Re: The winds of winter release date

To be honest I haven't been that struck on the pre-released WoW chapters (well the Arya one was okay and it was [sort of] used in the show) though I haven't read all of them. Yes, I'd like to know the ending but I'm past the stage when I first got drawn in by the show version and then moved on to th...

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

This is actually from the 1950s but French-English actress, Yvonne Furneaux might have made a suitable (if slightly older than book) Ashara Dayne had the character been cast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9nHdaCVLtA She's at about 1:23 in the foregoing clip from the 1959 version of "The Mummy" wi...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

In British drama "No Angels" about nurses who were not particularly angelic (show dating from the earlyish 2000s) at 1.16 Yoren's actor gets embroiled in a fight [not one he started] in this clip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdASN6rpgNA Both Yoren and Lancel were in "House of Anubis" - children'...

Curses! I should have said 4 Cerseis! Though maybe Cersei does sometimes tempt one to curse.

Re: Casting the Cast Offs

I realised belatedly that there was something similar to this on the Westeros site [I don't lurk there very often now because it became very anti-show, though I guess folk are entitled to have opinions]. I can't say that there may not have been something in my subconscious about the Westeros thread,...

Casting the Cast Offs

This doesn't relate to leaks but I was thinking about actors who could have played some of the book characters who ended up on the floor of Messrs B&Ws' writing room so am posting this here because I don't want to spoil the books for people who might want to read them later. A few years ago in the U...

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

As I posted on a thread in the main website today I broke my dominant arm before Xmas so even though there are loads of household chores to do I haven't been able to manage them so have had time on my hands [well I tried some left-handed dusting but I wasn't very good at it. Anyway, here are my thou...

Re: So how could S7 have been improved?

I think the season could have done with more episodes to develop the story. As there were some wight giants why not have wight giants carrying some chains? I know some people had concerns that the provenance chains used to pull Viserion's body from the pool was not obvious. As we are now nearing the...
