Re: No actors named Bart that I could see playing a role in GoT
Damn! I hadn't known that.

Baker was one of the unsung heroes of I, CLAUDIUS. Derek Jacobi and Sian Phillips got an incredible amount of praise for their portrayals of Claudius and Livia, deservedly, while Brian Blessed and John Hurt were already well-established and well recognized, but I never felt Baker got nearly enough attention for his Tiberius... a thankless role, since the character was so unlikeable, but one that he performed brilliantly.

There's a lot of his Tiberius in my Stannis, fwiw.

Speaking of Stannis, I always pictured Ben Cross when reading. I figure some lazy recollection of Malagant from First Knight (an awful, awful film) is to blame, but the guy does have a hard ass look to him. And he's a pretty decent character actor.

Oh wow, I knew it! Specifcally I remember this part of Clash of Kings:

"Did he take my hand and say,
Well done, brother, whatever should I do without you?"

(at 1:35)

I had seen I,Claudius so many times that as I read Stannis' brooding in Clash of Kings above I immediately recalled that scene.
