Shireen Baratheon non-black hair.
Dear George, me and my several friends that watch Game Of Thrones every Sunday, have realized that in the show, Shireen has kind of blond hair, when we all know, thanks to Ned Stark's research at the beginning of the series, that "The seed is strong" and every Baratheon should or must be black of hair. Don't get me wrong, we are not saying it's a fatal mistake, but kind of contradicts the whole deduction that Ned has done when he was alive. I mean, Stannis knows this too, so why wouldn't he think Shireen could not be his daughter? I really don't remember if Shireen's hair colour is mentioned in the books, but I think it isn't, but it is kind of obvious.

So, we just wanted to know if that was a mistake that production has made or if it is an actual production decision the fact that she doesn't has carbon-black hair.

Thank you, and we love you.

PS: Sorry for the off-topic.

Re: Shireen Baratheon non-black hair.
LOL! Even Robert wasn't black of hair in the show, and you're quibbling about Shireen's? ;o)
(I kid, good catch! But are you suggesting Selyse is cheating on Stannis with her twin brother?!)

Back on topic:
Oh gosh, maybe I'll finally have to break down and get a facebook account. I've resisted so far, but Ice & Fire is the ultimate lure...

For the record, I enjoyed the RPG game for PS3, though admittedly I totally get how people coming to it primarily as gamers wouldn't be as into it as those who are mainly already Ice & Fire fans. It has a LOT of dialogue which gamers may not have the patience for. Us book people have already had to learn patience! :o)

Never tried the RTS, but sadly I didn't hear many good things about it. I still may pick it up at some point though - I'm basically locked in to an ever-growing collection of board/card/computer games, books, ebooks, comics, miniatures...

Re: Shireen Baratheon non-black hair.
There are a few ways to explain it. Shireen may not be Stannis's natural daughter. Shireen's disfiguring greyscale may have discolored her hair. I'm not bothered.

Re: Shireen Baratheon non-black hair.
Those are both theories we are discussing. Trust me, I'm not bothered either because of this, but some of my firends are (REALLY are). So I took my chance and asked George... It's just an inquietude.

BTW: Maybe in the show Robert wasn't THAT black of hair, but he was indeed dark of hair, not nearly blonde like Shireen. We even ruled out the posibility that "the Florent seed" may be stronger than Baratheon's because we know Edric Storm was son of Robert and Delena Florent...

Anyway, the show's still great, and I really think it is a Greyscale thing, such as you said priviously.
