    1. I don’t know what to make of this “announcement” Val. I click on the links and there’s nothing in pre-production.

  1. It’s gotten to the point that I’d rather see classic episodes of The Virginian than new episodes of A Game Of Thrones. Speaking of which, the only actor I can see playing am older Trampas is AGOTs Iain Glen. I can think of no young actor playing a young Trampas. Dougie was too good to have anybody fill his shoes.
