Everything Changes But You: The Cast

One of the fun parts of writing a book is imagining who the cast would be if it was adapted for film or TV (hey, I can dream, can’t I?) I usually do this after the book is finished, but occasionally I’ll see someone on TV and think to myself that they would make an excellent *insert character name* This happened last year while I was watching Mr Selfridge and I thought that Amy Beth Hayes (Kitty Hawkins in Mr Selfridge) would make an excellent Clementine in Everything Changes But You.

When I was writing the first draft of the book and I came to the scenes with Martine, her dialogue came to me in the style of Eva from Coronation Street (played by Catherine Tyldesley), which has never happened to me before. It was quite bizarre, but of course I’d have to cast Catherine Tyldesley as Martine now!

The rest of the characters were matched up later. If you look at the cast, you may think I’ve just poached most of the actors from Coronation Street. And you’d be right. I can’t help it – I’m a northern girl with northern characters!
