Red Carpet Rundown: “Game Of Thrones” Premiere Party

Posted on March 19, 2014

Line up, men and women of Westeros. We’re gonna do this all QUICK and JUDGEY.

Maisie Williams in Peter Jensen Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)

Acid yellow paired with off-white makes our eyes hurt. And kudos on the craft project coming out so well, but toilet paper skirts will always be a NO.

Jack Gleeson Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (2)

  And this is why you leave one jacket button undone. He could probably do with something a little more dramatic in terms of color. In fact, if it were up to us, grey would be off the menu for him.

 

 

Peter Dinklage Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (4)

 Always with the perfect tailoring. He routinely puts the rest of male Hollywood to shame on that front.

Gwendoline Christie in Giles Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (5)

 She looks THRILLED to wear makeup, a dress and heels in public. The dress is interesting, but it really doesn’t need that gigantic flounce.

Rory McCann Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (6)

The Hound cleans up well.

Nathalie Emmanuel Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (7)

 Okay. Well. Points for originality, we suppose. We’re not fans of ass capes.

Rose Leslie Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (8)

A dress made out of old foundation garments and luggage lining.

Alfie Allen Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (9)

 Nice color. Horrifyingly bad fit.

Sophie Turner in Peter Pilotto Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (10)

 Girl, that’s too much skirt for you to handle, your accessories look like they came out of a vending machine, and you matched your eyeshadow to your clothes, which kind of makes us twitchy.

Emilia Clarke in Donna Karan Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (11)

 Pretty, but the hem’s a skosh too long for her. We hate to be picky about this sort of thing, but a black pedi would’ve done a lot to complete the look.

Carice van Houten in Christian Dior Game-Thrones-Season-4-Premiere-Red-Carpet-Rundown-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (12)

 Very pretty, but we hate the Barbie shoes and belt.         [Photo Credit: Janet Mayer/PRPhotos, Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images]

    • Evan

      They’re certainly a motley crew.

      • sdgreengirl

        That’s exactly what I thought while looking at these pictures! I don’t watch the show so I have no idea who anyone is except for Peter.

    • Imasewsure

      Dinklage looks a bit formal for my taste but at least he looks nice. This round goes to the kilt though.
      And it was nice of ALL of the women to take themselves out of the competition right away too.
      STYLISTS please – maybe PD can lend you his!!

      • styrch

        Totally agree that this round goes to the kilt!
        I do like Peter Dinklage’s outfit but perhaps he and Jack Gleeson could trade color schemes?

    • Michael_Jones

      I watch this show avidly, but, with the lack of wigs and period clothing, I still had to go and look up who some of these people are. (I don’t like the dress much, either, but bonus points for Brienne for looking so pretty and feminine.)

      • tereliz

        Honestly I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in a skirt this long. She usually defaults to minis that go micro on her enviably long legs. That face, tho.

        • sundaynightaddict

          I was so happy to see her in something 6″ longer that I can overlook everything else on her person.

    • J. Preposterice

      I am sitting here mumbling “happy objectified scotsman day to me”…

    • Anna

      -The Hound and Peter Dinklage for the win!
      -LOVE Rose Leslie’s “kissed by fire” hair, but sadly not much else about her look here.
      -Alfie Allen continues to have serial killer resting face.
      -Disappointed in The Khaleesi.
      -The bust on Carice van Houten’s dress is doing her no favours. Want to like it, but the hem is awkward and the overall effect is reminding me of a Christmas tree skirt and tinsel.

      • marlie

        “Serial killer resting face.” HA.

      • AnnaleighBelle

        I think Emilia Clarke is amazingly gorgeous on the show, but I’m usually disappointed when I see her out of character. I can’t imagine – hope it isn’t – the white-blonde hair for me. I usually love a dark haired woman (it usually brings out their eyes).

        • Anna

          Totally agree, I can’t recall a red carpet appearance of hers that I’ve absolutely loved. She is so gorgeous and has such potential, maybe a referral to Lupita and Michelle Dockery’s stylist is in order?
          I hate that white-blonde hair on the show, makes her looks sallow, her natural colour is so lovely.

      • ScarlettHarlot

        He and Michael Shannon should team up to play a father son serial killer team.

        • Anna

          How have I not made this connection before? Michael Shannon could SO be his dad. I scare easily so I probably couldn’t sit through that movie, but it would be perfect casting.

    • Denise Alden

      Dinklage: God, that FACE! Magnificent!

      • ceceliadid

        Yup, but I think it’s time for a haircut. Get the hair off his face and trimmed and he’d be even more fabulous…

        • Nicholas

          If I were his age and still had hair like that, I’d probably William Wallace it up as well.

    • AthenaJ

      I got all excited once I saw this post until I realized we’re still two and a half weeks away from the episode airing on TV… Oh well, I’ll take this as a quick GOT fix for now. Btw, Brienne looks so lovely, I’ll take a large unnecessary flounce over a big orange ass cape any day.

      • Kitten Mittons

        But still a pretty terrifying Sophie’s Choice. My hope for all BK’s is that they never find themselves in that situation.

    • Carleenml

      “I see you looking at my foundation garments and luggage linings, John Snoooooooooow” (can’t look at Rose Leslie without saying John Snooooooooooow over and over again)

      • AthenaJ

        Jon Snow: “Ygritte, why are you wearing my nana’s nightgown?”
        Ygritte: “You know nothin’, Jon Snow!!”

    • Sarah

      Alfie Allen: When your suit is more ill-fitting than the cheap black G-man get-ups sported by the Blues Brothers, you should think twice about wearing it on the RC.

      • Carleenml

        it’s like there’s a little look-like-a-girl-but-not-in-a-good-way flare of the jacket at the hips.

        • Sarah

          Yep. And hella droopy trousers. Yikes.

    • Jen

      As a proud Scot, I love how ridiculously tartan that outfit is…

    • The Counselor

      I know Peter Dinklage has a great track record for good tailoring, and I agree that the pieces on his upper half are very well-fitted, but aren’t the pants too long? This site taught me that you want a little extra length, so that there’s a break in the crease above the shoe and your ankles won’t show too much when you sit, but I thought puddling fabric was a no-no?

      • Watts

        Agreed. I’d take those pants up just a little bit for Dinklage.

        Oh, who are we kidding, I’m more likely to try to take them OFF Dinklage. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

    • Danielle

      Peter Dinklage is my everything.

    • Frank_821

      Ah Peter Dinklage and the Hound looking good.

      actually Mr Dinklage is one of those actors you’re happy for the amount of real success he’s been experiencing in hollywood but did not expect he’d ever get. It says a lot that they casted him as Bolivar Trask in the next Xmen movie. That character for those who don’t know was an obsessed, bigited scientist who was not a dwarf

    • beebee10

      please blog this show!! that’s all I will say…..

      • Coolekat

        God I wish they would. The readership of this would skyrocket. All new group like when the TLo item on Serena Williams hit ESPN

    • mmebam

      I don’t know anything about kilts, but is it all supposed to be matchy matchy like that?

      • Sarah

        Usually there’s a dark waistcoat, but it’s okay. His surname is actually Irish, not Scots, although he is from Glasgow. He’s wearing what you’d call a “universal” tartan.

      • Lower L

        The kilt itself looks good. The hose look thin and cheap, and that shapeless wad of a sporran is a crime against Highland dress. If you’re wearing an ornate watch fob, then wear a sporran that doesn’t look like it was cut using stone tools and sewn with a bone needle. I would have preferred a different vest, because as it is, he’s a bit reminiscent of a hunting-lodge sofa.

      • MRC210

        if it’s formal, the jacket and vest are usually black, but that would be too much for the red carpet — like wearing a tux. A suit jacket such as the one he’s wearing is usually the same color as the vest, but not the kilt. He would have looked much sharper with a nice tweed jacket and matching vest.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Carice/Melisandre looks like a discarded housewife on “Mad Men”. Need to go looking to see if Jack Dempsy (and his torso) showed up…

    • jilly_d

      I snorted so violently at “ass capes” that I woke up the dog.

    • sugarkane105

      Everyone looks horrible. What the hell happened. And Dinklage’s pants are way too long.

      • lunchcoma

        Someone took a bunch of TV actors who don’t usually do red carpets and put them on one.

        It’s pretty telling that Dinklage and Clarke, who have more experience with this sort of thing, are among the more acceptable entries.

      • Fuchaforever

        I know! That’s exactly what I thought!

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Similar to my reaction when the Ladies of Downton were first starting to appear on the Red Carpet … my God, these people are clueless in the step and repeat.

    • Dandesun

      Sophie Turner has such potential to be a full on style queen. She’s tall and has great coloring.

      LOVE seeing Brienne being all girly. She’s one of my faves in the show.

    • alyce1213

      I love a man in a kilt, but I would not say The Hound is cleaned up. Needs some personal grooming — a trim around the ears and a neck shave — to earn “cleaned up.” I also think it’s too much tartan. I’d prefer a solid coat or vest, at the least.
      Dinklage’s pants are too long.
      What a collection!

      • Eric Stott

        He is one of those rare cases where the neckbeard looks kinda hot

    • Tricia Rose

      This seems like the local community theatre “red carpet” staging for their annual awards event at the Howard Johnson… act like stars already!

    • Dagney

      You know, Vanity Fair ran a story on stylists this month. It discussed the high dollar, high politics, and high drama that goes into dressing a ladystar. Some of the stylists featured in the article were responsible for more than a few horrifying looks we have seen here. (Julianne Moore in that yellow thing, for example)…The stylist era (as we know it today) began fairly recently, and so many of these ladies look utterly weird. I can’t help but wonder, are there ANY actresses who have a good grasp on taste, venue appropriateness, a reliable shop, and a reliable honest friend, who can GET THEIR OWN CLOTHES? Given the current climate with regard to recycling, re-purposing, driving a “clean” vehicle, etc….does ANYONE want to take this to the screen and the RC? What about vintage? This seems like a perfect solution for an up and coming ladystar who cannot get access to a decent outfit from a designer. I mean, Sophie Turner is a beautiful woman, and they tossed her into some crappy K-mart looking dress and I can’t even get started on those shoes, they are terrible! What if she went to a quality vintage shop, spent the afternoon investing in a unique dress from a decade that flatters, have the dress tailored….maybe she would look, heck, stunning? Original? Noticeable? I know these actresses have obligations and contracts and all that….but from where I sit, seems like they are paying stylists to make them look crappy.

      • Sonny

        What is crazy to me about so many styled celebrities is when they are wearing things that anyone who has seen three episodes of What Not to Wear or knows color “seasons” would know is unflattering. Obviously those aren’t the most fashion-forward sources of information, but shouldn’t a stylist have a basic idea of what shapes and colors are flattering for a particular person?

        Like Gwendoline, for example (don’t know if she actually has a stylist, but you see the same style problems with A-listers all the time). She’s pretty, the dress itself isn’t bad… but a pale, cool blonde with an athletic figure isn’t going to look good in a busy, black and white dress. She would look so much better in a simple, form-fitting dress in blue, pink, red…

        TL;DR: How does one get a job as a celebrity stylist?

        • MilaXX

          Like everything else in Hollywood, hustle and connections. Especially if you are a real stylist and not a wannabe looking for a come up like Kim K was when she was Brandy’s stylist.

    • Aldona Dye

      I kinda love that Alfie Allen’s hands are over his crotch. After what his character went through last season, I don’t blame him…

      • another_laura

        I giggle every time I see him standing with his hands over his crotch, which is apparently where they are most comfortable. *snort*

    • Sofia

      emilia clarke is so much more beauthiful than this. i am waiting for the day that some stylist will do right by her.

    • quiltrx

      Geez, most of the guys are “depressingly off-the-rack” and most of the girls are “trying entirely too hard, and failing.”

    • Stella Zawistowski

      I LOVE those ridiculous foil Barbie shoes. Just not with that dress.

    • decormaven

      For a show that has had some measure of success, I find it a bit sad to see its actors dressing at this level. Even the ones that managed to nab designer duds, this is hitting low ebb.

      • cocohall

        I don’t watch GoTs, but my sense was it was a fairly successful show. Looking at this parade of fashion faux pas makes me wonder if all the actors are working for scale.

        I’m not surprised that Dinklage is the best of the bunch. One, he is smart. Two, there is no “off the rack” situation that works for him. The tailor I go to has a client that is a little person. She has everything remade to suit her frame which is short, but with a larger framed torso.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      I prefer a solid coloured jacket and vest with a kilt, myself. Gwendolyn Christie often goes way too short, so I think the big flouncey bit was quite a good idea.

      I want Jack Gleeson to do a really sweet rom-com in their next hiatus because I am sick of seeing someone who is probably a perfectly lovely child and just feeling visceral loathing for him.

      • Chevalle

        Poor Jack. He’s stated that he’s not doing any more acting after Game of Thrones. Part of me wonders if it is because some people treat him differently due to the role.

        • AnnaleighBelle

          Oh, no! It’s really a testament to his ability that I want to punch him in the throat if I ever see him in person. I probably wouldn’t do it, but the desire would be there.

      • tereliz

        I think he needs to make friends with Tom Felton. Even better, they should be brothers in a film!

      • Suzanne Johnson

        No comment on the fashions, but in a commentary for Season 2 George R.R. Martin said that some fans of the show had threatened Jack Gleeson with physical violence (that’s how well he portrays the despicable Joffrey), and Martin had to remind those fans that Gleeson is an actor playing a role and is in actuality a perfectly decent fellow. “Please,” Martin said, “don’t hit him if you see him.”

        Unfortunately, I don’t have HBO, so I won’t see the next season until it comes out on DVD, but I’ve read the books so I know in general terms what is to come. It will be interesting to see how closely the TV series follows the events in the book in the coming season.

        • marlie

          That always baffles me, when fans are unable to separate the character from the actor or actress that plays them. I couldn’t understand all of the vitriol direted at the actress who played the wife on Breaking Bad. Sure, it’s a testament to how good an actor is, but fans need to get a grip sometimes.

        • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

          That is sad – he’s just a kid! Although we watched Batman Begins again the other night and it was quite a different experience seeing the infant Joffrey instead of a wide-eyed child!

    • Chevalle

      I will never cease to be amazed at how feminine Gwendoline Christie looks out of costume. There’s such a stark (tee hee) difference between her and Brienne’s image. She looks fabulous.

      • tereliz

        I love how girly she dresses in comparison to her character. I will never forget the scene in season 2 where she killed those three Stark soldiers who strung up those women for sleeping with Lannisters. She dispatched them in three seconds—with the full fury of Renly’s recent death and the blame she took for it behind her sword. Just amazing.

      • sagecreek

        Wait, that’s Brienne???! See, I’ve read all the books but have yet to see the show. I would not have guessed that.

        • AnnaleighBelle

          She looks VERY different in the show.

    • poorellensmith

      Wait a minute. Is Alfie Allen Lily’s brother? Super weird. I wonder how he feels about the video she made for that song, portraying him as a complete ass-wipe…

      • Rand Ortega

        Yep. Just looked it up.

      • MilaXX

        Yep and dad is the bad guy from the Robin Hood series with Richard Armitage.

    • marlie

      Most of the GoT cast would seriously benefit from a crash course on posing for the red carpet. The winners this round: Dinklage and Clarke. No surprise, they’re the ones with the most red carpet experience. Carice van Houten gets an honorable mention, though her dress is sitting a little too low on her bust, and it’s a little too long.

    • MmmmmmmmK

      Is that a pee dot on Joffrey’s trousers?

      • Gatto Nero

        (I saw that too …)

    • InterplanetJanetski

      The Khaleesi’s toes look swollen and red and hurty …

    • 3boysful

      Old bras and luggage lining be damned–I think Rose Leslie wins for the gals. Someone needs to give Peter Pilotto a one-way ticket to a deserted island with no sewing materials around.

    • tinyredlocks

      I love a man in a kilt.

    • Sam Smith

      Too much tartan on the Hound. I’m on team Tyrion and Arya, but agree that Arya’s skirt is horrible.

    • Rand Ortega

      The Dinklage is so fine, I don’t even worry about the hem length.
      Alfie Allen’s pants are so tight & ill fitting they make his feet look intriguingly big.
      Carice Van Houten looks strange. Maybe it’s because the belt makes her look like a bedspread sausage.
      From the neck up Sophie Turner looks delicious. I’d cut a bitch for that hair color. But the dress is overwhelming her.
      I wish Rose Leslie’s gown were emerald green.
      Nathalie Emmanuel wins the Demi Moore Cosplay Award for her portrayal of the Princess of Wonkyland.
      Rory McCann FOR. THE. WIN!

      • AnnaleighBelle

        Intriguingly big…hmmmm.

    • nannypoo

      That Rory guy is a bit too furry for my taste but I do love a man in a kilt so I hereby declare him hot.

      • anyalama

        Look up his Scotts Porridge commercials on YouTube. Giggidy.

        • nannypoo

          Aah. Much better.

        • Shawn EH

          His shoes are perfect for the kilt, love the whole tartan package!

        • SRQkitten

          Oh, thank you for that reference! He does clean up nice!

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        See if you can track down an old British series called The Book Group. He is very attractive in that!

        • Corsetmaker

          I liked the Book Group, I’d forgotten about that series.

      • Coolekat

        He just does it for me

      • Nicola Anna Molly Page

        I was at a screening for the Blackwater Bay episode in Glasgow and Rory came along, I have a picture of him hugging me :) very funny, VERY tall man. He told the best stories about being onset, like the time he backed out of a drinking session with Jason Momoa and felt like he shamed his Scottish ancestry for it!

        And yes, even though my husband was there, I swooned at Rory’s hotness ;)

        • SRQkitten

          This is one very green kitten here! What a cool experience,

    • icm

      “Ass cape” love it!

    • Wendi126

      If I were Dinklage sized I would be directly under the kilt

    • Trickytrisha

      Not too thrilled with most of these, but do love Carice’s dress. I covet the shoes – the color is amazing, just maybe too much for the dress. Gwendolyn’s character doesn’t leave her with much hair to work with unfortunately, but it’s always a treat to see here out of costume and in girly clothes. Maisie and Sophie would benefit from some gay wisdom. I’m still having trouble liking Emilia’s style.

    • OldPandaDayz

      My only quibble is with the commentary on Rose Leslie. I don’t think the the dress is anything particularly chic or interesting but it’s not bad and it fits her well. This is also an instance where I like the hair, makeup and accessories enough that it lifts the whole look for me, as opposed to say Sophie Turner’s look; which I’m not a fan of at all. I’d say the same for Khaleesi, but it’s slightly more disappointing because I’d expect more from Emilia Clarke style-wise.

    • AnnaleighBelle

      There’s something so world-weary and sexy about Peter Dinklage’s face, but I can’t resist a man in a kilt…

      Brienne looks lovely (but her expression made me think of Reba McEntire for some reason).

      • kimmeister

        I totally see Reba.

    • Jacob Bowen

      That “ass cape” is ridiculous. Without it I would have LOVED her outfit!

    • kimmeister

      What is that thing on Gwendoline’s chest? Is it . . . an animal? An owl’s head?

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        I was wondering that! Maybe a woodpecker?

      • BLauD

        After a search of a better front shot, I think a calla lily or something floral. I was prepared to guess horse head profile before though.

    • Pennymac

      Kilt! *drools*

      • Toby Wollin

        I love kilts too, but unless he got some sort of bulk tartan discount for the jacket and vest, it’s really tooooo much. It would have been much better with either a Prince Charlie jacket or a tweed sportcoat in one of the colors of the kilt. sheesh. Makes my eyes hurt.

        • Pennymac

          I could help him take some of it off……

        • MilaXX

          yes a solid colored vest or jacket would have improved that look

    • Judy_S

      Brienne wins this one in my eyes–she CAN handle too much skirt.
      Darn, I typed Briana first. This show needs to come back to help me with the correct misspellings of the names.

    • MilaXX

      Given her age, Maise is making that dress work. If she had Kiernan’s shoes it would be a homerun.

      No Hodor?

    • Noah

      I just kept waiting for one of them to like.

    • BackseatDriver

      Peter has impeccable tailoring because everything is custom. Always. He doesn’t have the option of rolling out of bed and into a boutique to buy something awful. But he is oh-so dignified, I would let him wear whatever he wants.

    • Pablo

      This just makes so sad, NONE of these people have any idea about what works for them

    • msdamselfly

      Can you imagine what the group photo looked like?

    • sarahmichelef

      It seems obvious to me that Dinklage’s tailoring is always so perfect BECAUSE HE HAS NO CHOICE. The other guys can say “enh, good enough.”

    • elemspbee

      ass cape–lmao!

    • Haley Buchanan

      How can such an attractive group of people look so haggard and so ill-fitted to their clothes?

    • bookish

      No Nikolaj makes me very sad.

    • http://kittysdrawings.com Esz

      They could have all done so much better – apart from Dinklage and McCann – the girls are all so pretty but they’ve just gone and missed the mark with their outfits. Such a shame!

    • http://www.momforless.com/ Crystal

      If Peter Dinklage can show up in a perfectly tailored suit, then no other male celebrity has any excuse not to do the same. Most designers aren’t creating things with his body type in mind, and he still brings it.

      • MilaXX

        I actually think Dinklage has an advantage because he will always have to have his clothing custom made. Many of the male celebs are wearing borrowed clothing.

        • Laylalola

          Yes, this. He really probably almost has no choice but to have everything custom made for the red carpet. But by God he fucking puts everyone else to shame.

    • prettybigkitty

      OK, so Lupita routinely matches her eye shadow to her outfits. And she is stunning. And can do no wrong. Why so bad with Sophie? And how does light blue eye shadow match a black and white dress? So very confused. . . .

      • little_miss_strange

        Y’know…. this. I agree with it. Lupita loves her matchy eyeshadow and TLo always love Lupita, seems like a double standard here. Do you have to be a Kenyan goddess to wear matching eyeshadow?

        • MilaXX

          There are instances and ways to make matchy eye shadow work. One of the simplest is to find coordinating shades in the color family. Miley did it once with a green shadow. Lupita’s colors besides looking fabulous on her face where never the exact shade.

      • OhSheila

        There’s a light blue/turquoise in the dress. It’s around the black “leaves” or whatever they are.

      Aww, so tough on little Arya, she’s so adorable though. So different from her character.

      I WANT TO FUCK PETER DINKLAGE. Just… he needs to stop. I can no longer function in my day to day life. Because of his hotness.

      Wait wait wait. Why is this an ass cape and not hostess pants? What’s the difference? I’m not trying to be a smart ass; I just don’t know hostess pants from a hole in the ground and I remember TLo called someone’s similar-ish outfit “hostess pants.” Is it the length of the pants?

      I love a lot of their faces, but they all dress like this is Season 1 and they only make 10k per episode.

      My crush on Peter Dinklage only grows. Seriously, if he can find a good tailor/custom designer to fit his tricky proportions, no other male star has a good excuse. LOVE that vest. Rory McCann comes in second place for representing my motherland with pride.

      That Pilotto is unbearably FUG.

      Not so sure about her dress, but Gwendoline Christie looks gorgeous.

      What I want to know is where is Charles Dance? He has been doing a phenomenal job as Tywin. He was a devastatingly handsome young man (See “The Jewel in the Crown,” if you don’t believe me), and I find him just as devastatingly attractive as a mature (ahem) man. Also, he and Tyrion are the only characters in Kings Landing not intimidated by the loathsome Joffrey. Tywin’s handling of the boy king is masterful.

        His scenes with Joffrey are worth the price of the DVD or HBO. Can’t wait for season 4.

      Oh my. The Hound. Not my usual type but my heart’s all a pitter patter for the big manly man in plaid. (Head scratcher that.)

      No idea who Rory McCann is, but I want his kilt.
