Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Ciaran Hinds (Mance) has been in loads of things - I couldn't find him in Catherine Cookson's The Man Who Cried - could only find a different story with a similar name with Johnny Depp. Anyway, a clip of CH as Captain Wentworth in Jane Austen's Persuasion https://youtu.be/NYSzac4mccA and another in ...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

It's reasonably well known that Wilko Johnson (Ilyn Payne) left GoT because he had cancer. He had some radical surgery but I think he wanted to concentrate on his music rather than acting because his health was still not 100%. (He was quite well known as a rock type musician in the UK before GoT). H...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

People may already know that I hated The Mentalist with all my heart but I hate him even more now for treating Prince Oberon badly! https://youtu.be/yDWwKadqs48

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Thanks for the info Grandmaster. By the way I did belatedly thank you for answering my question on whether it was worth reading AFFC and ADWD as a tandem read. Continuing to play characters a bit younger than her calendar age, Kerry Ingram has been in a (for children) show about kids and horses call...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

The Bodyguard, a current BBC TV show which is definitely on my "to be watched" list but Robb Stark's actor is in it. https://youtu.be/jZj4M_Qz-mI

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Thanks for your reply, Chilli. This may have been mentioned before but on BBC's Atlantis Mark Addy played Hercules https://youtu.be/qDbvacvPKPk I'm too old to look at men and go "Phoar!" but if I was young enough I would probably do so for the Kevin Sorbo version of Hercules though. Paul Kaye was in...

Re: If GoT was shot in the late 1960s early 70s - for fun

Perhaps a young Jenny Agutter (more recently played Sr Julienne in Call the Midwife) might suit Sansa. She'd have had to colour her hair or go "wiggy" though. Young Jenny Agutter is the one who asks the question about incest. https://youtu.be/ngTQ_C7cxyE I can't think of an Arya at the moment (of co...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I'm only posting a link to an answer to a quora question here - it seems I merely scratched the surface when I mentioned 4 people being in both series. There were a whole bunch of members of the acting profession who appeared in both series - I've had to edit this because the link didn't go to the s...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Well, Alexandra Dowling only played small parts in those shows. She had a larger part in The Musketeers . AD had a larger part where she played Anne of Austria in The Musketeers. I didn't know Carice van Houten before GoT but when I looked her up I found some videos of her singing - I thought she ha...

Re: If GoT was shot in the late 1960s early 70s - for fun

Thinking about some red-headed actresses who might have been suitable as Caitlyn - though they might be a tad young (by their 1960s/70s ages) - not a natural redhead apparently (thus says Wikipedia) but Ann-Margret Olsson (usually just known as Ann-Margret) but I include her for your consideration h...
