• zacharyroozen: “Hi! I’ve had such pleasure reading the books, studying the script and imagining Noah. Sometimes we are drawn to material and compelled to explore a very personal need in ourselves. Auditioning for After was certainly that to me. Thank you to the sweet @hessahoemj who had the guts to message me out of the blue because I gave her the impression of her favorite character in her favorite book. I wouldn’t have had a chance without ya! Still can’t believe, but want to thank the 11,000 of you that have followed suit, supported, encouraged and filled me with SO MUCH LOVE these last couple months. I appreciate each edit, personal story, and every single one of you. Always anxious for answers but always positive! Since I’m still receiving a couple hundred messages a week regarding if I’ve been cast I’d like to clear it up publicly. I was not cast and will not be playing Noah in the After series. I wish it were different because I would jump on a plane in a heartbeat. But I did go all the way and gave it my absolute best and I’m so proud of myself for that. If you all keep loving your neighbors with the same tenacity and support you’ve shown me, I am unbelievably optimistic about where we are headed as a community. Continue to embrace your unique origins. I am in awe of your beautiful individuality. I wish the film, crew, cast and fandom nothing but the absolute best. I hope that some of you stick around with me. Not the end, but just the beginning ... ;) Love always. -Z”
• It’s crazy to think about the fact that Zach was brought into the fandom as a suggestion for Hardin, because after posting photos of him the “Noah” comments started coming in. I am so glad Anna and my two friends helped me work up the courage to approach Zach at Anna’s signing, and extremely happy to have met him. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for him!
