It looks as though Game of Thrones will be dipping further into A Dance with Dragons territory for Theon Greyjoy this year. This will come as little surprise to fans, since fourth season casting for other storylines (such as Dany and Bran’s) included characters not encountered until the fifth book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series.
According to the CV of British actor Grahame Fox, he’ll be playing the role of Kenning in an upcoming episode directed by Alex Graves. In the novel, Ralf Kenning is an Ironborn captain stationed at Moat Cailin, in a very tense situation. Whether the same stronghold will figure in the show, or if Theon will encounter the captain and his men somewhere else is yet to be determined.
Fox has appeared on programs such as Casualty, Atlantis, Midsomer Murders, and Merlin.
Ours is the Fury: It’s no shock they need to take material from ADWD for Theon, more than anyone else, since he disappears from the books for quite a while and they’ve already spent an entire season filling in the blanks of what happened in that time. It does bring up the question, though, will there be enough material for Theon for next year, if The Winds of Winter isn’t released?
