Kicking off the casting, I personally feel that Jamie Campbell Bower (known for Harry Potter and Sweeney Todd) would make a great Simon Hathaway from the Assassin's Creed Heresy novel!

Although the model on the right was selected for the book cover photo, I feel that he has a distinctive look that Bower also has.

 

Hathaway was an incredible character, and it would be great to see more of his him in future projects.

Two names that always appear when fan casting Edward Kenway are Chris Hemsworth and Charlie Hunnam. They are both extremely talented actors who would no doubt do a great job in the role, but another consideration should definitely be Matt Ryan, the original voice actor who plays Constantine in the CW Arrowverse Universe.

Community member Ru from The Mentor's Guild nominates voice actress Melissanthi Mahut to reprise her role as Kassandra for the TV series.

The similarities certainly are striking!

Another obvious choice is Michael Fassbender, who could reprise his roles as Aguilar de Nerha and Callum Lynch from the Assassin's Creed Movie.

Michael also served as a producer on the film, making him a key candidate for a series return.

Community member Al believes that Ben Mendelsohn (Known for Star Wars: Rogue One and Ready Player One) would make a good Templar in the TV series.

Mendelsohn was particularly impressive in the 2020 TV series, 'The Outsider', and would be excellent in a role at Abstergo.

Twitter user Lord Tonio nominates Forest Whitaker to play an Old Mentor in the series, passing down decades worth of Assassin knowledge and experience to new recruits.

Recently, Whitaker was exceptional in Black Panther, and also shone in Star Wars: Rogue One, amongst many other great films, so he is definitely a great nomination.

Amy Wren is known for her portrayal of Mildrith in The Last Kingdom, and was nominated to join our Assassin's Creed TV Series Fan Casting by community member John Gray.
 

Although John didn't specify a specific character, I personally believe that she would make a great Elise de la Serre, who was tragically killed off in Assassin's Creed Unity. 

Although Elise had limited screen time in the game, she had a fantastic story of her own in the AC Unity Novel, and even met with Edward Kenway's daughter!

2021 is the year of Shao Jun, in terms of transmedia, and she will be the focus on many upcoming projects, which you can see here.

Our Facebook Fan Rick nominates Arden Cho to bring Shao Jun to life in the upcoming live-action TV series.
