvels (an awesome site for book to movie news and other things) that he has been embracing the fandom. A girl tweeted him saying her 18th birthday was coming up and she was considering running into the woods. He replied saying "I'll be waiting" which I thought was super cute.
Jeanine Mason as Hana
Gregg Sulkin as Julian
So there is the casting news. For those of you who have read it, what do you think? I'd also like to hear from those of you like me who haven't read it yet. Stoked or no?
