  1. Hello, I've a Blog about Game Of Thrones in portuguese. I'm from Brazil. Could I translate this text from your blog? I'll public this content in my blog with credits. Pleaze. I'm very excited about the series and I can't wait for that! Your blog is very cool!
    Anyawy thank you!

  2. Thanks!

  3. Nice work, good to see it all in one place. Thanks. (I came over from sffworld)

  4. Only actor I'm iffy about is Conan Stevens. Sure he's (almost) tall like the Mountain but he looks more goofy then menacing. You better do the role justice Stevens!

  5. Crow, I'm gonna assume you're joking about Conan Stevens. Just watch his showreel. If you're still concerned, I would say the problem isn't with Conan....

  6. Hey Lex,
    It would be great if you can replace some of the cast photos with anybody who was shown in the HBO behind-the-scene video (i.e. Bran, Cercei, Viserys, Robb, Jorah, Theon, Littlefinger, Varys, Grenn, etc.).


  7. I will try to replace the the actors' headshots with images from the show as we get them, but I want to maintain a certain level of quality. The only image we have of Varys so far, for example, is of very poor quality. But I'll see what I can do.

  8. this is a very impressive list, indeed :)
    I can't wait for the show !

  9. Hi,
    Maybe you can have multiple pix of the actors. The thing is if I want to see a standard headshot of the actors, I can find it elsewhere such as winter is But it would be great to see screen captures of what the characters are actually going to look like.

  10. Thanks for replacing some of the pix (i.e. Cercei, Viserys, Bronn). Much better idea of what the characters will look like now.

  11. Whytespyder,

    They don't appear until book 2, so they won't be cast until Season 2.

  12. I went through the whole list eagerly looking for my favorite character, but he wasn't there!! How could they have forgotten Dolorous Ed? I can only imagine what Ed would have had to say about it... Anyway, my vote would have been for Clive Owen, although William H. Macy might be a more obvious choice.

  13. For the Seven's sake, IF THEY WEREN'T IN THE FIRST BOOK THEY'RE NOT IN THE FIRST SEASON. There are a couple of exceptions, Lommy Greenhands and Hot Pie, for example, but the first season primarily consists of the first book. Please stop asking where Jojen, Meera, Dolorous Edd, Stannis, Brienne, etc. are. THEY WILL SHOW UP NEXT SEASON, NOT BEFORE.

  14. Did you know that Margaret John, who did the brilliant job playing Old Nan in "Lord Snow" died February 2? She was 84.

  15. Just found this page and it is great. I have been looking for something like this since the show was annouced a year ago. Is this updated as new images of the characters are available.Such as, both Gren and PYP were in the latested episode but there actor pictures are still headshot rather than show images.

  16. This comment has been removed by the author.

  17. I wanna know who's gonna be Ygritte!!

  18. Any idea who played Heward or Wyl in episode 5. (Also you forgot Mikken - Boyd Rankin)

  19. Thanks to you for putting them all in one place! it is hard to get the cast straight with so many characters! and with the shows being only once a week, by the time you get them all down in your head, you don't see them again! Great job, and thank you for staying true to the series and not giving spoilers! I am incredibly satisfied with teh way the series sticks to the actual dialog of the books! And I think the castings have been fabulous! I particularly like Tyreon...his character has more class than all the others of his family!

  20. It's really an amazing article. It is always nice when you read
    some thing that is informative & interesting. Excellent work.
    Keep it up!

  22. A large number of them are searching for free psn codes as they don't have cash to purchase them from

  23. My most favorite character by far is Daenerys, I also like Arya because she seems smart and able to help herself. Another one would be Tyrion.. He seemed to be the nicest Lannister in all of Westeros.

  24. Can you do the same article for the filming locations?

  25. Thanks for share i really like this collections keep it up..i like share too:)
