I was thinking a lot about this post. Many times I tried to create a female Game of thrones cast of my own, but every time some characters gave me difficulties and I was very undecided. Now, finally, I think I made up my mind. So here`s the list with the actresses I consider to be suitable for GOT, along with the reasons why I choose them. P. S. : Let`s be clear-I love the real female cast of GOT and I do not wish for any changes, so this is just for fun.
1. Cersei Lannister-Charlize Theron
Long, wavy, blond hair, green eyes, pale skin, royal, wicked, furious, elegant, magnificent beauty, Charlize Theron in her role as queen Ravenna is the perfect Cersei Lannister. She has the same bad temper as Cersei, the same cruelty and also the same obsession for youth and beauty as Cersei has. She was as well promised to be destroyed by „another younger and more beautiful than you” wich is fun. She also learned that beauty can be a dangerous weapon („Tears aren`t a woman`s only weapon, the best one is between your legs.” said Cersei while she says, in a more raffinated way : „Beauty is power.”) She thinks as Cersei that „Love is weakness.” amd she expresses that many times to her sister in The huntsman : winter’s war. She married with a king to become queen and then she murdered him and tried to kill his child all like Cersei did. She looks and she acts like a real lioness, the lioness that George R. R. Martin made us to love to hate. She can play as well the role of the sweet, innocent girl. Look at this:
2. Catelyn Stark-Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett has the same presence of a great, untouchable lady as Catelyn Stark had. Most of her characters are strong, determined, serious and steeled like a real northen lady. She`s not particularly very beautiful or feminine, but you can feel the strength behind those blue eyes of a Tully. And be careful not to wake up her fury along with those screams of hers because she will scare you to death. In Robin Hood she warred a dagger and told her husband that if he puts a hand on her she will use it. In contrast, Catelyn puts a dagger in Littlefinger`s face when he tried to convince her to be with him. In The virgin queen she is perfect with red hair and it`s even dressed in blue and red the Tully colors. Now, seriously, she`s more beautiful than Michelle Fairley and Cat should have been beautiful. And her name is Cate which is hilarious, right?
3. Sansa Stark-Rachel Hurd-Wood
Am I the only one who has a serious problem with Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark? I must admit she plays that role superbly, but she lost a long time ago the innocence that Sansa should have. She looks like a full-grown woman and, I know that all the characters are older in the TV series than in the books, but that much older? I don`t whant a Sansa that` 13 years old, but at least one of 16-17 not one of 20. And the greatest problem is her hight-she`s taller than all the men she plays with : Joffrey, Littlefinger, Ramsay, Theon, which is no good. Rachel Hurd-Wood in her role as Laura I think accomplishes all the qualities that a real Sansa should have. She` s fragile, very innocent, red-headed with blue eyes. When I read the books I only think at her. She`s just pure perfection.4. Arya Stark-Kristen Stewart
I know Kristen Stewart is a very beautiful girl, but she looks also tomboyish and she would look even more so with the short hair of Arya. In her role as Snow White she is a fighter, one that gets her revenge for her father and gets back what is her by right just like Arya is determined. She is used living wild and she definitely knows what to do with a sword. Also if Jon Snow is black-haired in the TV adaptation she should be as well because the two of them looked very alike. Also she resembles somehow with Lyanna who was beautiful.5. Lysa Arryn-Kate Winslet
I`m well aware about you all must be thinking now-What the hell have these two women in common?! But try to make a little game of imagination. Kate Winslet is glorious at playing crazy, psychopathic characters as in her movie Revolutiona-ry road. She proved that she cold look old an ugly with a little make-up and the right attitude. She is also a well-known red-haired with blue eyes. And just remember: in the books Lysa wasn` skiny, she was fat and she was beautiful in her youth. And what`s most funny is that the two actresses hame the same name-Kate. 6. Margaery Tyrell-Natalie Portman
OMG! How do I pick them? Those thow are both named Natalie and both played the role of Anne Boleyn. But, leaving all this behind, Natalie Portman would be a cool Margaery. She has brown hair and, even more, brown eyes which is the real color of Margaery`s eyes. In The other Boleyn girl she portrayed Anne Boleyn to be smart, manipulative and fake, thirsty by power, determined to be, by all means, „The Queen”, pushed by her family and by her own interests to play the game, to be a queen that seduces and do not love her king, a tiran, like Joffrey was. With the same sharp tongue. And look how beautiful she looks in the green of house Tyrell:7. Melisandre-Angelina Jolie
She`s beauitful, sexy, exotic, persuasive, evil, seductive, manipulates the king (in that case her son), but she cares for him so much at the point she would risk her own life for him. He`s her idol and she has a tormented relationship with him. This description is suitable for queen Olympia as for Melisandre as well. Angelina Jolie looks exactly like the great wick and seductress having the same attitude and composure. Queen Olympia was also said to be a wick, so… For me Angie is the perfect Meli. Plus she looks superbly with red hair.8. Daenerys Targaryen-Isabel Lucas
Isabel Lucas is refined, beautiful with porcelain skin and very light blonde hair. She has innocence, but also strength and playing Athena she was exactly like Danenerys should be-a powerful queen who can rule the world # Goddess. And she looks fabulous with silver hair like in the picture below. In the other the dothraki queen we need.
9. Asha/ Yara Greyjoy-Keira Knightley
First of all I have to say that I definitely dislike the actress who plays Asha (Yara) Greyjoy in the series. She was supposed to be beautiful, very beautiful and young. And the actress is neither. So instead of Gemma Whelan why not choosing Keira Knightley as she is beautiful, young, talented and all. And here it comes-she is an undaunted ship commander just like Asha should be who leads hundreds of men who are ready to die for her. She is smart and bold and she could always shut your mouth with only two words. And to see the irony of fate she wears a battle costume black with gold-the Greyjoy colors. I saw a lot of movies with Keira Knightley and she is so proper with this kind of role that every time when I read an Asha chapter from ASOIAF I imagine her all the time. Unfortunately HBO always brings me back to reality. Look what a great leader she is for her men and how fearless on her keel, like she is a real iron lady, with the sea in her very veins. And she is a very beautiful brunette as well (because she is brunette in the books) In the next picture she looks like I imagine Asha to be when she is Staniss`s prisoner. Sitting in a corner, surrounded by snowflakes. She was a huge warrior queen in this movie as well.
10. Brienne of Thart-Tilda Swinton
I really see Tilda being Brienne. She has the same male look of Brienne, she`s very tall and blond. Also she can look really fireless with a sword like in her role as Jadis from The chronicles of Narnia. And she really has that boyish short hair cut, right?11. Ygritte-Jessica Chastain
Red headed, smart, a great warrior in ice and snow, with a sharp tongue (always teasing her lover), with bow and arrows this is exactly what describes this two female characters. And look how concentrated they both are with that bow and arrow. And for God’s sake! Remember that Ygritte never missed a target and when she shuts Jon Snow he realises that she actually „missed” just in order to live him alive? Well, that’s the exact same thing that Sara does to her Eric. Plus all that common story in which she thinks she was betrayded and tries to hates him for that. I truly think that the love story from The huntsman was inspired by Jon and Ygritte. So what`s left to be said? BTW, the love scene in the cave between Sara and Eric from The Hutsman : Winter`s war? Did it look familiar to you? Well maybe because of this :
12. Gilly-Amy Adams
Amy Adams will do for a perfect Gilly. She has some kind of innocence about her and also can look quite tormented and she is pretty as well. She is also very good at playing silly, clumsy girls who know nothing and strike to adapt from a different world to civilization. Like she did in Enchanted. Everything was so strange and unknown to her. And she treated everything and everyone so funny just like Gilly does considering all that she does`n know as magic. Like here (kind of like when Gilly called Sam a wizard because he was able to read) :
13. Rebecca Ferguson-Dalla
Just like the wife of Mance Rayder, Rebecca Ferguson in The white queen is a blonde, beautiful yet mature woman, clever and always ready to give her husband some great advice. Also pregnancy looks great on her, don`t you think? And she is so beautiful here sitting in the snow like a true wilding queen.
14. Val- Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson is the perfect Val with that perfect blonde hair of hers and those blue eyes. She also has „high sharp cheekbones” and she is „she is slender with a full bosom”. As Jon Snow says about Val she „does not need to smile; she would have turned men’s heads in any court in the wide world.” Plus she can also play powerful characters, women who fight and stand up for their believes. A true princess, but a wild one. And look how beautiful she is in white fur: 15. Osha-Eva Green
This Osha would be just gorgeous. Eva Green is so wild in every movie she plays in, savage and dangerous like a wolf, with the exact same attitude and she always know how to fight, literally. And she looks fabulous with blowzy hair. Just like her role as Morgan in Camelot. And it will also be easy to understand why Theon wanted her so badly. Because she is absolutely amazing. The kind of woman that makes you feel oblige to say : „OMG, what a woman!!!” Not to mention that in Camelot she also had knowledges about magic as Osha has in Game of thrones. 16. Meera Reed-Jennifer Lawrence
She is definitely a fighter. One that has in nocence and also is a modest girl. She`s not that beautiful, but she can be very attractive as well. In her role of Katniss she has the character and temper of Meera Reed. She`s got the face and the same personality. And she` s so familiar with forest and hunting. 17. Mya Stone-Michelle Ryan
She is the per fect Bara theon girl: huge blue eyes (which I con sider her best feature, like were Mya`s eyes considered) and Mya`s short, black hair. She` tall as well and looks lusty, exactly like Robert`s bastard daughter. In Merlin the forest looks like being in her very veins.
18. Myranda-Mila Kunis
Even if we speak about Ramsay` s Myranda or about Myranda Royce, Mila Kunis is the perfect answer. She is naughty, daring and knows exactly what her interests are. She looks like the kind of girl which will bite you until you bleed/the kind of girl that you can die while making love to it. And she played a lot of characters that were lacking conscious, that were rake.
19. Dacey Mormont-Bridget Regan
Bridget Regan as Kahlan was just perfect to portrait Dacey. Lanky and brunette, a fantastic and bra-ve warrior. And, God, how much she looks like the fanart near her! Also, as you may see down bellow, exactly like George R. R. Martin described her in the books, „at ease in a lady’s garb or in leather armor.” And she „remains elegant in dress and dance.” 20. Jeyne Westerling-Tamsin Egerton
Ok, guys, so we`re all aware to the fact that Talisa Stark, from HBO`s Game of thrones, is not the real queen in the North as her character doesn`t apear in the books and is replaced by a normal lady from Westeros, Jeyne Westerling, far more girly and not very strong, which Robb doesn`t seems to love her so crazy like in the series, and who never has a baby and never dies, being absent at the Red wedding. So, I wondered, if HBO would have respected the books, who had been more proper for the role of Jeyne? And I think I`ve got the answer in Tamsin Egerton`s Guinevere from Camelot. She would have been perfect. But comparing, which
21. Roslin Frey-Emily Browning
She`s the beautiful child that will suffer so much from the world. Emily Browning is like Roslin, (and now I`m quoting): „small. She has very white skin, a pretty face with a small chin, delicate nose, and big brown eyes. Her hair is brown and reaches her waist.” She looks and acts like a gentle maid, who knows how to endure. So, Emily Browning is perfect, right?
22. Ros-Julia Roberts
A crazy, shame less girl, who also suffers a lot, but knows exactly how to hide it. This was Julia Roberts in Pretty woman and this Ros in Game of thrones. A prostitute in the same time, Julia knows how to nail this kind of role. She looks mature and beautiful and. though heer character might be a whore, but is one that could drive you mad about her. And she has that huge, amazing red hair. Magnificent to play Ros. And she would be just gorgeous in one of those colorful, sparkling, nasty costumes that I imagine are worn in Littlefinger`s brothel :
23. Shae-Audrey Tautou
Audrey Tautou has that sweet innocence that Shae from the books has and not the one from the TV series. She is funny, very pretty, apparently inoffensive and she looks just like a girl of 18 years old should look plus Shae`s large, dark, beautiful eyes. You won`t excpect her to betray you or anything like that and I am sure she would look lovely with Tyrion as a couple. She has that inoffensive air along with the determination of a girl that wants to become something in life like she had in „Coco avant Chanel”. And she also has that brunnete hair and weaa the same haircut as Shae from ASOIAF worn. She looks, even in real life, more Shae than the Shae from the TV series herself. Plus she is a great, great actress that would, no doubt, nail this role. And here we have her wearing a pink dress, reminding me of the pink dress of Shae:
24. Missandei-Priyanka Chopra
In The World of Ice and Fire women of the Naath island are considered to be the most beautiful in the world. So why not choose a former Miss Univers for the job? Priyanka Chopra isn`t just extraordinary beautiful, but she suits the description of a Naathian woman as well : she has brown hair, brown eyes, olive skin and is so exotic. Just admire her Missandeish style :
25. Myrcella Baratheon-Amanda Seyfried
Amanda Syefried is in my opinion one of the most beautiful women alive. She has that sweet innocence on her face, but also you can feel how dangerous that innocence could be for you. She has the pale skin and that amazing blonde hair that Myrcella should have. And for all of those Myrcellas out there she is the only one that has green eyes like a true Lannister. You can imagine her turning into Cersei. And what an amazing pink, etherial girl she is. And those long, golden waves.
26. Ellaria Sand-Penelope Cruz
She is the same stubborn, voluptuous, spicy, fiery girl who doesn`t give a shit about what the world may say. Seductive, exotic and, most of all, spanish, the exactly spanish accent that Ellaria needs. She has black hair, black eyes, brown skin, she is strong determined and extremely passionate. The perfect lover for the reckless Oberyn Martell. And look how gorgeous she is with a snake around her. Literally :
27. Obara Sand-Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Ok, I know that Obara was supposed to be an ugly woman, but come on, how could I resist it? When she in The last legion is a fearless, dressed in armour warrior, with the perfect dornish looks and also the eyes of the daughters of Oberyn Martell. I mean, why shouldn`t we have such a splendid Obara like the one bellow, walking on the sand of Dorne?
Irina Shayk matches perfectly Nymeria Sand`s description in the books: seductive, voluptuous, exotic and a great lady. She has indeed „high cheekbones, and full lips” is ” slim and slender as a willow, with straight black hair”. In „Hercules : The Thracian wars” she plays Megarah, a woman who looks exactly like lady Nym. She would be just perfect for the role with all her arabic air. Ans she also has a similar air with Aishwarya I would der to say. Look at the picture above with that braid, she is just like you would imagine Nymeria . And then comes the TV series version…
29. Tyene Sand-Holliday Grainger
If there is anything you may say, without being wrong, about Holly Grainger is that she`s sweet as summer strawberries, fair with golden hair, with blue eyes and an almost otherworldly innocence about her. Sounds familiar to you? Well maybe that`s because it`s the exactly same description that Tyene Sand has on her page from A wiki of Ice and Fire. In her roles as Sophia in Merlin or Lucrezia Borgia in The Borgias she is also like Tyene being „treacherous, while maintaining a sweet and pious persona”. She appears so pure and innocent with that ethereal beauty of hers, but in fact she`s sly and, sometimes, even wicked. She also knows a lot about poison as Tyene does. unfortunately for us we will never going to see in GOT the real Tyene Sand. The one in the series comparing to her book version is awful. I mean, really guys?
30. Arianne Martell-Janina Gavankar
I would love to see Arianne Martell in Game of thrones, especially Janina Gavankar being her. She is the perfect Arianne Martell, a seductress with „olive skin, large dark eyes and long, thick black hair that falls in ringlets to the middle of her back. She has full lips and round ripe breasts with huge dark nipples.” Literally, she has shown that in some TV series when she appeared naked. Her looks makes you think that you will never be able to resist her, that she will play you the way she wants, completely shameless. And I should say Janina Gavankar looks exactly like all the fanarts that I found on the internet with princess Arianne. And, trust me, I found a lot. Plus to mention that there are a lot of people out there who wanted her to be the heiress of Dorne. Unfortunately we will never be that lucky which is a shame. Dorne was poorly treated in the TV adaptation of A song of Ice and Fire. And those huge, huge, huge eyes…
31. Taena Merryweather-Monica Belluci
Mature, sexy, black hair, dark eyes, absolutely unbelievable. Monica Belluci, no other than Taena Merryweather. She was really something if she determined Cersei to have a relation with her. She says about Taena (and it`s so available about Monica as well) : „The Myrish woman was too beautiful by half; long-legged and full-breasted, with smooth olive skin, ripe lips, huge dark eyes, and thick black hair that always looked as if she’d just come from bed. She even smells of sin, like some exotic lotus.” Also an extremely dangerous, smart, cunning woman who knows exactly what she wants. Her sensuality is something you will never forget. We can say about Monica the exact words that Jaime Lannister said about Taena : „Every step is a seduction” And, seriously, who wouldn’t want to be able to compare the two huge beauties that Charlize Theron and Monica Belluci are? I am already smelling the fight of fans about „Who is more beautiful?”
