Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon), Alfie Allen (Theon) and Gemma Whelan (Yara) are on a true crime series called "White House Farm" on BBC at the moment (January 2020). I haven't watched it yet but the late king is playing a policeman - not sure about the erstwhile Greyjoys.
Mark Addy was great in “The Full Monty,” however long ago that was.

Not Mark Addy, but even further back in time, Roy Dotrice (the pyromancer with the pigsh*t) in a clip from a BBC TV series based on A P Herbert's "Misleading Cases" which ran in the late 1960s/early 1970s. It seems the originals of most of the episodes have been scrubbed (a pity in my opinion) though there are some audio extracts on YouTube. Frank Muir (a writer of humorous series on British TV back in the day often in partnership with Dennis Norden) introduces the clip (which is very short). https://youtu.be/uAQgWiNPpBw

According to redanianintelligence (which this site links to) Kristofer Hivju has been cast in The Witcher and there is a rumour (as yet unsubstantiated) that Natalie Dormer might have been cast in the same series.

Edit - scrub the info about Natalie Dormer because it has been denied - I wouldn't have minded her being cast because she is an actress with presence - and I refuse to watch the Penny Dreadful sequel even with her. On this laptop the browser is Microsoft Edge and although (after a year) I have managed to switch off the Microsoft "news" (or what masquerades as news on Microsoft) page for subsequent tabs it still pops up as my first page when I go on the internet. Anyway it says Jack Gleeson is making a "shock return" (talk about hyperbole) to TV. I can't copy the link sorry. I said before my halfway decent laptop was stolen towards the end of January and the one I'm using now definitely is not built for speed.

I mentioned on the main part of the site today that the Mother of Dragons and Ellaria Sand (Emilia and Indira) are appearing on stage in London in a production of Chekhof's (sp?) 'The Seagull'. I haven't been able to find a write-up of it yet. Of course at the time of making this entry (March 2020) there is a scare about the coronavirus with people being advised to avoid crowds so that could affect adversely a production of a play.
