Rumours from E-Online suggest Dakota Fanning is in talks to play Jane in the next Twilight-series movie, New Moon.
I’ve not read NEW MOON, but I learned Jane is “a member of Italy’s Volturi, the most deadly group of bloodsucking killers”.
E-Online says “In the casting notice we got our hands on earlier this month, Jane is described as a petite blonde with a “Botticelli angel-like face…[and] crimson irises.” While fellow Volturi guards Demetri & Felix “are three times the size of her, they are terrified of her,” the casting notice reads.”
Which, as characters go, sounded kind of familiar.
Remember Laurell K. Hamilton’s first novel in the Anita Blake series, GUILTY PLEASURES? Before Jean Claude became Master of the City, there was another. Her name was Nikolaos:
She had been about twelve or thirteen when she died. Small, half-formed breasts showed under a long flimsy dress. It was pale blue and looked warm against the total whiteness of her skin. She had been pale when alive; as a vampire she was ghostly. Her hair was that shining white-blonde that some children have before their hair darkens to brown. This hair would never grow dark.
And then I was reminded of Claudia, the six year old turned vampire in Anne Rice’s INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE.
Interesting, yes? Coincidental sucking from the creative collective, or not, I don’t care. I just don’t want to see any more little girl vampires. Please.
