Tahereh Mafi recently announced on Twitter that Shatter Me has been optioned for TV by ABC Signature Studios. For the fans of this series – *cough* Kelly *cough* – I am pretty sure that there had been squeals of delight, and maybe some cartwheels of some sort.

The first thought that I had when I saw this tweet was, “Who will play who?”
We all know how the main characters’ looks based from the books, and we could speculate who’s going to be who, but in our minds, when we were reading this series, we have pictured how Adam, Warner, Juliette, and Kenji would look like in real life.
In my Ignite Me book review, I have posted photos of my ideal Warner and Adam.
I also imagined a Juliette.
But the most important thing for me is casting Kenji.
Recently, the trailer for the movie Attack on Titans has been making rounds, and the character of Eren caught my eye. I have seen some of Miura Haruma’s movies and TV series, but his character here caught my eye. So maybe…someone who resembles him would do?
