Florina Laufeyson Posted April 23, 2014 Share Posted April 23, 2014 He probably regards the show versions of his characters as completely distinct from the book versions. I will be interested to see, when WoW is released, if I can detect any signs of shifting in his characters based on show interpretations he might actually like -- as in, will he deliberately or inadvertently start modeling Tyrion more like Peter Dinklage, with Dinklage's mannerisms? Will Sansa seem more like Sophie Turner? How about Brienne and her actress? I know JK Rowling had this happen with her characters during the Harry Potter series. The films were actually affecting how she saw the characters. Snape became more and more Alan Rickman and less Slimy Asshole Teacher. He was full blown Alan Rickman in the sixth and seventh book. I think with GRRM, he might start Dinklaging Tyrion a little and Arya might be a little bit more Maisie, but i doubt it will be like "oh i like that so im going to deliberately do it." I think he'll just begin doing it subconsciously. I dont think the descriptions of the characters will change though. About That One Scene, im a little sad about it cuz Jaime in the show and Jaime in the books seemed to be pretty much the same guy. While i dont think Show Jaime is RUINED FOREVER, he isnt quite the same guy anymore and thats disappointing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
