    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. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series have no doubt noticed that HBO's Game of Thrones has taken some creative license when it comes to characters' appearances, so here's what your favorite Westerosians would look like if they more closely matched the author's imagination...

      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.

    Luana Mortmont souls have been the the true queen. I think I write in the story to be the one one rules. Those writes failed to write true writing. I mine. Luana Matrimony would be the true queen. Ask me how. Texting fast. Just me how I could have written the end story to make you cry and happy at the same time. Those writers failed at the end but I know I can finish it

You did your best, but yet you forgot or failed to know they And I were always invested I a a good lie that disappointed me at the end. I know I could have written the end story beautifully and with a bended knee to a true friend and queen

    You can only be so faithful to a source. If they tried to be accurate down to the T the characters would've been uglier and more cartoonish.

    I want to see a description for Renly Baratheon considering George RR Martin accidentally was inconsistent with describing Renly’s eye color. He first described his eyes as blue. He then described his eyes as green. When this mistake was noticed, Martin then described Renly as having blue-green eyes. 👀

  • HindsightPOV
    HindsightPOV 16 days ago

    Most people wouldn’t be fine with dyeing a little boy’s hair and making him wear colored contacts for something as trivial as hair and eye color made to match Wright’s character’s description in the books.
    Even if they did make Issac Hempstead Wright wear colored contacts, as a growing boy his eye shape would have been constantly changing so he would constantly have to be fitted for newly shaped contacts to fit his eyes. Hardly worth it and it could potentially hurt his eyes if he wore contacts that didn’t fit his eyes anymore.
    Wright said as the Three-Eyed Raven he couldn’t see without his glasses and he didn’t have contacts. If he didn’t get contacts just so he’d be able to see clearly for his acting scenes, wearing colored contacts would be out of the question.

    I think they did a good job with the cast. I just don’t get why Rob, Bran, and Rickon aren’t redheads. In the book they mention that all of Ned Stark’s kids have the look of a Tully except for Arya and Jon. Especially Rob, who they mention having auburn hair multiple times in book one.

    i don't think it's absolutely necessary to make the movie character look 100% the way they were described in the books, unless it's something that defines or shapes the character in some form (a scar, a disability, etc.)

    Sticking more closely to George RR Martin's books is not necessarily a good thing. The later books in the series saw a massive drop in quality. As bad as the way the series ended, it would have been much worse if GRRM was allowed to pen the whole series.

    Gwendolyn Christie is not a good looking woman--while not being coyote ugly like the char in the books, she's certainly not attractive on the level of Sophie, Natalie, Emilia, and some of the other knockouts on that show. Sell that rubbish somewhere else. She's at best plain, and at worst big and dyke-ie.
