She selected movie stars for her book's characters as if preparing to cast an actual film. Mine's just a little different. I'm a visual person. When creating The Circle of Friends, I selected actors and athletes who closely resembled my main characters. So while the cast below is probably too old to play late teens to early 20's aged people, they do represent a basic idea of what each character looked like in my head.

I already had a thing for actor Christian Bale, so when I found this photo, I knew I had my Jason.
I never found a photo that fit my dark-haired tomboy to a T, but Fairuza Balk was close enough.
