Well it’s not long now at all until the new season of Game of Thrones kicks off. April 1st to be exact.
Up til now there hasn’t been an awful lot of information released to whet the fans appetites. Of course they released the names of the actors playing all the new characters for the new season, but asides from a couple of behind-the-scenes teasers, there hasn’t been much else for us to get too excited about. Until now…
HBO have released official photos of some of the new characters, and I must say they’re great. We’ve known about the actors playing these characters for some time now, but to actually see me in the flesh is another matter entirely.
Let’s kick off with Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) himself, accompanied of course by none other than Melisandre (Carice Van Houten).
Next up we have Brienne the Beauty (Gwendoline Christie).
Stannis’ right-hand man, Davis the Onion Knight (Liam Cunningham).
The father of Theon, and Lord of the Iron Islands, Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide).
How’s that for starters? Satisfied? Stay posted for more shots when I get them…
