I dont really see why they would change Cleos' name? Its no big deal though, he's such a minor character.

Here's a list of all those who have been casted for season 2 so far. The girl they picked to play Margarey is exactly how I imagined her when I read about her.

I would think they'd keep the name if only because it just hints at the marital connections between the families, particularly the Frey's who are so adament about marrying off their whelps. And it establishes a connection between the Lannisters and Frey's.

I agree. Natalie Dormer has looked a million different was. If you go through her pics, she could almost pass for three or four different people. But she's got the wide smile that makes her neck look small, and I always come away from the books picturing Margery with a skinny nape of a neck, probably because the Kettleblacks and Cersei are always talking about ringing it.

She could look enough like Loras to pull it off too.

Just finished book four. Wasn't as bad as I was making it out to be. I still don't care about the Dorne story-line at all. I had to go and re-read the prologue to remind myself of the Pate story because I'm pretty sure he was killed. A pretty good cliffhanger IMO.

Just finished reading the Tyrion chapter in book 5 where he finds out who Griff and Young Griff actually are.

I'm just starting the Davos chapter in book five. Just after Tyrion hooks up with the two Griffs.

I've heard that book five suffers from some of the same pacing issues that book four did, but so far I'm enjoying it much more. Probably only because Tyrion and Jon are so prominently involved. I can already see the countless pages of travel being something that will frustrate me.

I just finished the Jon chapter where he sends Sam and Gilly and Aemon off south, and it's weird feeling like I already read it before. Not like from a different perspective, but like word for word. I think it may have been a preview chapter in one of the other books.

I look forward to finishing.
