She was one of my first serious TV crushes. Sadly I was just a little boy then and that was a very long time ago. She is no longer

Yes, serious.
I didn't know who she was until Confabulat posted the pics.

Even though she's obviously well past her prime, I really think this woman ought to be naked, anyway, out of solidarity with the show's other actresses.

It's only fair.
 
2012-07-14 10:16:28 AM
She was hot back in the day but I bet now, naked, she would look like 'boiled leather jumpsuit'

About a year or so ago, The New Yorker wrote a lengthy article about people who had this attitude. To boil it down: the series doesn't belong to you, get over it.

After a headline like "'Game of Thrones' panel focuses on nudity, Diana Rigg", continuing straightaway with a GRRM picture is not cool. It is known.
 
2012-07-14 10:40:10 AM
I know it goes without saying, but Rose Leslie is hot hot HOT. Kit Harington is one lucky sonavabiatch for getting to dry-hump her while she was tied up.


/would let her teach me how to do it

So they're casting the Reeds? Erm, isn't it a bit late for that? Osha, Hodor, Bran and Rickon are already on the way. Will they just appear mystically in their path?

/Looking at the cast, they might find them hidden in an attic
 
2012-07-14 10:45:54 AM
From the quotes in the article, it looks like GRRM got a kick out of the SNL sketch about his 13 year old co-producer.

I wonder if Obama will let me use his time-machine so I can go back to the 60's because I would hit that so hard it would show up on the Richter scale..

Spoilers

she's a good choice. The consensus is that the Tyrells are the most powerful faction as of FFC and DWD, and she's the one pulling the strings. Not sure how crazy I am of the neutering of the Lannisters, purely in a foreward momentum sense, but Martin made me care about them after he destroyed the Starks, so maybe he can pull it off again

/it'll be tough if he sticks by his 'no new POV characters pledge

So I've read the books and watched the first season of the show. It sounds like they don't get all the way through the second book in the second season if they are just casting those parts now.

Either way, looking forward to season 2 marathon.

For all of you who say Dame Rigg is too old:

DIAF.

She's still got it going on.

But, from what I've heard, she wouldn't give most of us the time of day. Except maybe Grables'Daughter.

For the role? Jeepers, considering how ancient and fragile the Queen of Thorns is described, she might not be old enough. But young Rigg has a slight resemblance to the Margaery actress, which is a welcome change.
 
2012-07-14 11:48:13 AM
She may be the main reason why I have such a thing for brunettes. Well, Mrs. Peel, Sarah Jane Smith, Leela, Batgirl, The 60's and early 70's were chock full of hot brunettes on television.

Of them all however only Diana Rigg got to marry James Bond!

They can just show up and be like OMG Dreams Let Us To You! Actually simplifies their introduction a lot.

They just shuffled some things around. There are actually a couple of scenes from A Storm of Swords that they pulled forward into season 2, like the beginning of Jamie and Brieene's road trip.

is this show any good?
 
2012-07-14 12:32:02 PM
I just watched the first half of the first episode and so far it looks OK... I wonder if she'll do any nude scenes?

I don't have the skillz, but a 'shop of the "Road Trip" movie poster that has been Game of Thrones-ified would be hysterical if done right.

Fish, the former lead singer of Marillion, auditioned for a part. Sadly, not the minstrel named Marillion. He won't say which part he read for.

Ok let's make some predictions about who will die.

1) Tyrion
2) Stannis
3) The young dragon Aegon Targaryen
4) Cersie
5) A few tyrells.

You mean in the not-yet-written books? If so...

SPOILERS!!!!!

Tyrion - mmmm....no
Stannis - Oh hell yes
Young Argon - Yep
Cersie - Probably
Tyrells - Many and many

I'll also vote for Arya and Jamie biting it near the climactic finish. As well as Jon, if he doesn't stay dead. And I hope Dany...please, please, please kill off that whiny biatch lol

And Bran might as well be dead if he stays a tree....

Jon and Dany will be alive at the end. They are the Ice and Fire of A Song of Ice and Fire.

I don't see Arya dying. She will probably forsake family bonds and live as a faceless man(woman?) since they are big on the obliteration of self.

I see tyrion dying because Martin keeps killing people that seem pivotal.

My long-held theory is that Arya has to kill Jon because he's been utterly corrupted by Melisandre into the R'hollor cult, and then Arya kills herself in remorse.
