This took like a year and one long hour trying to figure out who I wanted to cast. I did more energy on researching this more than school which says a lot about me. So here is more long awaited TLC fancast.
Did you use real people for the book covers or are the people computer made.
Hello. Laia and Helene were real models who did photo shoots for the cover.
Elias was computer created based off of some MIddle Eastern and South Asian male model pics I sent over. I am a mother to South Asian boys and a sister to South Asian dudes, and a friend to Middle Eastern guys, so I just asked a few of them to give me thoughts on Elias. Once they were like “yes, he looks recognizably like a brown dude” then I figured we were in a good place.
By the way, looking up pictures of the hottest South Asian and Middle Eastern male models WAS A REAL CHORE, LET ME TELL YOU.
