We met Sir Loras Tyrell two years ago, a brave knight and, more memorably, Renly's lover, and last season saw the arrival of even more members of the Tyrell family, most notably his sister Margaery who first acted as Renly's beard before ending up as a rival to Cersei in King's Landing. This year brings even more 'Flowers' to court with Diana Rigg playing the powerful and clever Olenna Tyrell, also known as the Queen of Thorns.

Next up is another character that fans of the novels have been eagerly waiting to see, Brynden 'The Blackfish' Tully. Played by Clive Russell, the Blackfish is Cat Stark's uncle and, although estranged from the rest of his family, is seen as an honorable man and excellent warrior. Those who have read the books will recognize the pivotal scene taking place in the photo and those that haven't, well, Russell still looks pretty badass.

And finally, a name familiar to readers and watchers alike, the last photos gives us our first real clear look at Ciaran Hinds as Mance Rayder. The King Beyond the Wall was a common topic for discussion during Jon Snow's adventures in the bitter cold of the far north and now that he's with the wildlings, it was only a matter of time before they brought the 'former' member of the Night's Watch to meet their leader. You can meet him now.

The third season of Game of Thrones premieres on Sunday, March 31, 2013 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. The series is based on the “Song of Ice and Fire” saga by George R.R. Martin and stars Peter Dinklage, Kit Harrington, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
