Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I'm going to have to pass on that play, GrandMaester. It will be showing in Manchester but the tickets were very expensive I thought and only about 4% were left and the other venues were too far away or difficult to get to. Still, maybe there will be a revival sometime.

Re: Casting the Cast Offs

Another person I had thought of for the Kindly Man was James Bolam https://youtu.be/1t2ioluHYkc A couple of Aunt Genna Lannisters:- Felicity Kendal (clip fairly old from 6 years ago but she still looks pretty good for someone in her 60s - she's the one who DIDN'T play the Trunchbull in the film of M...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

This isn't so much seeing a GoT actor in something else but kicking myself because I missed one in a recent Birmingham Repertory Theatre production. I'm something of a whodunnit addict and the theatre was showing a dramatisation of an Ian Rankin "Rebus" story Long Shadows but it finished on 6th Octo...

Re: Cast GoT with actors from any era - even if it was to be cast now.

We have had 3 different Mountains and they have done their job well but my pick for an alternative mountain would be Swedish Magnus Samuelsson who was the strongest man in the word one year - I liked him in the Arne Dahl thrillers (shown in the UK with English subtitles). He can actually act - this ...

Re: Casting the Cast Offs

I'm not going to complain about more Jaqen in the show but I had thought of the late John Hurt as a possibility for the Kindly Man. I'm not linking anything about him because sadly he wouldn't have been an option any longer but I thought about Martin Shaw https://youtu.be/RKu2y2aPlt0 or another Mart...

Re: Cast GoT with actors from any era - even if it was to be cast now.

She hasn't been in all that many things to my knowledge (she's probably more known as a model) and she's 28 now but Swedish actress/model Kasja Mohammar has a delicate look about her so I wondered if she could be an alternate Daenerys (though I don't mind Emilia Clarke - never have). https://youtu.b...

Cast GoT with actors from any era - even if it was to be cast now.

Hi folks, I did something like this for late 1960s/early 1970s casting speculation. Obviously it's as much of a fantasy as the story of GoT itself as Mr Martin's first book did not come out till 1996. If they were commencing the show now what about French actress Clemence Poesy as a book age Cersei?...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I don't actually have a clip this time but on a history site I sometimes visit a lady had mentioned watching the 1971 film Mary Queen of Scots. I'm old enough to have seen that in the cinema. Anyway, the lady said the film was well acted apart from Timothy Dalton's "over the top" Lord Darnley. TD wa...

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 ...
