My "The Night Circus" dream cast

I'm not a celebrity fan. While there are a few that I have liked over the years, I don't actively read about celebs, or follow any, or care about what they do, or don't do, in their private lives.

I've also never done a "Dream Cast" for a book before. I don't think about who could play whom in a book I love, because I don't know a lot of celebrities, and I don't really think about it at all, ever.

But a recent discussion in a group at GoodReads had me thinking about it for the first time ever, during my re-read (re-listen) of The Night Circus ~ my absolutely favorite book!! I get worried about if they would actually do a movie, what if they would mess it up? I'd want the book just done, nothing added and nothing taken out. It's perfect like it is.

So, who would I want in my dream cast? Well, I haven't figured everyone out yet, but I had a few thoughts last night while listening. Subject to change, here's what I think. I may have taken liberty with ages/race and so on. These are in the order that I came up with them as some were easier to cast than others, for me. :)

Do you cast celebs in books you love?
