pplwkp asked you:
I agree that lyanna should be young like anna popplewell but she looks too sweet: I always imagined Lyanna with a little bit more edge to her, kinda like Eva Green (even though she is too old for a teen). But since Arya is said to resemble Lyanna, shouldn’t the person people choose look like Maisie Williams? At least a little bit.
That’s one of the reasons why I like Hanna Mangan Lawrence for it, is that there is a superficial resemblance. Green and the others don’t do it for me partly because of that, as well as the age. Lyanna’s personality had an edge, maybe even more than we’ve been told told at this point in ASOIAF, but from all accounts, she was beautiful and people who didn’t truly know her (like Robert) didn’t see that edge. So I think she probably looked deceptively sweet and typical until you got to know her.
