Game of Thrones Mystery Roles Cast

Over the past month, Mark Gatiss, Joseph Gatt, and Michael Huisman have all been cast in unspecified roles for Game of Thrones Season 4.

We’ve seen a lot of speculation on the issue, but The Mary Sue has some interesting theories:

It’s a fair bet that Gatt will play Styr, Magnar of Thenn, since we know he’s definitely showing up in season four and Gatt looks, well, Styr-y. My guess for Gatiss is Merrett Frey; if you haven’t read the books, do not Google him, as pretty much everything about his character constitutes a major spoiler. Mace Tyrell and Oberyn Martell have already been cast …

If we are getting book four characters one of the Martells is also a possibility, though the show has cast persons of color for the two of them we know we’re getting so far (Oberyn and Ellaria Sand). Might we be seeing Ser Arys Oakheart, the Kingsguard member who protects Myrcella in Dorne? Huisman visually matches Oakheart for me more than any other character, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.

Kit Harington Says Season 4 Script is “Fantastic”

From Yahoo!:

I’ve got great hopes for this season. I’ve read it and it’s fantastic,” he told us. “You’re going to love it. It’s my favorite so far.”

One major new character addition this season is bad boy Oberyn Martell, aka the Red Viper. It was announced last month that Chilean actor Pedro Pascal had nabbed the role, which sparked controversy among fans.

“Thrones” creator George R.R. Martin defended the decision; and Harington, too, fully has faith in the casting.

“I haven’t seen him in costume yet, but I have had dinner with him a couple of times. He’s a lovely man,” Harington explained. “He’s going to be brilliant. It’s an amazing character and quite the story line. You’re going to enjoy it. [Fans] won’t be disappointed, Pedro Pascal is the man for the job.”

While Harington was tight-lipped on what Jon Snow is going to be up to next year, he revealed where he would like his character to go.

“Well I do know where he goes…” Harington teased. “I’d like him to go and rescue Arya, but I don’t think he’s going to be able to. I’d like to see him collect Sansa, Arya, and Bran and just take them to the wall or something.”
