My personal Visual Cast of The Dante Chronicles: Vassago

As I write, I envision certain actors in the parts to give voice to the dialogues. Vassago Dante, or Sage, goes through ad rastic and unwanted emotional and mental growth, which continues throughout The Kindred, and the entire Dante Chronicles series. Forced against a wall of time to grow up and be the King he was born to be, Sage struggles and learns the hard way with every mistake he can possibly make.
Everytime I picked up my pen, only one face came to mind, and one particular role that actor portrayed gave me the “white board” I needed to create the comical, sad, scared, angry and ultimately heroic character.
In 1997, a young Ewan McGregor portrayed a robber on a long running TV show called “ER”. His portrayal of Duncan Stewart, a visiting Scott who robs a local market, was unlike anything I had seen on network TV. In just one hour’s time I watched the young actor spin like a top, spitting and spewing out every emotion from A-Z and back again with the precision of a well-seasoned and ridden-hard thespian.
His performance was stellar to say the least. You should have hated his character for being the weak and the "bad guy”, but you couldn’t because he really wasn’t. He was the lost lamb caught in the headlights of big city life and you loved him for it. He was thrust into a place he didn’t want to be, and couldn’t get out. You felt his anguish, you tasted his fear, and you cried at his tragic end. I’ve never before been so affected by an actor’s work in sixty minutes like McGregor’s here…he was, and still is, a force to reckon with, and he is still to this day, my Sage Dante, King of The Dominion.
I am certain that you, the reader, saw someone else when you first read Sage…I encourage you to share your “vision” here and why. I am always interested to hear what images my writing brings to mind in my readers.
