Owen Teale returning for season 4
By Ours is the Fury on in Casting.

According to a recent interview with WalesOnline, Owen Teale will be returning to the role of Alliser Thorne for the fourth season of Game of Thrones.

While discussing his role in Passion Play, Teale confirmed he would be filming season four once the play’s run ended. Passion Play runs at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London until August 3rd.

Of his part on Game of Thrones, Teale had this to say:

“He’s a ruthless sergeant major-type character. He’s a twisted character who’s been very  damaged in the past. He’s great to play and there’s some fantastic dialogue.”

The antagonistic master-at-arms Alliser Thorne was last seen in Season 1 Episode 8, “The Pointy End,” and last mentioned in Season 1 Episode 9, “Baelor,” when Lord Commander Mormont explains he is sending him to King’s Landing with the hand of a wight.

Ours is the Fury: Fantastic news! I’m a big fan of the actor, so I’m very glad he’s back.

    A pleasant surprise. I figured since it had been so long since we saw him the show might have to come up with an original character to play Thorne;s part in the books.

    Fantastic news! I was really hoping to hear this, Jon’s story in the latter half of ASOS and ADWD wouldn’t be the same without Thorne, and no one else could play him like Owen Teale.

    I’m so happy right now!

    I was just rereading a Jon chapter this morning from AGoT this morning hoping he’d be back for season four. *someone* needs to give Jon a hard time about killing Qoren and switching allegiances. And I hope Janos finally shows up to get his neck snipped

    Ian Whyte IS the Mountain. I will bet anyone that this is a fact.

    Owen’s scene with Jon and Sam where he describes dealing with the cold North of the wall was one of the best scenes of the series. Right up there with Jaime in the tub and Cat at the Red Wedding.

    Yay! I loathe Alliser Thorne, but Teale did such a tremendous job that his confrontations with Jon will be great fun to watch!

    No joke–was watching a re-run of Midsomer Murders recently and the episode featured Owen Teale. Thrones alums are always popping up on that show–it’s like playing a strange version of Where’s Waldo.

    I think he will take over as Interim lord commander, instead of introducting a new character to the Tv show . No Donal Noye, Alliser will be the one that dies and Jon takes over.

    This is extremely good news :D. I personally was a bit worried about whether actors would be willing to return after such a long absence. I’m sure Janos will return as well, as the actor was in both seasons 1 and 2, and Barristan, Aemon, Pyp and Grenn proved that at least most of the actors are fine with a one year gap, but I was worried that two might be a bit much.

    Now our list of characters that we need to return is:
    After a two year gap:
    Lysa Arryn
    Robin Arryn (I don’t doubt that these two will return, as it seems that they actually shot stuff for season 3)
    Gregor V1.0
    Bowen Marsh (if he hasn’t been recast)
    Benjen Stark, assuming he is Coldhands

    After a one year gap:
    Janos Slynt
    Lancel Lannister (I really missed Eugene this year…)
    Kevan Lannister
    Dontos Hollard (D&D said that they aren’t done with him just yet)
    Polliver
    Gregor V2.0 ONLY IF THEY CAN’T GET CONAN BACK!!!
    Kovarro (they don’t technically need him, but it would be nice to see him again)
    Tommen Lannister

    And then for season 5:
    Myrcella Lannister (They already set this plot up in season 2, they wouldn’t have it off screen)
    Illyrio Mopatis (I really hope they can get him back)

    Lysa and Robin definitely filmed for S3, but also, Kate Dickie’s agency website mentions she is filming for GoT season 4, so no worries there. Same website as Daniel Portman (Pod) as you can see, it mentions his return for s4 filming right next to Dickie.

    More unlikely and a larger departure from the books… maybe he could fill the void left by not casting Donal Noye? Could Thorne play the hero after being a bit villainous in Season 1? A few later seasons repercussions if they go that route.

    I don’t think he has either. The major roles often take a bit longer to cast. And they don’t need to cast him by the time filming begins on July 8. It all depends on how they’ve scheduled the filming, as to when they would need the Red Viper. I’m sure they could also move things around if the role is taking a bit longer to be cast.

    I dont think Hinds was a bad choice. They’ve altered the Mance character quite a bit. More of a General and less of a bard. Same thing for Tormund as he is less gregarious on the show than in the book(which I am more dissapointed in)

    I don’t know. I may have a wrong idea of what’s bad or evil (ie I don’t see Cercei as evil at all) and Allister has had some differences with John which doesn’t make him a bad guy in my opinion. Not meaning he I the kindest person but again that doesn’t make him a villain imh. I actually hope they solve their differences by the end… if he doesn’t come back as a wight…

    I believe the same, doesnt make sense to cast a new character. Have Thorne be the defacto leader, have him antagonize Jon and Jon has to prove his worth. Alliser dies during battle and Jon takes over, I think it would work well.

    Wonderful tidings, he made Thorne (which in the book I found was a two-dimensional villain there just to bully Jon and Sam) interesting. His scene in episode 4 when he talked about winter north of the wall was fantastic. Great.

    Now I hope we get a new Mountain/Conan Stevens, and Bowen Marsh back too.

    Posted June 24, 2013 at 10:11 am | Permalink

    I love how great the continuity is with GOT when it comes to actors being on and off the screen. Even if someone is absent for a couple of years Im always confident that they will return when the time is right. For instance not many people would have expected to see Balon Greyjoy or Maester Aemon in the finale of season 3 but sure enough there they were. And its proven again here with Thorne reappearing now that the story has returned to Castle Black. Im now in no doubt at all that the actors who play characters such as Slynt, Kevan, Lancel and Myrcella will also return to the story when the time is right for them.

    However I am unfortunately in agreement with those who are saying that it will be Ian Whyte who returns to play the Mountain next season. I highly doubt Conan will return and I cant see the producers changing the role again for a 3rd time. They need to get him in the armour Conan wore in season 1 and find a way to make him look as threatening as possible for a certain scene coming up.

    I don’t understand why they don’t shoot those single scenes the previous season so they don’t have to bring back the actors for just one scene, or worst, not doing it at all.

    Turncloak,

    Agreed on this. I could definitely see Grenn being moved into the sacrifice role during the battle at the wall. It gives his character a purpose and also enables the guys in charge to up the tension by showing a familiar face losing their life during the battle.

  53. Darquemode
    Posted June 24, 2013 at 10:26 am | Permalink

    Omar Brown,

    That was my thought as well. The sacrifice has more punch if it someone we love… or hate.

    Turncloak,

    Interesting.
    I had not thought of one of Jon’s “class” taking that part. It could work, but he may be missed during the election and after seeing as the have not cast many NW.

    Also I wonder if Grenn could take Jarman Buckwell’s role of reporting to the NW that Jon lived with the Wildlings.

    OT:
    I was looking for information on past cast and came across this pic on Aimee Richardson’s Twitter.

    So glad that Teale is back! He was a great Thorne, playing up the dickish/villainous side well, while also giving him another, more understandable side with that speech about the harshness of life on the Wall.

    I don’t think Thorne will be taking over Donal Noye’s role; rather, he will be taking over Bowen Marsh as Jon’s main antagonist in S5 (after pushing Slynt for LC in S4), and he will be the one to stab Jon.

    Such awesome news! I loved Owen Teale as Thorne. The Robert Shaw “Jaws” speech (to quote Bryan Cogman) from season one was fantastic. He’ll give some great intrigue to Jon’s story next season. And if he’s referring to “fantastic” dialogue in the future, so much the better for the arc at the Wall :)

    I’m also hoping for Janos Slynt. I’ve always kind of seen him as the Umbridge of Castle Black, torturing Harry/Jon and being generally annoying. In the absence of Donal Noye, I wonder if Samwell might not take that role, but as a more spiritual/supportive advisor. Noye was a great character in the books though.

    Maester Aemon is still at the Wall, so he would be the one providing spiritual and moral advice to Jon. I don’t think there would be any need for Donald Noyce equivalent character or scenes next year.

    Unsurprising, but pleasing that Owen Tesle is back. I didn’t even remember they had Bowen in season 1 until I read through these comments. Having the more memorable Alliser take on some of Bowen’s parts would be a good idea.
    I suspect they will eventually cast Cotter Pyke. The sooner the better so he will be established when things start going down at Hardhome and then Eastwatch. “Dead things in the water” *shudder*

    We posted that on our tumblr a while back. Aimee Richardson lives in the Belfast area, so she was invited to the GoT exhibit (where that pic is from), and has previously tweeted pics of her hanging out with Maisie and Sophie as well. This isn’t really any kind of a guarantee they won’t age up and recast Myrcella down the road.

  71. WeirwoodTreeHugger
    Posted June 24, 2013 at 1:03 pm | Permalink

    Off topic for this post but since people already brought it up; Aimee Richardson is really looking grown up these days. I hope they develop the character of Myrcella a bit more. They could give her relationship with Trystane a component of adolescent romance.

  72. Tyrion Pimpslap
    Posted June 24, 2013 at 1:20 pm | Permalink

    To be honest, I see Thorne fulfilling the same role as in the books. He will arrive back at Castle Black late in the season with Janos Slynt and they will have Jon arrested. Having him there for the battle and either dying heroically or surviving and taking credit makes zero sense. IMO. Jon has to be the one who leads the defense of the Wall against the Wildlings. It is perhaps the main reason he is elected Lord Commander. This is where he becomes the leader. Having Thorne there to steal his thunder wouldn’t be good.

    True!
    I wasn’t really trying to imply she will be back I guess…
    I was just surprised to see how grown up she is looking. Kids age of course, but I had not thought of her until recently.

    I think they could get away with recasting both Myrcella and Tommen honestly, but I enjoyed both actors and would not mind seeing them resume their roles down the road.

    I reckon Bowen Marsh will be recast. Janos Slynt is a possibility. Can’t imagine Donal Noye will be in. Don’t think Cotter Pyke and Dennis Mallister will make the cut, but it would be nice. The rest will probably just be extras.

    What about Kevan Lannister?! He plays such a huge role post PW & Tyrions escape! And who will play The Mountain? Will Conan return? Or Whyte? I’m so glad Thorne is back, and Aemon. It was great to see Aemon in Myhsa.

    voiceareason,

    If they could get Brian Fortune (Bowen Marsh) back for season four, I’m not sure why they’d need to re-cast him. The actor has just one project on the horizon, which is in pre-production, according to IMDb…

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1987270/

    Besides, if they can help it, I’d rather they avoid re-casting actors as much as possible. It’s a major pet peeve of mine, in terms of continuity. Which is also why I think they’ll keep Aimee Richardson on as Myrcella and Callum Wharry as Tommen.

    This also makes me wonder if Conan Stevens will, indeed, reprise his role as The Mountain. I doubt it, but I’d definitely like to see it happen. Whyte has the height, just not the build to make the character as imposing as Conan.

    Great to see Teale coming back. I hope they at least reference his trip to KL for the sake of continuity (just let him say the council didn’t want to meet him). Most watchers won’t remember he was sent South, but for the ones that do it would be weird if he just pops up again.

    I agree Cotter Pyke and Dennys Mallister will probably be cut , but I hope they still find a way to include Sam’s central role in making Jon Lord Commander. It’s one of the key points in his character development, right up with Sam the Slayer.

I feel like he could have shown up in Season 1 finale and thrown Joffrey the hand at his feet or better yet hit his face! lol or come in on Season 2 epsiode 1 when Tyrion convienves on the small council He could have gone in there with the message. Well Im glad the writers havent forgotten about him. Hopefully, they havent forgotten Benjen either.

    Winter Is Coming: I don’t think he has either. The major roles often take a bit longer to cast. And they don’t need to cast him by the time filming begins on July 8. It all depends on how they’ve scheduled the filming, as to when they would need the Red Viper. I’m sure they could also move things around if the role is taking a bit longer to be cast.

    Any casting news is good news. While I am happy that Teale is retuning as Thorne, this announcement signals the start of more – and bigger – announcements to come. We need an awesome Red Viper…

    …and, after watching about 30 minutes of Resident Evil Retribution, I am no longer convinced that Oded Fehr is the right choice.

    I think there’s a good chance Thorne takes Slynt’s role as the chief vote-getter for the LC election besides Jon (and later a main antagonist)- the producers have shown a distinct preference to minimize and combine characters when possible, and there’s nothing Slynt does that couldn’t be done by Thorne (and vice versa). And they may have picked Thorne because they like the actor better.

    Slynt was featured more in seasons 1 and 2 than Thorne was in S1. He is the man who held Ned’s head in the air after his execution. And they had an entire scene devoted to Tyrion sending him to the Wall. I’d be shocked if they cut the character and I’m not sure why some people think they would. They’d be fools to cut out Jon beheading the guy who had a role in his fathers beheading.

    Ours is the Fury:
    I haven’t been able to find anything confirmation yet about Dominic Carter (Janos Slynt) being in season four, but that doesn’t mean anything this early. I’m hoping we’ll see him too.

    Yeah, you gotta figure he’ll be back. He shows up for like 1-2 eps in Season 1, same in Season 2. You could argue for Season 3 he spent most of it getting to Castle Black, having not been given a pair of Littlefinger’s “plot device” wings that seem to only get loaned out when needed (to Melisandre, say).

    Well said. I think he’s been in too many scenes to be either cut or re-cast. They recast the guy who played Beric Dondarrion for all of 2 minutes and said “Yes, m’lord” in one scene, sure. They re-cast the 3 guys who turned out to be Rorge/Biter/Jaqen (you see them in “Fire and Blood” in the cage – crucially, one of them has his face covered by a hood) b/c they had no dialogue. They re-cast Rickard Karstark, who had one line in “Fire and Blood,” — “I’ll have peace on those terms – The King in the North!” following the Clive Mantle speech.

    But that’s all I can think of among characters that matter, other than the Mountain, and that one doesn’t sound like it was by choice. Even Hot Pie and Lommy, who torment Arya in one short scene in “Fire and Blood,” were not re-cast.

    Gorman’s return form Craster’s Keep will signify an highlighted role at Castle Black,
    but ser Thorne’s return was expected news. Grenn and Pyp , and several others may
    welcome Jon back easily, especially with respect to his harrowing escape and injury,
    but nothing is ever easy in GRRM’s world. GoT is carefully projecting pivotal points
    for future seasons, especially now for Stannis and Jon. I’m really looking forward
    to the onscreen twists or fresh perspectives.

Jon beheading Janos Slynt was the single biggest fist pump moment for the Starks since Robb captured Jaime Lannister. They won’t miss out on filming that scene. Also, there is no way Burn Gorman’s character would be allowed back at the Wall after what he did.

    Gotta agree here. The return of Janos Slynt is necessary. I love the passage in the first book when Sansa hopes that a true hero will chop off Slynt’s head one day (paraphrasing, of course). It is important that Slynt shows up at the Wall and that Jon removes his head.

    I really cant see Burn Gorman and the guy who plays Rast returning to the wall in season 4. My theory is that they will have some sort of interaction with Bran that may lead to Coldhands making his first appearance. They could possibly appear as attacking Wights leading to Coldhands arriving. Or another option would be for Bran’s group to stumble upon Crasters Keep and discovering that Gorman, Rast, etc have claimed it as their own (Crasters daughters included). This could then lead to them attacking Bran and Coldhands arriving.

    You’re mixing it up with book canon. In the book, Janos Slynt ordered an underling to kill the baby. Tyrion sent them both to the Wall and asked the NW recruiter to dispose of the underling en route. The show simplified matters by having Slynt wield the knife himself. There’s no hint that Tyrion might have asked a recruiter to dispose of Slynt.

    franco:
    Omar Brown,

    I think Thorne will be a mix of Donal and Bowen Marshhe will be the leader of the NW during the battle on the wall, but will survive only to become Jon’s main antagonist in the election and latter being the one to stab him at the end of season 5

    I very much doubt they are going to get that far into ADWD by the end of season 5. I would love for them to show Ser Alliser’s last battle with the White Walkers, which was offscreen in the books.

    Ser Tahu:
    This is extremely good news :D. I personally was a bit worried about whether actors would be willing to return after such a long absence. I’m sure Janos will return as well, as the actor was in both seasons 1 and 2, and Barristan, Aemon, Pyp and Grenn proved that at least most of the actors are fine with a one year gap, but I was worried that two might be a bit much.

    Now our list of characters that we need to return is:
    After a two year gap:
    Lysa Arryn
    Robin Arryn (I don’t doubt that these two will return, as it seems that they actually shot stuff for season 3)
    Gregor V1.0
    Bowen Marsh (if he hasn’t been recast)
    Benjen Stark, assuming he is Coldhands

    After a one year gap:
    Janos Slynt
    Lancel Lannister (I really missed Eugene this year…)
    Kevan Lannister
    Dontos Hollard (D&D said that they aren’t done with him just yet)
    Polliver
    Gregor V2.0 ONLY IF THEY CAN’T GET CONAN BACK!!!
    Kovarro (they don’t technically need him, but it would be nice to see him again)
    Tommen Lannister

    And then for season 5:
    Myrcella Lannister (They already set this plot up in season 2, they wouldn’t have it off screen)
    Illyrio Mopatis (I really hope they can get him back)

    ^^^^^^^THIS!

  121. Ser Tahu
    Posted June 24, 2013 at 10:02 pm | Permalink

    Restore The Day,
    If you clicked on the spoiler tag it is your fault. Mentioning characters that might return in a thread about a character that has been confirmed to make a return is not a spoiler, especially when the return of most of those characters has already been set up, or at least foreshadowed, in the tv series. The only ones where, in hindsight, I think I should have used spoiler tags is Illyrio Mopatis and Dontos Hollard, and even in those cases it is hardly a spoiler that they might appear, without giving any context to their reappearance.

    Anyway, as far as the Wall is concerned, I have no doubt that Janos will also return. As for the casting or cutting of other characters, here are my guesses.
    Bowen Marsh – I believe he will appear, but he might be recast. I suspect that he might be the one to say “The Wall is yours”, which would add a much more personal and emotional element to the events of ADwD, because Marsh would feel some kind of responsibility for Jon’s rise.
    Donal Noye – cut
    Othell Yarwyk – cut
    Denys Mallister – 50/50. If the election takes place near the end of season 4 he will most likely be cut, but if it is held back for season 5 (which I think that, unless they rush it in the last episode like they did with Dragonstone at the end of season 3, is the likeliest of the two options) then he might make an appearance.
    Cotter Pyke – will be cast (but again, if they save the election for season 5 he won’t appear until then). He may later provide a view point for the situation at hardhome
    Satin – cut. I suspect his role in the battle will likely be given to Sam, and then later on they might skip the whole ‘send Edd away to man another castle’ so that they can keep him on screen, and his role in manning another castle will be given to an extra
    As for the Wildlings;
    Styr, Magnar of Thenn – confirmed to be cast
    Dalla/Val – combined into a single character. I don’t think they will be cut altogether.
    The Weeper – kind of cut. I think that, like the books, he will be mention but never appear on screen
    Mother Mole – again, I think she will only be mentioned.
    Varamyr – cut

    So, to sum up, here are the characters that I think will make the cut (although not necessarily until season 5): Cotter Pyke, Bowen Marsh, Styr (already confirmed), Dalla/Val as one character, Mother Mole and the Weeper as offscreen characters, and possibly Denys Mallister.

    I understand what you’re saying and you may well be right but the show’s Janos Slynt has last been seen in a very early episode of season two and he had around 4 scenes all around. Getting him back to the show may also be hard unless he isn’t working on anything else ATM. But honestly the character is is much less annoying and despicable in the show. He is just another asshole. Unless they give him some serious screen time next season where he plays the bad guy and not just arresting Jon for a crime he really is responsible for. My point is, it can work as Janos Slint but it doesn’t have to be him. Whoever plays the role needs to be established as a bad guy, though, or it would kill the block scene.

    Slynt will be back. There’s no way he isn’t remembered as a despicable asshole. His scene with Tyrion “I have friends in court!” and Tyrion’s “I’m not questioning your integrity, I’m denying its very existence” were pretty memorable lines. Basically he comes across as a complete shithead, another petty dirtbag that populates this world. And D&D have shown their ability to play the long game very very well. If they took the trouble to introduce Craster for 2 episodes in Season 2 to kill him in Season 3, they’ll bring back Slynt.

    And in most cases, it seems like for character actors, work is work, and unless something bigger comes along (the chance to be in the Hobbit trilogy), people come back around.

    Jentario,

    But the “Edd, fetch me a block” scene is so great because Janos Slynt was involved in Ned’s beheading.It wan’t simply because Jon cut off a bad guy’s head.

    But that’s hardly true. All he did was take money from Littlefinger and do what his king commanded. He isn’t more responsible than Littlefinger, Joffery, the Queen, half the high lords of King’s Landing and dare I say- Sansa (or maybe that’s truer in the book). I cheered at his beheading because he was an asshole that does everything he does for his own benefit- not because he was responsible for Ned’s death.

    Jentario,

    It was a fist pump moment for me because Slynt tried to have Jon killed in that suicide mission he sent him on to kill Mance

    Martin,

    I thought so too, but that is not him. I’m 99% sure after rewatching the wedding several times and pausing to see everyone in the crowd.

    Cool! Great news!
    Just hoping we hear the same news about Conan Stevens…

    I don’t know it’s odd. Stevens, long ago , before his Hobbit junket said he wanted back.
    All indications something broke down, maybe he’s black listed by HBO for being available for season 2?

    I’d be pleased with Amr Waked as RV. Love to see what he’d bring to the table

    Good to see an old anthagonist return to the show! Thorne always sees himself as a true Brother of the Night’s Watch, one of real pedigree, while the rest are worth less than the dirt under his fingernails…and in walks Jon Snow…fresh from his travels….hmmm whatever will that lead to…

    For lovers of Dorne, this cover of the Dornishman’s Wife is fantastic. It captures the essence of the RV IMHO.

    Alexander Siddig or Rudolf Martin for the Viper!

    Justice,

    He really has the perfect look and demeanor for Oberyn. I hope they consider him for the role and at least contact his agent.

    I’ll admit to only watching it twice, so I bow to your wisdom. But it’s a pretty good look-a-like then and I thought it was an awesome detail that they had included him. Oh well, I do hope they bring him back anyways.
