wedding guest

Hiya, kids. Heh, heh, heh.

Olivier as Big Daddy? Well, no, but sort of. Dunk found him annoying. Harry had dealings with him, Jason with a namesake. He's done Dickens, Shakespeare, Thackeray, Chaucer, and Pratchett, and might have run into our dog as well.

I'm thinking someone who's played Laurence Olivier, and has worked with Harry Lloyd and possibly Rory McCann.

Played Olivier? Or shared a character with him? HMMM

Christopher Lee as Aemon or Aerys II?
Nov. 23rd, 2010 07:49 pm (UTC)
Lord Walder Frey?
Richard Briers?

Just a shot in the dark but:
David Warner as Walder Frey?

If not, that would still be really cool!

Re: Just a shot in the dark but:
David Warner always plus super-evil guys (and does them SO well) - Time after Time, Tron, Time Bandits (EVIL!). Walder Frey isn't evil as much as he is petty and proud. Dunno. :)

The folks at WiC are thinking David Bradley for The Late Lord Frey

I don't know if this is just wishful thinking on my part, but some of the clues fit -- I really hope you're talking about Derek Jacobi!

not related to this but...
just watched the new post on the weapons on the hbo site, and if Donal Noye hasn't been cast yet, I think Tommy Dunne would be perfect... :)


I've never been so giddy about a tv show before...!

Re: not related to this but...
Alas, Tommy is not an actor. And he has one arm too many. Aside from that, he'd be great.

Alas, alas, Donal Noye will not appear in the show. At least not in season one.

If it is David Bradley (the farmer with the sea mine in HOT FUZZ, which is where he appeared with Rory 'Sandor/YARP' McCann), that's a brilliant choice. I was thinking of him previously as Craster, but he'd be a great Walder Frey as well.

Was also in Harry Brown with our Jorah (although they didn't have any scenes together)

Great Movie: If Michael Caine was The Punisher.

I'm wondering if it's someone who has played Olivier in a movie somewhere (he's been a character many times, played by many actors).

Re:the wedding guest
Ah, super tricky. That's got to be David Bradley, not sure who else has been in a version of Vanity Fair and a Pratchett series (Color of Magic)...pretty clever not mentioning JK Rowling and Mr. Filch. Also, you are one of the few fantasy authors who can type in the same room with Terry Pratchett. For this, you deserve honor.
Nov. 23rd, 2010 08:36 pm (UTC)
It has to be David Bradley (Harry Lloyd played a character called JASON bradley in a tv movie called Vital Signs), plus all the aforementioned clues.
Nov. 23rd, 2010 08:41 pm (UTC)
Although I'd love it to see Pete Postlethwaite involved (the Jason clue had me thinking), I'm going with David Warner as well. Which would be great.
Nov. 23rd, 2010 08:52 pm (UTC)
I'll have to line up with the David Bradley line here... his trivia line on IMDB says:

"He was awarded the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 1991 (1990 season) for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for "King Lear" at the Royal National Theatre."

Now, "ran into our dog here" - that means he's run into the sandor clegane - which means he's been at Kings Landing...

Looking at him playing Finch... he sure looks a lot like... Ser Ilyn Payne.

How'd I do?
Nov. 23rd, 2010 08:52 pm (UTC)
..was my first choice, but none of the other clues matched up.

So perhaps it is David Bradley. We'll know soon enough I suppose.

Walder Frey at last. Here´s hoping we also get news for Roose Bolton and Podrick Payne for Season 1. :-)
Nov. 23rd, 2010 10:24 pm (UTC)
My guess is that they'll hold back Roose and Podrick until Season 2 for reasons of cost. Podrick they can introduce in S2 easily enough (maybe he gets assigned to Tyrion in King's Landing rather than earlier), whilst perhaps Roose Bolton and his troops show up a bit later. Bolton in particular is a great role for a bigger-name actor.
