Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I don't live in Birmingham but if there was an afternoon showing of the play I might have been able to get back to my hometown while public transport was still running. I have overnighted at Birmingham New Street Station some years ago and it's not necessarily something I want to repeat. It's ridic...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Conleth Hill playing a titled gentleman in "Suits". I'd like to find something where he uses his natural Irish accent but no luck so far. https://youtu.be/Xg6NKTBIDs4 Conleth Hill played the brother of Irish comedian Dave Allen in the biographical drama "Dave Allen At Peace". Dave Allen was played ...

Re: AGOT special edition

I definitely recommend reading the spliced-together version. When I found out that it existed, I'd read about a quarter of AFFC, and had no hesitation in dropping that and starting again with the combined version. It won't surprise me at all if the two books are published in that form in the future....

Love Iain Glenn's voice, but for me the clear winner is Michael McElhatton as Roose Bolton.

Re: Tormund & Beric are okay!

I thought it was fairly obvious that they got away.

Re: Tormund & Beric are okay!

There's really no need for this to be in Quarantine. It is from S7, so no spoilers are involved.

Re: So how could S7 have been improved?

Why is this in Quarantine?

I thought Quarantine was for discussing spoilers, and we are long past that for S7.

Re: Jon/Aegon in the books

Re: Jon/Aegon in the books

Re: Jon/Aegon in the books

I'm not overly convinced he'd have named two sons with the same Targaryen name - there's no need even if he was obsessed with the prophecy. I've asked this before, but I keep seeing references linking the name Aegon with a prophecy. Does this prophecy include the name Aegon? If not, where is the re...
