Unfortunately, it looks as though Lena Headey, who plays Cersai Lannister, will not be able to attend SDCC this year. Nor will our beloved Jon Snow, Kit Harington. However, you’ll be able to see Rose Leslie as she has just been added!
From Cinema Blend:
Another day, another change-up to the panel for Game of Thrones at Comic-Con. And unlike the update we shared yesterday, this one doesn’t sound like a trade-off. One key cast member will not be appearing in the panel as scheduled, due to an injury.
Yesterday we learned that Lena Headey was unfortunately not going to be at the Comic Con panel for Game of Thrones due to a scheduling conflict. There was a bright side to that situation, as it was announced that Rose Leslie, who plays Ygritte on the HBO fantasy drama series, was set to fill the vacancy. Now it looks like Kit Harington will also not be attending SDCC for the Game of Thrones panel. The official GoT Twitter posted the following update…
So, unfortunately it looks like there will be no Jon Snow at the SDCC Game of Thrones panel, and there’s no word on anyone else coming in to fill his place. Hopefully Harington’s injury heals quickly and fully. From what the Hollywood Reporter says, it doesn’t sound like it’ll interfere with production on the series’ third season. He will definitely be missed by fans at this year’s Con though.
Here’s wishing Kit a speedy recovery!
