The Game of Thrones writers decided to change Asha Greyjoy's name to Yara on the show—perhaps to avoid confusion with Osha, the Wildling guardian of Rickon Stark. But this name isn't all that's been changed. Actress Gemma Whelan has Asha's self-assured and rough-tongued attitude down pat, but she doesn't completely look the part.
So spake Martin: Theon turned to give her an appraising glance. He liked what he saw. Ironborn, he knew at a glance; lean and longlegged, with black hair cut short, wind-chafed skin, strong sure hands, a dirk at her belt. Her nose was too big and too sharp for her thin face, but her smile made up for it. – A Clash of Kings
Show accuracy: 4/10 – I've given Asha black hair cut short, and made her face leaner and harder, with a downturned and more pointed nose.
