Everyone is on pins and needles, holding their breath until the fateful moment when the end of Game of Thrones arrives. Fans have been reassured however that it will not really be the ‘end,’ since the HBO network is already in full production of the first prequel series of the show, which is a spin-off! The masses are relieved…
The entire cast unveiled
The American channel has just unveiled the entire cast of the series. Naomie Watts had already been confirmed as the lead role. Announced are Georgie Henley (Lucy in Narnia), Jamie Campbell Bower (Twilight and Harry Potter), Shelia Atim, Tony Regbo, Ivanno Jeremiah (Doctor Who) and Alex Sharp who have joined the cast with the famous actress.
If these names don’t ring a bell, or they barely do, don’t worry this is normal. This is an intentional decision by HBO to take little known actors that we can get to know throughout the series. They want to make them as well-known to the general public as Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington now are.
No filming date has yet been released, even the title is still unknown. All we know is that the series will be set thousands of years before the original events. We should know more about the Stark, Lannister and Targaryen families. And of course the White Walkers, hopefully at least.
