[Note from Frolic: We are so beyond excited to have Lore Olympus creator Rachel Smthye guest post on the site today. If you haven’t read Lore Olympus yet….WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!]

Fantasy casting is a major cornerstone to many comic and animation-based fandoms, and Lore Olympus is no exception to this fun pastime. At a whopping 283 comments, the Dream Cast Nominee post is the most popular topic on the official Lore Olympus facebook group.

As the creator of Lore Olympus, one of the most common questions I’m asked is “Who would you cast?” This is actually a huge challenge becauseI find it hard to imagine the cast of Lore Olympus as real people. 

I’ve created a list of actors who I think best capture the spirit of the cast of Lore Olympus, rather than just their looks.

Please note: This is not this is my rock-solid opinion, but simply a brainstorm. There are heaps of amazing fan casts out there! Also, I didn’t cast everyone because Lore Olympus has a really large cast!

Hades

I’m going to pick a selection of men for Hades, as I feel it’s only fair.

Mads Mikkelsen.

Mikklesen is not for everyone, but he is for me.

Constantine Markoulakis

Constantine Markoulakis

Greece-born actor, Constantine Markoulakis, who is far too serious to exist in a gif format.

Justin Baldoni GIF

Justin Baldoni

Let’s face it, he’s got the shoulders. 

Zeus

Zeus Lore Olympus

Billy Zane 

Billy Zane has “charming” down to a fine art, but you know he’d have no issues playing a complete asshole.

Hera

Tonia Sotiropoulou

I don’t feel I need an explanation for this. 

Poseidon

Jason Mantzoukas

He has that chaotic energy to pull off Poseidon.

Eros

Daniel Levy or Donald Glover

Both excellent!

Psyche

Janelle Monáe

I just think Janelle is really, REALLY cool.

Hermes

I can’t unsee it.

Artemis

Tessa Thompson

Tessa could play any character in Lore Olympus, let’s be honest.

Hestia

Hestia Lore Olympus

Christina Hendricks

Christina has the face of an angel, but you know she’s capable of terrible things (in the best way possible of course.)

Athena

Gwendoline Christie

Duh.

Aphrodite

Lore Olympus Aphrodite

A tough one! Now I know how Paris of Troy felt!

Gabrielle Union or Keke Palmer.

Hecate

Hecate Lore Olympus

Hecate was one of the hardest to cast on account of her being such a badass.

Ali Wong, Eva Green, Krysten Ritter, or Aubrey Plaza.

Minthe

Lore Olympus Minthe

Mila Kunis

I too would let Mila Kunis treat me terribly and then buy her a purse.

Thetis

Thetis Lore Olympus

Emma Roberts.

She has that BDE.

Persephone

Persephone Lore Olympus

I’ve saved the best for last. Since you’ve made it this far, you get 5 nominees. 

Persephone Lore Olympus

Auli’i Cravalho, Alia Shawkat, Emily Browning, Kimiko Glenn or Emilia Clarke
