Since Outlander has officially become my favourite tv show, I have been thinking about other actors that should take the plunge and do a historical romance movie or tv show. I don`t know about you, but when I am reading a book I imagine an actor or model in the role. It`s probably because when I am reading about a sexy encounter I visualize a man that I have seen in that role already. I think because so many romance novels feature strapping alpha heroes that it`s likely why my imagination goes there.
So here is who makes my list of actors that I would like to see in breeches and Hessians!
Chris Hemsworth (perfect to play Eric MacSorley in The Hawk, Highland Guard series)
Tom Hardy (perfect to play Simon Hunt in Lisa Kleypas` Secrets of a Midsummer Night)
Hugh Jackman (What I imagine Roark to look like in Shana by Kathleen Woodiwiss)
Oscar Isaac (Sin in the Sin Trilogy by Georgia Cates)
Timothy Olyphant (Adrian in Shana Galen`s Lord and Lady Spy)
Penn Badgley (Lachlan MacTier in Suzanne Enoch`s Mad, Bad and Dangerous in Plaid)
Aaron Taylor Johnson (Kieran in Madeline Martin`s Deception of a Highlander)
Taylor Kitsch (Clayton in Whitney My Love by Judith McNaught)
