“Game of Thrones” is set to return for its third season on March 31 on HBO. While the show has been rather elusive in revealing anything from the new season, on Friday it revealed the entire cast of the third season, giving some clues as to what fans should expect to see on “Game of Thrones.”
Tyrion was injured during battle in the second season.
HBO released photos for the entire cast of the third season of “Game of Thrones.” Many fan favorites will return, including Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Arya Stark, Bran Stark, Catelyn Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, Robb Stark as well as not-so-fan-favorites Joffrey Baratheon, Cersei Lannister, Jaime Lannister and Tywin Lannister. Important characters from the second season including Margaery Tyrell, Stannis Baratheon, Melisandre, Ygritte, Talisa Maegyr and Brienne of Tarth will also return.
There is not too much to be gleaned from the cast photos. Daenerys looks to be commanding an army while fans can get a glimpse of Tyrion's scars after his wounds have healed.
There are also plenty of new characters that will make their appearance throughout “Game of Thrones.” While his name has been constantly mentioned, Mance Rayder, played by Ciarán Hinds, will first appear on the third season. Fans saw a different Beric Dondarrion in the first season of “Game of Thrones.” That was just a quick cameo and the character has been recast as Richard Dormer, who is set to play “The Lightning Lord.”
Thoros, or Thoros of Myr, will make his debut in this season of “Game of Thrones.” Thoros was mentioned in the first season as Edard Stark ordered him to accompany Dondarrion as they looked for Ser Gregor Clegane. Margaery's mother, Olenna Tyrell, will also debut in the third season.
Catelyn Stark's uncle, Brynden Tully, played by Clive Russell, will make his first appearance on the show this season. Tully is better known by his nickname “The Blackfish”. Finally, the twins, Jojen and Meera Reed, will appear on “Game of Thrones.” The Reed twins will be companions to Bran Stark.
It seems as though Samwell, Littlefinger, Hordor, Theon Grayjoy, Rickon Stark or Varys will not appear in the third season. “Game of Thrones” season three will premiere on March 31 on HBO.
