Hello from Benioff and Weiss

Recommended Posts

Ian McShane as Prince Doran or Qyburn!!!!!

i see him more as qyburn than doran

but denis lawson would be a perfect doran

and the two actresses who i think could be the most wonderful choices for the queen of thorns would be either maggie smith or vanessa redgrave

Javier Bardem as The Red Viper

I never thought about this, but it would be cool. Not gonna lie, but that's possibly because I really like Javier Bardem........

I'm really excited about seeing who they cast for Meera, Jojen, and BLACKFISH!!!!

Claire Garvey for Val! Or Meera Reed. She is northern and a great unknown choice with magical eyes.

Terrible choice for both. Her age range is 22-30. Meera is 16. Val is physically nothing like this woman, at all.

But, they did totally screw up casting "Talisa" instead of jeyene, and Renley was SOOO off of what he was in the book, I wouldn't be surprised if a short, dark haired 30yro ended up playing Val.

I wouldn't normally punt her for Meera, but as they aged everyone up so far, especially Margaery, and Meera isn't romantically linked to anyone, I don't see how her age would matter. I know the wiki states that Val is blonde but I don't remember reading that description in the book.

You need to read the book again, then.

And yes, Marg is aged up, but the actress looks younger than this one does. Marg doesn't look 30.

Personal opinion. I think Natalie Dormer looks every one of her 30 years. Claire is and looks younger - she's mid twenties and at only 5'2 looks younger than that. And Bran having a crush on Meera is at the very far end of a romantic link - considering he seems to be turning into a tree at the moment I can't see how their future has any well.. future?

My suggestion for Queen of thorns would be Hazel Douglas (you might know her from Bathilda Bagshot role from HP and the Deathly Hallows). She might be a bit too old for this role, but oh well, this is more or less how i imagine her to look like.

It may be a couple years away until Quentyn Martell's escapade in Meereen will be cast and filmed (possibly in Morocco) and I sincerely hope that GoT completes the entire series of novels but I do wonder about "Q, Drink and Arch"("QDA"). I think that trio of characters is going to play well on screen.... but for the build up and pay off of "mission: retrieval and betrothal of the dragon queen" to really send viewers to crazy town you need a great actor to play Quentyn.

He is learned to the point of being nerdy. He's a hopeless romantic that aspires to be a cutthroat heroic champion of Westeros, but he is an awkward lumbering kidman(age em up).

Maybe Andrew Garfield as Quentyn. Aged up considerably but Garfield still looks youthful. I mean he just played f'n high school Peter Parker.

Also others have said that this person and that person are "too big" or concentrated on their "movie career." I think that those individuals severely underestimate the professional opinion and esteem that HBO productions carries.

And a one season arc would be equivalent to filming a movie methinks.

For Drink and Arch I think Chris Hemsworth for Drink (again another big name but consider the freakin possibility of plucking these guys out of the Marvel Universe and dropping them ASOIAF) and someone bigger for Arch, maybe Vinny Jones

Tom Hiddleston's name has been thrown around a lot on this forum and I think he could play a spot on Ramsey

I just think Q has to be considerably meeker but ultimately more determined than D&A. Again, wild hyperbole, but if I was D&D I'd get these guys agents on the phone now, and promise AG the chance at an Emmy bc they could turn the "Meereen Knot" into a fucking beautiful show IMHO

What is the point of this? Not only are none of those actors ever going to be in GOT, they're not suitable for the characters at all.

Did you even read the description of Quentyn Martell? Have you seen Andrew Garfield? Terrible, terrible casting. Even if it was possible that suggestion is just so off, it's ridiculous.

No, those others are 100% right. Seriously, nothing is a more gigantic waste of time in casting discussions than watching people endlessly propose people that will never be on television. "Severely underetimate the professional opinion and esteem that HBO productions carries" - ok then, why don't you name a single actor in a single HBO show who was in a blockbuster A-list film before he went to the show?

Seriously man, it comes off as fantasy. Even if their agent fell and hit their head and decided "yeah, going from blockbuster films to television won't harm your future job prospects" (its supposed to be the other way around!) how much do you think they would ask in salary?

Enough of these frankly delusional casting proposals.

I see that I've attracted quite a bit of ire from other posters over the proposal of certain actors in certain roles. If I may address a few things

1) I'm not nor did I ever claim to be a professional casting director and my suggestions were merely fanboy musings (though apparenty seriously misguided ones). So... the actors may not be suitable at all, but they were stuck in my head for one reason or another and I decided to make an obscure post on a fan site that is dedicated to obscure fan postings.

2) I have read Quentyn's description and I do know who Andrew Garfield is (notice I posted a link to make sure you did). I know their physical descriptions don't add up but I was hoping that quentyn's optimistic and romanticized view of life would be forefront in the role and ultimately be more important than his looks.

3) this actor or that actor is ....... HBO is not tv (check their tagline) I'll make a list (that is more than one name long) of actors who have been in "blockbuster, a-list" movies and also HBO ( in that order)

Dustin Hoffman

Laura Linney

Thomas Jane

John Goodman

Timothy Olyphant

(without checking IMDB this is what I pulled from memory and I'm sure I could supplement this post in post with many more)

In closing. I'm sorry if my ludicrous ideas have ruined your experience on this thread or site.

P.S. I usually restrict my posts to the general ASOIAF section and find those posters to be consistently more accepting to fan theory/input.

ETA: spelling & deleting a suggestion that people should take their negativity elsewhere... I shall relish in their spite

Hi D &D

First up I'd like to congratulate you on the show so far. It's superb. Everything I hoped it would be. Secondly I think you should have a look at young British actor Craig Roberts for the role of Young Griff/Aegon (if he's going to be in the show that is). Craig starred in the independent movie Submarine and has had a few other roles in films. He's seriously talented and looks to have a great future ahead of him. Good luck with season 3. I really can't wait.

You're joking, right? Which of these is at all equivalent to the star of The Amazing Spider-man and the star of Thor and a star of the Avengers? The only one who has actually had real success in that list in movies is Dustin Hoffman, and the zenith of his career was decades ago.

Point proved man, yeah, well done! :)

(and don't be so dramatic)

Well, I think it's not out of the realm of possibility that those characters COULD appear in an HBO series sometime in the future, but there is no way they would be able to do so while they are still headlining successful movie franchises, because their schedules would prohibit that from happening.
