Chalk up another one to the fans. Esteemed British actor, and fan favorite, Charles Dance has been cast as Tywin Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones according to Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune.
Charles Dance has been cast as nobleman Tywin Lannister in HBO’s upcoming epic “Game of Thrones.”
A wealthy lord and head of one of the most powerful clans in the realm, Tywin is one of the most memorable characters in the series of George R.R. Martin novels that begins with “Game of Thrones.” Tywin is father of the despised Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and the calculating twins Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey).
Winter Is Coming: Another slam dunk piece of casting and another assist goes to the Thrones fans. As Ryan says in her post, Dance will bring a steely resolve and a commanding presence to the role of Tywin. Can’t wait to see him starring daggers on screen!
