... what are your Choices of Actors ? (Updated)



I was having a discussion with a group member, and the topic of conversation turned to which real-life personality's looks would be suitable for each of the characters in Saiunkoku Monogatari?

So, come on, tell us what your choices would be for which character … they do NOT have to be Asians, or even actors; they can be rockstars, politicians, any celebrity, or even your family members, relatives or neighbours! But you must give the link to a picture/photo taken off the internet, dA gallery, photobucket, imageshack, or other sites.

Name your selected SaiMono character(s), your choice(s) (name and a brief description), and the link(s) in the comments below … I will be updating this blog with the pics you linked to, unless you tell me you don't want me to, ok? ^^ Your choices can be serious ones or fun/gag ones.

But try and keep this free of cross-dressing … that is, try not to have males in female roles, and females in male roles, unless you find one that simply begs to be chosen, that simply jumps out at you! …

Wow I don't know any actor or actress for SaiMono Live Action but I think that Ran Shuusei could be pretend by Choi Si Won but Daniel Henney is more handsome!!!!
I was thinking that it's very difficult find an Asian actor because I don't see a lot of asian film or drama so I'm very uninformed, sorry :(
Takeshi Kaneshiro would be perfect as Ran Shuuei ahahah with long hairRed Link Luv

I'd put Byou from ScReW as Shuei [vocalist]
He's funny, charming, has his moments of awkward shyness, but he is highly over sexualized.

I'd put Keiyuu from Kra as Koyu [vocalist]
He works hard, can be very focused, but also has a playful side. And he's highly observant of others, but completely oblivious when it concerns himself.

I wouldn't like a live-action adaptation of the series, to be honest, but if it must be done, then I would like it to be a Japanese drama, and to use only Japanese actors. I don't know many so I can't post pictures of them, sorry.

Love the idea of Kamijo as Sakujun (Versailles fan lol) and I'd give thumbs up for Gackt too. He makes a really good samurai (watch Bunraku :D)

I don't really see any potential actors for Ryuuki though. Its a shame

(dunno how to post links.so lemme try something I found on the web)

Shi Seiran: Hiroki Uchi! he plays Takenaga Oda of the live action series of Yamato Nadeshiko
He resembles Seiran, well, at least in my opinion. He exudes a reserved and cool character, and I kinda can imagine him slashing a sword around (or throwing bamboo shoots at TanTan, lol)

Ah no no, doesn't have to be Japanese/Korean! :no: can be anybody - politicians, your brothers/sisters, cousins, neighbours, anybody! :D:D As long as you see a particular quality that you feel is suitable for a particular Saiunkoku character - such as a particular smile, or an expression - it doesn't even have to be a full-face/body likeness! ^^
