'Game of Thrones' - Casting News - SPOILERS

http://blastr.com/2012/07/look-who-game-of-thrones.php

The role of 'Ramsay Snow' may have been cast.

Quote:
The actor chosen to play the sadistic, creepy and cunning bastard son of Roose Bolton (Michael McElhatton) is none other than Misfits actor Iwan Rheon, who has been a fan favorite for the role for quite some time now


Quote:
HBO has not yet confirmed Rheon was indeed playing Snow, simply calling his character "Boy"—but all signs point to him being Ramsay Snow (helped along by this little Facebook pic)

It took me a sec to figure out who the woman was in that pic, as her character rarely smiles.

I could see him as Bolton's bastard, btw.

Uh, that's not Mance Rayder. That's Ramsay Snow.

Hahahhaa, I did not even catch the mismatch between the article and the thread titles.

I was thinking Iwan Rheon was a pretty bizarre choice for Rayder...so young!

A copy and paste mistake. I corrected it.

But isn't the title "King Beyond the Wall" still incorrect? Doesn't that title refer to Mance Rayder?

At Comic-Con a couple weeks ago, they announced several other new members of the Season 3 cast. As long as there's a thread for it, that info may as well be posted here as well:

http://www.hitfix.com/news/game-of-t...crook-and-more

Diana Rigg - Lady Olenna ("Queen of Thorns")
Mackenzie Crook - Orell
Thomas Brodie-Sangster - Jojen Reed
Ellie Kendrick - Meera Reed
Clive Russell - Brydon Tully
Tara Fitzgerald - Selyse Baratheon
Kerry Ingram - Shireen Baratheon
Nathalie Emannuel - Missadei
Paul Kaye - Thoros of Myr
Kristofer Hivju - Tormund Giantsbane
Philip McGinley - Anguy
Anton Lesser - Qyburn
Richard Dormer - Beric Dondarrion

Yes.

The irony is, Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, is the one major character who has NOT been cast (or at least, whose casting has not been announced)...

Same here. He looks the part! Having finally finished the books, I will be hanging on to everything new about the show.
