Zay from The Burning of Cherry Hill - Rupert Grint
Okay, so Rupert Grint is quite a bit older than the character in A.K. Butler's wonderful self-published dystopia The Burning of Cherry Hill, but that's okay. Ages can be tinkered with when moving things from book to screen, and Rupert is just too awesome to leave off of a list like this. Zay is a great character who risks everything to try to save his parents from an oppressive government, and Rupert Grint would be wonderful while separating himself from the role of the sidekick he played in the Harry Potter films. We want more Rupert!
