Let me introduce... Ben

Let me introduce is a series of posts introducing some of the characters from, Shades of Atlantis. Each is accompanied by an image of an actor I think matches the appearance of the character as I see them in my head.

Ben is Triona’s younger brother by ten months and they have always been close. Ben can be a bit of a joker but can also be overprotective at times; his outward bravado hides his sensitivity. He cares deeply for his family and his friends, and will always put them first.
Unlike Triona, his view of love has not been colored by their parent’s death and he knows what he wants in the future. Ben is popular with the local girls but he prefers to hang out with his friends. He isn’t secretive by nature but he can keep secrets if required. He is brave, strong willed and not easily swayed from his decisions.
*Probably no introductions needed here. This Zac Efron, I remember thinking as I was writing Shades of Atlantis, that if Zac just had red hair and green eyes, he would be the perfect image for Ben. So, here he is.


  1. How fun! I love to see who writers would "cast" as their characters, and I like that you're giving us a little background into the psyche to go with the image.

  2. I think it's a really good idea to illustrate your character studies with pics of the celebrities you imagine that they look like. Makes them seem much more real (and much better looking if you choose a pic of Zac Efron!)

  3. I love seeing what the authors has pictured as their characters, or at least as close as possible. Thanks!
