    When it comes to book-to-screen properties, the more popular the literary source material becomes, the tougher it'll be to satisfy readers' imaginations of how characters look in the screen adaptation. Readers of George R.R.

      @Michael Uy Obviously, the narrator keeps saying "should've" because he likes abbreviating. After all, every comparison tells how the characters should have looked had they made to look like they do in the original story.

      Rob Stark didn't have a clean shaven face. He has whiskers growing when his father is arrested. READ THE BOOKS!! plus he had the red hair of the Tully's like Bran.

    With Bran, the actor was 11 when the show started. So while it's not accurate to the books, they most likely didn't want to die his hair and even grown actors have trouble with contacts. And even as he got older, it would just be plain odd for him to all of a sudden change hair and eye color in the show. Also, it is tough to fake a missing ear of a person that appears very often.

    Also, I think I speak for all fans, of any series, that we would rather have GOOD actors who can accurately portray various characters but don't entirely look like them, rather than actors who look EXACTLY like the characters but aren't able to portray them at all.

    Honestly even after seeing what they were “supposed” to look like, the only thing I really wish they had kept were the purple eyes of Daenerys and Viserys.

    They tried doing purple contacts, but they made it too hard to see, so decided against it.

    In " A Game Of Thrones" this is how Robb and Jon are described " The deserted died bravely," Robb said. He was big and broad and growing every day, with his mother's coloring, the FAIR skin , red-brown hair and blue eyes of theTullys of Riverrun." " Jons eyes were a grey so dark that they seemed almost black, but there was little they did not see. He was of an age with Robb, but they did not look alike. Jon was slender where Robb was muscular, DARK where Robb was FAIR, graceful and quick where his half brother was strong and fast." Jon snow is described as being dark where Robb is described as being fair yet Jon doesn't look dark at all.

    The older age of the characters in the show vs. the books was intentional by GRRM. When he first started the books he intended for a 5 year time skip to happen, but then realized he would have to write too many flashback scenes to make up for it. For that reason he started the characters at a young age, intending to make them older but then wasn't able too. In the show, he wanted all the characters to start off older so it was more believable that someone like Jon Snow could be the Night Commander in his early 20's vs being about 17 at that point in the books.

    Some things will never transfer from a book to the screen well. Barriston the Bold, in the books, is described as a man with a long white beard name "White Bread' later in the books. Since the reader can't actually "see" him it becomes a surprise when you find out it was Barriston the Bold the whole time. It would never work in a TV show because as soon as you see the actors face you would know it's the same guy. Additionally, in real life, actors have contracts that won't allow them to make certain changes to their hair so they can still play other roles. Which is why in Superman v. Batman Henry Cavill had to keep his mustache and have it removed with CGI. A lot of these actors aren't going to shave there heads for a couple of months of filming and now have short hair for the rest of the year. Especially characters who are in 1 or 2 episodes and only filmed their parts for 1 week.

    Robb Stark’s hair is quite auburn through, it’s just the filtering and brightness just kinda tones it down.
