PronunciationEdit

Although, when reading the books I pronounced the name "Ol-enna", it appears in the previews/behind the scenes vlogs for S3, the name is pronounced "Olly-ana".  Anyone care to comment?120.18.63.12 22:50, February 4, 2013 (UTC)

They've only pronounced it two times in the vlogs; once Rigg sort of said it like "Olly-ana" but that's her natural british accent; the more recent trailer has Tyrion in-character say her name, and it sounds more like "Oh-lenna". This will get sorted out once the first episode airs, or if we get a character-focus featurette before that.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 15:42, February 5, 2013 (UTC)

Opening quoteEdit

Let's discuss the quote. I'm not really a fan of having a quite long part of conversation as an opening quote. In general, it should be pretty concise: brief, yet including all important information about the character. Something that describes the character as a whole. But it should be brief, one or two sentences.

Now, I disagree with the User:The Dragon Demands when he said that Olenna's just humoring Cersei when she says: "We mothers do what we can to keep our sons from the grave. But they do seem to yearn for it. We shower them with good sense, and it slides off like rain off a wing." Sure Olenna is talking about Cersei's relationship with Joffrey, but the line also describes Olenna's feelings about male rulers in general and how she feels about women's status in the realm. If anyone has a better quote than that they are welcome to replace it. Or better yet, discuss it here. --Martell (talk) 17:45, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

Well I didn't mean to shut you down there; I hope we get a better quote in Olenna's upcoming confrontation with Tywin (as seen in the trailers).--The Dragon Demands (talk) 17:51, April 24, 2013 (UTC)
Hope so. I'm not 100% happy about the "we mothers" quote, I must admit, but it definitely works better than a part of conversation. Like I said, if we get a better quote, fine, but at the meantime I would like to replace all the "conversation quotes" with reasonably short lines if possible. --Martell (talk) 18:21, April 24, 2013 (UTC)
