HBO just announced 14 new cast additions to season three of Game of Thrones. Season three also got a premiere date: March 31, 2013. (Video with all the actors below).
Diana Rigg as Lady Olenna Tyrell. Also known as “The Queen of Thorns,” Lady Olenna is the grandmother of Margaery and Loras Tyrell and is, in many ways, the true leader of their powerful family.
I'm especially intrigued with Dame Diana Rigg being cast in another high-profile role--two in just a short span of time. She will be a really good Queen of Thorns!
Mackenzie Crook as Orell. A wildling raider, Orell is a “warg” or “skinchanger,” with the ability to enter the mind of an animal and control its actions.
Clive Russell as Bryndon “The Blackfish” Tully. Known far and wide as “The Blackfish,” Brynden is a famous knight and the uncle of Catelyn Stark. He quarreled bitterly with his brother, Lord Hoster Tully, and the two were estranged for many years.
I don't know Clive Russell's work but he certainly looks and sounds like a good fit for the role of 'Blackfish Tully' (see casting season 3 video, this page).
