While the lack of casting news is annoying, it does give us more time to discuss the potential candidates for certain roles. We’ve already covered Ramsay Snow, Mance Rayder and Edmure Tully. This time we will look at one of the prominent female characters that will join the story in season three. That would be Olenna Tyrell née Redwyne, more often referred to as the Queen of Thorns. The Queen of Thorns is the grandmother to Margaery and Loras Tyrell and she comes to King’s Landing following the marriage pact between the Lannister and Tyrell houses. Tower of the Hand has her description as “tiny and wizened with white hair”. Let’s take a look at some top choices for the role!
