Season 5 Game of Thrones Cast

By / July 25, 2014 / no comments

San Diego Comic Con led us to the revealing of Season 5 Game of Thrones cast.

While I am really excited about the coming season (it’s still a long wait), I don’t know if all the casting is right.

Myrcella looks too old, some of the sand snakes just don’t look tough enough and I wasn’t sure if Jonathan Pryce actually knew what part he had been cast for (though this casting does make sense).

Keisha Castle-Hughes is the most interesting cast in my opinion and it’s mostly because we are both from New Zealand. She got a lot of media attention and speculation from my corner of the world. Is she a good cast? Well she has the looks for a sand snake but I’m just not sure she has the acting prowess to play the toughest b**** in Dorne.

To focus on some positives, I think Areo Hotah looks badass, Alexander Siddig will look great as the “crippled” Doran Martell and although the sand snakes don’t look tough, the Red Viper didn’t look very tough either but he quickly became the “fan” favourite, so here’s hoping Benioff and Weiss do the same great job they did with Oberyn.

What do you think?
