A faceclaim in role playing is when you have a character whose appearance is taken from a person or another character. For example, Minerva McGonagall is described as a severe looking witch and in the Harry Potter movies, Dame Maggie Smith was cast. If Professor McGonagall's player didn't see the movie and pictures Anjelica Huston as Minerva McGonagall, he or she would have the option of choosing Anjelica Huston over Dame Smith.
As it is, most of the time canon movie characters have the same actor, but the idea is the same.
A faceclaim is the closest person to what you see in your mind as your character's appearance. This page lists all of BtV's faceclaims. Please note that in some cases, an actor might be used for two different characters and that the actor may not be a 100% reflection, but merely the closest facsimile to an author's image of his or her character. Right now there are no formal rules about this however, if you would like to use one already listed here, it is a courtesy to his or her player that you speak to them first.
