I think they'll be changing the Tyroshi look. It's not just something that will work on screen. I dare to day I didn't quite buy it on book pages either. I think something along the lines what happened with Jaqen, the original idea is still there sort of, but not in such a flashy fashion as described in the original.
Yeah, I meant Edmure.
Well, that Beric was actually credited as Beric if I understood correctly and is a professional actor. But I also got the glorified extra feel of him. We'll see. I have trust in D&D and Nina Gold that they'll find the right man for that role also.
The guy does look young to be Tormund, but he certainly has the goofy face. Edmure could work, but I never got much of a comical vibe from Edmure. I went and did a google search for Kristofer Hivju, and I think he certainly looks the part. Especially if he keeps that beard.
Wasn't the guy who played Jaqen in the last episode of season 1 also credited as Jaqen? Maybe not. I think that actor was also credited because in that scene in the Throne Room Ned actually refers to him by name, even though doesn't really have any lines.
Another thing to think about is by the time Beric comes into the story again -
No, those three were just credited as extras. Beric guy was actually like casted casted, audition and all. I just remembered that because it was one of the earliest castings leaked back when they started producing season 1. Or well, they guy tweeted that he was cast as Beric. He has a name and all. David Michael Scott, unlike the three in the cage. Not like I have anything against recasting, could work just fine. Maybe even preferable considering the things you mentioned in the spoiler tags. But the possibility is there that the same guy might even continue.

Oh, and I always had a comical vibe of Edmure. Sad comical, not intented funny. The sort of "that guy is joke" feeling. Not the sort of goofiness Hivju gives out on few of those photos of course, but still.
I hate Daario.

And yeah, I totally agree about Edmure. I think he's intended to come off that way exactly.

As an other note, am I the only one who thought Quaithe looked absolutely ridiculous? That mask was just plain silly and the dress actually looked like something one might find from the nearest shop.
That's an awful idea...DO NOT WANT
Yeah, I was taken aback by how Quaithe looked. What's wrong with her just having a wooden mask? I guess because she's in Qarth she might dress like a noble, but it still looked off.

I'm not sure what you mean by it being realistic either. Not saying it wasn't...
And actually in the books, I thought Dany is
Ah yeah, but some time passes between the beginning of the books and when she arrives at that area in Book 3. Not sure how much, but who knows.

Maan, episode 6 was epic. Best one of the season so far. I actually love how they are doing their own thing with several of the storylines, Dany, Jon, Robb, Arya and some changes to Theon. Not sure what did the Osha x Theon scene serve though, other than the episode obligatory boobs. But I still have the same opinion I've had for a couple of episodes - my least favorite stroyline in the book (Theon) is the one I'm most interested in the show.
I think Aryas story actually makes bit more sense now than in the books, or well some of the choices she makes. I loved the added scene where Littlefinger visits Tywin. Talking of which, Charles Dance is amazing. So is Maisie. Ygritte is perfect, even if she is a lot hotter than the character is described as in the books.
Also happy news - bastard of Bolton mentioned! Maybe we'll have our sick little Ramsay next season! Also the guy playing Roose Bolton is good. Though not sold on this mysterious new Jeyne, am I only one who think she is actually a Lannister spy?
I like that they are giving Danys story more flesh than it had in the second book. Seems like
R.I.P Ser Rodrik. Your beard was epic and so were you.

Oh yeah, toally forgot to mention the sending of Myrcella/mob scene. Tommen is so adorable. Living proof that not all Lannister are rotten. For first I were agraid they would be cutting the Sandor and Sansa interaction again by having Sandor to protects Joffrey instead, but he did come to his little birds aid! I were so dissapointed on season one when they moved the dialogue between Hound and Sansa to Littlefinger. I hated Sansa in the books, untill her grew on me during Feast. Now I just can't but to help bad for her eveytime I see her on the show. I'm glad she might have found a friend in Shae.
But the mob scene was excellently chaotic. Damn that hand. Poor High Septon.
I loved the scene where the septon was murdered. Epic.
And I like what they're doing, although confuses me why they keep killing the few Dothrakis She has. :/
