I think Dave's changed his mind about Elfiki, because back in 2008
he suggested Sarah Shahi for the role. Ever since seeing her in Fairly Legal
, she's been my choice for Elfiki.
Kristin Kreuk as T'Ryssa? I dunno. She might be able to pull it off, but she's a little too gorgeous. Elfiki's supposed to be the really stunning one, with Trys being more just reasonably attractive or cute. But Kreuk is right up there with Shahi among the most stunningly gorgeous women on the face of the Earth. Besides, Kreuk is already my casting choice for Counselor T'Lana from the previous few TNG books.
