HBO's Game of Thrones Adds Natalie Dormer For Season Two
So, remember how last week I was all like, "You better enjoy the Game of Thrones posts while they last, because the show's in between seasons and we might have to wait." Yeah, I guess I didn't really consider the fact that the second season will be needing actors, because there are several major players in the Game of Thrones (well, Clash of Kings) that we have yet to meet. And now the first has been cast...
According to EW, "HBO’s Game of Thrones has made its first casting hire for season 2: Natalie Dormer, who memorably played the seductive and doomed Anne Boleyn on Showtime's The Tudors." The article also notes that Dormer has a small part in next month's Captain America (and I think you can catch her at the end of TV Spot #2).
She will play Margaery Tyrell, the future wife of self-proclaimed King Renly Baratheon...oh, but Renly is a homosexual, you say? Yes, but he remains firmly in the closet with his lover (and brother of his future wife), Ser Loras Tyrell, the Knight of Flowers. Who would have thought, another twisted family relationship appears in George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire. Shocker.
More casting news will surely be coming from Westeros over the next month (leading up to their panel at Comic-Con), and personally I can't wait to see who they choose for Stannis Baratheon, Melisandre, and Davos. Game of Thrones returns to HBO next Spring.
