I never would have put Boromir and Elizabeth Bennet together, but I CAN LIVE WITH IT. Other than those two, I've only ever heard of Mark Addy, which, well, the other roles I've seen him in are Fred Flinstone and one of the other squires in A Knight's Tale, so...really? King Robert? Mark Addy? Tamzin Merchant apparently plays Katherine Howard on the tv show The Tudors, so I love her already, and I'm looking forward to seeing an actual Sansa before me. Sansa's always been my favorite Stark. She loves books and stories and lives her head in the clouds, just like me! Lastly, I look forward to seeing Richard Madden as Robb Stark....I wonder if they've cast Jeyne Westerling yet...
A lot of the actors also physically look a lot like how imagined the characters in my head, which is good. Sean Bean doesn't look anything like the Eddard in my head, but I can definitely see him doing a very good job.
What are your thoughts so far?
