“This was a face such as I had never seen before, even in the most fanciful of dreams, a face that was, in its way, a work of art. For it was light and dark, night and day, this world and the Otherworld. On the left side, the face of a youngish man, the skin weathered but fair, the eye gray and clear, the mouth well formed if unyielding in character. On all the right side, extending from an undrawn mark down the exact center, an etching of line and curve and feathery pattern, like the mask of some fierce bird of prey. An eagle? A goshawk? No, it was, I thought, a raven, even as far as the circles about the eye and the suggestion of predatory beak around the nostril. The mark of the raven. If I had not been so frightened, I might have laughed at the irony of it. The pattern extended down his neck and under the border of his leather jerkin and the linen shirt he wore beneath it. His head was completely shaven, and the skull, too, was colored the same, half-man, half-wild creature; some great artist of the inks and needle had wrought this over many days, and I imagined the pain must have been considerable.”

13 Comments to “Bran”

  1. Nice work! great blog

  2. I think all these suggestions are way too old. I’d like to throw Andrew Garfield’s name into the mix. Hayden Christenson is another possibility.

  3. A lot of good suggestions. : )

  4. Perhaps someone Irish like Cillian Murphy or (dare I say it) Colin Farrell seeing as Sevenwaters is very Celtic. Or Taylor Lautner would look the part. And what about Vin Diesel – it does say youngish. I did have someone in mind for this a few years back when reading the book but can’t remember now.

  5. Great to finally see Karl Urban somewhere here. Although I think he would be someone else than Bran. Hmmm….

  6. Patrick Nuo is listed elsewhere he’d make a good Bran.

  7. Edward Norton, because we know he looks good shaved, can bulk up, and actually can act. It seems pretty clear to me.

  8. Fine way of telling, and good post to obtain facts concerning my presentation subject matter, which i aam going to convey
    in institution of higher education.

  9. How about Stephen Amell?

  10. I’d like to suggest Jonas Armstrong!
