I'm really happy with this pick for Ari. I saw Naomi Scott on the sci-fi show 'Terra Nova' and she immediately reminded me of Ari.

Lol, Alex Pettyfer must be on a million fantasy cast lists for YA books but there's something about him that is so Charlie. And I loved finding images where his hair was longer like Charlie's in Smokeless Fire and then short for when he cuts it in Scorched Skies. Alex has that boy next door/bad boy quality that is perfect for Charlie.

Thank you to 'Bookworm' who suggested Abdel Rahman El Balaa. He is as close to a Jai as I've ever seen. Yum!
