Game of Thrones historically acknowledges precious little of any season’s castings in advance, save for overwhelming observation of an eagerly-awaited role. Now, another famous UK face has joined Season 6 , that of the omnipresent Richard E. Grant, but who might he be playing?

Most Game of Thrones Season 6 castings have come through on-set observation, or at best, vague announcements from HBO, but the latest offers a much clearer look at a major storyline. Harry Potter and UnREAL star Freddie Stroma will join the sixth season, in a role suggestive of Samwell Tarly’s arc this year.
Now that we’re all more or less on the same page with regard to Game of Thrones spoilers, many have wondered if Season 6 might return to the Iron Islands and Greyjoy plotlines dropped by HBO. We’ve seen some strong hints, but now it seems Borgen star Pilou Asbæk has landed a long-awaited key role in Season 6, of which filming confirms a major literary event.
Like the proverbial football plucked eternally from kicking range, Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin has oft-attempted to comment on the HBO adaptation of his work, only to find the internet widely exaggerating or misconstruing his words. That responsibility is ours today, as Martin comments on the fate of Stannis Baratheon, both on TV and the written page.
Game of Thrones fans have good reason to suspect the obvious candidate for a Season 6 resurrection, but another thought-dead favorite may too pop up in 2016, and not necessarily in flashback. Who, pray-tell, might have survived a brush with the hounds of hell to return in Game of Thrones Season 6?
The uncharted territory of Game of Thrones Season 6 has stirred a great deal of interest among which characters might return, some confirmed, and others overwhelmingly suggested. Now, two more names have entered the fray, as evidence might put Natalie Tena (Osha) and Art Parkinson (Rickon Stark) in Season 6.
There may never be another season of television with as much built-in anticipation as Game of Thrones Season 6, both over the fate of Jon Snow and the possibility of revealing George R.R. Martin’s story ahead of time. Now, Season 6 director Jeremy Podeswa opens up ever-so-slightly on either, in the process suggesting there may yet be more to Jon Snow’s story.
Now that HBO’s Game of Thrones will officially outpace George R.R. Martin’s books (unless you wanna throw Winds of Winter at us in March, George), fans cant help looking toward the inevitable series’ end in sight. And while Martin wouldn’t dare spoil any early details, the author at least assures us not everyone will die horrible apocalyptic deaths.
Beyond all the Jon Snow speculation, Game of Thrones Season 6 has book and TV fans alike uncertain what to expect from the next chapters of George R.R. Martin’s story. The return of Bran and his new teacher has many presuming a variety of flashbacks, which may yet have been confirmed, if a new report casting a young Ned Stark is to be believed.
If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, you know that trial by combat doesn’t end well — a character must fight to the death to prove his innocence. If he lives, he’s innocent. If he dies, he’s guilty. One Game of Thrones super-fan thinks this is a great idea, and is attempting to invoke his right to trial by combat in the New York State Supreme Court.
