Friday Fives | Casting the Marauders

Posted January 21, 2022 by TheNonbinaryLibrarian in friday fives / 0 Comments

As per usual, I started Friday Fives back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. In December, I decided to change it to Friday Fives instead to have more room for topics.

Along with most people in the world, I have a love/hate relationship with She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, and I’ve been having a difficult time reading and/or watching anything Harry Potter related (fanfiction not included because the best way to piss off her is to read Drarry fanfic). But I also don’t want her to ruin the books that I grew up with and what they mean to me. Easier said than done. And at this point, I may have to accept that they’ll always be ruined. For today, I’m going to think about who I would cast if we had a Marauders era movie/series.

Sophie Lillis, known for IT & I am Not Okay With This

I definitely think she could pull of Lily Evans fiery attitude and she also has blue eyes like Daniel Radcliffe keeping with the whole “you have your mother’s eyes.”

Finn Wolfhard, known for Stranger Things

If he doesn’t give off Sirius Black vibes, I don’t know who does!

Rohan Chand, known for Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle

Yes, I am one of those people who has the headcanon that Harry (and his dad) are Indian and you’re not going to convince me otherwise.

Jacob Tremblay, known for Room & Wonder

Jacob is an amazing actor and could play Remus so well!! And he just has that adorable, geeky vibe that Remus has too.

Jaeden Martell, known for Defending Jacob, IT, and The Book of Henry

Martell just has that thing of being able to play a morally grey character.

Okay, yes some of these actors are not British, don’t at me, I went mostly with actors that I knew. Also, I wanted to keep the actors ages to at the oldest 19 because let’s all remember that James and Lily were 21 when they died. THEY WERE LITERAL CHILDREN THAT WAS THE WHOLE POINT OF THEIR TRAGIC DEATHS! So, what do you think of my casting? What would be your casting for a Marauders era series/movie.

Happy Reading Darlings!
