Life in Parts Characters
Life in Parts
8.41. Candice Swanepoel
My main character, Elli, the female love interest throughout the series. Above is what she looks like in Life in Parts above and below is Scrambled Gregs. She even starts out as a brunette and becomes a blonde later in the story line. All pics shown are outfits I used for the character.
6.72. Ryan Rottman
8.13. Miranda Kerr
Elli's best friend throughout both books, Jenna. At one point the girls think they might be half sisters. It's also fun to have pics of Candice and Miranda together!
Jenna will also be getting her own spinoff adult series and is one of the perspectives (narrator) of the young adult series told from the points of view of different characters.
64. Robert Adamson
As of now Robert is the basis for Jonah, Jenna's older brother, the biggest d-bag in the world. He's a jerk to his sister and Elli especially. He's trying to prevent Elli and Jagger from getting together and keeps trying to get them to break up using any means necessary. Jonah develops a substance abuse problem early in the series.
6.95. Hunter Parrish
After much deliberation and back and forth I finally settled on Hunter for Eric Morely. Eric is Elli's former crush and Jagger's ex-best friend. The two had a falling out over Eric's treatment of Elli and the fact that he still likes her when she and Jagger are dating.
Eric's a shy guy focused mostly on just being there without being seen. He's very much a listener and observes everything around him in a way that makes him interesting to read.
7.46. Julianne Hough
7.67. Brody Jenner
7.98. Izabel Goulart
Izabel plays Courtney, the stuck up daddy's girl at school. You pretty quickly learn that nothing is what it seems with this girl but she's not your typical bitch character, she's not what she appears.
Though Iza is usually in lingerie Courtney is actually pretty conservative in my writing so far. It's a challenge to find the sexy Ms. Goulart wearing any actual clothes.
6.39. Greg Finley
7.510. Mary-Louise Parker
There are two profiles for Mary-Louise Parker who plays Elli's mother, Karynn Matthews. Karynn is a mess who can't get her act together enough to take care of her daughter, similar but not exactly the same as Mary-Louise's character on Weeds, just a much stronger link. I also chose her for her hair color and skinny frame(like a younger Candice Swanepoel). There's not much of a resemblance but it suits my purpose.
7.611. Mary Louise Parker
7.612. Jeffrey Dean Morgan
6.913. Angie Harmon
Angie Harmon plays Jenna's mother, Suzanna Reynolds. She is a mother of 5, many of her children look just like her with her dark hair and eyes but she's upset that Jenna more resembles her father. It's an issue from the beginning, she wishes her oldest daughter was more like her, thin, cheerleader, spoiled brat but Jenna is more sweet, sarcastic, down to Earth and friendly, not to mention not rail thin.
Love Angie on Rizzoli and Isles-one of my favorite shows although Suzanna is nothing like Jane Rizzoli, they couldn't be more different.
6.814. John Stamos
7.115. Kendall Jenner
Jenna's younger sister Jacey. Looks a lot like their mother played by Angie Harmon. Eventually the two younger sisters will have their own young adult series but sometimes I'm too ambitious for my own good.
It's a total coincidence that their older bro Brody is Zach, they are no relation in Life in Parts.
6.616. Kylie Jenner
7.617. Jessica Perez
Jessica Perez plays Jagger's half sister Kendall (came up with the name before I picked the Jenner sisters to play Jenna's sisters lol). She's a few years younger than Jagger and Elli and as of now plays little part in the books. She'll have a bigger role as the books progress and saves the couple's relationship a few times.
5.318. Shad Gaspard
plays Jagger's friend Tavares because of his size and ethnicity. In Life in Parts he's secretly in love with Elli throughout his friendship with Jagger. You'll see his point of view in the books. Tavares is also in Scrambled Gregs as a potential love interest for Elli. I've also written a book about what would have happened if Elli and Tavares had actually gotten together.
This picture isn't actually accurate to the characters persona but it's one of two that are posted.
6.419. Layla Kayleigh
8.120. Monica Hansen
6.421. Max Greenfield
the inspiration for the title character of Greg. His persona on Veronica Mars (always sweet and quick with a smile) is exactly how I picture Greg but their looks are a little different. Greg is based on an actual person in real life but Max was the closest person I could find for the list.
Greg is Elli's love interest in Scrambled Greg's. A misunderstanding puts their relationship in jeopardy and Elli has to do everything she can to get Greg back before it's too late.
8.322. Erin Heatherton
Erin plays Elli's friend Chelsea in Scrambled Gregs. She's a new friend who hasn't appeared in any books before this one. She's a sweetheart and helps Elli through many emotional things when she needs a friend. The character of Chelsea is really cute and loveable.
I love being able to use photos of Erin and Candice or Erin and Miranda for my characters and am always on the hunt for more of them together.
7.523. Chris Evans
Chris plays Greg's friend, Chris but it was a total accident with their names. He's the funny jokster who always says inappropriate sexual things. He's athletic and although quick with a joke he's always the first to help out when the situation get's serious.
The photos of him and Candice Swanepoel really clenched his role in the book.
6.324. Daniel Sunjata
7.325. Andi Muise
Andi plays Sarah, Jagger's ex-girlfriend during the time Elli and Jagger had broken up. In Scrambled Gregs Sarah has a secret that she doesn't want out and it causes her to do some pretty stupid things to keep anyone from finding out what she has been hiding.
In the Tavares version of the story Sarah and Elli are the best of friends and everyone knows what she was hiding all those years ago but Elli only learns about what she did to protect her secret way down the road.
Again, love photos of Elli and Sarah (Candice and Andi) together and there seem to be quite a few.
