I don't remember the High Sparrow... Is that a character from Dances with Dragons? I haven't finished that one yet.

The High Sparrow begins to appear in A Feast for Crows and takes on a larger role in A Dance With Dragons.

Dr. Basher!! 

I guess the Baratheon children (sans Joff) are changing actors.

They already changed Tommen.  And with Myrcella becoming a more important player given the shift towards Dorne, that cast change isn't unexpected either.

I'm almost expecting that if/when Rickon Stark comes back into play that another actor will be cast in that role, too.

The actor who was cast as the High Sparrow was JUST ON GoT last season in a totally different role though wasn't he? Doesn't that seem confusing?

Wasn't he the dude the Hound killed who proclaimed "Dying's thirsty work!"

No, that was another actor.  You'd probably recognize David Pryce from a variety of roles.

One thing I'm wondering is if the show going to follow the book chronology moving forward.  There had been some rumblings that the events of A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons might be merged to form as many as 3 seasons.  But I was checking out IMDB the other day, and Peter Dinklage isn't listed in the cast for Season 5 / Episode 1.  Hmmm....

My personal favorite was as a Rays ace pitcher.

SPOILERS AHEAD!!!

You've been warned. ;)


Season 5 Spoilers here.

I know it bugs some people, but I love it when they change stuff from the books, especially if it means we get more [spoiler] and to see him with our Mother of Dragons Khaleesi?  Awesome.

Also been reading a bit about the planned flashbacks that are coming in Season 5.  Interesting choice to go that route, but again it's a nice way to stall the main story to help spread the books out without losing certian characters for large chunks of the season. 

Deep down I'm hoping for a Ned/Lyanna/Tower of Joy flashback just to see Sean Bean again... but that might give away too much book plot if they showed us who/what was there.  :-X

Well, I guess I meant in the photo, seems like he would have been up there with her, but maybe not.

Seems like what is going to happen in the books anyway.

The water bottle being there is pretty funny. I hope they edit that out if it is an actual scene.
