George R. R. Martin took time to discuss more of the cast. This time around the theme is Lannister, as he talks about Charles Dance as Lord Tywin Lannister, Eugene Simon as Lancel Lannister, and the horrific knight serving their house, Gregor Clegane, played by Conan Stevens. At the end of the post, we are told that the character of Tyrek Lannister, another squire to the king, won’t be cast, at least not in the first season. More fodder for FaBio’s fabled axe.
Hear Me Roar: Now, I know you have by now been thouroughly informed about these choices as you’re following our blog, but it is still interesting to read what George has to say about them, and reflect a bit more on the fantastic casting job.
