Re: Do not buy into the hype of S8

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: Spot the random GOT actor

The new(ish) Outlaw King film about Robert the Bruce (which I haven't seen yet) features, as mentioned upthread, Stephen Dillane (Stannis) as the King of England, Clive Russell (the Blackfish) as the Lord of Skye and James Cosmo (Lord Commander Mormont) as a senior member of the Bruce (de Brus) fami...

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...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Mirri Maz Duur and her backing group sing an American murder ballad. She doesn't have a bad voice (in my opinion at least). How close she approximates to an American accent I have no idea. https://youtu.be/VZJ8ss-Sue0

On which side of the road do they ride in Westeros?

I was looking at some videos about the day in 1967 in Sweden when the country changed from being a left-hand drive country to a right-hand drive one. It made sense in a way because its neighbours were right-hand drive countries. https://youtu.be/6iIZ5KvmjSk https://youtu.be/Y8DqAIyuR0Q Apparently pe...
