GAME OF THRONES #10:Fire and Blood ACT 10 Chapter 1-2011--Season Ending

Well, the question I have is whether the actress slated to play Margaery looks a lot like the actor who plays Loras, since they were apparently supposed to resemble one another closely enough to be twins.

I'm not worried about Margaery's casting. She is a very small character in the book. Almost anything they do with her in the story will be their own invention. The biggest part she ever had I can recall is her dealings with Sansa. That was little more than girl talk.

Am I supposed to infer from this thread that different readers envisioned the most beautiful woman of Westeros differently? As if people have vastly different ideas of slam dunk gorgeousness?

Inconceivable!

Meh. I don't want to impose intentions on other posters, but I've been reading most comments as book description purists versus adaptational pragmatists.

I probably fall more on the pragmatist side of the scale personally.

Brienne of Tarth

It appears they have confirmation that Gwendoline Christie is going to play Brienne in Season 2.

Over at WiC, they also have reported a possible casting for Asha Greyjoy, with the interesting tidbit that they may have changed Asha to Yara.

This is who should play Margaery:

She is pretty spot on for how I pictured the character. Plus she can act!

very pretty - she could play any role calling for a stunning young beauty. Plus, she is closer in age to Margaery than Natalie Dormer.

(how about Betty White for Olenna Redwine - the Queen of Thorns - Margaery's grandmother?)

Betty White would have just the right amount of passive-aggressive snarkiness about her to play the Queen of Thorns, but I suspect it would reek of stunt casting, and wouldn't be necessary anyway, since I'm sure there are many others who could pull off the role quite well.

As for the actress playing Brienne, I think she's about right. She's not stunning, but still perhaps too good looking for how Brienne is described in the books. I wonder what lay behind the decision to change Asha's name.

From GRRM's blog:

"No, when she auditioned, she did not look she does in the photo above. She came in looking... well, like Brienne."

I hope they don't change her name. Seems unnecessary. I like the name Asha.
