These are the remaning important characters that appear before the RW in Book 3 and may be cast.
Note: I am not a fanatic purist and have no problem with changes... just making a list:
: I guess they will cast him. GRRM said they will be revisiting Theon in S3 and they cant do that without Ramsay.
: He was mentionned in the list of new characters D&D gave us a while ago and he is vital to Jaime's story. Having already Rorge, Biter and Qyburn proves we shall have the Bloody Mummers.
: I dont think HBO will skip the most beautiful woman (imo) of the saga and she becomes more important later. And with probably Orell taking over the roles of many wildlings, I guess we shall need more faces beyond the Wall.
: please, please, please, dont mix her up with Val ! It would ruin her character ! Val is fierce and wild, a warrior. Dalla is a mother, shy and quiet... not the same character at all !
: he was on the list and is vital to Dany's story.
: I wouldnt mind if this one was to be cut... never liked this character...
: except if they put him forward only later, as in the books.
: figured extras for a few episodes.
: dont remember when exactly does he really appears in the books.
: I really hope to have him this season. Nobody has talked about him, yet, I think he must be cast, alongside many Tyrell extras (Alerie, cousins and stuff) to show the grandeur of their House.
Night's Watch extras:
Small John and the renegades turning their cloak at Craster's Keep.
: like Jon Arryn, an already dead man when he appears. I hope Cat will get there in time for the funeral, that was a great moment in the book.
: to show they are a great House: men at arms, captains, household...
: such a great house... and some big names: Black Walder, Jared Frey and others...
: except if Anguy becomes also Lem and Tom.
will be for next season... I still wonder how this gonna turn out: if the Purple Wedding is this season, what will be the pretext for the Dornish to show up only after it ? Well, let us wait and see...
