Photos from HBO’s Game of Thrones

Entertainment Weekly has 11 new photos from the upcoming television series adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s mega-successful (and mega-awesome) A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series:

Kit Harington as Jon Snow and John Bradley-West as Samwell Tarly

Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister

Every time I see new photos, I’m just blown away by how well HBO has cast the show. They don’t look exactly like the characters in my head, but, similar to what has happened with J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, I can imagine each and actor quickly replacing those images whenever I re-read the series.

More photos can be found on Entertainment Weekly in advance of the in-depth feature on the television series that will be featured in tomorrow’s issue the magazine.

Which are your favourites? Are there any casting choices you emphatically agree or disagree with?
