Does the green dragon's actor feature when younger in this clip? https://youtu.be/fOYtqhcTljQ

Of course, I'm being silly here - someone had uploaded a mixture of footage from Quatermass and the Pit and The Clangers (I believe there has been a modern version of The Clangers - the dragon in the clip is of course the Soup Dragon, though whether this will sense to millennials I know not).

Deleted the bit about The Informer because it was wrong (see Grandmaester Flaesh's post below).

Further edited - to make up for my mistake - here is Patrick Malahide - and it really is him this time. https://youtu.be/paOlXJCdl6g He is playing Mr Jingle in Pickwick Papers.

I haven't seen this recent BBC show Informer so don't know if it is good or indifferent but Paddy Considine (Balon Greyjoy) is in it - looking very different to his GoT persona. https://youtu.be/3nh-j9jdJXY
Patrick Malahide played Balon Greyjoy. Paddy Considine has never been in GoT.

Quite right Grandmaester and I have amended my post accordingly.

Having made a faux pas with my Paddies, Tara Fitzgerald (Selyse) is one of a few stars talking about the forthcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie's The ABC Murderers. Her first appearance is at 0.20.

Mirri Maz Duur and her backing group sing an American murder ballad. She doesn't have a bad voice (in my opinion at least). How close she approximates to an American accent I have no idea. https://youtu.be/VZJ8ss-Sue0

Nice casting for ABC murders. I was a bit confused when I saw the name of Rupert Grint. Wasn't he the one playing Ron Weasley in Harry Potter? And the I saw the name of Hermione Clarke? Wasn't Hermione Ron's girlfriend? And then I saw the name Clarke. Oh isn't that Emilia's last name? And only after that I started listening to Tara Fitzegerald. I must say, she looks really convincing with this hair and make-up. I'm gonna watch it when it's on tv.

Chilli, maybe JK Rowling is an Agatha Christie fan and played tribute to her in a way. It's not a secret that GRRM has sometimes given his characters names from works he liked (Samwell Tarley's first name is similar to that of a character in LoTR for example).

It's very fleeting but Gilly appears in a trailer for a film from a few years ago Womb. She's only there for a short time at circa 1:20 with an ex-Dr Who actor and someone who is or may have been a celebrity crush for some of the male members of this site. https://youtu.be/KyPHHmdP0qs

Edited because my original comment was a little uncharitable about one of the parties.
