There's a whole bracket for that competition. But I actually like the way they've handled him in the show aside from the recasting. He's like this shadowy scary menace running around killing and pillaging. His presence is felt far more than he's seen. He's like a bogeyman. (I don't think he was seen much in the books anyway. He rarely directly contacts the POV characters)
