If We Could Cast it: Sempre by JM Darhower

Sempre by JM Darhower is one of those books that both Gel and I fell in love with. It had been confirmed that it was going to be made into a movie and you can imagine how we both squeed at the news! We’re hoping it’ll be picked up again.

Which actors will be cast? We don’t know yet, but we wanted to show you who we’d like to see playing the roles…


My Carmine De Marco would be Sean O’ Pry:


Carmine 2

Carmine 4 I could see Ellen Page as Haven:

About Elena

Literature is my passion. I love reading so much that I spend countless hours in bookstores and libraries. I have a soft spot for poetry and art. I like traveling and discovering new places. I can't do without a book.

    Now I’m squeeing!!! I had no idea!!! Sempre is one of my favorite books, along with Captive and Seduced (which BTW, were recommended by you:). This time, I like Gel’s choices, especially…ahem…Corrado. Thank you for this wonderful news. I’m looking forward to the movie. xxx


  2. A MOVIE!!!! I had no idea!!!!!!!!!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
    Okay okay … … I am so happy for J.M. This book is so close to my heart, I was teary and cried through so much of it because it struck a cord with me. J.M. wrote such a beautiful story touching on social issues and I’m glad she is getting the recognition she deserves.

    I like Selma at Celia, so beautiful. I think her pose and presence would really bring her out.

    Sean as Carmin!! Yes! That is who I imagined him to look like.

    Caitlin as Haven and Viggo and Vincent definitely something I can see.

    Oooo complicated Corrado, Raoul is in my mind too.

    Now what about Dom, I really enjoyed him and thought he was a cutie too.

    Beautiful casting ladies!!

    Btw … am I the only one waiting in nail biting anticipation for December! I need my Hummingbird and Carm. πŸ˜‰


  3. Love this! You girls did great casting!!

    Whenever I hear the word sempre my heart skips a beat. All because one talented, amazing woman created this miracle. I love reading, I read all the time and there’s a lot of books that I love, but there’s just something more to Sempre. I love Sean as Carmine. Raoul is my Corrado, even though Ben is pretty hot, too. I’ve always imagined Peter Facinelli as Vincent.
    I soo can’t wait for the unnamed sequel.
