Scooped

Well, the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER has spoiled part of my fun. How can I properly torment my readers if they're going to go around printing the news?

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/television/news/e3icaec2feffc977edcd7939413cf46b0d9

Yes, it's true. Jennifer Ehle has been cast as Catelyn Stark.



Most of you will know her best from her portrayal of Elizabeth Bennet in the BBC's miniseries of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE in 1995, but she's got all sorts of other credits, she's won a BAFTA Award and two Tonys, and she will be a wonderful Catelyn.



Fortunately, even HOLLYWOOD REPORTER doesn't know all the cool stuff I know, so I will still be able to smile engimatically and drop sly hints in Montreal.

(I'll be good, I will, I will).

I'm off tomorrow. See you there.

Excellent casting again! My daughter is named after Catelyn Stark (mostly because my husband wouldn't agree to Arya!), so I'm glad they picked a great actress for her :)

Haha, I named one of my cats Arya. I wanted to name her brother Tyrion, but he's such an idiot that it would have been an insult to the real Tyrion.

Jennifer Ehle is gorgeous! It's good someone is printing it, because the male fans are getting rather antzy about wanting to know "where is the wimminz."

And Cersei and Jaime are...? C'mon, you know that's who we're waiting for. :)

I have it on good authority that Cersei and Jaime are being played by Teri Garr and Randy Quaid.

Oooh nice casting coup! She'll be fab and might even make me like Catelyn after all. Though she'll always be Cyn Powell (Lennon) in Backbeat first for me.

Great news!!!

She's lovely! And I'm sure she will make a great Catelyn. I was tempted to suggest Christopher Barry from "Lunatics: a Love Story" as a random red-headed Tully extra. But it's probably too late to put in suggestions. >-> Still, I'm excited about the casting so far!

I've gotten HBO for the past year just to be sure I didn't miss when it finally came together and got released! I'm SOOOOO looking forward to this series getting put onto television! I've been starving for good fantasy movies/shows for many, many years. Thanks so much for ALL of your effort!!

I have not heard of her, but she definitely looks the part. And if she's won a BAFTA then, she's obviously talented. I love that it is being filmed in the UK with UK talent. It fits the tone of your novels better.

Now if we can just get Angelina Jolie to play Cersei. (I'll make an exception to the UK thing for her.)

Can't really picture Angelina Jolie as Cercei. Tricia Helfer on the other hand...

Yay, that's awesome news! I'm getting a crossover squee here. I loved her so much in P&P and Oscar Wilde.

Now go and cast Tricia Helfer as Cersei.

This actually excites me most of all of the news I've heard. I'm so glad Catelyn has been cast with an actress who can present her as the complex character she is!

HBO Casting
Up to now, I am truly amazed. The casting is GREAT, with Ned Stark being of course the best of all and Jon Snow a close second (unknown he may be, but Harington looks exactly the way I pictured Jon in my mind). Now I see that HBO have picked a very good Catelyn. My only doubts is about "your" Joffrey. I saw a pic in the internet, and Jack Gleeson seems too sweet and too young for the part. Oh well, maybe it's an old pic. In any case, congrats!!!

Re: HBO Casting
I think a sweet and young appearance is great, provided he's able to pull off the utter bastardry in his personality...

Wow, the cast-list is really racking up some pretty impressive names! If this keeps up, the result is going to be awesome.

... Not that it wasn't already, but still.

David Anders should be Jaime. He does evil prettiness so well.
