a question about Mance Rayder

Recommended Posts

This question ties in with the tv show as well.

Mance tells Jon he was at winterfell.

I don't doubt he was, but my two questions are.

In the show, do you think they showed him in the background?

I realize its way to early to know what he looks like (in the tv show) but once we do, do you think it will be one of those (oohh ok ) moments?

Two. Wouldn't Benjen see him?

I just read this part, so my guess would be if Benjen didn't see him, he warg or skinchanged go unknoticed.

If it explains this later in the book just tell me to keep reading.

No, he has not been cast and won't be until S3 is greenlighted. This is the kind of things that fans would love, but it has no sense from a producer's perspective. Why spend time and resources contracting with a casting for a part of someone without lines that will be kept on the foreground? You won't be able to credit him or do close-ups. You have the risk that after all the efforts the actor won't return three years later. And only the most die-hard fans will noticie it.

Two. Wouldn't Benjen see him?

Benjen has never seen Mance Rayder. He joined the Watch after the Rebellion, and Mance has been with the wildlings for many years.

If producers decide for Mance's flashback they could shoot new scene in the hall. Simply use new extras for guests then use view of lord's table from different angle, to look as if Mance is looking at them
