    Two New Roles in Season 8: Children

    I think that's nigh on impossible with the way people have rallied to the current Lady Lyanna, maybe Lyanna the first but definitely not Lyanna Mormont. Maybe Rhaenys? Or is 8 too old for Rhaegar's firstborn?

    That was Rhaegar?

    In the show, Catelyn and Cersei were aged up and so were their kids.

    Pretty pretty please let us see some singing and harp playing from Rhaegar. The song could even double duty as exposition or prophecy,

    That was Rhaegar?

    I think not having the long flowing hair had something to do with show Daario version1.0. He had long flowing fair hair and Ed Skrein might look like Wilf Scolding in some angles.

    That was Rhaegar?

    You are absolutely right but I still can't help but be disappointed. Which, I think was somewhat the show's goal because we built this character up from hearsay only.

    That was Rhaegar?

    He's 6'4 so definitly taller than Harry Lloyd.

    That was Rhaegar?

    I agree and I know that from the books Rhaegar was said to look very much like Viserys. I think it might even be intentional in the show that he was built up to be this ethereal broody Prince charming and the real deal proves to be anticlimactic like what we expect when we meet celebrities in real life. However I very much expected him to have better hair, longer and prettier like Dany's but in a more masculine style. I just wish they presented him in a way that acknowledges yes he look like Viserys, that gene pool was very small, but more attractive. After having seen Wilf Scolding yes he's taller and I think bigger than Harry Lloyd. I just wish they made him sing. Though the actor probably doesn't. Oh well...
  8. Rhaegar was just a Viserys look-alike? I'm a bit disappointed. I need to be convinced why Lyanna chose him in the first place. He really has to be a charming intense emo singer songwriter for me to be satisfied that Lyanna risked everything to be with him. In short, impress us next season- sing us the "Song of Ice and Fire" Rhaegar! And give us a whole load of prophecy while you're at it. Song-exposition instead of sexposition.

    Any season 8 casting info?

    Will we ever see Rhaegar onscreen? I would dearly love even just a glimpse or a shred of a song.

    Rhaegar Targaryen

    I hope they cast someone who can sing. I'd like to hear Rhaegar sing an important song, one that is epic and full of revelations. Prophetic. One that would make anyone with a heart weep.

    Rhaegar Targaryen

    Does he act? What's his accent? Does he sing? Can he play any instruments? Coz I really want real prospects on Rhaegar. I want to see him so bad... Maybe he's a surprise this season? Hopefully we'll see and hear him sing before this show ends.

    Casting for Robert's Rebellion

    We could all dream... And this thread is the right place for that. Though it is also very compelling to see fancast suggestions that are more in the realm of realistic. We should not forget that this forum is where they heard of Gwendoline Christie for Brienne and Jason Momoa for Drogo. So our dream cast could come true. It is also great to see up and coming actors and out of the box fancasts. Hope GOT casting people are still trawling these threads.

    Casting for Robert's Rebellion

    Well they did switch out Tommen, Daario and Gregor Clegane (twice even) on us. So I can see that continuity in that aspect of character isn't that big of a deal to them. As long as the actor is good as well as the overall production that gaffe might be overlooked. But they should be cautious because it might not work for other characters that are a solid presence throughout the seasons. Still I think it does not matter that Robert was tall. As long as he was strong and physically imposing. That was what he was known for in the books as well as the tv show. Handsome... well... not bad looking I suppose and has black hair. There are a lot of conventions regarding hair color, eye color and build in the books that the show has let go. They have their reasons... It is not always done for convenience but to better serve the story overall. And that makes the conventions (physical traits) that they do follow telling. They mean something and would probably used for the story going forward.

    Casting for Robert's Rebellion

    I know that GRMM has described BookRobert a maiden's wet dream at 6 and a half feet of muscle-ey goodness but the reality is he must resemble the actor who played him later in life Mark Addy or at least the son that he resembles so much, Gendry. A Renly lookalike could also be a contender because he was also said to be a younger version of Robert. A character's book description is not as important as the resemblance of an actor to either the character's older version that has already been casted on the show or their resemblance to actors they are supposedly related in the show. In this case, the show takes precedence over the books.

    Casting for Robert's Rebellion

    I agree, it does look like Chris Hemsworth. I bet it was even modeled after him. Your best chance might be his younger brother Liam Hemsworth because Chris is way out of their budget and super busy with his Thor franchise. Still a lot of people would associate him with his famous movie roles like Gale in the Hunger Games. Though maybe with makeup and a white wig he'd look totally different. For Chris Hemsworth though, a long white wig and black armor is still too similar to his blonde locks and silver armor in Thor. As for me, I've always imagined Rhaegar to be more ethereal. Like those Anime Prince you see that have long flowing hair and almost prettier than the heroine. So I imagined him as tall, slender and graceful. One that would be more skillful than powerful in the battlefield. He was not a born warrior after all. And besides it lends well to his reputation as a scholar and a bard. I know it's stereotyping but people don't usually associate heavy, muscle-ey men to the broody, sensitive, songwriter type.
