A new video from Game of Thrones has premiered live to the world at San Diego Comic-con. The video introduces a slew of new cast members for the various characters we’ll see in season three! Here follows a slightly *spoilery* account of the video, which you can watch below.
Among the characters are the Queen of Thorns, Shireen Baratheon, Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion, the Reeds, Blackfish Tully, Missandei, and more. It’s very interesting to note that despite speculation, the Reeds were not in fact cut, but were rather being saved for later seasons. To many who have read the books, it seemed as though the characters of Meera and Jojan Reed were being replaced by the character of Osha (played by Natalia Tena- who played Tonks in the Potter films!). Fortunately the writers have bigger plans!
Who is your favourite new character that was introduced? Anyone you were hoping to see that didn’t make it into the video yet? This writer is personally very much looking forward to the scenes with Beric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr, and readers of the books will know why!
