Ideal Casting For “Game Of Thrones: Robert’s Rebellion” Movie Or Mini-Series

Part III Of III On Robert’s Rebellion: The Ideal Casting For A (Potential) Movie Or (Ideally) Mini Series On The Events

In Part I we covered all the events that led to and occurred during Robert’s Rebellion.

In Part II we showcased artwork from the pivotal moment of the Rebellion: When Robert Killed Rhaegar!

Many fans, us included, have stated interest on having this epic storyline in Westeros History turned into an HBO Mini Series of its own. A movie could work but wouldn’t cover all the important event in 2-3 hours.

Eddard Stark, “The Quiet Wolf”

Choice 1: James McAvoy

James McAvoy as Eddard Stark the Quiet Wolf

A big name for a big role. Ned Stark is one of the main characters in the story, and McAvoy would properly portray the future Warden of the North.

Choice 2: Sebastian Croft as Eddard Stark

Or maybe Sebastin Croft, as he is portraying the young Ned Stark in Season 6 flashbacks and could reprise the role.

UPDATE: Since Sebastian Croft ended up playing Ned as a child, he could be used in Flashback sequences where him and young Robert Baratheon are getting trained in the Eyrie under the tutelage of Jon Arryn.

Choice 3: Robert Aramayo as Eddard Stark

He Portrayed Young Ned in the Tower of Joy Flashback Sequence, and his performance was praised by both fans and critics. It would make sense for him to reprise the role throughout the entire Rebellion.

Robert Baratheon

Ideal Choice: Tom Hardy

Need we say more… One and only valid choice to portray the usurper.

Honorable Mention: Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill could be another viable candidate as shown with this fan made depiction.

Lyanna Stark, “The Wolf Maid”

Choice 1: Jessica Brown Findlay

Jessica Brown Findlay as Lyanna Stark the Wolf Maid

Lyanna Stark, betrothed to Robert Baratheon, would need to be portrayed by an actress that can encompass her beauty and her fierce behavior being a stark.

Choice 2: Maisie Williams

Maisie Williams as Lyanna Stark the Wolf Maid
Why Not? She already plays Arya Stark, who is described in the books, by her father Ned, to look and behave like her aunt. By the time the series ends, and this story gets into production, Maisie will be old enough to portray the character beautifully. She already knows how to act like a Stark.

Choice 3: Eva Green

Eva Green as Lyanna Stark the Wolf Maid
She may be a bit older than the character is, but she could portray the fierce yet beautiful Stark sister in a way only she can.

Choice 4: Katie McGrath

Another solid choice to go with.


Choice 5: Aisling Franciosi

She portrayed a dying Lyanna Stark in a Bed of Blood in the Season 6 Finale of Game of Thrones. Having her reprise the pivotal role in the story would definitely work.
