Nictarion Posted April 13, 2015 Share Posted April 13, 2015 (edited) He is the original Lancel actor. http://www.zap2it.com/blogs/game_of_thrones_season_5_lancel_lannister_return_hair-2015-04 They originally approached Dominic West for Mance, but he turned it down, not having any knowledge of ASOIAF. To this day, when I read Mance, I see Mr. West's face. Mance became king by defeating the some of the leaders of the Free Folk in battle. Put tv Mance and tv Tormund side by side, and it becomes puzzling as to how that would happen. I can't see tvMance taking on tvAlliser in last season the way tvTormund did, imo. I seem to remember hearing something about James Purefoy too. He is much closer to how I picture Mance. ETA: I completely agree with your point in the spoiler tag. That's part of why I didn't like Hinds in the role. Edited April 13, 2015 by Nictarion Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
