Beautiful Creatures: Get The Look
Beautiful Creatures is set in the sleepy Southern town of Gatlin, South Carolina where nothing ever happens. But, beneath the surface, there are strange and magical forces, rooted in the past, that are about to re-emerge in ways the townspeople can’t even begin to imagine. That dance between the Caster and Mortal world is not only one of Light and Dark but of the past and present, all of which weaves an intricate adventure that impacts the future.

Lena Duchannes - Alice Englert
Lena Duchannes, the beautiful and enigmatic niece of Macon Ravenwood. Lena is a Caster who possesses supernatural powers. She longs to break free from a family curse as she turns 16 and faces The Claiming…and being chosen by the forces of either the Light or the Dark. Lena wants to be a normal teen and live a normal life, despite being anything but.
Although the ultimate connection is a mystery, one thing is clear: the moment Ethan and Lena meet, their bond is immediate, and so strong it unleashes another kind of storm altogether—a disturbance between powerful Light and Dark forces that have held a fragile, dormant truce in this Southern town for generations.
Ethan Wate – Alden Ehrenreich
Ethan Wate, a high school senior, has had the same recurring dream for months. A mysterious young girl is waiting for him on a Civil War battlefield. Ethan desperately wants to be with her, but there is an unknown danger—and each time a lightning bolt cracks like a gunshot, killing Ethan before he ever reaches the girl.
Ethan wants to break free from his small town and escape Gatlin’s stagnant existence. But Ethan’s mundane world is shaken up with the arrival of Lena Duchannes. Although he is on the Varsity team and one of the popular kids, and Link is more of an outcast, they share the bond of having lost a parent.
Ridley Duchannes – Emmy Rossum
The Dark Caster Ridley Duchannes is a Siren who can get others to do her bidding. The nature of Ridley’s character—embodying different stylized looks and intention often without dialogue—could easily be daunting. All Ridley wants to do is stir up trouble.
Mrs. Lincoln/Sarafine – Emma Thompson
Emma Thompson plays the conservative town crier who is also the mother of Ethan’s best friend, Link. At the other end of the spectrum, Thompson, performing double duty, plays the role of Sarafine, a Dark Caster who is trying her best to stir up the nefarious forces in Gatlin. To say that Mrs. Lincoln is a Bible thumper would be an understatement.
Amma – Viola Davis
Amma had been Ethan’s mother’s best friend and had promised to watch out for Ethan when his mother passed away. While not a Caster, Amma is a Seer and has her own fears about a union between these two young people. Amma is the town librarian, and has her own mysterious connection to the spirit world,
Macon Ravenwood – Jeremy Irons
Macon Ravenwood is the reclusive owner of gothic Ravenwood Manor. He has a style, a wit and a bit of mystery. Though Macon had been Claimed by the Dark in his youth, he has been trying to suppress his true nature for the sake of Lena, his niece.
Link is Ethan’s wingman on the journey with this remarkable girl. They’ve been best friends since they were little kids and have gone through a lot, they share the same mentality. And he will draw on whatever powers, Light or Dark, to protect her.
