As we reported last week, Fox Networks officially ordered the pilot episode for the adaptation of Delirium by Lauren Oliver. Today it was reported that actress Emma Roberts (Nancy Drew, Scream 4) was cast in the lead role of Lena Haloway. Emma is no stranger to TV having stared previously in Nickleodeon’s Unfabulous. Upcoming roles include Empire State with Liam Hemsworth and We’re the Millers with Jennifer Aniston.
So what do you guys think of Emma as Lena? Appearance wise Emma does not fit the character at all, who is described as 5’2, plain with long brown hair, brownish green eyes, and fairly physically fit as she is a runner. I’m hoping that Emma can pull off the part convincingly. It all remains to be seen, even if a pilot is filmed it does not guarantee pick-up by the network.
If you haven’t read Delirium, I highly recommend it!
