    It’s funny how a lot of vids on network sites aren’t available to me, being in Europe, but I could see it without a commercial before 😉 Looks awesome. I can’t even begin to imagine how you must feel.

    Very intriguing! And interesting, because I’d assumed the dark-haired woman was Maura, not Jane. I can’t wait to see it!

    Ray,
    although the actors don’t quite fit my original mental images of the two characters, Angie’s and Sasha’s personalities were so perfectly meshed with their characters that I quickly overcame the discrepancies. I also see a practical reason for making Maura a blonde, in order to better contrast with dark-haired Jane.

    I can cope with Maura being blonde,and I can see why they did that..it’s just a pity that they couldn’t let Jane have short hair as you described her,Tess.
    But as Angie is known for her long dark hair I suppose she naturally wanted to keep that look..they both look good though!

    I love your books and now, I hope the serie is also good.

    I am deeply disappointed in the two actresses that are portraying Jane and Maura, they do not fit at all the descriptions from your book. Why would you allow this to happen? After reading all the series, the reader has a mental image of these women as best as you describe them in your boooks and then you see them on tv and they are totally opposite. I cannot assimilate this.

    Maria,
    yes, it takes some adjustment to see these actors as the characters. But they do such a good job portraying Jane and Maura. As for why I’d allow this casting — it’s really not in the author’s power to choose.

    What mattered to me was that they found strong actors with big followings, and they will help the series be a success.

    I can’t wait. This waiting an entire year and sometimes two for your next product is torture! But these actors’ responses and energy are just on half of a beat slower than how I “remember” them from the books. That’s the director though. But if it is Gerritsen, it will be fantastic.
