Sad to hear. He has to be replaced I guess but its gonna be a step down. You dont find many people who look at head...choppy. Dude looked like he couldnt WAIT to end a couple lives.

They got it right the first time. Like the Mountain. Guy they replaced him with is just big. First guy looked....disturbing. New guy doesnt look ready to take the head off a horse.

Mountain in the first season looked intimidating as hell. Other guy is just tall...

Payne was perfectly cast, looked like real cold blooded executioner. Sad that he's ill, I wish him best of luck.

He was apparently quite the famous guitar player in his day as well, Wilco Johnson is the actors name. I'd never heard of him. Anyway he's playing out the string doing concerts, and won't be filming any more. It's apparently quite serious, and he probably won't live the year.

That is sad news. Yeah he'll probably just be replaced like the mountain who they got perfectly the first time.

I just finished season one and was reading through this thread after each episode I finished, some pretty good insight and clarifications by people who have read the books. I'm going to have to go get those now.

For some reason I always pictured Mance as much younger.

I agree, I envisioned a younger Mance. Also, the Blackfish doesn't look quite how I thought he did either.

Mance looks like Caesar from Rome. Checking IMDB...

I was correct!

I agree completely about Mance. Figured he'd be around the same age as Bronn (the sellsword).

Honestly though I think Cirian Hinds will put in a performance to justify his selection to the role.
