Did you ever wondered who would play who if the prequels for GoT happened? Well I did and I am going to share my ideas with you. Add yours if you want or replace mine. I will appreciate everything.
Liam Neeson as Rickard Stark
I dont think there needs to be much of said. He is a great actor and as a head of Starks he should be suitable.
Katie Mcgrath as Lyanna Stark
I was thinking that she could play young Cersei Lannister as well, but I would like her more in role of the she-wolf. And you can safe moneys from hair color.
Johann Urb as Brandon Stark / Jaime Lannister
I cannot decide. He reminds me Waldau, but somehow I can imagine him also as a Stark. Or maybe Targaryen?
Thats the last stark for now.
Zac Efron as Rhaegar Targaryen
To find a guy, who will look good in long white hairs, you either need a lot of will or simply find someone and give him tons of makeup. I think that this one might be able to pull it.
Viggo Mortensen as Arthur Dayne, the Sword of the Morning
Viggo has quite experience with historical swordsmen and there are not many actors who would deserve this role more.
Daniel Radcliffe as Petyr Baelish / Howland Reed
To find an actor, that is quite small and has mysterious / cunning face is hard. I can imagine Daniel as full of hope young Petyr or even as a small and magic learning Howland. The only question is, if he is capable of it.
Willem Dafoe or Christopher Walken as Aerys II Targaryen
Burn them all.
Robert Pattinson as Robert Baratheon or Brandon Stark
Now before the you will start hate me, you have to realize that find an actor, who can look heroic, bad, and just overall as mix of everything is bad. I was looking on Henry Cavill, but that guy looks just too cute and he just dont look to play someone who is drunk all the time. On the other hand, I can imagine Robert with the beer in one hand and woman in the other. He doesnt look as protagonist or antagonist and thats the same as Baratheon in this case. When you look on picture below and imagine him with some budy build excercise, cant you imagine him waving the warhammer? He has 6 feets and 1 inch of height which is acceptable.
Alex Pettyfer as Eddard Stark
This was one from the hardest to find. I needed someone who looks like a good guy, but have a bit hard and tought look.
I will try to update this cast. I was reconsidering Channing Tatum, althought I am not sure of his role. Feel free to comment or ask.
