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 UK some people were thinking of Angel Coulby https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angel_Coulby or Leonora Critchlow https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lenora_Crichlow though they are both in their 30s now though they look good. I thought about Vanessa Hudgens at one time. My two current suggestions are more slender than book Arianne:
Mlle Josephine Jobert (Death in Paradise) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5l9HLQzsTWc
and Ms Cush Jumbo (The Good Fight) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cush_Jumbo. They are both in their early 30s though they look good.

My pick for a young Caitlyn if there was a flashback was Olivia Hallinan (Lark Rise to Candleford)

though she's in her early 30s now though she looks young.
For a young Lysa I thought of Ria Zmitrowicz (Three Girls and Mr Selfridge) though she'd have to either colour her hair or wear a wig. She's perhaps more like a prettier version of book Lysa than a younger version of Kate Dickie (I really like Kate Dickie) spindlemagazine.com/2014/05/interview-spindle-tv-meets-ria-zmitrovicz/

Well I know that's only 3 so far. Anyone have any ideas of other people who might be suitable or maybe more book/age appropriate? I will come back to this thread periodically [hopefully].

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, in all honesty I'm not sure but the suggestions are my own.
