    Yay I love her she’s so pretty an popular.

  2. Mandy says:

    Awesome! Loved LUX and the secret circle were my favorite books when I was a teenager! I can’t wait to see who she plays!

  3. Fiona says:

    Who will she play?

  4. Jess says:

    I sincerely hope she isn’t going to play Cassie.

  5. Mandy says:

    I just read on another site that she is going to play Cassie.. Kinda disapointed. But if you look at how Elena was described in the book it was also completely the oppiste of how she was cast.

    • Courtney says:

      Yes but, at least for me, Elena was not a very likable character to start. The TV show actually improved the character a lot. I could see Robertson as a Kaitlyn from The Dark Visions trilogy, but I just don’t buy her as shy and sweet Cassie.

  6. Vicki says:

    Maybe if Fox hadn’t moved Fringe to Fridays, a show with solid ratings wouldn’t be in trouble now.

  7. AT says:

    Britt is a great choice to play Cassie. She even looks a bit like the character description in the book. Also, she’s a good actress. I can’t wait to see who they cast as Diana, Adam, Nick, Faye and especially Black John.

    Lux had to be one of the most annoying characters ever created on television. I could not stand her!
