EW is reporting that Ciarán Hinds has been cast as Mance Rayder, The King Beyond the Wall, in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Hinds who you may recognize from Rome, The Woman in Black, There Will Be Blood, or as goat loving Aberforth Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:Part 2 is more than up to the job. An excellent actor, we expect Hinds to give Rayder all he’s got. Rayder’s main objective in uniting the Wildling clans of the north is to attack the wall. Hinds is sure to lead this attack with gusto in the upcoming season. Let us know what you think of this casting decision in the comments.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO on March 31, 2013
