The good, the bad, and the downright bizarre.

  • Petyr Baelish (Aiden Gillen) - I appreciate that he's trying to do a Welsh accent since he's from the Vale and the Vale is almost certainly based upon Wales. At first I was confused - why does his Welsh accent sound so...weird? Then I realised, he's goddam Irish.
  • Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) - the acting is good but the accent is hilariously bad. Americans just need to stop trying already.
  • Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) - the least well disguised Northern Irish accent I've ever heard.
  • Davos (Liam Cunningham) - An Irish man doing a (pretty decent) Geordie accent despite that fact that nobody else in the series has a Georgie accent. The character is supposed to be from King's Landing and everyone else from there just takes on a generic south east accent. What's so special about Davos, hmm?
  • Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) - One of the few cast members whose first language is not English and he does a better job of his accent than the rest of them put together.
  • Ser Jorah (Iain Glen) - Two words out of his mouth and I knew he was a compatriot of mine. A short google search later revealed that he is, indeed, from Edinburgh. His south-east accent is pretty much awful.
  • Ygritte (Rose Leslie) - What can I say, she's great with her accent.
