contest winner

Holy crap. Only three people entered the TPC give-away contest, but they did a bloody fantastic job. In the end, I’ve chosen the one with my favorite suggestion for Belinda, although some of the other casting ideas were inspired.

So the winner is Thao Nguyen from Facebook, who gave the following cast for THE QUEEN’S BASTARD:

Belinda - Michelle Trachtenberg
Javier - Kyle Schmid
Lorraine Walter - Tilda Swinton
Eliza Beaulieu - Natalie Portman
Lord Drake - Eric Braeden
Marius Poulin - Henry Cavill
Sacha Asselin - Paul Walker
Sandalia - Orla Brady
Irina - Cate Blanchett
Akilina - Shirley Henderson
Rodrigo - Javier Bardem
Dmitri - Clive Owen
Gondola Boy - Jim Sturgess

Thao observed that the girl on the cover of THE QUEEN’S BASTARD *looked* like Michelle Trachtenberg, which I’d noticed too, so that’s a double-win for her. :)

The most interesting thing about this contest, for me, is that not one of the actors is somebody I’d thought of when I ‘cast’ this book in my mind–and TQB is about the only book I’ve ever cast anybody for. I *love* the choices people made, but it’s fascinating to see the different ideas!
