| Emma Watson as PERSEPHONE |
The Dark Wife by Sarah Diemer
Persephone, goddess queen of the Underworld. This was the hardest character to cast for me, if only because she’s so central to the imagery of the myth as a whole. Not that Hades isn’t, but I was already envisioning her as Katie McGrath by the time I started reading the book, so… not much room for conflict there. I finally settled on Emma because she was the closest match to “my” Persephone, both in appearance and mannerisms.
That and I just really like the idea of her and Katie having sex.
