Casting Call: ‘The Favorite Sister’


The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll is a New York Times bestselling mystery about sisters, reality television, and murder. Big Littles Lies producer Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories obtained the rights to turn this story into a television series. Below I give you my humble opinion on who they could cast in the most important roles of the story.

Evan Rachel Wood as Brett, the down-to-Earth lesbian business owner 

Deborah Ann Woll as Kelly, Brett’s “perfect” sister and single mother

Candice Patton as Stephanie, successful writer and Brett’s ex-best friend

Kayla Ewell as Jen, vegan fitness guru and life coach

Brittany Snow as Lauren, the fun blonde who drinks too much

Sara Angelina Rivera as Layla, Kelly’s twelve-year-old daughter
