There’s been a lot of talk about some of my favourite young adult books being turned into movies as of late, and I am always holding my breath to see who they cast next. Unlike what seems like the majority of the fandom, I am actually pretty happy with the castings for both The Hunger Games and The Mortal Instruments. I, for one, am not bothered about what the actors look like. They don’t need to be carbon copies of the character they are playing. The only thing they need to be able to do is act. And act fantastically. The movie studio could have cast Katniss’s identical twin, but that would have been useless if the actress portraying her couldn’t pull off the part.
