Season 4 casting

Key Character Cast for ‘Game of Thrones’

HBO will be bringing on a new character from George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels to its fantasy series’ fourth season.

Pedro Pascal will join as Prince Oberyn Nymeros Martell AKA The Red Viper. He first appears in the third book of the series, “A Storm of Swords.”

“This was a tough one,” showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss told Entertainment Weekly about the casting.

Also read: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on the Naked Truth About the ‘Game of Thrones’ Kingslayer

“The Red Viper is sexy and charming, yet believably dangerous; intensely likable, yet driven by hate. The boys love him, the girls love him, and he loves them all back. Unless your last name is Lannister. We found a fellow who can handle the job description and make it seem effortless. He wasn’t easy to find and he won’t be easy to stop.”

Oberyn is described as a “brash, charming, cunning prince of Dorne (part of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros). His sister Elia was brutally murdered by the Lannister knight Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane when Mad King Aerys was overthrown by Robert Baratheon and the Lannisters. In season four, Oberyn comes to King’s Landing with revenge on his mind.”

The first major casting of the upcoming season, Pascal has held recurring roles on USA’s “Graceland,” ABC’s “The Red Widow” and CBS’s “The Good Wife.”

Neil Marshall To Helm The Epic Finale Of Season Four Of GAME OF THRONES

Season two's "Blackwater" was arguably one of the best - or at least the most action-packed - episode of HBO's Game of Thrones of all-time, and now the director of that episode (Neil Marshall) will return to helm the finale of season four.

Empire has revealed that The Descent's Neil Marshall will be returning to the Westeros for the season four finale of Game of Thrones. Now, I'm currently in the midst of reading the books so don't want to give too much away here, but A Storm of Swords ends with an epic battle between the Night's Watch and Mance Rayder's Wildling army at Castle Black. That would explain why Marshall has been drafted in for the finale! A few more spoilery details can be found by clicking on the link below.

George R. R. Martin Reveals What the Real ‘Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne Actually Looks Like

In a recent blog post, A Song of Ice and Fire author George R. R. Martin describes what the “real” Iron Throne — the one he imagines when he’s writing the books, not the one from HBO’s Game of Thrones — looks like. He points readers to this illustration by Marc Simonetti, which depicts the Iron Throne more as the author intended.


This Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Assymetric. It’s a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes… a symbol of conquest… it has the steps I describe, and the height. From on top, the king dominates the throne room. And there are thousands of swords in it, not just a few.

This Iron Throne is scary. And not at all a comfortable seat, just as Aegon intended.

In the blog post, Martin goes on to highlight the differences between the show’s Iron Throne and the novel version of his own creation:


The HBO throne has become iconic. And well it might. It’s a terrific design, and it has served the show very well. There are replicas and paperweights of it in three different sizes. Everyone knows it. I love it. I have all those replicas right here, sitting on my shelves.

And yet, and yet… it’s still not right. It’s not the Iron Throne I see when I’m working on THE WINDS OF WINTER. It’s not the Iron Throne I want my readers to see. The way the throne is described in the books… HUGE, hulking, black and twisted, with the steep iron stairs in front, the high seat from which the king looks DOWN on everyone in the court… my throne is a hunched beast looming over the throne room, ugly and assymetric…

The HBO throne is none of those things. It’s big, yes, but not nearly as big as the one described in the novels. And for good reason. We have a huge throne room set in Belfast, but not nearly huge enough to hold the Iron Throne as I painted it. For that we’d need something much bigger, more like the interior of St. Paul’s Cathedral or Westminster Abbey, and no set has that much room. The Book Version of the Iron Throne would not even fit through the doors of the Paint Hall.

SHERLOCK'S Mark Gatiss Joins GAME OF THRONES Season 4

After breaking the news that Pedro Pascal will play the key role of Prince Oberyn “The Red Viper” Martell in HBO's fourth season of Game Of Thrones, the ever-on-the-ball EW report that brilliant Sherlock co-creator and actor (he plays Mycroft Holmes) Mark Gatiss will also appear in an as yet undisclosed role. But, it's entirely possible that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss will reveal a bit more about that at their Comic-Con panel this Friday. Until then, it's speculation time!

SDCC '13: Check Out The "In Memoriam" Video From GAME OF THRONES' Panel

The problem with Game of Thrones being so far off is that there's very little the team behind the hit HBO series were able to show off at today's panel at the San Diego Comic-Con. However, they did reveal a deleted scene from season three (which will presumably be on the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray) and the following "In Memoriam" video which promises to break your hearts all over again!

'Game of Thrones' casts 'Rome' actress for season 4 -- EXCLUSIVE

Another fan-favorite Rome veteran is joining HBO’s Game of Thrones.
Actress Indira Varma has been cast in season four. Varma will play Ellaria Sand on the show, the sexually adventurous paramour of a key new character, Prince Oberyn Martell “The Red Viper” (played by Pedro Pascal).

Since playing Niobe on HBO’s Rome, Varma has had roles on Fox’s Human Target along with UK dramas Silk and Hunted. Last year, the production added fellow Rome actor Ciarán Hinds.

Varma joins fellow season 4 new hires Pascal and Sherlock writer-actor Mark Gatiss. Coming off the show’s highest-rated and most-Emmy-nominated season yet, last week at Comic-Con, Thrones producers and cast told EW they expect season 4 will be the show’s best.

“We got more action, which is obviously more time consuming,” says showrunner David Benioff. “It’s a brutal shooting season ahead. But if we can make it through, yeah, I think it’s going to surpass season three. The last 3 episodes, there’s so many scenes we’ve been waiting for so long to do. And it just gets more and more fun to write for these characters. After three years of doing it, we have that much more comfort to make everything uncomfortable for them. We’re very excited for it.”

Roger Ashton-Griffiths Cast As 'Mace Tyrell' In Season Four Of GAME OF THRONES

After teasing fans with clues about the latest addition to the cast of HBO's Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin has now confirmed that Roger Ashton-Griffiths has been cast as 'Mace Tyrell'. He is the Lord of Highgarden, head of House Tyrell and father to Loras and Margaery (who is of course married to Joffrey). His mother - Olenna Tyrell - views him as a bit of a fool, but he still plays a big role in what happens at King's Landing. The author confirmed this news via his blog, saying: "He's a father, he's a son. He's been a bishop, a cardinal, a prior, a friar, a vicar, a knight, a lord, a mayor, a director. There's one born every minute, but by any other name he'd smell as sweet. Yes, it's the fine British character actor Roger Ashton-Griffiths, who has been cast in the role of Mace Tyrell, son to the Queen of Thorns, and father of Loras and Margaery." Griffiths has previously appeared in Gangs of New York, Torchwood and The Tudors.

'Game of Thrones' casts Sigur Ros in season 4

In what’s become a Game of Thrones tradition, the HBO fantasy hit has teamed with an acclaimed indie band for the upcoming season.

Thrones has landed Icelandic art-pop sensation Sigur Rós to appear in season four. Jón Þór “Jónsi” Birgisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason are currently shooting an appearance on the Thrones set in Croatia. What will the band mates do? Will they play a song? Might a bowed guitar be involved?

We’re sworn to secrecy on the nature of the appearance. But they are musicians, so … let the speculation begin!

Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are longtime fans of Sigur Rós and would often listen to their music while shooting in Iceland (one of several countries used in the production of the show).

In past seasons, Thrones has tapped The National and The Hold Steady to perform songs inspired by lyrics in George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire saga (“The Rains of Castamere” and “The Bear and Maiden Fair,” respectively). Both tracks were also used on Thrones soundtracks. The show has also enlisted members of Snow Patrol and Coldplay for guest appearances.

Sigur Rós also had a guest spot on The Simpsons last season and are on the verge of starting a U.S. tour. Thrones returns to HBO next spring.

'Game of Thrones' casts Dany's Meereen contact

One final piece of Game of Thrones season 4 casting has fallen into place: The key role of Hizdahr zo Loraq has been filled by young British actor Joel Fry (10,000 BC).

Hizdahr is described as the “young scion of an ancient Meereenese family who crosses paths with Daenerys Targaryen.”

Meereen the largest of the three great Slaver Cities of Slaver’s Bay. The others are Astapor (where Dany acquired her slave army) and Yunkai (which Dany’s army liberated in the season 3 finale). Hizdahr is introduced in George R.R. Martin’s fifth “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel A Dance with Dragons.

Previous additions to season four include Homeland actor Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Rome actress Indira Varma as the prince’s paramour Ellaria Sand, Sherlock actor Mark Gattis as a Braavosi banker and Icelandic indie band Sigur Ros in an as-yet-undescribed role.

Game of Thrones returned to record-breaking ratings for its recent third season, which now averages 14.4 million viewers across all the network’s platforms. The season earned 16 Emmy nominations and currently ranks as the second most-watched season of any HBO series, slightly trailing The Sopranos. Thrones returns to HBO next spring.

'Game of Thrones' casts Styr in season 4

But wait, there’s more!

Just when you thought HBO’s Game of Thrones had finished announcing its season 4 cast, there is one more role left: Styr, the Magnar of Thenn.

He will be played by Russian actor Yuri Kolokolnikov. You’ve probably seen him in V tvoikh glazakh and Schastlivyy konets. Or perhaps Obrechyonnye na voynu? Okay, so Kolokolnikov may not be well known in the States. But he’s a longtime actor in his homeland, having appeared in more than a couple dozen features.

As for his character, Styr leads the Thenn, the most warlike tribe from beyond the Wall. At the end of the third season, the tribes are readying to potentially invade Westeros under the leadership of Mance Rayder (Ciarán Hinds) while spy-among-the-Wildlings Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was returned injured to Castle Black with news of their movements.

There was some previous online speculation that actor Joseph Gatt was playing Styr. All I can say about that is: Nope.

Cool looking wolf.  Cheesy

A year ago I gave the show a try...then proceeded to download every episode and watch it in marathon fashion. But I needed more so I downloaded the books and read through them in marathon fashion. I'm hooked for life.

Game Of Thrones Returns On April 6

Though it wasn’t tough to guess roughly when Game Of Thrones would be back on our screens, once more pitting the various forces of Westeros against each other for the Iron Throne, US cable network HBO has officially announced that the airdate for the show’s fourth season will be April 6. British fans will get their turn on Sky Atlantic a day later, on April 7.

Season Four, once more adapted from George R.R. Martin’s sprawling tome A Storm Of Swords (the third of his Song Of Ice And Fire series) will find several new characters coming into play, including Mace Tyrell (Roger Ashton-Griffiths), Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma), Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman), Styr, Magnar of Thenn (Joseph Gatt) and Prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal). And let’s not forget Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss, who is apparently cropping up as Tycho Nestorios, a representative of the Iron Bank.

Another reason to anticipate the show’s return (beyond the usual level of quality and the promise of even more dragon madness) is the return of Neil Marshall, who brought such flare and power to the Blackwater episode back in Season Two.

GAME OF THRONES ICE AND FIRE: A FORESHADOWING to Debut February 9th

Who is ready for Game of Thrones?!?

HECK yeah, I’m ready! Season 4 premieres on HBO on Sunday, April 6th, but for those of you (like me!) who just can’t wait any longer and have no intention of reading the books, HBO has a sneak peek coming your way.

From HBO: “Your readers may be interested to know that the 15-minute presentation Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing will debut Sunday, February 9 at 8:45 pm (ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, just before the debut of a new episode of True Detective. Offering a look back and a look forward to the fourth season of the hit HBO series, the show features clips from upcoming episodes, behind-the-scenes-footage, interviews with talent, and cast members’ answers to questions posed by fans.”

Yes, I would be interested to know that, thank you, HBO! George R.R. Martin’s book “A Storm of Swords” was split into what would be Season 3 and Season 4 of the show. Fans of the series have lots to look forward to after the crazy happenings in Season 3, including the return of “Blackwater” episode director Neil Marshall. And he’ll once again be directing an episode 9. I shudder just to think about what’s headed our way!
