#COTEEEES #SIDE NOT WHY IS EVERYONE BUT COTE WHITE? CUZ THIS IS SPOSED TO BE SET IN ISRAEL 2000 YRS AGO#THEY DEFO DID NOT HAVE RED HAIR…. #COTE DE PABLO #AND OTHERS

The lady in the middle is the producer. Rachel Brosnahan on the right looks exactly like her character is described in the book, which, yes, was red-haired and freckled. The rest of the cast, as far as it has been announced yet, looks pretty much non-white and extremely perfect and spot on for their corresponding roles.

Aziza’s actress is white, and we can assume then that Nahara will be as well. :/ Which is especially jarring to me, given that they’re described as very dark-skinned in the book. And the “standard” that their complexion is darker than isn’t even white either;  when we meet Wynn, he’s so pale that everyone thinks he looks inhuman. 

More importantly, is anyone in the cast Jewish? Given that the producers are the same people who made Son of God, I’m afraid that they’re going to Christianize the story, as a way to almost sell The Dovekeepers as a sequel. (ie, I suspect that the Essenes are going to be replaced with early Christians.) @protectorateandcircuit and I joke that Jerry Seinfeld would be more accurate for Ben Ya’ir than whoever they’re going to cast.

Also Amram is Latino so I’ll give them that! 

Does anyone know about the casting for other characters? I think we caught a glimpse of Yusuf in Yael’s picture with the camel. Does anyone know about Wynn, Ben Simon, Sia, Yoav, Nahara, Revka? It’s profoundly odd to me that they would start filming without Revka. 

I’m actually pretty okay with the casting for Ben Ya’ir (the guy beside Cote):

Granted, I forgot about Aziza’s casting, but I think it will depend on makeup what they make out of her. The guy cast as Adir also isn’t white - granted, he’s not dark-dark, but personally I’m more irked by the fact that he’s 20 and will play a  pre-pubescent boy.

We’ll see how he pulls that off.

Nahara may end up being darker, since she had a different father, although she probably won’t, given the casting of her brother. As far as I know, neither her nor Revka have been cast so far. (And yes, the lack of Revka confuses me, too.)

As a final note, I don’t get what an actor’s beliefs have to do with the character he or she portrays. Last time I looked, religion was completely different from ethnicity - even in the Jewish faith, where the lines often blur, you have so many colors it’s not funny anymore.

Seriously, fuck you, Sleepy Hollow. Because Abbie and Ichabod just had their very own “you never talk about it” moment and unlike Ziva, Abbie spilled her guts and let her partner in. And now I’m drowning in quite unexpected Tiva feels. :/

We never got payoff. Isn’t that pathetic? We never got JOY.

Lookin at Cote in the new Dovekeeper pics only made my mind go to Flavors of the Wind by Sammy, because I imagined her looking just like that! Tell me I’m wrong :P

I have many, many feels as well. It’s not quite how I would have seen Ziva’s attire in the story and the colors are off, but it’s close enough to make my head spin with happy feels. ♥

#WE HAVE COSTUMES#why is Yael in green are they trying to make her look even more Irish#actually I think the costumes could be worse they’re clearly at least attempting to look middle eastern#Yael’s dress reminds me of Palestinian folk attire#and Shirah’s jewelry looks…silly but not entirely unlike middle eastern attire I guess#why is Yael in green and Shirah in blue#blue is Yael’s color#ugh shirah that is a belly dancer halloween costume honey#and they try oh my god do they try#the dovekeepers

The green for Yael irks me, too, but not because of the green, more due to the fact that it seems too bold and “too noticeable” for a character who spent the biggest part of her life trying to go unnoticed. Remember, the blue was just the shawl she got from her brother - something special, out of the norm.

Shirah - well. It’s not quite like I imagined it and I’m shaking my head because her head-shawl and the dress clash quite dramatically in color… but I can deal with the rest, given her background and growing up in Egypt as, basically, a harem-girl-in-training… ;)
