Artemis Fowl Movie Dream Cast

Characters list created by Tara Sky Avatar

Add image to section

Artemis Fowl II

The titular character went from a cold-hearted, selfish anti-hero to a hero who would do anything for the greater good. He's a proper Irish gentleman, genius, and billionaire. Oh he's also twelve-years-old at the beginning of the series. For the role, the actor needs to be a great child actor that can understand playing a cold, calculating character without being hollow and give Artemis the depth he needs.

Unknown Actor

One good thing that they did with casting was hiring an unknown child actor for the role. They audition over a thousand young boys and finally picked one. That shows whoever they got is the real deal, so I'm excited for this newcomer. Having a unknown actor play an established character it helps the audience see them as the character instead of *Insert famous actor*. Also it's amazing to see an actor a rise up before our eyes like Jennifer Lawrence or the Stranger Things child actors. Speaking of...

Noah Schnapp

Out of the all the Stranger Things child actors, I think is Noah is the best besides Millie Bobby Brown. This kid can emote better than most adult actors. I think he pull off being cold and calculating, but also vulnerable enough to root for him.

David Mazouz

My god, I wish we had a time machine to go back in time when he was 12 to cast him in the role. He got the looks and the acting chops to pull it off.Wasted opportunity.

Timothée Chalamet

Another wasted opportunity. He matches the Artemis's description of pale skin, lanky, and dark hair. He doesn't have the distinctive blue eyes but Timothée's eye are very distinctive in their own right. I wish they discovered him at twelve because he is great young actor whose not afraid at all to take chances and risks. Also he would look AMAZING in a suit and sunglasses.

Captain Holly short

The enemy/hostage turned friend. She's the first female LEP (Lower Elements Police) officer, and she's a total badass. She swoops in and saves her friends, fiery, compassionate, and street-smart. ( Small Tangent: She is not white, and she's not a ten-year-girl. She is a grown ass woman with nut brown colored skin)

Lupita Nyong'o

She can play a badass like Nakia from Blank Panther. And crush your heart and soul as a tragic slave girl, Patsey, from 12 Years A Slave. Also Lupita and Holly's experiences is very similar. Both are women in a male dominated field, and fights for their place without cheapening themselves. (Also Lupita rejected Harvey Weinstein advances. Total Badass) She could play Holly with a lot of grace, insight, and compassion.

Tati Gabrielle

I have not seen Chilling Adventures of Sabrina or anything else she been in. But I legit was scrolling around Tumblr instead of doing actual work and I randomly came across her in a gif. It dawned on me like lightning, "Holy sh*t, this is Holly." She rocks the short hair, beautiful, fit, and serves all types of queen-like attitude. Yes, ma'am.

Ruth Negga

A popular fan choice, and I definitely agree. She's a fantastic actress and the closest to how Holly would look.

Zazie Beetz

I have not seen Deadpool 2 yet (but she looks badass from the trailers) , but I have seen Atlanta. She is great at being a hard-ass, but also can dish out acid wit.

Zoe Saldana

She's used to playing badass female characters from (Colombian to Guardian of the Galaxy) and she has enough star-power to drawn in crowds.

Saoirse Ronan

Since Hollywood wants to make the horrible mistake of white washing Holly, at least do it right or better. Saoirse Ronan is a fan selection floating around the internet. I'm not crazy about it, but it would be TONS better than what we got. Saoirse is extremely talented and age appropriate for the role and deserves another chance at a big budget franchise since the Host sucked.

Artemis Fowl is my all time favorite book series, and very close to my heart. I read this series a thousand times and I'm 21. Anyone can read this series and be thoroughly entertained. It's funny, adventurous, inventive, and has the best characters of all times. When I heard they were adapting, I had hope because the books read like an awesome movie, advancements in CGI and affects, and there has been a massive push for diversity in films...then they release the cast of the movie and it was underwhelming.

In light of the extreme disappointment of the release of some the cast that signed on for the Artemis Fowl Movie coming out in 2019, I created a dream cast that should have been a reality, but because of CORPORATE GREED we wait for the huge disappointment that is this movie will be. *sigh* Can't wait to cry for a week.
