Thoughts on differences between show and books

I hope to come back to this thread to post something more profound but I'm starting with something I can type without engaging my brain in gear. A list of five characters where I prefer the book version and five characters where I prefer the show version. Ones I liked better in the books (I don't me...

Re: Casting the Cast Offs

I tried to post Willas and Garlan suggestions in one post but the first time I tried although I had logged in once I had been kicked out when I pressed 'Submit' to post. I haven't got a clip of him acting but I thought about Mark Rendall, who played the playwright who also doubled as a spy in 'Versa...

Some thoughts on how I found show GoT positive (sort of)

Five Ways I feel I have benefited from the show, Game of Thrones I'll add that sometimes the 'benefits' weren't all in a good way (some were) but point 3 was really making me more aware rather than impacting me positively. 1. I came to the show before I came to the books and am grateful to the show ...

Source material https://youtu.be/VGgQDdx1WRo Real life Arya Stark 2nd continuation A somewhat sinister case of a woman who dressed as a man was that of Viktoria Fodi, a cross-dressing serial killer from Hungary.

Re: Examples of Women cross-dressing as Arya Stark did for part of her story

Second part. Five real life examples of women/girls who dressed as men/boys. Well, one may be more folklore/rumour. Hope you find this worth perusing. Possibly one of the least successful ladies who tried to pass herself off as a male was Ethel Neave or Le Neve, the lady friend of Dr Crippen (a home...

Examples of Women cross-dressing as Arya Stark did for part of her story

My next post will give 5 real life examples of women/girls who have dressed as men/boys for various reasons, it could be family honour, it could be for safety, perhaps they were doing ...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I am spending a little less time in Westeros these days. I thought the lock-down might be a suitable time to work through my "to do" list. The results so far are mixed though I still check the main site in case there is anything new. I can't copy any link over but I saw a picture of one of the Pirat...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I mentioned on the main part of the site today that the Mother of Dragons and Ellaria Sand (Emilia and Indira) are appearing on stage in London in a production of Chekhof's (sp?) 'The Seagull'. I haven't been able to find a write-up of it yet. Of course at the time of making this entry (March 2020) ...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

According to redanianintelligence (which this site links to) Kristofer Hivju has been cast in The Witcher and there is a rumour (as yet unsubstantiated) that Natalie Dormer might have been cast in the same series. Edit - scrub the info about Natalie Dormer because it has been denied - I wouldn't hav...
