TOM WLASCHIHA as Jaqen H'ghar gives Arya Stark (MAISIE WILLIAMS) a coin in the season 2 finale of HBO's GAME OF THRONES:
Game Of Thrones Season 2: Recap #20:
EW.com has a list of new characters coming to HBO’s Game of Thrones in season three.
Fans have been wondering which names from George R.R. Martin’s third Song of Ice and Fire novel, A Storm of Swords, will be introduced next year, especially since the lengthy book is being divided into two seasons.
GAME OF THRONES showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss spoke about some of the creative changes this year and next season’s plans:
“[Jojen and Meera Reed] haven’t been written out,” Benioff says.
“It’s important to point out that that we have the largest cast on television right now. We introduced dozens of new characters in season two. If you hurl 300 characters at an audience, the story collapses under the weight of too many faces, too many names, and too many subplots. We need to be just as mindful of the audience members who have never read the books as we are of the readers; the series will fail if we only appeal to those who already know the characters. So we try to be parsimonious about how many new roles we introduce to the story and when we introduce them.”
Here’s A CHARACTER LIST of some of the new faces who will appear in season three of GAME OF THRONES on HBO:
– Mance Rayder: We’ve heard about him all season. A former member of the Night’s Watch who became the “King Beyond the Wall,” the leader of the Wildlings.
– Daario Naharis: A confident and seductive warrior.
– Jojen Reed; Meera Reed: A teenage brother and sister duo with special insights, (in the books, friends of the Starks).
– Edmure Tully: A brash young member of the Tully family. (Catelyn's brother)
– Ser Brynden Tully (The Blackfish): Catelyn Stark’s uncle.
– Lady Selyse Florent: Stannis Baratheon’s wife.
– Shireen Baratheon: Stannis’ daughter.
– Olenna Redwyne ('The Queen of Thorns'): Margaery Tyrell’s sharp-witted grandmother.
– Beric Dondarrion: A skilled knight who is the leader of the outlaw group, Brotherhood Without Banners. Rumours persist that he has been killed many times yet he 'soldiers on.'
– Thoros of Myr: A red priest who follows the same religion as Melisandre.
– Tormund Giantsbane: A Wildling raider. (to say the least)
