Jeremy Irons provided the voice of Scar in "The Lion King" and was Bruce Willis' adversary in the 3rd Die Hard movie.

  T' answer your Question? I would love to see a movie based on this series! As for the Cast I will leave that to others.

I think that Wentworth Miller would be an outstanding Duncan.  He has that quiet dignity that I think whichever actor plays him would need to possess.

Brion Haldane-Brad Pitt

Nigel Haldane-Daniel Craig

I thought that all the Haldane men were dark-haired.  Why suggest two blonds?

Perhaps.  Pitt's too pretty, though.

It will be good to have a Deryn movie!! I'm forcing my brain to find some good casting but...I can't imagine someone SO good to play Morgan, eh eh. And don't know lots of the names of actors you named so...let's try!
What do you think about a shaved  ;D Josh Holloway for him? Yes, he's a little older but not so much. Or maybe Paul Walker?
For Kelson, I imagine the Drew Fuller of some years ago.

I think that Shia Labof would be great as Kelson, with Harrison Ford as his father.   :)

Harrison is too old to be Brian, he could play Camber, Kelsons great--grandfather

I like  Harrison Ford, but I just can't see him as Camber, I'm afraid. I'd always be looking for the wookie.  Peter O'Toole, although he's a little old for it now, is more my image of Camber.

But I know the perfect person to play Loris: Ian Richardson, who was the wonderfully awful Francis Urqhart in the PBS series House of Cards back in the nineties. He can play distinguished with an undercurrent of nastiness beautifully.

The person who looks most like Morgan as I see him is Julian Sands.

I recently saw Peter O'Toole as a high church man in an episode of "The Tudors" (which I love and if you have Showtime you should definitely check out) and you're right, Shiral.  He's got the right vibe for Camber, if only he were still in the shape he was in ten or fifteen years ago.  He's not aging well, and I pictured Camber as aging quite gracefully, still active well into what was considered old age in the medieval world.

Oh, and Shiral reminded me of who would make a good Conall Haldane.  Skandar Keynes, who plays Edmund in the Narnia movies.  He does devious quite well, and has the right look for a young Conall.

I think Chase Crawford would be perfect as an older teenage Kelson. I read this book years ago before Chase was even known (at least by me) and he is very close to how I pictured Kelson at 17-18. As for the younger Kelson, I have no idea.

As for the female cousin of Kelson's that he was suppose to marry, you know, the red head one? I pictured the daughter from the show Grounded For Life as her. And her mom played by the same person who played her mom on that show.

When I read books, I usually write down on a piece of paper which people I imagine as what characters. It's easier to remember characters that way. I'll find one of my Deryni books later on and add onto the characters I envisioned.

Alas yes, Peter O'Toole is showing the inevitable march of time a bit too much, now. But I still love his face--he looks like a man who's really lived. Which is a must for Camber!
