    These castings and the character descriptions make it all-but-official this is going to be like The Crown, with some major time-jumps and multiple seasons before we even get to the Dance. Which means we should get to see the War in the Stepstones, and I am VERY excited for that.

    However, it's rumored in the same report that Corlys Velaryon will be Black, which throws a wrench into the central narrative that is the debate over Rhaenyra's children and who their father is.

    With Smith’s casting and this talk about The Crown, it’s funny to think that all three Prince Philips will have been on an ASOIAF series.

    Rhys Ifans has such a vibe about him that I actually had to stop and think “Oh right, he was never on Game of Thrones.”

    Just a perfect fit for that world.

    The Verlaryon casting is odd, because the question of his grandchildren’s true parentage is big plot point and motivating factor in the war.

    I wanted Timothy Dalton as Otto SO bad, but I am super excited to see what Rhys does with the part.
    Yeah, it's not a stretch given the Velaryon's sea-faring nature for Corlys to be Black, but they'll have to figure something out to make the paternity debate work. It could be as simple as casting Black actors as House Strong as well. They were essentially lucky landed knights who got upjumped to lords of the largest (and most cursed) castle in Westeros and were distrusted and underestimated by most of the other nobility, so that could fit well with their story.

    In which case...

    Rege-Jean Page as Ser Harwyn 'Breakbones' Strong?

    And maybe a big name like Idris Elba or Chiwetel Ejiofer to guest star as Lord Lyonel Strong? Or Lennie James if they want someone cheaper.

    I suppose now that I think about it, the books do make it pretty obvious that Velaryon wasn’t the father of those kids. He was gay and the kids didn’t share his colouring at all.

    So maybe they’ll just go with the kids looking Westerosi, and it’ll be a glaring open secret that Rhaenrya strayed.

    Yep. It's a clear change but one where I can already see where they're going with it.

    Hope we’ll explore Ashai by the Dark and Stygai in this series. It’s were the dragons come from

    Am I guessing right, that the series won‘t be set in ancient Valyria but in Westeros (which we already know)?

    Yes. There have been rumors of an Ancient Valyria series in very early evelopment, but this show will primarily take place in Westeros. Judging from recent reports, we'll be getting a good amount of action in the Stepstones for the first season or two, though.

    Bummer. I always wanted to see Valyria. Looked cool, when Tyrion and Jorah paddled by

    The Doom of Valyria happened 700 years before the events of this show. And the events of this show begin 284 years before GOT.

    This is the most socially distant Starship Enterprise that I've ever seen:
