Game Of thrones

The fifth season of “Game Of Thrones” is about to get underway any minute now and the fast-working HBO show is already scheduled for an April 2015 premiere. The show works at a rather break-neck pace, and so while production is set to begin any moment now (and some of the cast was at Comic-Con today), naturally, the new members of the cast have been announced. And there are nine new members to the ever expanding troupe.

Perhaps the most notable are Jonathan Pryce and Alexander Siddig, the former being the Welsh actor and star of Terry Gilliam’sBrazil” among many other notable roles including the villain in 1997 Bond movie "Tomorrow Never Dies" and the president opposite Madonna in “Evita” (1996). He’s also been part of the “Pirates Of the Caribbean” franchise and if you want to see a late-era comeback, you must see his terrific performance in the Sundance comedy “Listen Up Philip” when it arrives (presumably) later this year.

Alexander Siddig's also had venerable career, but he's known and beloved to geek fans as Dr. Julian Bashir in the television series "Star Trek: Deep Space." The rest of the cast includes Keisha Castle-Hughes ("Whale Rider"), Toby Sebastian, Nell Tiger Free, DeObia Oparei, Jessica Henwick, Enzo Cilenti, and Rosabell Laurenti Sellers.

In case you missed it, for that love Neil Marshall’s epic warring penultimate episodes, he won’t be coming back for the fifth season (boo!). Longtime series director Alex Graves is also taking the year off. Instead, fans of the HBO show will get Michael Slovis (“Breaking Bad”), Mark Mylod (“Shameless”),Jeremy Podeswa (“Boardwalk Empire”) and Miguel Sapochnik (“Fringe”).

Being unfamiliar with the George R.R. Martin books, I won’t pretend to know who is playing who, so here’s that info from the press release. A new blooper real has been released out of Comic-Con as well and you can watch that below. Oh and in related "Game Of Thrones" news, actress Maisie Williams is evidently being courted for a role in the video-game adaptation of "The Last Of Us" that will be produced by Sam Raimi.

Alexander Siddig as Doran Martell. Doran Martell is the ruling lord of Dorne and older brother to the late Prince Oberyn Martell. Unlike his brother, Doran is even-tempered and deliberate. Now, all of Dorne waits to see how their lord will react to his brother’s death.

Toby Sebastian as Trystane Martell. Trystane Martell is Prince Doran’s son and heir to Dorne. His father betrothed him to Myrcella Baratheon as part of the alliance offered by Tywin Lannister, then Hand of the King.

Nell Tiger Free as Myrcella Baratheon. Myrcella Baratheon is officially the eldest child of Cersei Lannister and the late King Robert Baratheon, though in truth her father is Cersei’s own brother, Jaime Lannister. For years, she has been a guest and ward of Prince Doran, betrothed to his son, but her position has become tenuouswith the deathof Oberyn Martell, thePrince’s brother.

DeObia Oparei as Areo Hotah. Areo Hotah is the long-serving captain of Doran Martell’s palace guard, renowned for his loyalty and his longaxe.

Enzo Cilenti as Yezzan. Yezzan was an extremely wealthy slave trader before Daenerys Targaryen outlawed the slave trade.

Jessica Henwick as Nymeria (“Nym”) Sand. Nym Sand is the second eldest of the latePrince Oberyn’s bastard daughters. Her mother was an Eastern noblewoman who brought Nym up to be cultured, graceful and deadly with a whip.

Rosabell Laurenti Sellers as Tyene Sand. Tyene Sand is the daughter of the late Prince Oberyn Martell by Ellaria Sand, his final paramour. Tyene is fiercer than she looks, especially with her twin daggers.

Keisha Castle-Hughes as Obara Sand. A fearsome warrior, Obara Sand is the eldest bastard daughter of the late Prince Oberyn Martell. Her mother was a Dornish peasant girl who caught the eye of the late Prince.

Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow. A devout and pious man, the High Sparrow came to King’s Landing to serve those forgotten by much of the world – the poor, the downtrodden and the infirm – and quickly amassed a large following. His fellow believers have swarmed over the city, ministering to the lowest and decrying the corruption of the highest.
