Hello from Benioff and Weiss

Recommended Posts

And do you have to be a UK or USA Actor? I will give it a try for a Dornishman then.



Thank you very much for your help. I guess i can just send my profil by e-mail. A last question, do you think it's better to send a self taped presentation? A self-taped scene from GoT? or my Showreel will be good enough?



I do appreciate your time Halb,

There are non UK actors in the show. I think it would depend on the quality of your accents.

The original Mountain sent in a self-tape. You could do that? As Quentyn? Depends on the quality of the showreel really. Have you heard how Oberyn speaks in the show? Something similar to that I would suppose.

I have a good showreel as i got an Agent with it, but it is a small Talent agency so i do not expect anything from them, i am digging and looking for jobs like if i had no agent.



I will work with all these new informations and contact the casting directors. I am already working on Oberyn's accent, it is easier for me than a Jon Snow accent.



I will also let you know if anything happened, who knows...



Best regards

Seriously though, cast me for aegon. I'd own his character.

If you have some acting work i would love to see how Aeron could be with you and give you a feedback if you want. Anyway, give it a try, you have nothing to loose to send your self taped audition to Nina Gold's office.

Goodluck

Travis Fimmel as Darkstar, if Darkstar is to appear on the show that is. Same actor could also fit quite well as Euron Greyjoy!

Ray Stevenson as Victarion Greyjoy.

In general I think it would be nice to see less know actors in important roles, as long as they fit!

I don't usually weigh in on casting discussions, but here are my preferences for some characters from the next two seasons:

Euron Greyjoy: David Wenham - Best known for: Faramir (The Lord of the Rings). He definitely has the acting chops and bears a resemblance to Alfie Allen.

Victarion Greyjoy: James Purefoy - Best known for: Mark Antony (Rome)

Aeron Greyjoy: The guy that played the nameless Drowned Priest in season 2 :P

Griff/Jon Connington: Kevin McKidd - Best known for: Lucius Vorenus (Rome)

Wyman Manderly: Ian McNeice - Best known for: Baron Vladamir Harkonnen (Frank Herbert's Dune). He was also Illyrio Mopatis in the pilot.

Brown Ben Plumm (assuming the role hasn't been cut entirely): Giancarlo Esposito - Best known for: Gustavo Fring (Breaking Bad)

Doran Martell: Edward James Olmos - Best known for: William Adama (Battlestar Galactica)

Arianne Martell: Aimee Garcia - Best known for: Jamie Batista (Dexter)

Nymeria Sand: Janina Gavankar - Best known for: Luna Garza (True Blood)

The Tattered Prince (assuming the role isn't cut entirely), or any other role as long as he is on the show: John Hannah - Best known for: Quintus Lentulus Batiatus (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena/Blood and Sand)

Any role as long as he is on the show: Viggo Mortensen - Best known for: Aragorn Elessar (The Lord of the Rings). He should have been Mance Rayder...

AND ABOVE ALL:

Young Griff: Jamie Campbell Bower - Best known for: King Arthur Pendragon (Camelot). He is also in a main role in the upcoming film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Also, he was the original Waymar Royce in the pilot, so D&D definitely know about him.

Shiva from the League in Got.........OMFG!!!!!!

They started it for a reason. Now, is it their first stop when choosing actors, probably not, though it may have helped a couple of the role get filled.

I think this thread got Dinklage the gig

Wow! You've done your HW!

The only one I'd quibble with is Robbie Coltrane. Not that he wouldn't be fantastic as Manderlay, I just think he might cost more than HBO would be willing to pay him.

But we can hope,

Hi, guys.



Doran: EJ Olmos



Arianne: Elena Furiase



Hotah: Peter Mensah



Ben Plumm: Hoji Fortuna



Crow's Eye: James Purefoy



Victarion: Ray Stevenson



Damphair: Just cast the same cat from Theon's baptism in season 2



Wyman Manderly: Brian Blessed, that role is practically gift wrapped for him.



the Waif: Suzuka Ohgo (Since you guys are apparently looking for an East Asian actress)


- http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1797214/



Kindly Man - Ian McDiarmid. Not sure I want Darth Sideous playing the Kindly Man, but I'll let him try.



And finally, STRONG BELWAS. HE HAS TO BE SEEN IN THIS SHOW. And to that end I nominate Solofa Fatu Jr. AKA Rikishi.

D&D,



I am a Dutch man with a beard.. In light of Conchita Wurtz, can I be cast as Arianne Martell?



Jokes aside, Arianne Martell must be the downright hottest actrice alive.. Megan Fo*shot*



Well, I'm sure you're getting the best you can and don't need my limited help, but then there's this Dutch actress you should give a call for Arianne or perhaps a mix of two Sandsnakes: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm1215805184/nm1597542?ref_=nmmd_md_nxt



Visually, she looks incredibly Dornish.



That or Cansu Dere..

Manu Bennet- Dark Star was absolutely terrific in Spartacus and Arrow. Has the Sallow look for a Dornishman and fairly muscular.

Mads Mikkelsen- Euron its gotta be.

Viggo Mortensen for Vic would be good. Gotta see that nasty side to him though. However first choice has to be Clive Standen from Vikings. Plays a serious warrior and "Rollo" in vikings is a very similar character to Vic.
