Faith Militant’s inspiration and Ice and Fire dream cast

[Faith Militant based on the crusading orders?]

Yes, albeit loosely.

[Ice and Fire dream cast?]

I had a few actors in mind for particular parts when I was finishing up A GAME OF THRONES, along about 1995. Unfortunately, all those actors are twelve years older now, and the characters aren't. My original dream cast are likely all too old for the roles for which I first envisioned them.
