Re: Lord Parramandas's Memory Lane journey - video recaps and reviews

Do you sometimes post on "IsWinterComing" Lord P - though it seems very quiet there at the moment. Mind you I have been posting less myself both there and here. I don't belong to Reddit but I do sometimes read "ACircleJerkofIceandFire" just for the laughs.

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

This isn't actually an actor from GoT but I had never realised there was a film about Ice Spiders. The film came out in the 'noughties' so before GoT the series but after GoT the book. Whether or not the makers of the science-fiction film took inspiration from GRRM I have no idea - or how good (or b...

I'll make my own decision whether I'll "buy into hype" or not, thank you very much.

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I tried to find a clip of N or M where Hannah Waddingham played "blonde assassin" but no luck. I'm posting a link to an episode from a BBC radio series The Pillow Book. There was a real lady Shonegun (sp) who did write a Pillow Book though the drama series was of course fiction. The first series dat...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I won't be watching it (not been over impressed with Starz's offerings thus far and I didn't like the little that I tried of the work of the writer who wrote the source material) but Charlotte Hope (Myranda, Ramsey Bolton's toxic [show] girlfriend) will be playing Catherine of Aragon in something ca...

Re: Casting the Cast Offs

In the run-up to season 5, before it became evident that some of the Mereen plot of ADWD had been excised in the jump from book(s) to show but previously I had thought of Josette Simon as a possibility for the Green Grace. This clip is from 2014, so not right bang up to date. Ms Simon was in a Briti...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Chilli, maybe JK Rowling is an Agatha Christie fan and played tribute to her in a way. It's not a secret that GRRM has sometimes given his characters names from works he liked (Samwell Tarley's first name is similar to that of a character in LoTR for example). It's very fleeting but Gilly appears in...
