Excellent - thank you for sharing!
Especially love Gwendoline Christie as Brienne. She looks fabulous. I'll admit I did not picture Davos that way at all (more Inigo Montoya from the Princess Bride) but I can go with it. Looking forward to season 2 with great excitement!

Same thing here. Not that I don't like Davos' TV version, mind you, but so far he is one of the most different characters from what I pictured from the books.

I really like Brienne, I just hope she's tall.

Gwendoline Christie (the actress) is 6'3". No worries there.

Heh. I know that after the announcement, people were worried that Gwendoline Christie was "too pretty" to play Brienne.

I think it's safe to say that the makeup folks are due for another Emmy nomination here.

Am I the only one who doesn't think Brienne looks that ugly here?

It's not that she looks that ugly by modern standards. But by Westeros standards, she looks way too masculine, is way too tale, and not busty enough. I don't think her hair is thin enough in that shot, but, hey - it is only one picture.

I mean, given how Tyrion is *supposed* to look, there's no way we were getting a seriously "ugly" Brienne. She's never flat-out described as "ugly" anyway, except by, well, assholes - she's certainly not deformed or anything. But "butch" is not an adjective that your average Westeros woman is going to find complimentary.

No. But you know how it works on TV versus real life:

Ugly in real life is average looking on TV.
Average looking in real life is pretty on TV.
Pretty in real life is gorgeous on TV.
Gorgeous in real life is inhumanly beautiful on TV.

(That said, I love her costume and expression.)

Brienne, WOW
I was skeptical about the Brienne casting, since I thought the actress was way too pretty. I was hoping for a Charlize Theron/Monster treatment, but I wasn't sure it was gonna happen.

Glad to see I was wrong. Brienne looks perfect! (Well, she doesn't have the large blue eyes, but only a supreme nerd would rage at that. ;)

Those are great pics posted so far. I hope we'll see Jaqen soon!

I must say you have chosen Brienne very very well! She is just like I imagined her, perfect! And Davos Seaworth (by the way, I love his name) is also as I imagined him (except that the fingers missing are in the wrong hand :P)
The only actor that is not as I imagined him is Patrick Malahide, as Balon Greyjoy. I pictured Balon in a completely different way. Yet, if Patrick plays his part well, I will be happy! :)

When I saw that pic of Gwendoline Christie as Brienne I actually said "holy fuck" out loud.

I CANNOT BELIEVE how accurate the casting is! BRAVO!

Am I the only one who doesn't believe that Brienne (the character, not Gwendoline Christie) isn't actually ugly? I imagine she is a handsome butch girl...but so far out of the beauty standards that no one can see her beauty...also because of that she is awkward and without a lot self-confidence...which doesn't help.

Brienne looks pretty cool, I imagined her slightly different (isn't that always the way w/ adaptions tho?) and I imagined Davos about 20 years younger, in appearance. Nevertheless, awesome!

Brienne FTW!
Mr. Martin, I have to tell you, when you announced the casting of Brienne, I flinched internally, because while *your* Brienne is such a fully realized, living breathing creation, casting her with a real life actress seemed so difficult.

Ms. Cristie looks awesome all scrubbed down and armored up. Huzzah!

Oh my seven hells!

"A Beauty! A Beauty!"

Guess they did away with the Rainbow Guard, but otherwise, perfect.
