Game of Thrones Cast SDCC 2014 Portraits by Entertainment Weekly (x)
Thanks! Yeah, it looks that way and it’s pretty disappointing. Arianne is not one of my absolute favorites or anything, but I hope it’s not true and they just haven’t cast her yet. It just flies in the face of Dornish customs to completely erase her and not to mention getting rid of a POV character for the sake of her brother who has like very little importance whatsoever… I get they can’t put everything in the show but POV CHARACTERS ARE POV CHARACTERS BECAUSE THEY ARE IMPORTANT… IT’S NOT GOOD. It makes me think of how they basically took all of Cat’s POV and gave that time to Robb. UGH.
The cast of the show IS phenomenal, I just hope the writers give them material that’s worthy of them.
Your English is just fine, don’t worry.
Game of Thrones: Season 4 Bloopers (Comic Con)
Lannisters don’t act like fools.
Alexander Siddig (most recently of Starz’s “Da Vinci’s Demons”) will play Doran Martell.
"Doran Martell is the ruling lord of Dorne and older brother to the late Prince Oberyn Martell. Unlike his brother, Doran is even-tempered and deliberate. Now, all of Dorne waits to see how their lord will react to his brother’s death," HBO said in a release, about the character.
Toby Sebastian will play Prince Doran’s son and heir, Trystane Martell. His father betrothed him to Myrcella Baratheon (Cersei and Jaime’s biological child, but thought of in the realm as Cersei and the late King Robert Baratheon’s daughter) as part of the alliance offered by Tywin Lannister, then Hand of the King.
Nell Tiger Free is now playing Myrcella Baratheon (she was previously played by Aimee Richardson). Myrcella has been a guest and ward of Prince Doran, betrothed to his son, but her position has become tenuous with the death of Oberyn Martell, the Prince’s brother.
DeObia Oparei has been cast as Areo Hotah, the long-serving captain of Doran Martell’s palace guard, renowned for his loyalty and his longaxe, per HBO.
Enzo Cilenti is playing Yezzan, an “extremely wealthy slave trader” before Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) outlawed the slave trade.
Jessica Henwick will join the cast as Nymeria (“Nym”) Sand. Nym Sand is the second eldest of the late Prince Oberyn’s bastard daughters. Her mother was an Eastern noblewoman who brought Nym up to be cultured, graceful and deadly with a whip.
Keisha Castle-Hughes (who is also in the new “Star Wars” film) is playing Obara Sand. “A fearsome warrior, Obara Sand is the eldest bastard daughter of the late Prince Oberyn Martell. Her mother was a Dornish peasant girl who caught the eye of the late Prince,” per HBO’s character description.
Jonathan Pryce (from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise) is playing the High Sparrow, who is described as, a “devout and pious man, the High Sparrow came to King’s Landing to serve those forgotten by much of the world – the poor, the downtrodden and the infirm – and quickly amassed a large following. His fellow believers have swarmed over the city, ministering to the lowest and decrying the corruption of the highest,” per HBO.
lbr d&d erased arianne because she was a female character who was the heiress of dorne, sexual positive, was a grown up woman who still isnt married, is beautiful and badass and of course we cant have that
because dorne is stupid when they let their oldest daughter be the heir. because there were already so many sand snakes and women its too much for our sexist viewers to take
because arianne has two younger brothers and what in the world would give her the right to be the heir and not them
Jaime Lannister was back on his feet, but his ornate lion helmet had been twisted around and dented in his fall, and now he could not get it off. The commons were hooting and pointing, the lords and ladies were trying to stifle their chuckles, and failing, and over it all Ned could hear King Robert laughing, louder than anyone. Finally they had to lead the Lion of Lannister off to a blacksmith, blind and stumbling.
my fave part of AGoT, ngl.
Does anyone else think that at this exact moment Tywin Lannister looked up from his breakfast at Casterly Rock as if he’d detected a disturbance in the force
“someone somewhere is laughing at a Lannister”
"Galladon drowned when I was four and he was eight, though, and Alysanne and Arianne died still in the cradle. I am the only child the gods let him keep. The freakish one, not fit to be a son or daughter." (A Feast for Crows, Brienne VI)
The position of the Hand of the King is quickly becoming Westeros’ equivalent to the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor.
