Victarion Australian ?

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Well yes, that first - had Roy Dorice really run out of accents so badly that he had to make Victarion Greyjoy australian ? That really is bizarre. Why not scandinavian or even russian?

And secondly, there are so many characters in these books that someone must be keeping a record of how they sound. How come the producer, who together with Roy Dotrice, must have had a reference file of how everyone sounds, didn't say "Hang on Roy, that sounds nothing like Xxxx !"

I'd love an explanation of why Dany goes from young english to old irish; Bran goes from child english to child westcountry; Stannis goes from quick northern to slow northern; Cersei goes from english to welsh; Melisandre goes from exotic siren to girly french and Strong Belwas covers an entire spectrum.

But now we've established that voices can change willy-nilly, can Victarion PLEASE not have an accent that couldn't have existed at the time.

I know Roy does a lot of voices but couldn't he do Cockney for some characters, or Spanish (as I reckon Dorn is Spain)
