Well so far we’ve looked at possible casting choices for a Lannister, a Stark and a Targaryen. Let’s head back to the Lannister clan and take a look at the Kingslayer himself, Jaime Lannister. The role demands someone who can be simultaneously likable and despicable. Obviously they are going to want to cast a pretty boy, but one who can actually act. Let’s take a look at a few possible choices.
Whomever they decide to cast needs to have a lot of range. Jaime is one of the most interesting characters in the series and it will be interesting to see who they cast and how he plays him. The role of Jaime, I think, lends itself to casting an unknown. Someone who has the talent but isn’t a familiar face. Someone who can just inhabit the role and be Jaime Lannister, The Kingslayer.
