It looks like another familiar face will be joining Game of Thrones for season six.
According to the agency CV of British actor Richard E. Grant, the actor’s most recent television work is on Game of Thrones. A role is not listed, nor a specific director. No official casting announcement has been made, so this is a complete surprise.
An accomplished film and television performer, Grant recently starred in the series Dig and appeared in Downton Abbey, Doctor Who, and Girls. The actor rose to stardom in the modern classic Withnail & I, and has appeared in an eclectic variety of work since then, including Henry and June, L.A. Story, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Spice World, Gosford Park, and The Iron Lady. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. (Seriously, he’s in everything.)
Assuming the CV listing is accurate, who is Richard E. Grant playing? There are many roles left unfilled at this point, as HBO has not been hugely forthcoming about season 6 casting. We still don’t know who is playing Randyll Tarly, Aeron Greyjoy, the actors of the theatre troupe (from our casting breakdown list today), Lord Karstark or Smalljon Umber, and several more characters.
If the character casting descriptions are interpreted broadly as the show sometimes does, Grant could be any of the remaining roles. (Except Smalljon, and the Dothraki roles.)
Who do you think Grant will be playing in season 6?
The troupe leader perhaps.
Wait, the Damphair is confirmed to be in this season? I totally missed that.
Izembaro i think it was.
or an important maester.
He would make a great Elder Brother!
Great actor. Looking forward to seeing him, but I have no idea who he could be playing.
Hopefully we get some official confirmation and a character name from HBO soon.
This is AWESOME! I have loved his work over the years. I think he’ll either be a small impactful cameo or a pretty substantial role, but not in-between. He’s quite tall (6-2), so that’s something to keep in mind.
Withnail & I is my all-time favorite movie, and Grant gives one of the all-time great tragicomic performances as the alcoholic actor of the title.
So yeah, I’m thrilled with this news. But he’s a very specific type, so I have no idea what ho he’s playing. He seems completely wrong for Randyll and Aeron, so my guess is something with the acting troupe. Hope he’s used well!
I could see him as Marwyn perhaps. He doesn’t match physically but that’s hardly important
Was thinking this, too. He stands out in his acting. Even in “Age of Innocence” where he had a small role as a gossipy fellow, he just jumped out at you. Will be interesting to see where he ends up. As part of the theater troupe would be a good guess.
Lord God who drowned for us, let Damphair your servant be born again from the sea as you were.
With all this casting “leaks” I think it’s about time HBO releases an official casting video, can’t wait!!
Maybe Aeron Greyjoy? I think he may look the part with a wig, besides his face features do resemble somewhat those of the actor who plays Balon.
Anyway, great actor, great news!
With all the leaking from Ballintoy, I feel like if Grant was Aeron, we might’ve heard about it? He’s so recognizable.
He also would have made a good Littlefinger, come to think of it.
I’ll always remember him from How to get ahead in Advertising. Great film.
Maybe the new Karstark?
Izembaro, surely! 😀
Been a huge fan ever since “How to Get Ahead in Advertising”. He’s so good in so many things. I just hope whatever part he plays he gets some good screen time.
No casting video. Just the announcements for von Sydow, McShane, Asbæk and Stroma.
Yes, those were the only ones. In season 1 (and 2?)they officially annaunced every actor and their characters and now we have a great secrecy about anyone.
The casting just keeps getting better and better. 🙂
Richard E Grant…awesome,..he is a very talented Thespian with broad range, he has done action, comedy, and drama, including authoritative figures. I have more than likely watched him in over 30 films and shows.
My bets are on one of these two
Ser Meribald/Elder Brother…2/1
So, just out of curiostiy, do WotW periodically check every British actor’s CV to find if they are cast on GoT?
Great news, anyway. I would love him to be Aeron, but agree with Sue that people would know if he was filming the Kingsmoot scene. My second choice for him would be the Braavosi actor.
However, just as the article says, he could play anyone except Smalljon and Randyll (Surely Sam and Dickon’s dad can’t be so lean?). He could easily look wile(Karstark), crazy(Aeron or a priest), charismatic(the drama troupe) for any role provided in the casting calls.
Richard E. Grant is 58, for what it’s worth. That’s older than most of the major role age ranges (the Northern lords, e.g.). He is the right age for the Randyll Tarly character, and for the theatre troupe leader. I doubt he’ll be cast as the theatre troupe leader. They’re probably looking for someone who would be playing a Robert Baratheon type, and “larger than life” usually means either a jovial fat type or a Brian Blessed type.
From what I’ve seen of Richard E. Grant, it seems like he’s established a bit of a niche playing supremely bitchy characters. Even his Scarlet Pimpernel was surprisingly bitchy. If he is Randyll, his take on the character would likely be different from what book readers expect.
I agree and I think that’s his role, unless Ian Mcshane has been cast for that.
He’s 58 and far older than the age range sought (late 30s-40s) for that role. Still, unless there’s something about the Karstark role that requires that the character be in that age range, I don’t see why he couldn’t be cast in that role.
He can easly LOOK like someone in his 40’s
My first thought was Tarly, although that could be because I’m quite curious to know who will be playing him. No, a picture of him smiling doesn’t scream Tarly to me, but he does stern quite, quite well.
What I know for a certainty is, whatever role he’s playing, he’ll do a fantastic job. I love this guy!
Girona filming is continuing this week so perhaps he’s in the KL or Braavos storylines. Just a guess because so much casting this season has been announced last minute.
Can we have a post about all the actors casted at this moment and all the new roles, so let the speculation begin? 😀
Wow, GoT bringing out the big hitters for season 6!
Great choice for whatever role. He’s tall and lean and usually elegant and aristocratic. He could be Elder Brother, Damphair, maybe present-day Howland Reed (Grant is only a little older than Sean Bean), Maester Marwyn, the Braavosi lead Actor, maybe Rickon Stark in a flashback, an authoritative Essosi Red Priest like Benerro or Moqorro, another Faceless Man, a thin Wyman Manderly, and yes–Randall Tarly, though I don’t think Grant does brutal especially well. He could also be the Small Council replacement for Kevan or Pycelle if they’re killed off, the admiral whose fleet will confront Euron OR some role D&D have invented. He’s a versatile actor and could probably pull off any of those. Once he’s been on GoT, I’ll never watch Posh Nosh the same way.
I meant Rickard Stark. For some reason, lately I’ve had no way to edit my posts.
I could see him playing the rigid harsh Randyll Tarly…..http://files.zapster.it/zapster-media/multimedia/3700/3647/big/11.jpg
Stark Raven Rad,
WoTW has removed the edit function on comments. You aren’t the only one who wishes they did not.
My guess is he plays Ned in the play. Or maybe that’s too small a role for his calliber?
Could be Aeron I guess, especially if they’re going for the “man of the people” angle which seems to be the case in the casting call (unless that really was Meribald, which I doubt).
Wow, brilliant, what a surprise. Get Paul McGann in there and we’ll have a Withnail reunion 🙂
I liked Mr. Grant as a crazed coked-up, not-so-recovered addict on Girls. He can do a wild eyed warrior or a northern lord…seems like a great fit for GoT. Exciting!
I actually work with guy. He’s just another cock merchant. Oh, peddles the root as well
Well, he looks scarier in here. I can easily picture Sam peeing in his pants seeing this. There is even an antler trophy in the background!
But I still prefer someone with Ian McShane’s physique to play Randyll Tarly. Freddy Stroma and John Bradley-West are both bulky (in different ways), and Grant does not look that way, probably due to his height.
My first thought was Howland Reed. But then found out he’s 6’2″ tall. Probably too tall for a little cranogman.
Oh my… Great actor!!!
That part completely went over on me, ha, he was nuts in that, can’t wait to see his interpretation for the upcoming role.
Good solid casting there. He’s like this year’s AAA! Named actor for a relatively small part!
Io9’s headline for this news is hilarious, click the link and you should get a chuckle too.
Io9 Richard E Grant article
Wow. That’s some major casting right there! I really like the guy, though I can’t pin down what role he could possibly play.
I still believe Ian McShane will be Randyll Tarly, until they announce (showrunners) otherwise.
If someone told me this season we would have Ian McShane, Max von Sydow and Richard E. Grant, I would’ve laughed at their face. Last year I was surprised that they got a “high profile actor” such as Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and this year we’re getting the likes of McShane, von Sydow and Grant. Just… Wow.
He can play them all with make-up, wigs and costume changes.
Hehehe. True enough.
I dunno… I imagined Randyll as a “big strong man”, but maybe…? Or Aeron. Or a hitherto unknown role —maybe Marwyn, or a flashback character. He’d make a great Mad King, acting-wise, with some proper makeup!
Paul McGann? Love the idea of him in GoT. There’s got to be a role for him somewhere.
See? GoT hasn’t used up all of the UK’s actors, yet. 😀 There’s plenty more for us fans to fantasy cast onto this show.
That’s Randyll the fucking Mandyll Tarly right there. He’s the right age, he’s intense looking, and I think he’s too big of an actor to give a bit role to. Plus this comes within a few days of Dickon being cast and the report on Castell de Santa Florentina.
He’s a compelling actor. No particular casting option leaps out at me from looking at him, so we’ll see.
A few years back Grant was one of my suggestions for Aeron Greyjoy, but if he was Damphair I think we would have learned about it last week with all the leaks from Ballintoy. I personally always pictured Randyll Tarly as tall and lean, but maybe not that lean….
I think his look would make a fine Lord Karstark, especially if I compare him to John Stahl. There’s a decent resemblance there…. Enough to be related on GOT at least.
Perhaps Grant will be the outlaw leader Lachlan?
Perhaps the submissive Maester?
Gotdamn that’s a big ass whitehead right between his eyebrows pop that sh!t
Such as shame they wasted AAA on a random pirate dude with like two scenes, when he would have made an awesome Moqorro. Ah well.
Happy we’re getting another high profile actor! Really incredible. We had Rigg in S3, Pryce in S5, and now we have three unbelievably “large” actors joining. I just wanna know who they’re playing, dammit!
Well we know about one of the three, at least.
As long as he calls someone a terrible cunt I don’t mind who he plays.
I wouldn’t say that with certainty. Perhaps he was just nearly unrecognisable in costume with the wig.
At the Kingsmoot scenes filmed there were definetly a drowned priest, and I think there was an other source telling that Aeron is in season 6
(plus in my opinion, the priest description casting call fits Aeron Greyjoy (gruff ex-soldier who found religion) more then septon Meribald)
I think Tarly as well. All they need to do is cast a short, plump mother and that covers the physical shapes of Sam and Dickon. Tarly is such a nasty bastard, Grant would be great!
Yeah I knew that 😉
Would guess he’s that Septon looking after Gravedigger, that requires a good actor
No guarantee we would have learned about his role last week, but the timing makes me think it is a role filming now or very soon. Just a feeling.
I think Aeron will be a bit role though and Richard E Grant is a fairly big named actor. I would think his role may be more important than Damphair.
Honestly the first role that leaps to mind for me is Randyll Tarly. Even if he does not usually play the “heavy” role like Tarly, I think Grant would do a great job. He will do a great job in any role though! XD
Hoyti Von Totiy,
Yes, he’s got my vote for that one. I”m picturing some burlier guys for the Northern Lords or for Randyll Tarly.
Some of those Grant gifs are hilarious, too. Wish we could post gifs here. #notcomplaining
My money is that McShane plays a character that hasn’t been introduced yet (WINDS), or one that is heavily spoiler-ish. If he were Randyll, they likely would’ve just announced it, instead of all this secrecy.
I really don’t understand why so many people think Aeron’s a small role/ bit part. If the role really was that small (just for the KM), why bother making him Aeron? It seems a waste to not integrate him in the Iron Islands story now that they’ve decided to include him.
Hmm well he could be the troupe leader. His acting repertoire might even be better suited to that role.
I’ll hedge my bets on who’s he playing… but I sure would like to know who’s playing Randyll the Mandyll soon.
Can someone PLEASE tell me who is playing Victarion Greyjoy????!!!! Or rumored
“Leading Theatre Character Actor. The leading actor in a theatrical company, around 50 years old. He participates in a play using a pronounced Northern accent, and we see him behind the scenes in seedy touring dressing rooms. He’s a flamboyant caricaturist. He appears in three episodes and he also films this week in Spain and again around November 6th in N. Ireland.”
I think that’s him 🙂
Tywin of the Hill,
Nah. He should play someone significant like Diana Rigg is Olenna and Jonathan Pryce is the High Sparrow.
Aeron could do something in the upcoming books that makes him more important to the larger narrative I guess….
I just do not see many scenes of importance for his character. Basically he could be introduced after Balon dies, worry about Euron ruining the Ironborn, and call for a Kingsmoot, run the Kingsmoot… All of that could take place in a handful of scenes, some of which where Aeron is not even the focus of the scene. From what I recall Aeron goes into hiding after that. And if we leave the Iron Islands after the Kingsmoot would we even need to go back?
GOT casts minor named roles every year. Some only have one or two scenes. I don’t think naming his character means much if anything. To me that is a minor character comparatively speaking. He has a role to play to be sure, but the role could have been a featured extra with little or no change to the narrative honestly.
Almost certainly cut.
I think he will be playing the new Lord Karstark…
My money’s on McShane.
Oddly I had not connected Richard E Grant’s casting and the news about the theater troop. He would make a fine Actor/ Manager!
Unrelated to that role…
I’m actually a bit surprised how many people picture Tarly as a big muscular guy. I know it was stated at least 2 or 3 times in the books that he was lean and/ or narrow. I always thought Samwell was supposed to be Randyll’s physical opposite, round and fat compared to stick straight and lean. Maybe just me….
You`re On Greyjoy,
I don’t think so; he doesnt look like him at all;-)
Tyrion’s nose hole,
That was the way of this cruel world where men dug in the ground and died, and women brought fourth stillborn babes in beds of blood and pain – gotta love The Damphairs bleak worldview. I am so stoked he’s in
Well, they also kept Euron’s actor a secret for a very long time. We didn’t find out until they’re already filming his scenes. Was it really necessary?
Leave the context of the books behind, dude. Obviously they waited with the KM in order to combine it with something important (possibly from TWOW) in one season for actual impact of the Ironborn characters.
At this point in the series, whenever a named characters is cast, you can bet it is to make an impact. Regardless of what the character has done so far in the books.
Scratch the “almost”
HBO only confirmed Euron 24 hours AFTER Sue had broken the story and other outlets had picked it up. No one can say for sure, but if Sue hadn’t scooped them, HBO might have just kept that whole thing secret.
Geez, I go away camping for a week and we get Euron, Damphair, Smalljon and like 20 other guys and awesome actors for them!
Word on the street, i.e. informed speculation by people who have read the books far longer and far closer than I, is that Damphair’s story purpose is to summon/throw a Kraken at something; which, if true, would be a totally awesome scene, totally worthy of including his character in the show just for that, and would be a viewer generating moment. I think it’s one of those lesser Cleganebowl (*Ahem, GET FUCKING HYPE) rumors, but its one like that that kinda makes sense.
Euron is in because his purpose in the story is to be a pirate badass and attack The Reach/Oldtown, where Sam is, and hopefully soon Loras too (please let him actually fight and show his badassness, I have hope!).
If Aeron’s role is to summon a Kraken, then its worth casting him.
Victarion on the other hand took like ten chapters to deliver 72ish some odd ships to Dany, and probably die to Barristan. Like Barristan, I don’t expect him to see the back 80% of TWOW, probably with him and Barristan killing each other. Unlike Barristan, I really don’t think its worth casting someone whose real entire role was filled by an offhand line two seasons back. If someone needs to use a horn, no reason Euron, Theon, Asha/Yara, or even Damphair couldn’t do that. My money’s on either Victarion getting combined with Aeron/any other Greyjoy, or him having died in the Greyjoy rebellion years back for the show.
But if the Damphair does have the role in TWOW that I’d guess he does, than Richard E. Grant is totally big enough to fill those shoes, and the role would absolutely be worthy of his caliber.
Seriously, he’d make an awesome Damphair!!!
The guys on GOO suggested McShane for the Mad King, and the more I think about it, the more I think they’re right.
That role would have tremendous impact on the story, likely be small yet demand a Name, and demand that it largely be filmed in secrecy.
Honestly, most of the roles filmed almost entirely in the Belfast studio are the ones that confound us most. IIRC, we didn’t have absolute confirmation about David Bradley’s return back in Season 3 until very late, if not even the episode itself, because all his scenes were filmed entirely in the studio.
I expect the case would be similar with McShane if he is playing the Mad King.
Would certainly explain why nobody’s run into him/seen who he’s playing yet.
Is he the farmer?
“Stop saying that Withnail, of course he’s the fucking farmer!”
No, it isn’t just you. I, too, imagined Tarly rather slim, and remember him being described as such (I’m not sure of the exact word(s), but it gave me the impression of slim) in the books. Yes, I know this is the show, but still, if it turns out Grant is playing Tarly, or another slim actor, it would be in keeping with his book description.
this is true. I’m another
I think he would make a great Damphair as well…
I’ve heard that street murmur of kraken- calling… I think that could make for an awesome scene indeed! Like I wrote above, if Aeron does something important to the narrative in the upcoming books I could see it becoming a bigger role (still not big) and that kraken scene would certainly make the role worth casting. Although, unless that kraken were to bring down Dany’s ships I’m not certain how important that scene would be regardless of how awesome it looked on screen! XD
I disagree with that premise completely. Naming a role on the show does not equate to that character being important or a large role in any way. Lachlan is a new named role, will he be a major player? Of course not. I am not even ruling out Damphair becoming a bigger role, but I do not think we can judge anything from a role being a named role on the series. Agree to disagree.
Am I the only one who’s never heard of this guy…?
Oh well, he definitely has a look that could fit several characters. I’ll be interested to see who he’s playing.
With a wig, he would be a great Mad King 😀
I suggested awhile back that he could be the Mad King, but a few people here seem to think that the MK is rather irrelevant since we pretty much know everything there is to know about him that’s relevant to the current story. But he would make a towering Mad King.
Holy shit! This is unreal. Fantastic actor, can only hope his role requires some droll comedy!
Let me clarify. Obviously I’m not talking about the new minor parts like Lachlan’s. Those will always exist and have zero impact. I’m talking about characters from the books that haven’t yet been introduced in the show but that we know exist and (will) play a role (similar: Euron, Randyll) in the books (I’m not saying “big”, but not “a bit part”). And with Aeron we’re talking about a POV character here, so I’m convinced he’ll have more to do than just a couple of scenes.
He can be anyone… I think he can be Aeron, Randyll, Some guy in the Theater, some red priest…..and do a AMAZING job.
I dont think he is lord Umber or Karstark because he´s too old for a heir of Richard Karstark and Greatjon Umber. But just for his age…
Even if you haven’t heard of him, you’ve probably seen him. Unless you really don’t watch movies or TV.
saw this on his cv earlier, tweeted and emailed wotw. nice of them to acknowledge..
1. You didn’t email us. I double-checked just now. We haven’t received anything from you, there’s nothing in Spam, anything like that.
2. You didn’t tweet that at us.
I found the listing on my own. I check agency listings at least twice a week, usually more in a busy casting time like this. I could rattle off by memory a list of all the agencies I regularly check. It’s time-consuming but it pays off. And I have no problem sharing or giving credit, as you can see in the newest post, where we H/T Carne for the Ross Anderson casting.
I would pay good money to hear him deliver Septon Maribald’s monologue.
Its interesting that for Grant people seem to be throwing out every role that isn’t nailed to the floor at the moment, unlike in previous casting leaks where only a few roles get suggested over and over.
Sue the Fury,
I 100% did, using the form on your site, v soon after that tweet (I pasted a link to it in the msg).
fair enough if you found it on your own, just seems very coincidental!
I was feeling generous. Good decision by D&D.
Absolutely. My show-only friends sometimes ask “what’s the point of having this character on the show” and I would have A LOT of trouble finding decent arguments in this case.
What about Jon Connington?
It’s really not, since I checked ARG a couple days ago and the entry wasn’t there. Which means they probably just put it up yesterday or today. It’s one of my regular sites to check.
He will be reprising his epic role as Withnail. It is known. One of the best films!
Casting Jon Connington at this point would be like casting Jeyne Poole or Harys Swyft.
Gone. 0% chance. You’ll have to wait for TWOW. It’s the only storyline from the books not included in some way.
The troupe director would be an easier role for Grant – more typical for him. But he’s interesting in serious, dramatic roles so I hope for Tarly.
Or maybe, early in the next season, we got an surprising invasion 🙂
Or maybe, early in the next season, we got an surprising invasion 🙂
Richard Grant great actor, does creepy scary character very well. Oh this gets better and better with the actors they are getting.
No, you definitely are not the only one. But, clearly, we should have.
My point is: why introduce a character that has been clearly been absorbed already by another character? In this case, Jorah. Just like Sansa has absorbed Jeyne Poole and Mace has absorbed Harys Swyft.
I believe he will appear in the Theatre Troupe as strong, theatrical performances are his forté.
My ideal casting would be in Bran- Mad King flashback. Purple contact lenses, a silver wig and an actor with Grant’s capabilities would be astonishing onscreen. Some say this story has been told and likely not to expand but I believe there are many more aspects to the Mad King’s history to behold.
I couldn’t have told you his name, but I recognized his face immediately, and thought, “oooo, I love that guy.”
H could be a brilliant Mad King!
He fits the physical image I have of Aerys far more than Ian McShane does (Although I think McShane would be fun as Aerys).
I keep wondering if Aerys flashbacks are necessary though..
Any number of Mad King scenes could be fun to see on screen, but I’m not sure we need to see Rickard Stark killed or Jaime kill Aerys etc…
a flashback scene could add intrigue and be important…
I think Theatre Manager, Randyll Tarly, Lord Karstak, or even Damphair is more likely right now, but who knows! I’m looking forward to finding out!
I think you spelled ‘Jorah Mormont’ wrong. 😉
The character has still a very important mission, to put certain young king on the throne. That is not in Jorahs character.
I think it could be a possibility.
Mad King flashback would not be necessary (so many other storylines to develop) but would make for cinematic success: insight into Dany’s depth of character/regal aptitude, Bran placing all of the pieces in the puzzle.
Dude, be nice. No need for name calling.
Nothing wrong with adding more class to the cast.
I can’t see him as Randyll, that would be an odd choice IMO. Aeron hmm maybe, I don’t really care for that character so casting someone like Richard would perhaps be beneficial for me. Marwyn would be a good fit, I could definitely see him in that role. Either way I just hope he’s utilized right and isn’t wasted like Ciaran Hinds was.
I agree, McShane would be a phenomenal Mad King. Speaking of flashbacks:
Sue the Fury,
I’m sorry. I must have typed the spoiler tags incorrectly, could you please place within spoilers my second paragraph. Thank you.
I don’t think spoiler coding (or the edit function) are working right now at WotW. They are working on fixing it last I heard…
Did you see the post previous to this one? ….http://watchersonthewall.com/game-of-thrones-casting-a-theater-troupe-and-more/#more-44458
Young Stunner. Aged 18 – 20. A stunner of a brunette. She has a couple of scenes, and a great final scene where there is a major twist. This role shot the week of August 5th in Belfast.
At first I thought this was Mercy from the WoW chapter, until I saw that the part she plays has already been shot…….hmmmmmm?
Replace Jon Connington with Jorah and Young Griff/Aegon with Daenerys and here we are. No need for them.
Gatsby. We moved to a new server and editing and spoliers aren’t working. Oz is trying to get it fixed.
Jorah is working to put a young claimant on the throne, just a girl instead of a boy. Casting JonCon when Jorah has already taken over a significant part of his role, contracting greyscale, would be a terrible and pointless move and I would hope the writers wouldn’t do that.
Richard E Grant? In Game of Thrones? The two just seem completely incompatible in my mind for some reason! But I am excited nonetheless, I think he’s a great actor and in Nina we trust etc.
I am CERTAIN he is one of the roles from the previous post, probably the Theatre Manager – “The larger-than-life leader of a troupe of actors. He specializes in portraying drunken aristocrats” – so like Withnail then?
I didn’t. Ignorant doesn’t mean stupid. The dictionary says:
“Having the lack of knowledge, or background/factual information of a particular thing in general. However, the effect in which this person will be proceeding with their “unproven knowledge” imbedded in their mind as if factual information, they, in turn, will plan on using it in the future to make false and incorrect statements based on what they didn’t know about the particular thing”.
In other words, exactly what’s happening here.
He has the height and bearing to play Tytos Blackwood.
I could totally see grant as one of two rolls.
1) he could easily do the hammy leader of an acting troupe and would have a lot of fun with it.
2) he could also do a flashback Aerys if that’s what they want to do. Throw a blonde wig on him and he looks pretty targ and he does play a mentalist very well.
I think everyone is overlooking Grant’s magnum opus…… SPICE WORLD!!!! 🙂
It was being used in that post as an insult. Everyone just be civil to each other.
That was the way of this cruel world. A man must fight to live. I must be as strong and tireless as the sea.
Well, we should know soon which character he might play, his CV page wouldn’t have released the news unless filming was approaching soon. Horn hill scenes film this Friday thru Monday and the theatre troupe is late this week through the end of the following week. Mr Grant also has a Twitter account which he posts to regularly, so we should know when he flies too and arrives in Spain.
I’m more interested in the final week of September, nervously anticipating news of Sean Bean flying to Spain.
‘We want the finest wines in the country. We want them here and we want them NOW!’
He would be best suited in the acting troupe I think. He would be great as Izembaro, or the lead actor in his 50s. Someone really gave Nina a blank check this year, and I love it!
Isn’t it obvious? Young Tywin in a flashback!
Hoyti Von Totiy,
Hoyti Von Totiy,
Agree! he looks like Howland Reed to me.
I suspect that as with Euron’s actor, the news as to Grant’s specific role will come out when he films, if at all. I’m very excited, though.
I’m calling it: Mad King in a flashback.
Either that or Howland Reed as someone said above.
Makes sense to cast such a well known face in a pivotal role.
Howland Reed is that you!??!?!?!?
Maybe he is playing Ser Gerold Hightower
Hoyti Von Totiy,
definitely Howland Reed
Hoyti Von Totiy,
He can do mad/crazy like nobody’s business, if they ever do a flash back to the Mad King he would be great. However, I think he will be Damphair – weird, zealot he can do well
Whoa, guy is brilliant. Oh, just have him reprise Withnail. idk how, idk why, but please.
Haldon halfmaester, for sure.
He’ll play Myranda’s father, the kennel master.
Richard Grant is a versatile actor, I can see him in any role, except for Howland Reed – and this only because of his height.
Necessary or not, I’d love to see flashbacks about Mad King Aerys and, even more, about the love affair between Lyanna and a certain married prince.
GoT is no longer listed on his CV page. Maybe HBO asked it to be removed. Excessive secrecy?
Who is the crown in the north? Is there another another name for arya?
