I’m trying to find the right actor to ‘play’ Rumal. Rumal was originally inspired by my friend Sandra’s (Kassie) ex boyfriend. A lovely six foot+ African American gentleman. As my friend (in the book as well as real life) is only just five foot I just loved the idea of the contrast between those two so that’s how Rumal was originally inspired. But I haven’t been able to find the right actor yet! So I’ll describe more about Rumal and who he is and if any of you have a suggestion I’d love to hear it *grin*
Rumal is obviously tall and muscular with dark skin. He is a member of the Griffon Guard and linked with Kerak, a griffon with golden tints to his light tan coat. He had originally linked with a griffon called Ofelaan but she was killed by Jenviet about a decade ago (in accordance to The Arrival’s timeline). Rumal’s family raises horses on the island Delanta and the Br’Laan Estate is well known due to the pedigree of their horses. When he does get to visit home Rumal likes to spend time with his siblings. He is the eldest of the four and has two younger sisters and a brother. Rumal has rather unusual eyes, described as having the appearance of ‘molten gold’ the significance of which is explained in Book two (most things have a reason *grin*). Not surprisingly one of his favourite past times is horse riding and he’s rather good at it. When he does visit home he helps his father and Grandfather break horses and enjoys teaching Zeynon, his little brother, how to ride. Zeynon is just five and as the baby of the family, rather spoilt.
So does anyone have a suggestion as to the actor to play Rumal? All thoughts are welcome 🙂
Take care all!
