If there will be a Live Action of Edith Hamilton's Greek Mythology, who would you like to play the parts of the Gods and Goddesses.?

The Troy movie is like a part of this book too.

These are the 12 Olympian Gods and Goddesses:

♥Aphrodite - Goddess of love, romance, and beauty. Her son was Eros, god of Love (though he is not an Olympian.)

♥Apollo - Beautiful god of the sun, light, medicine, and music.

♥Ares - Dark god of war who loves Aphrodite.

♥Artemis - Independent goddess of the hunt, the forest, wildlife, childbirth, and the moon. Sister to Apollo.

♥Athena - Daughter of Zeus and goddess of wisdom, war, and crafts. Sometimes spelled "Athene".

♥Demeter - Goddess of agriculture and mother of Persephone (again, her offspring is not considered to be an Olympian.)

♥Hephaestus - Lame god of fire and the forge. Sometimes spelled Hephaistos. The Hephaestion near the Acropolis is the most beautifully preserved ancient temple in Greece. Mated to Aphrodite.

♥Hera - Wife of Zeus, protector of marriage, familiar with magic.

♥Hermes - The speedy messenger of the gods, god of business. The Romans called him Mercury.

♥Hestia - Calm goddess of home and homelife, symbolized by the hearth which holds the continually-burning flame.

♥Poseidon - God of the sea, horses, and of earthquakes.

♥Zeus - Supreme lord of gods, god of the sky, symbolized by the thunderbolt.

I love Hermes, as weird as it sounds I had a crush on the personality when I was 10. lol.. I think Hermes should be played by a group of little kids, it'd be funny and they could where the little winged shoes. Perhaps the boys of Hey Say Jump.

nevermind...it'd be hard for asians to do it especially that it's a pure western culture. Also, it'd be not asian like if they choose to use the greek names. Probably, asians would rather choose to put up a live action of their own mythology..i'm sure asians have their own counterpart of the greek mythology

probably you're right. 'cause in the philippines there are plenty of mythological characters, but wouldn't it be nice if we can see asians portraying western cultures for a change.? we always see western actors/actresses making a culutural drama or show about the asian cultures.

i have no disagreement with you, all im saying is that i think asians need to expand their horizons in doing dramas/movies. ^^,

out of the blue..

i know Adonis is not a god or anything.. but according to greek mythology he is one of the most handsome young men..


"Adonis was a handsome young man, of beauty comparable to that of Endymion, Ganymedes, Narcissus, Hyacinthus 1, Atlantius (also called Hermaphroditus), Hylas or Chrysippus"

and i think that Adonis should be play by:

I'd be really really interested if something like this was to happen.
I'm really interested to see how asians see our mythology.

One of SHE's mvs talk about Apollo:
'




But honestly, Asian people will never look Greek. Lol....

And as for a drama about Greek Mythology, isn't that pretty impossible since some it doesn't even make sense and there are so many. Maybe one or two stories, but not the whole thing!


One of BoBO should totally be Hermes, though. They were the first ones I thought of.





JunJun should be Mars.




Crystal Liu, Artemis:
