Same. The Summer Islanders are black, didn't expect the Quartheens to be that too :p
Exactly. Besides, when you think rich merchant types with rings on every finger, somehow one thinks of guys with turbans on their heads. But maybe that's more what the Free Cities are supposed to be, though I always figured them to be more European.
The funny thing is that in the books Xaro's not even described that well, so it really could go either way. I checked after I found out who was playing him, heh. Pyat Pree was also in the list somewhere, but he seemed like he does in the books, I'd say. Just add some blue lips and a hood on him and you got him, lol...
And I don't think I spoiled anything, except for the TV shows actors, I guess. XD Oh and the color of Pyat Pree's lips, but that's no secret once you get to know the guy, he he.
