I am going to need something else to watch now, until The Walking Dead & Game Of Thrones is back.. I might just do the re-runs and sit through them all again.
Read the books!! though if you are not an avid reader, I think you should have  a snip at them, I dont know but by the time you finish them it will nearly be 2014.

If you look at his IMDb ,it says he was in it,but it was way into his career already ,and looks like his one of maybe two fantasy roles .
He plays a human 99% of the time,as per his IMDb .
Warwick plays a fantasy character 99% of the time .
True enough, but it's also fair to point out that I recognise most of the movies on Warwick Davis' list, but the ones on Peter Dinklage's list are almost totally unknown to me.  Of course, I am a fan of sci-fi and fantasy films, which generally include "non-human" characters.

Robert Baratheon was alone in his worry about what could be 20,000 Dothraki screamers invading the seven kingdoms and holing up its Lords in their high castle walls after slaughtering everyone within reach on the open ground.   Even he had no idea how much worse it could actually get.   Neither freed Meereen slaves nor Astaporian Unsullied nor Essosi dragons fear the black salt water.

So many directions this story can go but I can see it ending with something like you suggest.  Imagine a gutted westeros, weakend by internecine wars, starved during a long winter after the crops were destroyed in said wars and then the cringing populace decimated by the white walkers.  Finally spring arrives and you look up and see three dragons led by an angry blonde empress flying at the head of an army of thousands.  I have no idea at all where we are headed but ....

"A bear there was, a bear, a bear!
All black and brown, and covered with hair!
Oh, come, they said, oh come to the fair!
The fair? Said he, but I'm a bear!
All black, and brown, and covered with hair!

And down the road from here to there.
From here! To there!
Three boys, a goat, and a dancing bear!
They danced and spun, all the way to the fair!

Oh, sweet she was, and pure, and fair!
The maid with honey,
In her hair! Her hair!
The maid with honey in her hair!

He smelled the scent on the summer air!
The bear! The bear!
All black and brown and covered with hair!
He smelled the scent on the summer air!
He sniffed and roared and smelled it there!
Honey on the summer air!

Oh, I'm a maid, and I'm pure and fair!
I'll never dance with a hairy bear!
A bear! A bear!
I'll never dance with a hairy bear!
He lifted her high into the air!
The bear! The bear!

I called for a knight, but you're a bear!
A bear! A bear!
All black and brown and covered with hair!
She kicked and wailed, the maid so fair,
But he licked the honey from her hair!
Her hair! Her hair!

Then she sighed and squealed and kicked the air!
My bear! She sang. My bear so fair!
And off they went, from here to there,
The bear, the bear, and the maiden fair."

That's the role that really brought him to everyone's attention .

Seems to be a new genre on Youtube, TV viewers recorded reactions of themselves as they watch the Red Wedding live. Quite entertaining some of them

Before this post, I hadn't even heard of the Lands of Ice and Fire. Sounds somewhat similar to Robert Jordan's Worlds of the Wheel of Time - not quite essential for the books, but sometimes useful and rarely actually used. I'll probably buy it just for the sake of saying I've owned it :whistle:
