As always, while writing Homecoming, I had very definite people in mind for the characters.
Nick Spencer came through so clearly. Dark hair, a wolfish smile that doesn't come easily, highly successful but lonely. He works such long hours, he doesn't have many friends, but those he has are good ones. After his divorce, he doesn't let many people get close, so he's somewhat of an enigma. Except to those who've known him before. :)
Jim Caveziel was always Nick.
Jennie Mayfair likewise was a vivid person in my mind. Long, dark hair, sweet face but beneath the surface, a surprisingly strong spirit. The last two years have been hell on her, the longest years of her life, and she's not about to repeat them. She finally has her life on track. She's cautious about anyone, especially guys. Most especially Nick, who has the potential to crush her heart.
I had never heard of Anna Colwell before, but as soon as I saw her, I knew she was Jennie.
Finally Keith, Jennie's ex. Not that he'll acknowledge the divorce. He wants Jennie back. If he has to take desperate steps, he'll do it.
I absolutely love Seamus Dever. His acting abilities are underutilized on Castle. I think he needs to play a tortured soul like Keith to show off his acting chops. :)
Homecoming is a short story, so that's the full cast. Except for Madame Evangeline, of course. But she's the true enigma. Never seen, she works her 1 Night Stand magic behind the scenes. And she's always uncannily right!
