If you have never visited London, or are unfamiliar with some of the locations mentioned in Chasing Pavements, watch the YouTube video, Chasing Pavements in Pictures, to get a quick glipmse of the setting.  Sorry there's no music, but if you play it the same time as this Adele video on YouTube, you'll find they match up quite nicely.

And if you would like to know how I see the characters in my head, check out the list below.  How do they compare to the images you have of these characters?


Taylor Swift as Maggie York - isn't she just adorable?

I'm a huge fan of Colin Firth and some of the mannerisms that we have come to associate with all the characters he has played on-screen, remind me so much of Peter York.  Just imagine him with blonde hair...


The lovely Judith Light, her role in Ugly Betty actually helped inspire Tanya Davenport's character.



But my absolute fave, the gorgeous Aaron Johnson as the teenage and adult Daniel (Danny) White - Danny was actually based specifically around Aaron's looks (when he was a teen) because Mukti is a sucker for such pretty faces!

And hasn't he grown into the kind of adult that Danny grew into...
