Re-cast the actors!

Anyone else look at some of the actors in this and think they'd be great in something else?

For me, I'm thinking Maisie Williams who plays Arya could make a great Vin if they ever film Mistborn. If they put it into pre-production now, she'd be the right age by the time it started shooting!

Even without seeing an episode for season 2 yet, I wanted Mark Strong or Liam Cunningham for Stannis.

When I heard Liam Cunnigham was cast I just presumed he would be Stannis.

I'm unsure if he's done it before, but I think Sean Bean would be fairly decent as some kind of a sword wielding badass.

I dunno He's done Swords now, maybe something with Muskets, they could set it during the Napoleonic wars, that'd satisfy the Swordy people too

Cunningham is perfectly cast as Davos imo.

Alan Rickman as Stannis.

Brendan Gleeson as Varys.

A young Brian Blessed as Robert.

couldnt see Rickman as stanis, Stanis is a dour charmless and devoid of any real charisma IMO he's not an exciting or spirited character he's all about his sense of entitlement to the throne and some bizzare notion of duty and honour

Rickman has played too many interesting characters for that not to be on yer mind watching

Robert Carlyle as Roose Bolton would have been good.

A young Alan Rickman would have made a great Littlefinger.

At his current age, he'd make a great Mance Rayder.
