Character Connection (3)

Character Connection is a meme created by Jen @ The Introverted Reader.

We all have characters we love. Let's spotlight these fantastic creations! Whether you want to be friends with them or you have a full-blown crush on them, you know you love them and want everyone else to love them too! Most of you will probably post about how much you love each character, but this is a great place for the more creative ones among you to let go and have fun! Write a love letter to Captain Wentworth. Write yourself into a scene with Anne and Diana. Draw a picture of yourself in Jamie's arms. The possibilities are endless. Be sure to post the book's title and author, and be very careful not to give away spoilers while talking about how much you love your characters.
 This weeks Character Connection will be...
Teagan & Finn
From Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton.

Tyger Tyger (Goblin Wars, #1)


SYNOPSIS:
Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures--goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty--are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn't worried. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She's focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems. Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right. The goblins are coming.

TEAGAN is a brave, love able character, she's one that I personally could relate to. Unlike other characters I've read about she's not just to girl in the corner with the gorillas at the zoo. SPOILER----But the girl that goes into another world to save her father.--- END SPOILER Even if it means she can easily become endangered. Teagan faces the face of danger with her cousin Finn and her little brother, and with them together she can easily save the day from the evil goblins. Teagan personally is a hero, or heroin in her case. She's a great character and deserves to be spotlighted.


FINN is a hot Irish legend, really what more can be said. He's love able much like Teagan and he'll go after goblins in split seconds and take'm down! Begin a girl I can't really relate much to Finn, but yeah I can sure say he's amazing. :) It also works that his name is one of my favorites.


Actors and Actresses well Here's a few, but I really couldn't find ones I like liked for the two. Basically, I Google searched Irish actors and actresses since both characters are Irish.


 Sarah Bolger, plays Mary Tudor on The Tudors an Showtime show. She's got some Irish blood in her, and she's one of the few that I could picture as Teagan.








Michelle Trachtenberg, she's been in a lot of films, but she might be able to play a good Teagan. I'm not sure...








Devon Murphy, he's in Harry Potter and plays Seamus Finnigan, well he might be one choice for Finn. But he doesn't look very manly in this picture...


Devon is really the only guy I could find, that I liked for Finn. Sure theres more. Do any of you have any suggestions?

I have this book sitting on my e-reader, but I haven't gotten a chance to read it yet. I've been hearing LOTS of good things about it though, and the fact that you did a Character Connection post on it speaks volum es. Maybe I'll have to give it a shot soon! :)
