My problem is, many of the characters look the same to me. Half of me believes that HBO has put one over on all of us and hired the same actor to play different characters. (That would be a ridiculous con that would take quite a bit to really pull off.) For some of these characters, the only way I can figure out who is who is based upon who they are interacting with or where they are.
Two old guys with white hair and beards. Who is who? Who knows.
The hair length somewhat gives it away, and their locations are a dead giveaway, but these actors look identical to me. I don't understand why they would cast two actors who look so similar. The actor playing Renley Baratheon also kind of resembled these two.
There are also a number of women with long, dark hair and similar features, and more old men with beards. I don't know if I'm just getting old, or if it is the dullness of the costuming and lighting, or what, but I'm having the worst time trying to remember and figure out who everyone is.
Am I alone?
