HBO has confirmed the casting of the remainder of the main cast for the Game of Thrones pilot. Once again, this confirmation comes via Mo Ryan of the Chicago Tribune. It should come as no surprise that we were spot on in all our guesses.
Another day, another round of “Game of Thrones” casting.
Over the weekend, as I noted in this story, news emerged that “Stargate Atlantis” actor Jason Momoa has been cast as horse lord Khal Drogo in the epic saga “Game of Thrones.” “GoT” began filming its pilot in Northern Ireland this week (other locations include Scotland and Morocco).
HBO confirmed the casting for several other roles in the drama today:
-Jamie Campbell-Bower (of “The Twilight Saga: New Moon”) as Waymar Royce
-Joseph Mawle as Benjen Stark
-Richard Ridings as Gared
-Ron Donachie as Ser Rodrik Cassel
-Donald Sumpter as Maester Luwin
-Ian McNeice as Ilyrio Mopatis
Winter Is Coming: Nice work to all who puzzled these out. Most of them were figured out so long ago I don’t remember who got what, but good job to all! Now to get to work on the cast list page…
UPDATE: Jay Tomio at BSCreview also got word from HBO of the confirmations. He also added Aimee Richardson as being confirmed by HBO to be playing Myrcella.
