Re: Spot the random GOT actor

This one I'm really not sure about but in this video made by a then singer (as in sang catchy pop songs, not anything frightfully highfalutin') who is now more known as an actress - is that Rob Stark at about 1.43 with sunglasses on? Whether it's him or not the person is only an extra and not on scr...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I didn't post a link to Elisa Lasowski as Her Majesty Queen of France, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8WDw0xu-UU She appears at about 0.03 in the clip linked above and talks a bit later. Richard E Grant who played Lady Crane's boss, the rather disagreeable actor manager, played the title role in t...

Re: Martell/Dorne

I know I'm late as the last post here was in 2017 - there are actually 8 sand snakes in the books though they dropped the subplot about where one of them is (probably) in the show. Perhaps to someone whose native tongue is Spanish the accents did sound off. Only one of the show sand snakes has a Bri...

Re: Book to Show Quotes

In my earlier post I should have said 'when Jon and Tyrion have their talk about.......' which hopefully would make more sense than the sentence with those words omitted.

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I'm sure this has been mentioned before but at 1.00 Maester Aemon as "Grouty" (Harry Grout) the prisoner who organised all the smuggling and other nefarious doings under the noses of the prison guards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xOldHAIXXo The show was called "Porridge" - slang term for jail t...

Re: Book to Show Quotes

In book GoT when Jon and Tyrion have their "all bastards are dwarves to their fathers" and other things, Jon notices that when Tyrion leaves the place where they have been talking that for a moment the small man cast a tall shadow, or long shadow (sorry it's a while since I listened to the audio boo...

Re: The She-Wolf of the Vale

Herewith a very belated reply from me, Wimsey. I suppose I was thinking of (book) Sansa disposing of Bealish in the vale by casting him down because the vale Eyrie is located very high, and I was thinking of a literal casting down but it could be a metaphorical one and be carried out differently.

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

These posts are only for fun really (and I'm avoiding spoilers like the plague). I may have mentioned this one in a thread on the main site at some occasion but in the 1989 made for TV The Fifteen Streets based on a Catherine Cookson book a young Sean Bean played the bad brother (at about 1 minute i...

Can anybody advise me what is allowed by the First Amendment

Hi, in the UK somebody recently had to pay a fine because of some words exchanged with some paramedics who had come to attend to a neighbour. The person had also put a note on the ambulance saying that it shouldn't have been posted across her drive. It was on an online news site and some people from...
