If by some miracle HBO would make a movie about Robert`s rebellion, I would like (another miracle) that the actors who would play in it to be the actors from The lord of the rings, just as they were back in those days when LOTR was made. Just think how perfect that would be!
He should be Robert Baratheon as he is dark haired with blue eyes like all the Baratheons and because in LOTR he becomes king. He looks exactly like I imagine Robert looked like back when he was young, passional and in love. And of course a great warrior. Plus he really reminds you a bit about Mark Addy`s interpretation of Robert, don`t you think?
Liv Tyler has always been to me the „Ashara Deyne” as she she isn`t proper just for her looks, but it`s how Ashara was supposed to be : delicate and fragile, with a bit of tragic in her that lately leaded to her suicide.
It would be really something if we could rejuvenate Sean Bean again in order to play a younger Ned Stark. I mean who else could do this part better than himself?
And Legolas must be Rhaegar. He has silver hair like all the Targaryens had and his eyes are almost violet. Like Rhaegar he seems a sensible man (I could see him playing the harp), and a fantastic warrior as well. And he is the kind to start wars just for love-who didn`t see Orlando Bloom playing Paris in Troy? It`s similar with what Rhaegar did to his country and family.
And Galadriel would be queen Rhaella Targaryen. She`s got the hair and the looks like an authentic and mature queen and I couldn`t imagine someone more proper to play Rhaegar`s mother.
At last, King Theoden, in his demonic posse ssion form, is definitely the Mad king, Aerys. He looks just like him with that white, tangled beard and hair, those teeth, those crazy eyes and that blowzy aspect. Plus the exact same attitude wich is priceless.
