Casting calls for Shireen
Posted 03 May 2012 - 02:08 PM
I'm kind of surprised by this, as I was certain that she was cut since she wasn't cast in this season where a lot of her scenes take place, and she isn't that critical to the plot so far in the series. That she is being cast I think can only mean one thing. GRRM has let D&D know that she is critically important to the future plot and that they shouldn't cut her.

When I read that I hoped for Meera. Too bad.

Does this mean we get Patchface? I hope and I hope.

it is just a rumor. take it as is.

I'd love to have her in the show and maybe the 11 year old will be her, but I'll take this as nothing more than a rumour at this stage.

"Nothing" kind of implies no children, so you can see where I was mistaken there.

Man Davos learning to read is kind of interesting in the book, but not exactly a jammed packed day of celestial thrills for the TV audience.

Good idea, yes, might be that, who knows!

More importantly, Shireen Baratheon will be declared Queen Shireen, the First of Her Name in TWoW. Omitting Stannis's direct heir, would not make it possible for them to go down that whole Stannis plays dead road since Stannis's men would immediately forsake his cause when they learn about his (alleged) death. Selyse has no claim to anything. Without Shireen, she and Melisandre would have nothing.
But I guess it's possible that they will merge Edric Storm and Shireen in the series. It would be much more dramatic if Stannis would consider to sacrifice his own beloved daughter to wake dragons from stone. They could show us Salla and Davos smuggling Shireen out of Dragonstone just as Edric was smuggled, only to reunite them with Stannis later on, after they've decided to drop this whole stupid move and go to the Wall.

She specifically said: "No sons; only stillborns, only death." I took that to mean she was only talking about boys from the first time I heard it, honestly.

It's going to happen. 2x02 already established Davos' illiteracy.

It can be interpreted both ways. And from reading forums it seems like 95% of viewers interpreted it as no girls either. If they intended to have Shireen, they could have phrased that a LOT better.
I still think this was a bogus tip.
