HBO’s blockbuster series Game of Thrones is often recognized for its fantastic ensemble cast, which keeps replenishing its ranks every season. Last year, we met the Queen of Thorns, Mance Rayder, some Tullys, some Reeds, and mercenary bad-boy Daario. But there’s plenty of room for more new faces after the Red Wedding.
As the fourth season nears, let’s take a look at some of the actors stepping into Westeros for the first time. Proving that networking at the BBC is great for one’s career, a number of these new actors have already worked with each other and the existing Thrones cast. Get a glimpse of the exciting and sometimes embarrassing pasts of Oberyn Martell, Ellaria Sand, The Queen of Thorn’s oaf of a son, a Wildling or two, and mercenary bad-boy Daario. Again.
