No, I don't think the Davos actor would work as Stannis. Remember that Robert was the eldest brother. Not Stannis. Stannis is not as old as one tends to imagine with the unflattering descriptions in the book.
Liam Cunningham and Mark Addy are only two years apart in age, so Cunningham playing a slightly younger brother (although he's two years older than Addy in real life) wouldn't have been a problem. Anyway, Stephen Dillane, who is playing Stannis, is actually seven years older than Addy and five years older than Cunningham.
I'm not familiar with the actor's actual ages, I am more concerned with how old they appear to me. And to me, as shown in the character pics, the Davos actor appears to be significantly older than Robert did in Season 1. (whereas Stannis, as presented, looks more believable as a younger brother)

Some people look older than they actually are and some look younger than they actually are (as evidenced by the actual ages of Cunningham and Dillane), and Stannis struck me as someone who would fall into the former category. Cunningham fits my mental picture of Stannis better than Dillane does, although the latter is a good actor and I'm sure he'll make a fine Stannis.

I've heard Dillane is several years older as well than Mark Abby but I don't think that makes much of a difference since they will never appear together on-screen and Abby was made to look older as Robert. I'm looking forward to seeing Dillane's performance, I thought he was a great as Thomas Jefferson in the John Adams mini-series.

I've mentioned this before but I actually pictured the actor who plays Jorah Mormont as Davos Seaworth. That Iain Glen looks like he could be the lead in Shogun if they ever remade that series.

I wondered where Asha...I mean, YARA Greyjoy was in those pictures but I suspect now that they want to keep that under wraps, given the...interesting way she's introduced in A Clash of Kings.

HBO has released a new behind the scenes video for Season 2, titled "Iceland". Lots of nice scenery with the actors on location. Also the first glimpse of "Qhorin Halfhand". (for those who have read the books)



This appears to be a copy of the HBO stream, so I'm sure a better more official copy will be uploaded shortly.

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

would be worth the trouble if it had ANYTHING on it. Since it's just the tagline, and it's the same one it's always used, not even worth POSTING, much less stretching the thread to several times its normal size...

You're just jealous. Having to scroll across the tagline makes it more epic.

On the other hand, Winter has been coming for about 4500 pages now, and hasn't arrived yet. Starting to think it got lost...

I'm assuming that you haven't read ADWD?

No, I have. Just making a joke that they constantly say that, and it's only now starting to arrive after 4500+ pages. Plus most of ADWD took place in a hot place anyway

I know you said it in jest... But ever since the end of AFFC the north has been stuck in basically one long blizzard. And it started snowing in the riverlands at the end of AFFC as well. So even though the 'official' declaration of winter did not arrive until the end of ADWD - I think you are exaggerating things a wee bit. Winter has certainly arrived.

Ok, fine, i fudged it slightly to make a joke. Usually how jokes work. They only said Winter is Coming for 4000 or so pages before it snowed for the first time. last couple hundred pages had some snow in the northern regions. And that was like a late fall snow compared to what they tell us Winters really are there. Better?
