i know its at least a season or two away, but the perfect cast for this role would be http://www.imdb.com/...4665/?ref_=sr_1 from dexter season 2 and spartacus, has the right demeanor, super sexy and age/appearance appropriate, and of course it wouldnt be visually unappealing watching the scenes where she tucks cersei into bed =)

I could see that, though I think someone a bit more exotic would be more appropriate. Like Janina Gavankar.

I could see this one playing Ellaria Sand (Oberyn Martell's Paramour) though

I always pictured her Angelina Jolie-esque (though I think Angelina might be somewhat too old to be Taena)...

I think they'll probably cut that scene. But you know, reading Taena's description, Jaime Murray would be PERFECT

I haven't watched that new show Defiance yet, but apparently Julie Benz (Rita) and Jaime Murray (Lyla) are both on it. The idea of those two squaring off again, in a totally different context, kinda makes me want to watch Defiance lol

Natalie Mendoza (Juno from the Descent) or Gina Bellman (Jane from Coupling).

And she certainly has the right first name to jump into cersei's bed.


I always pictured Taena to look somewhat like Eva Longoria. But tbh, i would be fine with basically any hot brunette or black haired for the role, and Jaime Murray certainly fits that description

I don't know if they will cast her as exotic tho she's been replaced with Margaery's beautiful cousin Lady Olenna.

No, with the right make-up and attitude she could come across as more exotic. Although you are right, she would be better suited to Ellaria.

I think Gavankar would be a great Arianne.

What about Olivia Munn? Before you immediately discredit her, she was great in the first season of The Newsroom, and that role gives her HBO connections.

The movie "The Last Legion", despite being awful, seems a breeding ground for GoT Casting... As such, I thought of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for Arianne Martel, but someone pointed out that she's probably too old... so maybe Taenna Merryweather? She is specifically dark skinned in the books, if I recall.

Yeah, Janina Gavankar would make a perfect Taena Merryweather. I liked her a lot on True Blood.

Completely off topic, but Janina Gavankar is from my hometown of Joliet, Illinois!

Back on topic... would Janina be too young for Taena? I imagine her to be of age with Cersei.

I honestly doubt that Taena Merryweather will be cast at all.

Why not? She's a part of Cersei's emotional descent in AFFC, which can be very intriguing television, if done right. She loses her son, her father, is removed from her brother/lover, and lives in fear of her rival(s), and will cling to whatever hangers-on that may come. Who else would she interact with/confide in by that part of the story? Internal monologs are fine on paper, but come off poorly on HBO (unless there's a naked chick in the room). And given her distaste for whores (due to Robert and Tyrion), she's going to need to rationalize what/whom she's doing (even if Merryweather is just a whore with a title).

Impossible. HBO would miss a sex scene.
