Well, I picture him in black and silver. So far, I've only come up with a concept for his shield. Would anyone like to help? What do you think he should look like? :)

I'd say all black to begin with, he's supposed to be completely mysterious and not necessarily human. I love the idea of a snake on the shield although it is different from the book, it would make Aslan appearing on the shield even more incredible and sybolic, an I've left the which and taken on Aslan idea. Once we know who he is I'd say silver's a great idea. His clothes (when imprisoned) would look really good if they weren't Narnian/ Telmerine looking at all we want as few clues as to who he is as possible. When he returns to Narnia his clothes should be brightly coloured and as Narnian as Possible. I might do some drawings. Anybody else?

He should be merry but also slightly vage as if hes nnot really there ( i mean in the underworld.) What do you think ? I've allways pictured him with brown hair looking very like King Caspian. Please Comment I'd like to Know what others think. By the way im from the UK . Sorry that was just random.

Polly that UK comment was random, but I agree with you about his attitude. There is really great drawing idea for Rilian is Characters, have a look.

I think you're right. All black, then some silver. I'm glad you like the idea of a snake. I knew it differed from the book, but I think Mr. Lewis would like the imagery. (As you said the transformation would be even more impressive.)

I think Rilian's attitude should be that of the apparently kind, but terribly insincere, and slightly mad host. The sort of fellow who seems almost normal, but then there's just something about him to put you on your guard.

I think his hair should be black. We don't want him to bear too much of a resemblance to Caspian, but then again, we won't see his face 'til after we know who he is, so perhaps......

In the book they see Rillian's face except for when he is in armor, maybe you're thinking of the BBC version where Rillian has a mask.

You're right, I am. Well that does present some problems, doesn't it?

I know this is a slightly strange idea but perhaps his face could change somehow once he remembers Narnia, as if it's not just his mind but his body remembering too, this way his not having a mask wouldn't present so many problems. I know it would be a challenge for whoever did the make up but hey they created all sorts of creatures it would give them some thing to think about!

He should not look like he does on the old book cover! He looks like he stole Luke's Jedi garb! ;)) Please, producers, be original and interesting! Bring some Telmarine influence to his before-the-witch clothes and some of her influence on his bewitched clothes. :)

Oh yes, the bottom one is what I have but I pictured Rilian as the top black one- please no, that's Luke's look! ;))

Hmm...maybe I will have to try to figure out what boys in Narnia wear too... ;)

I have an objection to my own idea. Or rather, my Mother's objection. If there's a snake on the shield, won't it identify the LGK as the Serpent? *scratches head

Hmm.... good point. Perhaps we should just stick with the book and have him all in black. It's a shame but there we are. Most people watching it will have read the book any way and as the children are focusing on Harfang Maybe in would go unnoticed but still better to be safe. I loved the snake idea, it would be really good if we could somehow use it even if not on the shield.
