Five New Series Regulars Added to GAME OF THRONES Prequel

At least we know HBO is serious about this Game of Thrones prequel. Sometimes projects can get stuck in pre-production, but not this one! The casting directors have added five new names to its ensemble cast for its Game Of Thrones prequel pilot. 

Marquis Rodriguez (When They See Us), John Simm (Strangers)Richard McCabe (Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams), John Heffernan (Dracula) and Dixie Egerickx (The Secret Garden) will all play series regulars in the drama pilot.

They join previously announced series regulars Naomi Watts, Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp, Toby Regbo and Miranda Richardson. At this time, none of the character names or details have been revealed.

With such a star studded cast, we hope to see another brilliantly untold story of the world from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.

Creators are keeping details on the story tightly under wraps so the only thing we know for sure right now is this:

From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend — it’s not the story we think we know.
