Three for the Prologue

Spain
A GAME OF THRONES opens in the haunted forest north of the Wall, with three brothers of the Night's Watch on a ranging.

The viewpoint character is Will, sent to the Wall for poaching. In the pilot, he will portrayed by Bronson Webb.




He has been in projects with Tamzin Merchant, Nicholaj Coster-Waldau, and Iain Glen. One of his first roles was "boy on a bicycle." Peter Parker is Spider-Man and Bronson is a Webb, so they have spiders in common. And he has a home page, a Facebook page, and a My Space page.

Will's commander on the ranging is the young knight Ser Waymar Royce, a son of Bronze Yohn Royce, new to the Wall, clad in sable cloak. Playing Ser Waymar will be Jamie Campbell Bower.




JCB has an important role in the forthcoming HARRY POTTER movie, as a wizard from Dumbledore's past, and can also be seen the new TWILIGHT film. And of course it is the twilight zone that lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. He'll also be in the PRISONER remake, but as a number, not a free man. He was in SWEENEY TODD too, though I didn't include that in the clues. Didn't want to make it too easy.

The grizzled veteran Gared is the third member of the prologue's intrepid trio. His part will be played by Richard Ridings.



Ridings' previous credits include roles in RED DWARF, FAT FRIENDS, HIGHLANDER, and WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? and turns as characters named Roach and Daddy Pig.

LEAKED SCRIPT (minor story deviances that quirked me)
I really like how the script follows the book almost to the letter, seeing the Others in the prologue scene will be awesome.
HOWEVER: there were two items that irked me a little bit, the first one especially:

1) NED (To Jaime) "Was it justice you were thinking of when you stabbed your spear in the Mad King's back?"
Ummm, EXCUSE ME, but Jaime Lannister slit Aerys' throat with his golden gilded sword, not stabbed him in the back with a spear... come on, we're not talking about Janos Slynt here... I think that should be corrected for a certainty.

2) When Robert proposes Ned become Hand of the king, the script says
"You know the Saying..." "The King Shits, and the hand wipes."
In the books the saying is "The King Eats, The hand takes the shit."
although this is a minor detail, I still feel the way it is in the books is the better of the two.

anyone agree?
