HOTD Casting Call: Rocquele

Alright, let's cast a villain.  Rocquele the witch appears in the first two Hunters of the Dark books, and here's who I would have play her...

Runners Up to play Rocquele

Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, The King's Speech)

Tara Summers (Ringer, Hitchcock)

My Choice for Rocquele

Olivia Williams (Dollhouse, The Ghost Writer)
Rocquele is a wicked witch in the Hunters of the Dark series, and someone who could play crazy, but also haughty and arrogant, would be necessary for the part.  These three actresses could certainly slip into the role with ease, but I would hate to typecast Helena, and any other witch she played aside from Bellatrix would probably pale in comparison.  Of the remaining two, I just have to go with Olivia Williams, who can be cool as a cucumber and can play the snobby beauty like she was born to do it.
