George RR Martin Makes Us Dance

Charles Dance

No, no, no.  He’s not finished A Dance With Dragons (yet), but we’re going to be dancing all the same.  Charles Dance has landed the role of the Lannister patriarch, Tywin Lannister. Known for his roles in Labyrinth, and Bleak House, Dance’s name has been batted around for months, and landed on several casting polls for the much-anticipated show.   Fans have been eagerly awaiting a Tywin casting announcement. The oldest Lannister is the father of Cersei (Lena Headey), Jaime (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau), and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage); was hand of the King, and one of the most powerful men in Westeros.  Dance has some awfully big shoes to fill  and I can’t think of anyone better for the task.  

And playing catch-up, during my absence this week, fans have been given and solved a few more casting clues by the ever entertaining George RR Martin. Doreah will be played by uk soap star Roxanne McKee. Irri will be palyed by Amrita Acharia. Everyone’s favourite prostitute, Shae, will be played by Sibel Kekilli.  

 In sad news, Roy Dotrice has had to leave the project because of health concerns.   Julian Glover will now fill the role of Grand Maester Pycelle.  We all wish Roy Dotrice the best of health and a speedy recovery.  Who knows,  maybe there will be another role for him down the line. Heh Heh.
