Game of Thrones Casting News
For all of you that are fans get excited and for all of you who are not fans you consider becoming one. I came across an article at IGN on season two casting and we’re going to be seeing a bunch of new faces when season two premieres in 2012.
If you didn’t check out Game of Thrones over the summer on HBO you should definitely catch up on HBO Go or HBO on demand. The excellent, Emmy award winning show is based on George R.R. Martin‘s “Song of Ice and Fire” novels. There have been five released thus far and he plans on writing seven. I am currently about 500 pages into book three and they have been excellent so far. Book one was fantastic, book two was good and book three has been amazing so far. I bought the first four in paperback from Amazon for $22 dollars. I’d consider that a good deal considering I got about 4,000 pages. I’ll buy book five when it comes out in paperback.
I was able to catch up on season one of the show and it follows book one, also titled “Game of Thrones,” very closely. There are some aspects at the end that pull in book two plot points for continuity. The world Martin creates is extremely vivid and full of many deep characters. The TV production does the book more than justice and tells a compelling, visually rich drama. Once you see it you’ll know why it was nominated for so many Emmy’s and why it won for Best Supporting Actor.
Read the article at the link below to see who they’ve cast for characters such as Yigritte, Stannis, Davos, Melisandre and more. I can’t say it enough that you should catch up on the show and be sure to watch it when it returns in 2012.
