Cover models

Does anyone know the names of the people who posed as the Animorphs on the book covers?

I don’t think that information was ever made public. :|

I wish I knew the answer to that one, too, but like "Snoopy" said, I don't think they ever made that information available to the fans.

On another note, I think that I prefer the cover models to the actors in the television series. Maybe it's just because I'm used to their faces, rather than the TV actor's faces, but isn't there just something about the models on the covers that connects with the characters in the book so much better than the actors on the screen?

Meh. I don't think so. I've never pictured the people on the cover as being much like the characters. I'd say either Jake or Cassie come the closest to my image, though I picture Cassie a little cuter. And (meaning absolutely no offense) I don't think the Rachel model is that pretty or hot, or whatever. This wouldn't matter, but Rachel is supposed to be hot, you know? Of course, the cover is not nearly as important as the content, so whatever.
Oh, and I do agree that there was something odd about the TV actors. However, I remember Ax's 'human morph' actor being appropriately strange. Not good-looking like the books say, but there was something odd about him.

Let’s see…

I liked the model for Jake, and the model, (later on in the series, around #40) for Tobias. I didn’t like the models for Marco, Cassie or Rachel. I have my own mental image of what they’re supposed to look like, and the cover pictures are just wrong.

I think it is more a more paticular image on the covers than the images of the TV show's characters. Mostly because there is more of the cover models than the TV characters. Anyone agree?

And to point out to everyone, there was no "cover models". David just made a sketch of the characters.
The humans on the cover are who I think of them.
