In Game of Thrones, Joseph Mawle (Odysseus) plays Benjen Stark, brother of Ned Stark (Sean Bean). Sean Bean played Odysseus in the movie Troy. See more »


The siege is supposed to last a decade, yet Evander (a little boy) is shown to always have the same age (it is said he is 9 years old during the later episodes). We meet him in the first episodes, when he technically should have been either unborn or a baby. See more »

User Reviews

Are people in the BBC all mad ?
27 July 2018 | by artmadalenaSee all my reviews

I just couldn't believe what I was watching in Netflix. This series is so wrong, so outrageously disrespectful to Homer's immortal Illiad that I had to write this review. The directors-writers-producers-whatever and whoever they were (-like a gang-) seem to have deliberately chosen to disfigure the masterpiece - perhaps the highest work of literature ever created. A cultural murder was, apparently, perpetrated in this "Troy-The Fall of a City". Just about every actor is miscast, starting with Paris/Alexander himself who does not look any bit "in love " with Helen at all! As he prepares to go back to Troy I got a feeling that Helen hid herself in that coffin out of boredom, not really for love - neither she, nor he seems to have been taken by the turmoil of an intense passion. Paris is such a modern boy ! Does he like soccer? Videogames? And Helen, though quite pretty, could not possibly be "...the most beautiful woman of the world" promised by Aphrodite. Ah!... Aphrodite promised. But didn't deliver... A certain discomfort invades the viewer from the start as he is confronted with so much bad acting, bad casting, bad timing in the events. Sorry to say that - but it MUST be said - Achilles SHOULD be someone hairy and blond - like a lion, as Homer explicitly wrote in his story. Achilles was "golden" like a lion! Nestor, an important character in the Illiad looks just like a street dweller that I see everyday somewhere in Rio de Janeiro where I live. Why this ? BBC managed to offend Homer, the Greeks, and all of humanity who read this immortal tale of war and love. AS some reviewers already noted, this awful TV series made the movie "Troy" (which contains many mistakes) with Brad Pitt, Eric Bana and lovely Diane Kruger shine like a jewel forever!!!!
