I still feel like Rickon's sole reason for existing is to be the next Stark in Winterfell, but that's probably too simple.

Nice that the original actor has been brought back. With Myrcella and Tommem having been recast, it wouldn't have surprised me if they'd brought in a new Rickon too.

^The quoted article was about potential filming for season 4, which Rickon obviously wasn't part of. (It turned out Parkinson's tweet was about his role in the Northern Ireland-filmed Dracula Untold, which also features Charles Dance and J. J. Murphy.) So we still don't know if Rickon will return in the show, or who might play him.

I too suspect Rickon might end up as the Stark in Winterfell. Certainly he has some narrative role to play, or he wouldn't exist in the first place.

So they're looking for a 5 month old baby for the new series. I wonder if this to recast Gilly's baby or will Mance's child come into play?

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

Hodor actor Kristian Nairan said in a recent interview that ""We have a season off and we have a year's hiatus, solely because I imagine our storyline is up to the end of the books." Which has naturally led to a lot of discussion about whether "we" includes Isaac Hempstead-Wright as Bran, or perhaps just Nairn and Ellie Kendrick. Entertainment Weekly is going for the attention-getting headline by assuming the former.

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

I've seen it reported almost as fact that neither Bran nor Hodor will appear but perusal of Nairn's words do suggest that it was slightly lazy wording on his part and that it's probably his character and maybe Meera they're referring to.

Obviously they're almost bang up to date with Bran in the books so I'd expect his role to be short next season but if they could include Alfie Allen for 2 seasons when his character would've been mostly absent from the book equivalent, I'd be surprised if Isaac Hampstead was completely omitted.

Too lazy to link but I see it looks like Cersei's walk of shame is to be filmed though I wonder if Lena Headey will go naked or have a body double.

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

A shame if Bran won't be in it next season. I would have thought that we would have at least see him get "plugged in" to 3EC's tree/raven network and start seeing different expositions from his POV, including flashbacks that would have shown us Ned Stark's small return. Since magic should be shown as re-entering this world, would it not make sense to start showing it with greater frequency? Still hoping to someday see how/if they show dragon glass candles in the Citadel once Sam gets there.

Lena's done nudity before in her film career, including full frontal.

I guess we'll find out.

James Hibberd at Entertainment Weekly is closer to the production than any other journalist, and he said on Twitter that there was no Bran in season 5. Even with the caveat in the article itself, I really don't think he would be that definitive if he wasn't sure about it.

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

How awesome would it be to build up the season with Bran's visions capped off by him watching Ned find Lyanna dying with a baby in her arms right after we watch Jon Snow stabbed (to death?) by his brothers.

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

Here's an interview with Isaac Hempstead-Wright from Comic-con, where he was promoting his fantastic stop-motion film The Boxtrolls. At first listen, he seems to be confirming his appearance in S5 in GOT but if one wanted to, one could say that his answers are a little vague and coy in relation to the current season. He never actually says when he's going back to start it or talks about what he's going to be doing. Perhaps I'm reading too much into it.

GOT stuff is about 5 mins in. And whaddya mean Norn Iron isn't exotic, Isaac?!

Looks like Wilko Johnson (aka Ilyn Payne) has been saved by the Seven Gods.
