In Between Days Cast
For my first big series, dozens of characters have been created and the roles are, for fun, casted by me. But if you have a better idea, I won't object.
Lead Original Characters
Leonora (Norri) Digiorno (Alyson Hannigan) - this character is gay, and also represents the more literary side of not just me, but life in general. She's much more of a book-reader than the others. Doug Beckett (his original surname is a spoiler) (Steven Culp). Doug is driven by primal needs and has a lot of trouble expressing himself verbally. He's very much an action character. Pamela Hudson ( Kaley Cuoco) - Pamela is the pure id. I thought her up when I was listening to Amy Winehouse's You Know I'm No Good) and the character refused to leave. She is a physician who must heal herself. Melissa Madden (Catherine Bell) - as a living embodiment of the dichotomy between day and night, Melissa is bisexual. She's also (despite being a pilot) the most down to earth of the main characters. Charlotte Lilienne (Lili) O'Day (Naomi Watts) - Lili is me in a lot of ways, and not. At the start of Reversal, she is a woman down to her last chances, and very shut off from others. She represents fire and is often called the white-hot flame.

Bit Parts, References and Uncast Characters
There are plenty of names that are mentioned in quick passing. Rather than trying to figure out the look of these characters, instead they are just listed here, with their origination stories. If any of these characters graduates to supporting or even lead status (Susan Cheshire became a supporting character, for example), then they'll be moved. In the In Between Days series, a lot of these characters are seen or mentioned in either Temper or Fortune.
