Casting Finding a Pulse

1 min read

As I go further and further along with Finding a Pulse, this new novel I’m working on, I find myself visualizing the cast. I thought it might be a fun FYI to introduce you all to the characters and put up the cast I picture here on the blog, for later when it comes out.

This is Sonnet Mendoza, the main character. She’s a nurse, aspiring to be a surgeon. I chose Vanessa Hudgens because she fits the bill exactly as I see Sonnet in my mind.

This is Griffith Parker, her love interest. He’s a veteran who’s working graves as a hospital security officer, and going through the Police Academy during the days. I chose Liam Hemsworth, because – uh, he’s a Hemsworth! 😉

This is Enrique. He’s a phlebotomist at the hospital where Sonnet works. He’s her gay BFF (and is in a relationship with another man), and often doles out advice on all matters concerning the heart. I chose Spanish actor Ferran Calderon.

This is Avani Singh, the head nurse in Sonnet’s ER department. She’s a bit of a sage with sass. I chose Iranian-born actress Shohreh Aghdashloo, because I love her throaty voice, and all of her work.

This is Dr. MacIntyre, a bit of a crusty old genius who is Chief of Medicine, who’s a bit ill-tempered but in a friendly sort of way. I chose Harrison Ford, because, enough said.
