When she's not trying to manipulate her bastard fiancee, King Joffrey, or stay out of Cersei's way, 'Game of Thrones' actress Natalie Dormer (aka Margaery Tyrell) is busy landing big-screen gigs. The latest additions to her resume are biggies -- 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' and 'Part 2.'
Game of Thrones
Though character names and actors may prove inherently meaningless to 'Game of Thrones' fans unfamiliar with George R.R. Martin's writing, the fourth season of HBO has just made a huge addition to its cast, both literally and figuratively. Cinemax's 'Banshee' star Joseph Gatt has reportedly joined 'Game of Thrones' season 4 in a major literary role as Styr, Magnar of Thenn, but how much of the character will be changed?
We're dying for a taste of new blood come 'Game of Thrones' season 4, which to date has announced far fewer castings than previous cycles, however more significant. New roles may prove to be a moot point, though, as new rumors suggest that a major role will need to be recast beginning with season 4, and from a surprising source at that.
'Game of Thrones' season 4 won't arrive on our HBO until spring 2014, and season 3 Blu-Ray releases won't hit stores until February 18, so what's a 'Game of Thrones' fan deprived of new content to do? Why, check out a fresh deleted scene from season 3 that features Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) and Maester Pycelle (Julian Glover) in a stalwart battle of wits!
We'll need a bit of water to wash down all the salt fanboys should take this one with, but Christina Hendricks on HBO's 'Game of Thrones'? We want to go to there. The 'Mad Men' actress kept up the notorious secrecy surrounding the AMC drama, but recently opened up about her post-'Mad Men' plans, which include a desire to make the trip to 'Homeland' or HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' assuming the old gods and the new smile upon us.
'Game of Thrones' season 4 seems to weigh heavier by the day, waiting until spring 2014 for a premiere that seems so removed from the recent Comic-Con 2013 appearance. Regardless, there can be no argument that HBO gave us its most visually impressive and jaw-dropping season to date this past year, so lets go back to celebrate 'Game of Thrones' season 3 with the full FX reel from SpinVFX!
Some weeks ago we heard our first confirmation and casting of Starz's upcoming Ron Moore-helmed adaptation of 'Outlander,' casting Sam Heughan in the series lead role that brings Dianna Gabaldon's best-selling novels to life. Now, the Starz production has doubled-down on a dose of 'Game of Thrones,' adding HBO star Tobias Menzies in a dual role for the upcoming production.
'Game of Thrones' season 4 remains a good while off, but as with the previous season, fans are eager to learn who will take the roles of revered George R.R. Martin characters when HBO finally introduces them into their own adaptation. We've heard quite a bit about several new Dornish characters to date, but are you ready to meet the oft-mentioned Mace Tyrell? Introducing Roger Ashton-Griffiths!
Earlier today we learned from the HBO panel at the ongoing TCA press tour that in-development projects like 'Criminal Justice' and a 'Transporter' TV series had largely been stalled, but the premium cable network had nothing but good things to say about the futures of its current flagship hits, from 'Game of Thrones' to 'True Blood' and 'The Newsroom.' Less certain however, is the fate of Larry David's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.'
'Game of Thrones' season 4 left us a bit in the Red Waste with regard to its Comic-Con 2013 panel, eschewing the mammoth casting reveals of the previous year in favor of a retrospective for those lost within the first three seasons. In spite of that void however, another major season 4 player has finally been cast with 'Rome' star Indira Varma, that of Prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal)'s main squeeze, Ellaria Sand!
