Dream Cast

Author Rebecca Langham's Casting Picks for Beneath the Surface

  • ALESSIA- I picture her as a young Liv Tyler. Her appearance in ‘Lord of the Rings’ is almost perfect, given Alessia is a little elf-like herself, though the colouring isn’t quite right. She needs light, purple eyes, and hair full of wheat and sunset hues.If we went for an age-appropriate actress in the present, then Alycia Debnam-Carey would be my next choice. She has that inexplicable feminine fierceness that would suit Alessia.
  • LYDIA- Trawling random shows and clips on YouTube, I discovered a Chilean telenovela called Perdona Nuestros Pecados. One of the main characters, Mercedes, was played by a woman who struck me straight away as being perfect for Lydia. Her name is Soledad Cruz and I loved her so much I named a character in another one of my books after her.
  • FERMI- Like Alessia, Fermi and Peleus are ‘Outsiders’, an alien race with skin tones like the colour of the moon and unusual hair and eye colours. Fermi needs rust-coloured braids but, aside from that. Josh Hutcherson would fit nicely. He’s exuberant, cheerful, but still very emotive and compassionate.
  • RAFE- Rafe is such a cool guy. He’s a boy in a man’s body and you can’t not like him. Andrew Keegan, as he is now (not his teen movie days) would be a great Rafe.
  • SARA- Sara is, without a doubt, the most intelligent character in the book, with only Alessia coming close to sharing her ability to read people and situations. She’s seemingly demure and accommodating, but with Sara Taylor, things definitely aren’t what they appear. I can see Floriana Lima in this role.
  • HELEN- Lydia’s mother -- a hacker who engages in subversive activity designed to undermine the government. There’s no one else: Sigourney Weaver. Please? Helena Bonham Carter would also be fabulous, though.
  • DAMON- Lydia’s father -- every bit a politician. He has quite a journey ahead in Book 2. I love Jeff Goldblum in just about everything, so he could absolutely do it. Eric Roberts would be a fine second choice.

When a change in collective conscious sends the Outsiders, a group of aliens, to the shadows below the city, humans reason that the demonetization of their peers is simply more “humane”. There’s no question nor doubt. Just acceptance.
Lydia had embraced that sense of “truth” for as long as she can remember. The daughter of a powerful governor, she has been able to live her life with more comforts than most. Comforts can be suffocating, though, and when the opportunity to teach Outsider children in their private, “humane” community becomes available, she takes it.
What she finds beneath the city is far from the truth she had grown to know. There she meets Alessia, an Outsider with the knowledge and will to shake the foundation of all those who walk above ground. The two find a new and unexpected connection despite a complete disconnect from the technological world. Or perhaps in spite of it.

Still, it takes a lot more than an immutable connection to change the world. Lydia, Alessia, and a small group of Outsiders must navigate a system of corruption, falsehoods, and twists none of them ever saw coming, all while holding on to the hope to come out alive in the end. But it’s a risk worth taking and a future worth fighting for.
