Val the Wildling Princess - casting

Recommended Posts

Kathyrn Winnick from Vikings

Woah, that is exactly how I pictured Val when reading the books. I kind of hope Vikings gets cancelled so she has time to do Thrones, is it a good show?

The writing isn't always great, but I like the show and she makes one hot Viking chick, even when she is all dirty and stuff. Of course the perfeclty ruffled/highlighted hollywood hair helps.

Tabrett Bethell

Damn. She would do.

Have they cast Val or Dalla yet?

It doesn't appear so. Some thought Stephanie Blacker was cast as Val initially, but her character's name turned out to be "Violet". She may be a replacement, but it seems at this point most think she has to do with another storyline south of the wall.

Call me obsessed but I seriously love looking at people's opinions on casting roles , so as season 3 of Game of thrones comes , I want to do just one more of them ......

So does anyone have any favourites for the role of Val the wildling princess ?? Personally I'm just going on appearance an personality as I would find it pretty hard to find the PERFECT Val

Here's one

of my own suggestions :

Anna karin Berglund ( she's a Swedish model , aaaaaand how badass would SHE look with blonde hair !! )

I've seen a couple of suggestions, and i have to admit I like this one the best.

Usually when people suggest model, I'm not impressed, because they wear clothes for a living... don't get me started on that :D

Anyways, this gal seems to have that fierce Val look, so I approve...

Has anyone entertained the idea that Val might be cut from the show? Some of the promos have shown Tormund climbing the wall, it's led me to wonder where that will lead. If Tormund is caught or dies on the south side of the wall, doesn't that kind of remove a major purpose for having Val in the story? They've already altered Jon's storyline a fair bit. Considering we don't really know where her character is going in the books, I'm not sure how important the producers consider her. I've seen other people speculate that they aren't going to kill Ygritte off and just keep her as a Val replacement. Maybe I'm becoming too cynical about the show's willingness to stick to the source material. I suppose I'll just have to see how the Tormund stuff pans out this season.

I really hope they don't cut Val. There seem to be hints that she is going to be a major character.

Or if they do cut Val, I hope they at least make some sort of mish-mash-of-characters Val.

I will start a riot if they do !! Val Is easily one f my favourite characters , and I personally don't want Ygritt as a replacement , because she needs to die !!! No not because I hate her but it allowed Jon to grow as a character :( I hope they leave the storyline north of the wall :/

If Val isn't cast yet, here are a couple of options:

http://en.wikipedia....Helena_Mattsson

http://en.wikipedia....i/MyAnna_Buring may be a tad old

http://en.wikipedia....ki/Katia_Winter

http://en.wikipedia..../Emilie_Ullerup

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4033934/

As you can see I think the role should be played by a Scandinavian

shhh don't even talk about them not casting val! i refuse to think about it after what happened some of my other favorite minor characters :crying:

but yeah I agree it looks like val's going to have some sort of role in the future, they may treat her like the reeds and only cast her when absolutely necessary (so maybe for next season when we get more into the wall politics, since she's only occasionally mentioned through most of ASOS and from what I understand that probably wouldn't work logistically if you're hiring a full-time actress). though I will be missing the little bits with val they could have had in this season, like jon initially seeing her from afar, and potential interactions she could have had with Mance and other important wildlings.

edit: we also need Val because her and Gilly being BFFs at the wall is something I must see. but thankfully this can wait until the ADWD portion of the show as well.

Well, frankly speaking, all would be welcome to enter by bedroom.

But all joking aside, Tabrett Bethell matches best what i imagined Val would look like. She would make a great wildling-princess.

As opposed to some adaption-pessimists i don't believe that they are going to leave out Val. That would open a gap in Jon's story-line that is hard to be stuffed with something else.
