even though lana did such a good job as young regina, i feel like not casting a 16-18 year old for the part really did a lot to downplay just how horrifying the situation regina was put in really was. imagine someone of the accurate age being cast and playing out those flashbacks in 1x18, and how much more in perspective things would’ve been. the actual closeness in age to snow. the grossness of her getting proposed to by king leo. i feel like a lot of those ppl who deny any abuse by king leo would benefit from seeing what those scenes were actually supposed to look like
Im not one to defend men but if a man had kept a women captive like that dragon heaux did to the fuckboy in the north people would be screaming bloody murder&probably some shit about stockholm syndrome. Yet because its some random white woman who thinks she's the shit&Jon apparently likes to stare at her while being held captive people think this is some kind of epic romance story. Like what were d&d thinking? Then again some people romanticize drogo/dany so who actually knows what people think?
