season 2 casting


Quote:
Game of Thrones
Two Doctor Who alums are rumored to be in line for second season roles: Tony Curran, who played Vincent Van Gogh in the last series, and the Ninth Doctor himself, Christopher Eccleston. No word on who either will play - for what it's worth, the current speculation is that Eccleston would play either Stannis Baratheon or Balon Greyjoy. In any event, if Eccleston doesn't play a character who gets killed in heartbreaking fashion after a season or so, then it'll throw into question everything I think I know about Christopher Eccleston.

Maybe Davos The Onion Knight. Quorhin Halfhand. Even Mance Raider.


I will be really impressed if (in white):

We can go back to the feast at Winterfell with Robert Baratheon, and whoever plays Mance Rayder going forward is actually in the crowd playing his lyre somewhere, as he tells Jon Snow that he did. That would impress the hell out of me, but I can't imagine they looked that far ahead.

On Demand ... I'm gonna try it tonight. At least see if there's a player floating around in there somewhere. Could be in the King's envoy as well when he pulls up.

I didn't think he would be a big enough Stannis either but about havent read about baylon yet to know. He could do well as the king north of the wall, he has that certain quality to him. Unless his physical characteristics don't match.. Anyhow I am sure it will work out.

Deleting the white text on my iPad is a pain in the ass so sorry for nt deleting it.

For me Stannis has to be a huge almost barbarian looking guy. As far as a red haired character goes, what about that J'aq something guy who had red and white hair and was chained up with the guy with no nose.

Jaquan is a perfect fit for that guy. That's a good guess.

Part of my problem is that I can't keep entirely clear anymore what comes from which book. I have a feeling that a second season could straddle book two and book three.

that's going to be a problem for the show. alot of the things that happen during the next few books occur at the same time. dunno how HBO is gonna handle that.

Questions in spoiler:

I read an Arya chapter last night that detailed an encounter in the dungeons where she over-hears two men discussing killing Eddard, which then she goes to him and he dismisses it. I can't remember that part in the show at all. Was that left out?

I should've done what Anti-Hero did which was watch the episodes after I read the parts in the book but It's kind of too late now. I am definitely going to rewatch the season after I finish the first book to properly compare.

As for the mystery of who Jon Snow's parents are I think I found somthing that suggests Ned actually is his father rather then Rheagar as everyone has been saying. ill put it in white just in case.

When Qhorin Halfhand meets up with the watch he guesses who Jon Snow is because he looks like his father. this is the first time they ever met but Qhorin says he knew Ned. Unless Ned looked like his sister , I'm beginning to doubt the Rhegar theory.

Nothing to see here, move along

In the book they talk a lot about colorings. Most of the Stark kids have Cat's colorings but Jon and Arya have the colors of the starks. Dark hair, bone structure etc... So Jon basically has the colors of the starks and that could have easily come from his sister.

Pete, I am right behind you. I am just about to begin Arya's chapter next. I failed at my two chapters by the end of the night. Also that scene does happen in the show, while she is chasing cats. It also shows her asking Jory if he would let anything bad happen to her father.

Just finished that chapter, I guess it's Desmond she asks not Jory.

lalala


contrary to that the book says that jon looks like arya who looks like lyanna. either way, i think we will have an answer soon. GRRM mentioned that he may take steps to address that issue in the forthcoming book.


spoiler **i'm betting Howland is the one who reveals the truth since he's the only who was there that's still alive**

Yep, and then she goes and tells her father about it, but she's frantic, and she sort of shrugs her off, and then Yoren comes in. It's also when she gets stuck outside the city and the guards won't let her in because they think she's a homeless boy.


The books refer repeatedly to how Jon and Arrya look like Eddard. The long face they always refer too, in addition to the coloring. But Sansa and her friend Jayne Pool would refer to Arrya as Horseface because she had the same long face as Eddard, and Cate talks about seeing it in Jon as well.
Between that, and the burn playing so continuously well into book three, not that much happens, but they're constantly talking about him flexing the burnt hand and what have you, it's gonna take a little doing for Jon to be Rheagar's. I even think it's possible that he's a Barretheon, Robert's and Lyanna's. But the Barratheon genes are supposed to be so strong that it should be obvious.
