Hilda – the movie. (I know… dream on, writer)

Dear reader,
Hilda the wicked witchIt’s not my intention to give you hopes that may never come true. I just want to share a dream with you. Perhaps a dream we can only dream, but at least I’ll be in good dreaming company.

It is the dream of almost every writer I know to hear that his or her work will be transformed into a film. It probably won’t come as a surprise that I would love to see Hilda on the big screen. And the smaller ones after that. So much has happened after the first short story about the wicked witch that I think she has earned the right to appear in a film. And that brought me to asking around a bit. The question I had was:

“Who would be a good actress to play Hilda?”

I had several responses, and I would like to share those with you. A very good one was:

bette midler
Bette Midler in Hocus Pocus

Bette Midler.

She did a great witch in “Hocus Pocus”.

I can see her do wonderful Hilda provided the teeth are altered a little bit. 😉

evanna-lynch
Evanna Lynch in Harry Potter

Evanna Lynch.

Known to most people from the Harry Potter films. She has the right amount of oddness (she proved that) and quirkiness to be Hilda.

Yes. A Hilda the Wicked Witch film. Really. I’ll dream on a little longer and then go back to writing book 18 in the series…
