James Hibberd of Entertainment Weekly has just revealed exclusively that the role of Mance Rayder has finally been cast – with none other than Ciarán Hinds!
You will of course know him best from Rome, where he played Julius Caesar. After Tobias Menzes (as Edmure), this is the second Rome alumnus joining the cast.
Hear Me Roar: Wow, that one got me excited! When other candidates and actors we speculated about definitely dropped out, I felt bad, but HBO managed to get a big name for the role in the end, and one that is, for my money, a great fit.
