Wilko Johnson the guy who plays Ser Ilyn Payne was just diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. The character is not hugely important outside the 1st book although he does play a small role later on. I wonder if they recast the character or of they just write him off the show.

I think he actually becomes quite important down the line. That's really all I can say without spoilers. Don't want to tag them either just in case someone is browsing on their phone.

PM me if you want to continue the discussion, but I disagree that Payne's role is a 'small one.' I think they'll have no choice but to recast.

Back on topic however, that is really terrible news. Cancer is the ****ing worst.

I disagree, Payne's purpose could be served by another. Tongue or no tongue, it could be re-written easily.

For those that get annoyed by spoilers, why don't you just read the books? They are better than the show and make watching the show easier (much easier to keep track of everything).

Because I'd rather watch the show? I've had no problem to keep track of what's happening.

What if they don't want to read the books? This thread is for people who watch the show and I think those who read the books should respect that. If you want to discuss the books, go to the books thread.

Hey, just because you think reading books is popular, doesn't meant that actually is!

Ilyn Payne's character could not be re-written in the show for a character with a tongue unless they separate from the books in a huge way considering one storyline.

And I suppose I will leave it there for the sake of this thread. If you want to continue, PM me.

First season 3 photos released:

http://winteriscoming.net/2013/01/fi...ed/#more-22542

Mance looks better than I expected, but the one I think is Thoros is not what I had imagined...

edit: on second look, Meera looks good, Stannis' pictures is awesome, and the eyepatch guy should be Beric.

It does make it easier, but in some respects it kills enjoyment of the show a little. Just because you know what's coming. It was more fun for me during S1 when I didn't know what was going to happen.

I've heard good things about the guy who's playing Mance, so I'm sure he'll do a good job acting wise...but he still looks absolutely nothing like I imagine Mance. Thoros looks off to me as well.

Blackfish, Beric, Meera and Jojen all look good IMO. Love the room that Stannis and Melisandre are in.

Thoros looks exactly how pictured him, Beric and Blackfish too.

The Unsullied look underwhelming.

They look really bad ass in my head. 300esque. Oh well it's just one picture.

I imagined copper-colored armor but then again I rarely pay attention to details.

They looked almost like I imagined them.

Bearic looks pretty much the same as I invisioned him as well.

I was expecting Thoros to have red robes, much like the other red Priests/Preiestesses do.

Jorjen and Meera look exactly like I invisioned them.

Can't wait to see the other BWB's

Beric with his flaming sword. Can't wait for "that" part of the season.

In my mind the Unsullied all looked like the black guy from Stargate. Tealc I think his name was.

Strong Belwas in my mind was a jovial Michael Clarke Duncan.

Maybe I just have a thing for large black men...?

I saw a picture of Daario, he looks way too British. Daario in my mind is swarthy and Mediterranean

I think he looks a lot better in the actual garb, and I think his presence on the screen will complete the ensemble, so I'm not worried.

Beric Dondarrion is supposed to be 21 and young/handsome.The original Beric actually seemed a better fit.

Remember though that he is a Renegade now who has seen many stresses and battles. He also has to many battle wounds to count.

That will age a person dramatically. Maybe this is what the writers/producers are hoping for?

Never seen the pictures of Mance:




Looks cool and all but still too old.

I pictured Mance being more like young Gordon Lightfoot, you know, "his hair blondish and poetic".

That Mance looks as grim as the crows he's meant to counterpoint.

I don't know, but it sounds more like 300 set your expectations of what the unsullied should look like? Well maybe not as the equipment at least should look roughly the same and these guys look way different there. But considering that there were no hardcore ab workout routines in the middle ages and these guys are supposed to be eunuch's, the unsullied probably should look a little underwhelming.

I do both. I don't understand why it's so difficult to also read the books along with the show. I'm actually surprised that any real fan of the show WOULDN'T want to read the books. There is a lot more in the books that doesn't make it into the show.
