Selyse's part doesn't require any "running skills", though. Which would leave Val, Dalla or Meera Reed.

Speculation that the comment might just be the author not knowing the role, but seeing her cast in Game of Thrones thinking of that.

She is way too old for Val or Meera. Meera is 16.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

One of the posters on that page's blog mentions that
And I don't think she'll be a 45-year-old Meera Reed. I thought she was supposed to be closer to Bran's age (correction - 16). Tara Fitzgerald is 44 or 45, depending on who you talk to - much too old to be Meera. It was my impression that they wrote the Reed's out of the show anyway - they should have already been introduced by now for Bran's trip to the Wall.

Speculation that Natahlie Emmanuelle has also been cast based on who she is following on twitter (many GOT folks), and that she was in belfast, and she was riding horses

Sarah Bolger had a tweet stating she was also in Belfast, but that tweet is now missing.

It's been confirmed that the Reeds are among the new characters in season 3, so they aren't being written out, just introduced late.

Odd to have Myranda Royce in season 3; she doesn't appear in the books until late in A Feast for Crows. They might be using the name for a very different character. I see speculation that she's being merged with Mya Stone, but neither character would have much role in the next season's worth of story.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

It's worth noting that the producers said they're not going to just adapt book by book but the story as a whole. If they want to bring in stuff from A Feast For Crows earlier on to make things flow better then they'll do it.

Of course. But in this specific instance, the only possible material is a single scene of no particular narrative importance that depends on larger developments that certainly won't happen in this season. Considering the record of past name changes, I think it's more likely that "Myranda" is an ASOS character with a new name.

That may well depend on things like how much they use and change the Mereen/Astapor storylines, for example... given that Qarth employed a get-to-the-same-general-place-by-different-means technique they also used with Robb's marriage, one wonders how they're going to handle that in the show -- which might have a huge impact on how much time they have for other things.
