Don't cry, Pint-o-Mild, let's pretend I said Brad Pitt circa "Legends of the Fall" instead, OK? 


 Okay, LOL, I can live with that one!  Cheers, Dark Mare smile

I can see what you mean about Sean Bean too, MrsMartin.  I really like Sean Bean, so I wouldn't like to see him as Stephen Carrington, just because I so disliked the character, but, then again, maybe it would help me see him in a different light? 

Sometimes a dislikeable character can become likeable if they're portrayed by an actor I like.

Personally, I have always imagine Sean Bean in his Sharpe days, as Stephan Carrington.

For Stephen Carrington, how about Cary Elwes in his Dread Pirate Roberts era ("The Princess Bride") -- minus the mask, of course?

 

 


 Oh no, Dark Mare!  You're going to make me cry! 

The Princess Bride is one of my all-time favourite films and I absolutley LOVE Cary Elwes, but I hated Stephen Carrington.  I'm clearly incredibly biased, but I can see where you're coming from.

You are so right. Francis is definitely more Sebastian Flyte than Charles Ryder ("Brides Head Revisited).

My goodness that is funny because I have never seen that thread. I do agree with the others choice of Richard Armitage for Ross, he is the right height, he has the light blue eyes, I quite like his voice and he can brood really well, if only he was a little younger. If I was playing that game though, I would have chosen Anthony Andrews for Francis, instead of Jeremy Irons.

My other choice would be Robert Shaw as he was more heavily built....

Jack Farthing looks very aristocratic to me and not at all like the grandson of a blacksmith. If I was to go strictly on the description in the books and pick from any generation of actors, the actor that I think of as George is Oliver Reed.

Jack Farthing seems too slender to be a credible George Warleggan. WG must have mentioned the thickness of George's neck about 50 times. I wonder whether the casting was done with the staircase at the Red Lion Inn in mind. 


 I agree, Dark Mare, physically he is not right at all.  George's neck is mentioned over and over again!  He's like a bull!

Certainly a good actor and acts well so not his fault but it's much too much of a departure from the books for me, whereas George in the original series was excellent especially when you compare how opposite in nature he was and could be in other films and off screen...smile

Love to hate him! I know he seems a bit "nice" at the beginning - having chosen to leave out his father's character, Nicholas, Debbie Horsfield seems to have given some of Nicholas's softer characteristics to George. But you can already see him begin to get nastier. Though Ralph Bates was a lovely sneering nasty, I felt he didn't have so much of a "journey" (oooh, I hate that term!)

Well, here's the new George Warleggan; love him or hate him?
