I actually like that she's a little more mature and subtle. It gives her a better air of mystery. And she has very expressive eyes. I've never seen Carice before this, but I'm sold.
I admit I had a slight sinking feeling in her very first scene. But every scene thereafter I really enjoyed. I know I have expressed dismay over Asha being portrayed more understated. But in this instance, it works. Perhaps Yara will win me over eventually.

Everyone knows George Martin based Asshai on the Netherlands . Me being Dutch, I was a bit concerned about her English accent also because it never sounded really natural. However, it doesn't disturb me in the TV-show, it fits the character being mysterious and foreign and all. Love the casting.

I did not know that. Looking at the world map and trying to place kingdoms and realms in the real world, I would have thought at least Russia (if we are going to keep with the "white" theme).

I did not catch that, I was too distracted by everything else. I'll have to re-watch that.
Haha, Party City ... the whole look they gave her looks like it was a rented Halloween costume. If you're from the SoCal region and commute to L.A., you know the store I'm talking about as drive up/down the 5.
