[Book Spoilers] Who is Talisa?

137 posts in this topic

Okay, so who is this Talisa girl from Volantis? It seemed like there was a little "spark" there between them, and she kind of looks like the girl that Robb was making out with in the promos. Is this the romance that Robb gets involved with? Thoughts, opinions? Is it simply Jeyne pretending to be someone else?

I think she's a likely Jeyne Westerling replacement. A sort of mystifying replacement, unless the producers think the whole Spicer/Westerling treachery subplot is too difficult for TV viewers to understand?

Hopefully, she is Jane but choosing to remain mysterious for the time being.

Agreed...I'm going to be disappointed if they wipe the whole Westerling betrayal storyline.

It's Jeyne, but she gave Robb a fake identity. The press info and so on all have the actress listed as Jeyne.

Nice info, no need to curse at HBO.

I can't believe that was really that hard for people to figure out.

Great! Glad to know that. I was worried because I remember GRRM being very ambiguous about the girl Robb got involved with, and wouldn't even use the name Jeyne IIRC.

Well she did say "your people aren't my people" or something like that. I suppose it could mean that she was completely neutral, but I took it to mean (to be fair, thinking she was Jeyne beforehand) that she was a Westerner. IF that was the case, being from Volantis wouldn't make much sense.

I thought that i read a rumor that the show has changed her name to Jeyne Lannister so as not to have to explain the relationship between the Westerlings and the Lannisters. I am absolutely positive that this is the character, and I really liked her.

well is it jeyne westerling or jeyne lannister? she didn't look like a lannister, i wouldn't mind the twist, also it looks like they are combining the shadow babies into one event.

wow, didn't see talisa nor volantis coming into the story! i had my misgivings about oona playing jeyne since i thought she was going to play a westerling- minor root of the lannisters, though i had already resigned myself to have her being bold and not afraid to open her mind, unlike thejeyne from the books... but after watching oona i must say that i regret what i said above, i did like the thing going on between her and robb, & i liked that she is from volantis. she is not the jeyne from the books, so i won't judge her by those standards. but being from volantis does make me wonder about some things:

she seems to be alone, so if her mother isn't with her, how will robb and talisa fail to produce an heir? (if the show changes this and they do end up with an heir, i'm still not sure what to make of it)... and the first thing i thought when she said volantis was of one of the sand snakes. i remember shae being thought of as one of oberyn's daughters, but that isn't happening anymore.. and i hope that talisa isn't one either. but it was clever of them to have her being from volantis when in the books we don't really get to know anyone from there, apart from the red priest on vicatarion's ship and the innkeeper of the place where jorah and tyrion sleep, so... but i think that jeyne is high-born, so can't wait to see what they make of her background. they have a clean slate to do so, i guess. but it will be heart-wrenching to see the RW even more now that we'll have robb grow up and fall in love

The second I saw Robb glance at her, I figured she had to be Jeyne. The show couldn't focus on some random aid person like that. The length of the scene underlined that. I also think the whole bit about being from Volantis is a lie.

Yeah, Jayne Westerling. And I don't think they'll call her Jayne Lannister, Robb would never marry a Lannister. Besides, that could mean the end of the whole war between them.

She's probably a distant cousin so I don't think it matters if Robb marries her.

Jeyne Westerling - Not sure if theyre creating a new character or she was hiding her name.

She could be from "House Lannister of Lannisport" (ie: a minor cadet branch).
