I'm sorry if Mace's role has already been cast, but I haven't seen his name on any of the few places where I've searched for Season 3 actors. This seems pretty weird, since he's far more important a character than many others who have already been cast. In a worst-case scenario he would simply be mentioned, with Margaery/Loras taking his active role. That could also imply that GRRM doesn't want to cast him, as Mace is going to die very early in WoW.

But anyway, who would be good for playing Mace Tyrell? While reading I always pictured him as sort of Gerard Depardieu-esque character, but as far as the character's darker side goes (As in DwD-Mace and quite possibly WoW-Mace), Gerard, on my opinion, just can't pull it off as he'd always feel too comical for anything else than bragging about his nonexistant battle skills.

We don't shit about Mace, we don't even know if he's being cast for this season. Perhaps they delay his appearance to next season.

He's still a pretty important role it would be stupid if they left him out.

I agree, either way they already casted someone (one hell of an actor) and want to surprise us, or they will delay him.

Surely Mace Tyrell has to appear in season three. He must be present at his daughter's wedding.

I guess they will give his lines and actions to Olenna and Loras.

Yeah, but why? He's a great character and exists in the series (Davos mentions him in season 2, if I remember correctly).

I wouldn't say he's a necessity for season 3. His key scenes will be

So casting him right now doesn't seem massively important.

Maybe they have him come to King's Landing together with/or at the same time as Oberyn in season 4.

Again, if we resolve to this, I'm on the side of those who can definitly see the PW ending this season.

But I'm quite sure Mace will not be there... I can see it being explained my Marg with something like "My father is too busy at Highgarden, he's really sorry".

if they do the pw in season 3 then they really need to have mace there if their going to introduce him at all, i mean, what kind of guy doesnt go to his own daughters wedding? however, if they leave it until next season, then i'm fine with the delay

Mace Tyrell is Nathaniel Parker in my opinion https://lh6.googleus...20Agravaine.jpg

and other Tyrells
Willas Tyrell: Rupert Young http://www.flying-lo...57/311_1742.jpg

They will probably do all the things related to the Starks//Tullys in the Season 3 and Joffrey's wedding in Season 4. That's why they haven't showed Mace Tyrell yet.

I can't imagine Olenna Tyrell to go to King's Landing all on her own. But somehow I've got the feeling that they will give Mance's role to her.

I have a hard time imagining the queen of thorns beyond the wall as well. I guess this is just the way the writers want to take the show now. After season two, deviations like this were inevitable.

He might just be an occasional guest star character like Balon Greyjoy.

They wouldn't have brought him up in the show unless he will be in it IMO.

I can't understand how I could've missed Nathaniel. He has Mace written all over him. The Tyrell boys are pretty fitting, too, but so far they don't have much screentime.

Well, that was obviously a typo.

That is the first thing I thought when I saw him as Agravaine de Bois in Merlin.

For the boys,well... they are pretty to look at. /leer.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':leer:' /> After all Rupert Young has red hair with light green-blue eyes and I think that Willas is a typical brown hair-brown eyes Tyrell.
