Hi everybody, I just joined this community. I've started reading  the Chronicles of Lymond and I'm so passionate about these books that I feel the need to share my obsession with other people :) - I read The Game of Kings and Queen's Play and I'm now onto the third book.   The books are not easy to read (and English is not my mother-tongue! I'm Italian) but are truly fascinating.  At the moment I seem to spend a lot of time thinking about who could play the part of Lymond if a film was ever made. Any idea?

Hello! :)
Another non-native speaker who adores the books. Welcome!

I've thought about this for a while now, but I really can't think of any actor who I think could portray Lymond... actually I'm inclined to believe that he could never be transferred to screen anyway. They would have to shorten and change dialogue and stories and I'd probably hate it. But people have said this about Lord of the Rings, too, so... ;)

Well, they would have to cut a lot of stuff and maybe the final result would not be very satisfactory as you say, perhaps a mini-series would be better.
I like your icon BTW :)

Now a mini-series might work better than a film... Yes.

(We need more Lymond icons!)
