Casting Call! Ember: Book 1
Today we cast the fun loving, easy going, best friend of Max...Kai Kadooka. His character is one of the few people that enters Max's life because of his love of music and not his fire-starting powers. The two friends are inseparable. Kai has a heart of gold and a silly sense of humor. I've had a hard time casting this character before...too many options. With the right wardrobe and makeup, many young actors out there could play the role.
But we'll give Jeremy Sumpter (Peter Pan, Sole Surfer) first dibs.
Strap some thick messy dreadlocks on him and I think he'd do fine. Until next time...M.D.
