Great news! Peter Dinklage has been amazing in his role as Tyrion. He certainly has one of the most interesting character arcs of the series. Lena Headey has also been pretty remarkable as Cersei. I had to do a double-take when I first found that she was the same actress who played the Queen in 300
I've been re-watching the series these past few days on HBO On Demand, and it's remarkable just how much detail has been worked into the entire series. Perhaps it seems like it's getting a little more depth since I've started reading the novels and I notice that much more.
Looking forward to season 2, I have to wonder how the showrunners will handle some things. Will we get a name actor as Stannis Baratheon, for starters?
And in related news, Brienne
has been cast.
