Game of Thrones Season 4’s has Finished Filming, Octavia Alexandru’s Role Revealed. HBO‘s Game of Thrones: Season 4 has finished its production and filming duties (on November 21, 2013 precisely) and speculation over Octavia Alexandru’s role on the show has ended. Now its up to the people behind the scenes in post-production to edit everything together, add in CGI effects, and make everything resplendent. Shouldn’t be hard, they have had three seasons practice.

Season 4 spoilers are below so read at your own risk.

It has been revealed that Octavia Alexandru will be playing a character. The character comes from A Song of Ice and Fire: A Dance of Dragons. Alexandru will be playing “The Child of the Forest.” This character eventually plays a important role in the narrative of A Dance of Dragons and with a certain character’s plot line.

It has been speculated that Alexandru will be playing The Child of the Forest called Leaf. Since that The Child of the Forest is the most important, it makes since that she would be cast and cast first above all the rest.

On Leaf’s background and physical appearance:

She was born in the time of the dragon and walked the world of men for 200 years to watch, listen and learn. Exactly where she went and what she did she did not mention. She might be walking still, but her legs were sore and her heart was weary, so she turned her feet for home.

She has a woman’s voice, high and sweet, with a strange music in it like none [deleted] has ever heard and a sadness that he thought might break his heart. Leaf has a name when she is needing one.

She is one of the children of the forest. She has nut-brown skin that is dappled like a deer’s with paler spots, and large ears. She wears a cloak of leaves. She has large liquid gold and green eyes which are slitted like a cat’s eyes (that is, with vertical rather than round pupils). Her hair is a tangle of brown, red and gold, autumn colours, with vines and twigs and withered flowers woven through it. [deleted] thinks that from far away Leaf looks no older than himself or one of his sisters, but close at hand she seems far older.
