Guess That Character Blogfest: The Reveal

| Friday, August 20, 2010
Today's Tune: Jai Ho

Thank you so much to everyone who read yesterday's Guess That Character blog post and guessed about Shan's appearance. It gave me a happy that so many people guessed pretty closely along the lines of the picture in my head.

So, without further ado, this is how I pictured Shan. (Short for Ikshan. I pronounce it like "Shaun," if you were wondering):




(The actor is Shayan Munshi)

As you can see, several of you guessed pretty closely! Most people got that he was of Indian decent. A few got the casual-but-well-groomed look, with short hair that's slightly longer on top. He's average height, maybe 5'9", strong but slender. He's about 17, and a second-generation American.

It's hard for me to say who had the closest guess. Which I assume is a good thing, because it means I conveyed him well, right? Ha! :D

Again, thank you guys for playing! This was a lot of fun. I tried to get through as many entries as I could yesterday, but I didn't quite make it. I'll make sure and catch the rest of you today!

Nice choice. And not bad to think about on a semi-regular basis :)

If you get a chance, stop by my blog to pick up another award from me :)

Yay! Finally one I was right about! I even got the scruff! Seriously. All of my other guesses were epic fail.

Wow. I guessed Dev Patel because he was young and Indian, but this guy actually does fit the image in my head a little better--a little prettier than Dev.

By the way,you were one of the two closest for my entry!

wowee! i'm so bad at this! i imagine all the characters more goofy than the authors have them... maybe that's because i'm a goof...

LOL, I enjoy all of this. Your photo for him is great! I think I was wrong though...lol

ooh - very nice. Sorry I didn't get around to guessing yesterday. He seems like a very interesting character and so good looking.

What a great game. Wish I'd checked in earlier to play.

I love it! Really great entry--and so interesting. Well done.

{ Damyanti } at: August 20, 2010 at 8:41 AM said...

LOL!

I have met the guy in real life whose pic you posted here. I studied with his older sister!

He was a very tall and hunky boy at 17....

I loved your snippet and think the choice of pic is interesting :)

Great choice for this character. And I'm glad you told us how you pronounce his name, it wasn't the way I thought. Have a great weekend!

Handsome young man!

{ Amie McCracken } at: August 20, 2010 at 9:48 AM said...

He's yummy. (hee hee) Suppose I shouldn't say that since he's under 18...

{ Terry Stonecrop } at: August 20, 2010 at 9:52 AM said...

You must have conveyed him well. Even I got him right:)

I like this story. And another hot guy pic to enjoy!

{ Steph Sinkhorn } at: August 20, 2010 at 10:14 AM said...

j.leigh - I was?? Awesome! :D

Heather - It was really fun... next time, though, right?

Damyanti - OMG, really? Ha! What a small world :)

Amie - I don't think the *actor* is under 18 anymore, if that makes any difference... :D

Thank you, all!

Nice. He's cute and I got pretty darn close to guessing him. :D

{ Jen } at: August 20, 2010 at 11:13 AM said...

Ha ha I'm laughing at how terrible I am at guessing. I will say that he is one hell of a hunk that Steph!!! I'm a huge fan.

I can't remember if I even made it to your blog yesterday to guess, but I was probably wrong if I did! Still, this was fun, so thanks for sharing Stephanie!

Ah!! He's exactly how I pictured only I thought with shorter hair - lovely smile though! ;))

LOL, well, I'm glad that he doesn't look like Dev. :P This guy is one to drool over, that's for sure! This was way fun! Thanks for your comments, Steph! :)
