Casting other than Euron/Tarlys (BOOK SPOILS)

Recommended Posts

I think the general consensus of the first couple casting descriptions is that some form of Euron and the Tarly family will exist. There are a few other roles with a lot more possibilities. Here are a few



  • Priest, in his 40’s or 50’s. A gruff ex-soldier who found religion. Now a no-nonsense rural priest who ministers to the poor of the countryside. He’s salt-of-the-earth man who has weathered many battles.

Sounds like Septon Meribald, although it’s a little surprising we’d see him next year instead of this year. If it is him, that hints at someone surviving the season.


A few more roles:


  • Leading Actress, in her early 40’s, she’s an elegant actress with a traveling theatre company. Fun, charismatic, rum-drinking actress in the troupe.
  • Priestess. Mid-20’s to early 30’s. Any ethnicity- she’s beautiful, intense, and magnetic.
  • Fierce Warrior, a tall man in 30’s or 40’s with a powerful physique. They’re looking for someone with “mixed ethnicity” for the role.

There are a few more that are all younger boys, so I assume that they are all flashbacks. Probably part of Bran's flashbacks.



For the ones I listed I think a bit more guesswork can be done. Here are my guesses:



Priest- I find the Elder Brother much more likely than Meribald. I can't imagine Brienne will still meet Meribald. It seems more likely she might go search for Rickon instead of Davos, and catch a glimpse of the 'gravedigger' and EB



Leading Actress- This one I am lost on. I know it's possible this character is created by D&D, or we have yet to see her in the text.. Perhaps Arianne is in disguise? Spitballing..



Priestess- Septa Lemore..? It doesn't make much sense she would be introduced without Griff, YG, Duck, etc.



Fierce Warrior- I saw Darkstar somewhere, and that seemed solid. I know he's hardly been in the book, but as the only remaing adult Dayne so far he seems relevant..



Thoughts?

Could the Priest be Aeron Damphair? He drowned while fighting in the Greyjoy Rebellion, and found his religion after that, and he's definitely the gruff type. And also very salty :)

I like it. I think it would be hard to introduce Euron without at least one or two Iron Islanders

The fierce warrior might be a Dayne yes. I really hope they include the Daynes , maybe merge Edric and Gerold into one character.

Priest- Elder brother

Leading actress- She's a character from the Mercy chapter in TWoW, I won't spoil it in case you haven't read the chapter

Warrior- Dothraki Khal

Prestess- No clue. It could be septa Lemore, or it could be a new character.

As for the younger boys. The big, intelligent one is Hodor, the other two are Ned and Brandon.

Priest - an Elder Brother/Meribald mix

Leading actress - in Arya's storyline as Mercy

Priestess - must be a new character, a female Moqorro

Fierce Warrior - Khal Jhaqo/another Khal

Large boy - Young Robert

12 year old boy - Young Brandon

7 year old boy - Young Ned

Damn, ni2tre beat me to it. A leaked audition tape confirms that the priestess is Kinvarra, a female mash-up of Benerro and Moqorro. Similarly, I think that the leading actress could be a gender-swapped Izembaro.
