Film Fantasy Friday: Graceling

Ohhh yeah, you know it. I recently reread Kristin Cashore's novel Graceling because it's one of the 2010 Florida Teen Reads novels and pertains to my schooling and internship, and somehow I'd forgotten how TOTALLY BADASS IT IS. So here we are, journeying with Katsa and the disgustingly foxy Prince Po (Teletubby name aside), as they ferret out the horrible secret of Monsea. The book has quite a large cast, so here are a few of the most important ones:

Lady Katsa: played by Zara Phythian, Katsa is the niece of her land's king and used by him as a thug for enforcing his rule. Her Grace is presumed to be that of combat--she is capable of killing with her bare hands.

Prince Po: played by Matt Bomer, Greening Gandemalion (normally known as Po) is a prince also apparently Graced with the killing art.

King Leck: played by Guy Pearce, Leck is thought by the other kingdoms to be a kind ruler, if reclusive. But Katsa and Po discover that he is Graced as well, and is using his power for wicked ends.

Bitterblue: played by Elle Fanning, Bitterblue is Leck's daughter and is on the run from her twisted father when she is rescued by Po and Katsa.

Giddon: played by Aaron Johnson, Giddon is a young nobleman in love with Katsa and a member of the secret Council.

And that's how Diana casts it. All images pulled from Google and Wikipedia.
