The Real People Who Inspired the Characters in Siren's Mark

When I started writing Siren's Mark, I put together inspiration boards for each character to get an idea of what they looked like in my head. Here's some of the faces I've been looking at while writing...


ZANE


I thought of a few different actors for Zane, like Kyle Schmid or Harry Styles, but I kept coming back to Aidan Turner. His role as Mitchel the vampire in Being Human was just the perfect energy for this character.




AVA

I had just seen Lucy Hale play a terminally ill young woman in Life Sentence, so it was a natural fit to see her as Ava's chronically ill character.




KIERAN

From day one I saw Kieran as Avan Jogia. His aesthetic is exactly right for Kieran—androgynous, sexy, fun, and playful.





JEN

Jen took me a long time to find because it's hard to find curvy actresses. I used a photo of a Hot Topic model for a while, but eventually I landed on the adorable Kelly Marie Tran. Sadly the internet is low on gifs of her, so enjoy this photo...





KAMI

Kami had to be a sexy, feminine badass, so who better than Rosario Dawson? I'm pretty convinced she could kick my ass.



So how did you imagine these characters as? Who would you cast?
