I have one question. I've posted a link to a picture. Does anyone know the name of the man standing on Alexander's right? I know (from left to right) it's Hephaistion, Perdiccas, Nearchus, Ptolemy, Cassander, Alexander...but who's the young man at the very end?

That's Philotas, son of Parmenion, played by Joseph Morgan. He's also on this still - standing between Parmenion and Alexander.

I don't think the one in the first picture (the one that AphroditeIncarnate showed to us) is Philotas, but I don't know who it is either.

Alexandros_19 is right, it is not the same person. It is not Philotas.

I've always believed it was, since I don't recall him elsewhere in the banquet scene, and all the Companions seem to be close by Alexander in this still. And he's blonde, and similar in build.... Confused
Admittedly, though, Joseph Morgan is wearing a laurel wreath in this scene when he's being interviewed in the documentary Becoming Alexander. Is the lad in the pic an unknown extra then? Embarassed Mustn't do him a disservice. Better go and check out the scene again.
