Dark-Hunter Dream Cast

by NYmovieGIRL | created - 25 May 2015 | updated - 06 Feb 2018 | Public

With Sherrilyn Kenyon's book series being opted for adaptation, here are my picks for who should be cast.

1. Garrett Hedlund

Actor | Tron

Born in Roseau, Minnesota, Garrett John Hedlund is the son of Kristi Anne (Yanish) and Robert Martin Hedlund. He has two older siblings, Nathaniel and Amanda. His father is of Swedish descent and his mother is of German and Norwegian ancestry.

Garrett spent his early years growing up on a farm in a ...

Acheron Acheron is the enigmatic leader of the Dark-Hunters how to hone in their powers. First and oldest of their kind he teaches all new Dark-Hunters. Very little is known about Atlantean aside from his knowledge is vast and his understanding of the human heart is deep.

Even though he was the youngest when he died, Acheron was the first Dark-Hunter ever appointed. He is also the writer of the Dark-Hunter Creed and of the Code we abide by.

Because of his Dark-Hunter age and the fact that he fought the Daimons alone for thousands of years, he is more phantom than real. He interacts with the other Dark-Hunters on a whim, and his sage advice is often sought.

Eccentric and idiosyncratic to the extreme, he is a legend among legends. The Dark-Hunters never know what to expect when Acheron enters a scene. He runs the full gamut from friendly to intimidating to downright scary.

It is said of him that there has never been a mortal born who could equal his physical perfection. He possesses a raw, rare kind of charisma.

To look at him is to want him. To see him is to ache to touch him.

Artemis herself once said of him:

He had been built to please, and trained to pleasure. Everything about him from the sleek muscles that rippled to the deep, erotic timber in his voice seduced anyone who came into contact with him.

Like a lethal wild animal, he moved with a primal promise of danger and masculine power. With the promise of supreme sexual fulfillment.

No one knows why he became what he did. Then again, no one knows much about him. Period. And he likes it that way. Trying to get any personal information out if him is an impossible task.

No one even knows what his real hair color is.

2. Esmé Bianco

Actress | Game of Thrones

British-born Esmé Bianco is an internationally-acclaimed actress and performer, best-known for her role as "Ros" in the Emmy Award-winning show, Game of Thrones (2011).

Degree-educated in Drama and Theatre Arts at London's Goldsmiths University; Bianco's acting career started with performances in ...

Artemis The daughter of Leto and Zeus, Artemis is the twin sister of Apollo. She is the goddess of the hunt, childbirth, fertility and plagues, and she is associated with the moon. Most modern legends portray her as a virginal goddess, however in ancient Greek writings she was a dichotomy. While she was called virginal and shown to be such in some works, she was also shown to be a lover of many Greek heroes including Orion and even of her own twin brother, Apollo.

In the context of the DH mythos, she is a primary goddess who rules over all the Dark-Hunters.

When the Apollites were cursed by Apollo, they were taken in by the goddess Apollymi who showed them how to steal human souls to circumvent Apollo’s decree. Now called Daimons, they turned against mankind. Apollo sought his sister’s aid in handling them. For reasons unknown, Artemis went to Acheron (common belief is that he was a renowned Atlantean hero whose bravery had caused him to be spared when Apollo cast the city into the ocean- we know this isn’t true, but propaganda reigns supreme) and convinced him to help her hunt down and destroy the Daimons who were preying on pregnant women and children. Those of us in the know, know that she did it to tie Acheron to her for eternity.

Neither Acheron nor Artemis has ever disclosed the exact nature of their relationship. In many ways, they act as if the other doesn’t exist. All that is known is that Acheron must seek her out whenever a Dark-Hunter wishes to reclaim his soul. Since no other Dark-Hunter is allowed in the goddess’s presence, Acheron is often sent in to ask her questions or to clarify her orders.

She is ruthlessly protective of her army and of Acheron. Her affinity for Acheron is sometimes an aggravation for certain Dark-Hunters who can’t understand why he alone is able to see her while any other man who dares such is put to death. She has placed her mark on all her Dark-Hunters and demands a sacrifice for each one who would seek his or her freedom.

3. Angelina Jolie

Actress | Girl, Interrupted

Angelina Jolie is an Academy Award-winning actress who rose to fame after her role in Girl, Interrupted (1999), playing the title role in the "Lara Croft" blockbuster movies, as well as Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005), Wanted (2008), Salt (2010) and Maleficent (2014). Off-screen, Jolie has become ...

Apollymi The Goddess of Life, Death and Wisdom, Apollymi is the daughter of Chaos (the formless matter that birthed the universe) and Zenobi (the Atlantean north wind). She holds many epitaphs including: The Destroyer, The Bringer, The Giver, Biosia (Life), Thanata (Death), Magosa (Wisdom), and Fonia (The Killer).

Capricious and vain, she is the most powerful of all the Atlantean gods and can only be controlled by her half-brother and husband, Archon. She travels in the wind and can strike down her victims in an instant. It is said those who are about to die by her hand can glimpse her blond hair swirling in the mist a second before they die and at the instant of their death, the last vision they hold is her merciless pale swirling eyes.

A goddess of contradictions, she tends to be loving and kind in one breath and then brutal and cold in the next. No one, not even her husband, is safe from her wrath.

Fearful of her vindictive nature, the other Atlantean gods joined together and imprisoned her in Kalosis (a hellish plane between dimensions).

There are various legends that tell of her release. Some claim it is only by the sacrificial blood of an Atlantean that she can be freed, while others claim it is strictly the hand of her lost son Apostolos that can free her.

Because of her imprisonment, she, alone, escaped death when Atlantis was destroyed (at least that’s the tale the Greeks tell). Apollymi has a different version.

Now she sits in her prison, awaiting her release so that she can wreak her havoc across the earth and bring about Telikos–the end of the world as we know it.

4. Ksenia Solo

Actress | Black Swan

Ksenia Solo is a Latvian-Canadian actress. She was born in Riga, Latvia in to an artistic family.

Ksenia was the youngest actor in Canadian television history to...

The Simi "Hello, I’m the Simi and it is more than a name it is an attitude. I would tell you what Simi means, but then I’d have to kill you and though you are probably quite tasty, Akri gets all cranky when I snack on humans. Akri knows, but he’s not telling neither.

I have been with akri for a long, long time. How long? I don’t know. It’s something like dog years. What is a dog year? I had a dog once, but I ate him so he didn’t last a whole year. He snarled at me and I thought, hmmm, snarling dog…barbecue which leads me to my favorite food. Barbecued anything. I used to have a favorite kind of barbecue but akri says I can’t talk about that anymore and that it’s off the menu. He get real upset when the Simi talk about it so I don’t talk about it no more.

Where was I? Oh, I remember now. I protect akri, but he often says someone needs to protect him from me. I don’t know what he means by that. The Simi is a good protector. I eat anyone who annoys him. Anyone who don’t like akri…one word for them…barbecue. Sometimes toast would work, but I find toast too crispy so I prefer barbecue.

As for my favorite Squire, that Nicky is real nice. I don’t want to barbecue him. But he do look mighty tasty. Akri says I can’t say in public what I really want to do to him so I won’t. But he’s real nice to the Simi when she calls so I like him and I won’t make him barbecue.

My favorite time is now because now no one tries to tie me to a stake and make barbecued Simi. I did not like them people from long ago cause they would look at me and scream, then try to exorcise me. Exercising is good if you are Richard Simmons, but it is not good if you are the Simi. They did not like the Simi, so the Simi did not like them.

On that note, akri says the Simi has to sign off now or he will take away my plastic. I like my plastic–it make people do all kinds of nice things for the Simi. It gets me stuff. Akri also say if I don’t get offline he’ll turn off my QVC which would not make me happy and then I would have to barbecue akri. Since I am very attached to akri, I cannot kill him so I have to go now. Bye-bye."

5. Jackson Rathbone

Actor | The Last Airbender

Internationally recognized for his breakout role as Jasper Hale in The Twilight Saga (2008-2012) Jackson Rathbone was born to American parents living in the Republic of Singapore. Growing up internationally, Jackson spent his adolescent years living in Tananger, Norway and Midland, Texas. After ...

Nick Gautier "I’m what most people call poor white trash. My father was a career felon, my mother a stripper. I grew up in the back rooms of the strip club where she worked, helping the bouncers hustle clients.

I was in and out of trouble a lot as a kid and we won’t talk about how thick my juvenile record is. Thank God, they seal those things.

Anyway, I took the wrong turn down the right road one night when my “friends” decided to do something I knew I wouldn’t be able to live with. So instead, they damn near killed me. Next thing I know, Kyrian was there, and he saved my worthless life. He took me off the streets, gave me a legal job and got me back on the right track.

Though I find him offensively annoying 95% of the time, I owe him everything and I would die or kill to protect him and the rest of the Dark-Hunters."

6. Cara Delevingne

Actress | Suicide Squad

Cara Jocelyn Delevingne was born in London, England, to Pandora Anne (Stevens) and Charles Hamar Delevingne, a property developer. Her parents are both from prominent upper-class families, with her ancestors including Viscounts (Greenwood), Baronets (Hulton, Faudel-Phillips), Majors and Lord Mayors...

Katra Only Kat knows her origins and she’s not real big on sharing. A former handmaiden to Artemis, she now serves Apollymi whom she adores. She’s quick and deadly and lives to taunt any male she can find, especially Stryker. She has a soft spot for Simi and baby Eric. And she will fight to the death to protect anyone she loves.

There are those who believe she was born of the gods, but few are willing to question that. Some even claim she has powers stronger than Artemis. But again, only a fool would question it. One interesting tidbit is the tattoo she has on her stomach of a sun… some say it’s the mark of the Destroyer, others believe it’s the mark of Apostolos. Only Kat knows for sure and she’s not talking.

7. Elizabeth Reaser

Actress | Twilight

Elizabeth Ann Reaser was born July 2, 1975 in Bloomfield, Michigan, to Karen (Weidman) and John Reaser. As the middle child in a trio of sisters, she grew up in rural Milford, MI.

Selena The middle of the sisters, Selena is the wildest of the bunch. She lives her life fully and is truly outrageous.

She met Bill in high school, and they dated off and on all throughout college. Bill wasn’t sure he was ready to take on her antics for the rest of his life. But once they were arrested (for skinny dipping) and spent the night in jail, he was hooked. They were married three days later in a goat pasture (don’t ask).

Bill’s grateful he had the guts to marry her. And also A) that his father is loaded and B) that he went to law school.

He has acted in a number of Australian television series and first came to international notice with his role as a gladiator recruit "Agron" in the series Spartacus: ...

Stryker Stryker is one of the most ruthless of Daimons, and yet he has a code of honor that he follows. The son of Apollo, he was one of the first Apollites cursed and he hates his father passionately. He also hates Acheron and virtually everyone else. The only person he’s loved in thousands of years was his son Urian. Although Stryker is loyal to his Spathi army.

Sworn to Apollymi, Stryker is also plotting her death. He’s just a really unhappy Daimon. He feels as if he’s been betrayed by everyone and he has vowed to see his father, Apollymi and Acheron fall at any cost. All in all, he’s one bad mother and he makes no bones about it.

His two distinguishing features are that he has black hair (he hates his father so much, he refuses to be blond) and his swirling silver eyes that are identical to someone else’s.

9. Manu Bennett

Actor | 30 Days of Night

"Shall We Begin!", the battlecry of The undefeated Gaul Crixus first bought Manu Bennett's voice & acting career to international attention. Spartacus: Gods of the Arena (2011) spoke a universal language that slowly but surely captured a massive audience. The the show lost lead actor Andy Whitfield...

Savitar Savitar is an interesting… something. No one, not even Acheron, is exactly sure what or who he is. The man likes to be a vague myth. But his calm exterior belies the turmoil beneath. He can be volatile and deadly. Some say he was born human while others deny there’s anything human about him at all. He is dangerous and mysterious. Truly he is a being unto himself. More powerful than Zeus, more wise than Solomon, he keeps his own company and prefers it that way. His most noted feature is that he has a large number of tattoos on his body.

Maybe one day we’ll actually know something more about him… maybe.

Julian of Macedonia Julian was born the son of a legendary Spartan commander. Reared in the manner of his Spartan brethren, he knew no love of any kind. His childhood was harsh and unforgiving. As a man, he fought his way to the top and became the most feared Macedonian general of his time. He was the commander who trained Kyrian of Thrace and once Kyrian attained his own command status, the two of them cut a trail of slaughter through the Mediterranean and nearly brought Rome to her knees.

Unfortunately, an act of brutal betrayal brought Julian into direct conflict with the Greek gods and caused him to be cursed into a scroll that was later bound into a book. For the rest of eternity, he is a sex slave whose only goal is to satisfy his summoner for the course of a month.

By the way, he’s very good at what he does…

As a legendary Macedonian general, he cut a trail of slaughter through the Mediterranean during the 4th Macedonian War. Chroniclers wrote that he would break the Roman stranglehold on the known world and claim Rome for his own.

He would have succeeded had he not been betrayed by his wife into the hands of his enemies.

Amanda and Tabitha Devereaux

Identical twins they may be but you don't find two people more different from one another than Amanda and Tabitha Devereaux

Amanda is an accountant by trade, Amanda wants nothing to do with the kooky paranormal world of her sisters.

She likes normality, but after being mistaken for Tabitha by an ancient malcontent, all Hades breaks loose and her life will never be the same...if she makes it through the ordeal.


Tabitha aka Tabby is something else. The only question is what? She walks to her own beat and takes nothing from anyone. She is the baddest human who stalks the night. Her powers include: Intuition, psychometry and empathy which Acheron taught her to dampen for her own sanity. However, it can still be overwhelming for her. She lashes out in anger when that happens. She is also a Daimon magnet because of her powers which is what led her to becoming a slayer. Talon is the one who saved her from her first Daimon attack when she was 13, walking home from the library.

She was an anthropology major in college and has her M.A. in Ancient Civilizations. Her specialty was Rome.

Talon aka Speirr of the Morrigantes Talon is the son of a Druid High Priest and Celtic Queen. He, himself, was a High Chieftain in Britain who fought back invaders and secured his clan against any and all threats.

After the deaths of his aunt, uncle, wife and son over a short period of time, he was told that his ancient gods had cursed him. That they would plague his sister, his people and his lands so long as he lived. To appease the gods, he would have to be sacrificed to them.

Once his clan had Talon secured to the altar, they killed his sister before his eyes and then turned on him. He gladly ceded his soul for revenge against them.

Unlike the other Dark-Hunters, he is entirely detached from this world. Talon walks between this realm and the next with the help of Spirit Guides.

There are those who speculate that should he ever free his banished emotions, the volatile Celtic blood that flows through him will destroy not only him, but anyone near him.

Talon’s powers are: commanding the elements/weather, healing, projection thoughts/altering perceptions, pyrokinesis and telekinesis. He can shield himself and others from the public by twisting/projecting thoughts. He talks to animals.

Sunshine Runningwolf Sunshine was just your average flibbertigibbet artist into granola, bare feet and art, until a late night encounter showed her another side of the world that she never dreamed existed. It also showed her a part of her own history, she wouldn’t have guessed in her wildest imaginings.

Zerek of Moesia Zarek was born the unwanted son of a Greek slave and a Roman senator. Moments after his birth, his mother gave him to a servant with orders to kill the infant. The servant took mercy on the child and took him to his father who had no more use for the baby than his mother had so Zarek became the whipping boy of a noble Roman family.

No one knows how he died or why he traded his soul- he keeps it as a well-guarded secret. He trusts no one. He seldom interacts with other Dark-Hunters and when he does, it is always grudgingly and with the utmost disdain for them.

Because of his steadfast denial to follow any orders (even those of Artemis) and his lack of regard for anyone other than himself, he is kept in isolation in Alaska where his activity is seriously limited and closely monitored. There are many who fear he will one day unleash his powers against the humans as well as the Daimons.

Astrid Astrid had lost all faith in the better nature of humans. Tired of judging their black hearts, she wanted nothing to do with any of them. But when Acheron came to her and asked for a rare favor, she couldn’t deny him.

It was the best decision she ever made.

Valerius Magnus The son of a Roman Senator, Valerius became a Roman general by age 22. He led conquests throughout Greece, Gaul and Britannia. For a most obvious reason, he doesn’t play well with most Dark-Hunters and it is imperative we keep him far away from Kyrian, Kell, Zarek and Zoe.

Val is truly ostracized from the rest of his brethren. Retta has tried from time to time to bring him more into the DH circle, but the older Dark-Hunters refuse to forgive him for his past crimes.

No one knows what brought him into our circle.

18. Jensen Ackles

Fang Kattalakis One of six children, Fang is the undisputed black sheep of the family. He is the quintessential Hunter who lives to stalk his prey. Nothing gives him greater pleasure than that moment in the fight when his opponent learns he’s about to go down…hard.

Fang asks for nothing and expects to get it. Alienated from all of his family, he walks the world alone. He is the true lone wolf. A drifter, a rogue, and the worst sort of scoundrel. And if you want to live, don’t ask how he got hooked up with Thorn.

She is the darling of the Peltier clan and the future of their seat on the Omegrion. Something they all take very seriously.

But for all her fun qualities, Aimee harbors a dark secret. One she’s afraid to breathe a word. One she fears might end her very life.

Wren Tigarian Wren is a hybrid mix of a Snow Leopard mother and a White Tiger father. As a result, he can take either form at will. He was an abomination that should never have been allowed to be brought into the world. When his parents began to suspect his powers, his mother tried to kill him. No one is quite sure what happened to either of his parents after that.

Because of their brutality and extreme alpha natures, both the White Tiger and Snow Leopard branches of the Katagaria are all but extinct. Many believe Wren is the last of his kind on either side.

Half-dead, he was taken to Sanctuary when he was barely more than a cub.

Now he runs Tigarian Industries and is a power to be feared.

Vane Kattalakis One of six children, Vane holds a dangerous secret that would get him killed if his pack ever learned it. He was born of a forbidden union and has spent his life trying to protect his siblings who were never fully accepted by their patria. He is fully aware of the fact that every minute he lives will most likely be his last.

Hunted by the Arcadians and condemned by the Katagaria, Vane is resolute in his protection of Fang and Anya. He is a merciless soldier who refuses to let anyone inside his wounded heart. He learned a long time ago to reject the world before it rejects him.

Funny how one unexpected night changed everything…

Fury Kattalakis Fury was born to two parents who hated each other. One Arcadian, the other Katagaria. His Arcadian mother raised him, believing he would be her precious Aristos son– he was to be her furious revenge against the Kattagaria who had brutalized her and her clan. Instead, when Fury hit puberty and gained his Were-Hunter powers, he turned from Arcadian to Katagaria–something he tried his best to keep hidden. But when the one person he trusted, his girlfriend, found out, she told his family. Enraged, they banded together to kill him.

But Fury is always a survivor. Lethal, unpredictable and feral. Leaving England, he found his father’s people where he was even more cautious, refusing to tell anyone of his parentage. But once his brothers Fang and Vane learned of his birth, they adopted him. Now he rules the very patria is father once claimed. But leadership comes at a price and it comes with lethal enemies who will stop at nothing to kill him.

That war has now come to his doorstep and threatens not only his people, but those at Sanctuary as well. The only way for Fury to save his people is to trust the same woman who’s already betrayed him.
