For better or worse, my imagination, and those of most people of my generation, takes an audio-visual form, contrary to our dead ancestors that relied more on the written word. Bu for the longest time, I had no idea about who could play the three main characters of my novel, except for one of them! Sister Love herself was born in City of Heroes, and thus had a perfect physique you could only see in comic books! That was, until I discovered:
the wonderful Sara Martins! I was zapping from tv channel to tv channel when I stopped on this English tv show, Death in Paradise, where Sara played the part of the cop Camille, from 2011 to 2015. She would be perfect as Sister Love!
This actor wasn't an afterthought, I always thought about Alfred Molina when I was writing the character of Steven Thorne, billionaire turned superhero, and running for being the Mayor of Washington. He can be both charming and threatening, which suited the character just perfectly, as we all saw in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2.
