12: Catherine Earnshaw | We chose Zooey Deschanel to play Catherine Earnshaw because she has that look that we envisioned Catherine to have. Also she's the type of actress that could pull off Catherine's feisty personality and truly develop the character. She has played similar roles before, where's she's toyed with emotions and had a slight mental quality to her. | "It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now; so he shall never know how I love him: and that, not because he's handsome, Nelly, but because he's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same; and Linton's is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire." (Bronte, Ch. 9)
13: Hindley Earnshaw | We chose James Franco to play Hindley because he has played roles before where he's been very angry, depressed, and on the edge of a psychotic break. | You must exchange horses with me: I don't like mine; and if you won't I shall tell your father of the three thrashings you've given me this week, and show him my arm, which is black to the shoulder.' (Bronte, Ch. 4)
14: Heathcliff | We chose Alan Rickman to play Heathcliff because he has that dark and brooding demeanor that matches Heathcliff's perfectly. His role in the Harry Potter movies seems similar to Heathcliff because his character is very cross and cruel, but has a personal heartbreak that causes him to act that way. | "And I pray one prayer--I repeat it till my tongue stiffens--Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living! You said I killed you--haunt me, then! Be with me always--take any form--drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you!" (Bronte, Ch. 16)
15: Edgar Linton | We chose Matthew Gray Gubler to play Linton mainly because of his looks. He just looks like we envisioned Linton. He has that scrawny, awkward, and wimpy look to him. Yet he also has this faint look of elegance to his features that we thought Linton would posses. | I discerned a soft-featured face, exceedingly resembling the young lady at the Heights, but more pensive and amiable in expression. It formed a sweet picture. The long light hair curled slightly on the temples; the eyes were large and serious; the figure almost too graceful. (Bronte, Ch. 8)
16: Isabella Linton | Kirsten Dunst was the first actress that came to mind when we were thinking of people to play Isabella Linton. not just because of her red hair (we envisioned her to have red hair), but of her "damsel in distress" quality. She's always struck us as an actress that has a firey personality, but always has a dependence on men. | Take care, Ellen. He wishes to provoke Edgar to desperation. I'll die first. The single pleasure I can imagine is to die, or see him dead. (Bronte, Ch. 14)
17: Cathy Linton | Naomi Watts became our Cathy because of her appearance. She had the blue eyes of her "mother" Zooey Deschanel and she has that dainty look. It's the very fragile sort of beautiful, but you can see that steely determination that she possess. | "I’ll put my trash away, because you can make me if I refuse," answered [Cathy], closing her book, and throwing it on a chair. "But I'll not do anything, though you should swear your tongue out, except what I please!" (Bronte, Ch. 3)
18: Hareton Earnshaw | We chose Taylor Lautner to play Hareton because of his "brustish" appearance. He seems very brooding and shares similar characteristics with Hareton. They both have that loving nature deep down, even if they might not show it at first. | ...his dress and speech were both rude, entirely devoid of the superiority observable in Mr. and Mrs. Heathcliff; his thick brown curls were rough and uncultivated, his whiskers encroached bearishly over his cheeks, and his hands were embrowned like those of a common labourer: still his bearing was free, almost haughty, and he showed none of a domestic’s assiduity in attending on the lady of the house. (Bronte, Ch. 2)
19: Linton Heathcliff | Matthew Gray Gubler ended up being our Linton because he is very awkward and odd at first appearance. Yet when you observe him you see a hint of elegance and class that you would expect with someone who was born into money. MGG can play a character who appears weak and harmless, but who really has a sharp and biting attitude. | Catherine always spoke of it as her house. It isn’t hers! It’s mine: papa says everything she has is mine. All of her nice books are mine; she offered to give me them, and her pretty birds, and her pony Minny, if I would get the key of our room, and let her out; but I told her she had nothing to give, they were all, all mine. (Bronte, Ch. 28)
20: Lockwood | We chose this person to play Lockwood, because he appears as if he doesn't have any relation or similarities to any of the family in the book. He just seems like the type of person that would wander up and discover this great drama. He seems like a wandering stranger. | I'm now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself." (Bronte, Ch. 3)
21: Nelly | Meryl Streep to play Nelly because she looks like a Nelly. She seems like the person that would play someone who can be caring and nuturing, yet who can gossip and spread drama. | Proud people breed sad sorrows for themselves." (Bronte, Ch. 7)
