Diana Rigg cast as Olenna Tyrell

Recommended Posts

Has anyone read Gone with the Wind?

The Queen of Thorns reminds me exactly of Grandma Fontaine.

That is just how I picture her. Frail of body not in mind. Sharp, sharp, sharp, acid tongue...Survival is paramount above all. And laugh out loud funny in their I don't give a crap what you think, I will do and say as I please.

Diana seems too elegant for how I pictured Olenna, but the show is always another facet of the books and it should be fun.

Wonderful, legendary actress, but I am not sure she is right for the role.

Jesus, you're right!!! You're completely right!!

When I first read when Olenna appears I was waiting for Mrs. Tarleton and Scarlett and Young Miss to appear to get bawled out and told how stupid they're being.

I was like forget Queen of Thorns...."Grandma F is that you?" LOL!

Or at least give my favorite speech, the bend like buckwheat or you wither and die!

Wow this is awesome! The best Bond girl ever and one of my favorite actresses of the 60's. As if Game of Thrones couldn't be any cooler. I only wish she had a bigger role to play. Lady Olenna doesn't get enough screen time.

R.I.P. Patrick Macnee Diana`s co-star in The Avengers ,great pairing on a great show

I thought for a second there that Diana had died!!! :o

Still sad all the same for Patrick though. A good actor.

Speaking of Diana though, I hope she has more to do in Season 6. We definitely didn't see enough of her in Season 5.

This is definitely one character who I think has been handled better on the show than in the books.

Yeah she's been delightful in the show. I wish she'd had more to do this season as well. One of my favorite bits so far which really has nothing to do with anything, but amuses me when I see it:



Lady Olenna, upon meeting Brienne: "Aren't you marvelous!"
