Who do you think should play Acheron?

Work on the Dark Hunters television series has begun.  Apparently Sherrilyn Kenyon is pleased with the progress so far and has even commented on casting for Acheron.  Ms. Kenyon's comment:  "The actor they want for Acheron... yes, he’s tall and he’s everything—E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G—you dream of Ash being.  Fingers-crossed we can have him as Ash."

Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series is one of the best selling paranormal romance series.  To date, there are 22 full length novels in this series as well as numerous short stories.  I love that this series gives us a new take on vampires while mixing in a lot of the greek mythology that I really enjoy.

Throughout the series, Acheron has been one of the biggest characters.  Moving past his humble, tortured beginnings to the man he is now has been a feat in itself.  I can't imagine that trying to cast him in the T.V. series would be easy.  The image in my head of how he looked when he was "human" is very different than how I picture him looking now which makes it even harder.





This is how I picture him in his early years.











This is more or less how I picture him now.  Maybe a little straighter hair though and the tattoo has a little red in it.








So, who do you think should play Acheron?

    1. You've got to read them when you get a chance, they're great. I've had to split it up since there's so many in the series but it's worth it :)

  3. Travis Fimmel is only 6'. I think they will cast someone taller. Jared Padelecki is really built & 6'4. I cant wait to see who its gonna be.

  5. This is a big jump because this guy is not an actor, but take a look and really tell me if this is not Ash:

    His name is Jyrki and he's the vocalist of a European band called 69 Eyes. He has the hair, the height (6'5), the voice and the very mysterious vibe.

    2. I could see him in the role.

    3. He would be great! But Ash is 21 years old and in more than one book it says he looks 19 and is always carded in bars. I can't imagin Jyrki being carded.

  6. The actor for ash is Jason Momoa or Joe Manganiello! Both are tall, very well built and simple mouth watering!

    1. I think Jason Momoa is a hottie and might make a good Ash

    2. I NEVER even thought of Jared Padelecki He would be great he has that face and the hight. But I also think alexander skarsgard would be a great fit.

  7. Jamie Campell Bower would be perfect!! i doubt they will find anybody tall enough to play Ash but that is what camera trickery is for

  8. I used to imagine Ash as Travis Fimmel. But he is a little old now to play Ash.

    Maybe Taylor Kitsch. I read somewhere that Sherrylin wanted Douglas Booth to play Ash. I can't only hope they find a perfect Ash
