Stevenson is almost too good looking to play Victarion. But I just want him on the show, dont care what role.

Shame he is debasing his career by starring in Dexter though /sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

Vladimir Kulich. The right look, phsyique, and ability to play brutish Vikings.

This is Victarion landing the Iron Fleet on the shores of Slaver's Bay:

This is Victarion being given his mission by Euron (and secretly seething inside):

This is Victarion at the Kingsmoot:

This is Victarion on the Shield Islands:

This is Victarion first being roused by the prophetic Moqorro, and then dealing with any assassins Euron sends his way:

He's one of the best villains Dexter has had in a long time and Stevenson is praised by the fans. I don't see how that's debasing his career :/

Plus the shows shoot at different times of the year so he can still play Victarion.

Fiennes would make a great Crow's Eye imo

He's really not young and good looking enough. He's got the intensity for sure though. If I had cast him he's be Roose and no questions asked, but that ship has sailed.

Hi all

Put a poll on fanpop, where you can vote on 6 candidates that I like, add comments and even add your own choice of actor at the bottom.

My choice was influenced by their suitability in terms of acting chops, their looks e.g tall, big and brutish in an attractive way and the likelihood of them being cast, in other words disregarding Hollywood actors and instead mainly focusing on British actors.

I would love it, if you could have a look and vote or add your own.

Ray Stevenson would be a great choice but I gotta throw out a couple of other names too:

Craig Fairbrass - Massive, with a huge screen presence and physical enough to play the part

http://www.imdb.com/...13888/nm0265492
http://www.imdb.com/...30208/nm0265492

Lars Mikkelson - If Mads is a fan favourite for Euron, his borther Lars should be considered for Victarion. He's 6 foot 4 inches tall and could look the part

http://www.imdb.com/...98400/nm0586565

Marton Csokas - My orignial dream cast for GOT had Csokas as Victarion and look-alike Ciarin Hinds as Euron. Hinds will be playing Mance Rayder now, but Csokas would still make a great Victarion.

Hi

The link in my previous post does not seem to work so here it is again.

Strangely enough 2 of those in the post above, namely Craig Fairbrass and Ray Stevenson are on my list of choice attractive brutes.

I did not include actors which I thought would be unlikely to be cast, too busy or 'A-list' to take the role.

Please have a pop:

PS: Just had a look at Lars Mikkelson and he looks a treat for the part. Why not add him at the bottom of the poll?

I thought he was just talking about how awful Dexter is most of the time. Stevenson's great though. Would really want him as Victarion. Just looks like he can physically pull it off.

Euron and Victarion->Mads & Lars Mikkelsen! That would be truly awesome, and Lars is a really good actor although he hasn't had the international career of his brother. He does a lot of theater here,and I think he has the strong presence to pull it off. (Here being Copenhagen)

Ray Stevenson for Victarion. Dominic West for Euron..... the Ironborn need to be given more life on screen and I think Stevenson would do a great job as big Vic

Victarion is one of those few characters for whom there are so many actors that can pull him off. It will probably be some random guy we've never heard of.
But I think it will go to Ray Stevenson. He has the look, is the right age and has history with HBO.

I can't believe I'm just now realizing this but Matthias Schoenaerts is absolutely perfect. Huge guy, phenomenal actor, speaks perfect english.

He's kind of blowing up right now though, so I don't know where he'll be a year or so from now, he might be too big a deal.

He's my absolute #1 pick of about 60 seconds ago though. Just perfect.

Victarion is one of my favorite characters in the books, so I really hope they get someone great to play him. Ray Stevenson does seem like he'd be a great Victarion, I thought he was really good in this season of Dexter.

I really like Ray Stevenson, but he's too good-looking for Victarion and too humourous, although his body build is perfect for the role. I've always pictured Victarion with a permanent grumpy face, and I can't see Ray Stevenson doing that. I picture Victarion's body build like Ray Stevenson's, but his face I picture like Mads Mikkelsen's. I also like Mads, but he's not big enough to be Victarion, he'd be better as Euron.

So, does anybody know an actor that looks like Mads Mikkelsen in face and Ray Stevenson in body build? That would be the perfect Victarion for me /cool4.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':cool4:' />

I believe we have different views on what a Huge guy is. Matthias is just over 6 feet tall.

Yeah and Tom Cruise is a fucking giant. Watch Bullhead. /argument.

Irons would be amazing. Who knows, they got Hinds to do the gig.
