So, yeah, casting.

We’ve talked about how this works before. Casting is one of the hardest, most important things we do. Getting the right actors into the right roles is critical and complicated and hard.

Daniel Abraham, The Dragon's Path

“We say that flowers return every spring, but that is a lie. It is true that the world is renewed. It is also true that that renewal comes at a price, for even if the flower grows from an ancient vine, the flowers of spring are themselves new to the world, untried and untested.

Daniel Abraham, The Dragon's Path
