As Game Of Thrones comes to an end this year, fans are kept going by the fact that a prequel is in fact coming. Confirmed by George R.R. Martin, the unnamed sequel supposedly starts production this year. Today marks a new milestone for the prequel, as the cast was finally dropped and we’re pretty excited.
Alongside Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse, these eight actors, some of whom you may recognise, will be joining the cast of the Game of Thrones prequel.
Jamie Campbell-Bower from Mortal Engines and Twilight will be joining the cast, and we have no doubt he’ll slip right into the Targaryen fam with no problem. Georgie Henley from The Chronicles of Narnia also joins the Game of Thrones team.
I’m shaking with joy to able to share this news with you. A real pinch me moment. x https://t.co/6HpQcCZ9tS

Sounds like they’re just as excited as we are. This new cast gives us high hopes for the future of the Game of Thrones universe. The final season of Game of Thrones premiers in April this year.
