Simon in Misfits was pretty multi-layered, which you don't really get to see until S2 and 3. And although his character would be COMPLETELY different from Ramsay, Iwan Rheon definitely proved that he can act on Misfits. That's the most important part, so I'm in favor of the casting.

That is, if "boy" is confirmed to be Ramsay.

It's one of the cool things in the books is that everything is from the characters POV, so being able to see him and know who he is and how they work around it will be cool.

Most likely probably just reveal who he is immediately though.

Season 3 has to be amazing. IT HAS TO BE. Just like the book(s). Yes, just like the books... I'm putting off reading AFFC just because ASOS was so good and I don't want to bathe in the experience some more.

My assumption is that they just won't say anything but won't make any serious attempt to really disguise him physically; as long as its apparent that Dany and Mormont don't recognize him, it works just as well.

ASOSJust give him a good long beard and a cloak and nobody will recognize him. I don't think people pay that much attention to Barristan Selmy. Atleast, whenever I'm reading, my mind goes to 0 and I don't speculate that much so often when something happens it comes at a complete surprise for me. Same for tv shows.

ASOS Probably would still be able to recognize him from hearing his voice though

For some I do, some I don't. I can't un-see the show version of Arya, Bronn, Sam and Jorah for example. Same with Tyrion, Joff, Varys, Ygritte, and to my surprise, also Barristan Selmy. He's described a bit differently in the book, but I always picture the show version now. Must've left a bigger impression than I thought.

Other strong candidates: Jaime, Jaqen and Robert

I cling to 'my version' for : Davos, Stannis, Mel, Jon, Cersei, Dany, Littlefinger and (biggest change) Renly and Roose Bolton. These two appear completely different in my mind, and I'd guess for others as well.

Maybe his acting will convince me otherwise, but the guy I see on screen is a far cry of what I picture Roose to be. The only casting choice that has disappointed me so far.

Same here, but for some I add some minor changes , like being a little younger, no beard, bigger breasts, things like that.

Well, Roose was in season two. Ramsay is likely being played by Iwan Rheon from the UK series Misfits. (Like Oona Chaplin last year, they have confirmed casting but not the characters name.)

ASOS I don't think that's an issue though. It will actually create some small tension as the audience will realize who he is, and will wonder if and when she'll find out and what she'll do when she does.

Yes, definitely do that, especially all the characters that appeared in the first season because I watched season 1 before I read any of the books.

ASOS Confirmed by GRRM that Ep 7 does not have the RW in it.

Most of the time, it doesn't stay constant for me, but I would say the television version is usually the default since I started with the show. There are certain characters that always stay the same though. I think it's hard for me to dream up different versions of Sansa, Bran, Arya. Cersei and Dany change around a lot in my head, especially Cersei. They are described as the most beautiful women in the world and it is hard for anyone to capture that. I like the image I just posted for Dany. Ned Stark will always be Sean Bean. All the Starks are from the show. I may be the only one but sometimes I see it as an animated show in my head, that is probably due to all the artwork out there.

I thought as much; the name wasn't used in ASOS though, so ASOS spoilers where she is called that might have to adjust their spoilers a bit ;)

For some characters, yes. The younger characters, besides Jon, I see in their TV form. When "stuff" happens to Dany, I have to see her as an older character.

Michelle MacLaren will be directing episodes 7 and 8.

Thanks to a head’s up from Maureen Ryan of the Huffington Post, we now know that director Michelle MacLaren—who’s won plaudits, and well-deserved ones, for her work as a producer and director on Breaking Bad—will be directing episodes 7 and 8 of the third season of Game of Thrones, and she’ll start lensing the series “soon”.

For those who may not recall, episode 7 is of particular interest since it’s George R.R. Martin‘s script contribution for the season, and we know the name of that episode already: “Autumn Storms”.

That means we now know the majority of what directors are directing which episodes, with Daniel Minahan directing episodes 1 and 2 and Nutter directing episodes 9 and 10. That leaves the episodes directed by Alik Sakharov, Alex Graves, and executive producers David Benioff & Dan Weiss up in the air. We do know Benioff and Weiss are directing only one episode, so that means either Sakharov or Graves is tackling two episodes.

Yeah, there really isn't anything weird about him except who he's traveling with and why he gets kicked out of the Citadel. Then he turns up the crazy in AFFC.

It's weaker than agot and ASOS, but it doesn't help that the show presented a rather poor adaptation of it.

I'm only three episodes into Season 2 but I'm enjoying it so far. Season 1 was pretty amazing (I just finished it days ago) so I guess S2 has a lot to live up to, but as soon as I go into this thread I see posts like "Season 2 was garbage" and the like. I hate when that happens.

Seems pretty good so far. Where does it go wrong for people? I'm just as invested in the story as ever.

Also, Peter Dinklage continues to be my favorite thing about the show.

(I haven't read and probably won't read the books)
