We’ve professed our love for Famous in Love and we can’t wait for you all to see it. Unfortunately it isn’t available yet, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be talking about it. So today we wanted to talk about first impressions of the cast.
And yes, we’re raving.
Character: Paige Townsen
Played By: Bella Thorne
Thoughts: We’ve said it before Bella steals every scene she’s in. Bella Thorne is a natural talent who makes your forget that she is playing a character, instead you feel like you are watching someones life movie. Bella plays Paige with a combination of strength and vulnerability. This role, we couldn’t imagine anyone else playing Paige. Bella is perfection.
Character: Rainer Devon
Played By: Carter Jenkins
Thoughts: He’s got that old school James Dean thing going on. It takes one smile and you’ll find yourself lost in Rainer Devon. Carter Jenkins has that old Hollywood vibe going on, with a mixture of let me run my fingers through his hair hipster vibe on the screen. He’s sexy, mysterious and you find yourself watching every move he makes. He’s perfection as Rainer and we can’t wait to see how he evolves as an actor in Famous in Love and on other projects.
Character: Jordan Wilder
Played By: Keith Powers
Thoughts: When you see Keith Powers walk onto the screen, your knees are probably going to get weak and you won’t be able to help but smile. The man has charisma and that can’t look away factor. The way that he portrays Jordan Wilder is just magnetic. You cheer for him, you scream for him, and you fall in love with him. Keith is going places and we love him.
Character: Nina Devon
Played By: Perrey Reeves
Thoughts: If you thought you had Mommy issues – well you haven’t met the master manipulator of a mother. Nina Devon is ruthless and a girl boss. She’s fearless – at least we think so. I wouldn’t fuck with her.
Character: Tangey Turner
Played By: Pepi Sonuga
Thoughts: Thought I can’t tell you much about Tangey, because I don’t want to ruin her character for you – I will tell you, Pepi is genius. She’s fantastic. She’s plays Tangey with a mix of vulnerability, strength, and don’t fuck with me attitude. She’s fun and I can’t wait to see how much she grows.
Character: Alexis Gleen
Played By: Niki Koss
Thoughts: Guys, lets talk Alexis. Like I love to hate her. She’s just vicious and manipulative and always looking to see how she can get ahead. But hey – that’s Hollywood. Niki plays Alexis with such strength and badassness that you can’t look away from. She’s one of our favorite things about this show.
Played By: Georgie Flores
Thoughts: Georgie Flores… I follow her on Instagram and I love her feed. She’s carefree and fun. She’s the same thing in Famous in Love. Cassandra comes across as innocent, but has way too much on her shoulders. There are some choices that she makes that makes me cringe and some that make me feel like go girl, empower yourself. She’s great.
Character: Jake Salt
Played By: Charlie DePew
Thoughts: Again, a character I can’t give a lot away about – but Charlie will have you reconsidering what team you are on. Team Rainer? Team Jordan? Charlie is fantastic and we can’t wait to see how he grows as an actor.
Famous in Love premieres on Freeform April 18th.
