Cast Announced For HBO’s Game of Thrones Prequel

Per talking4reel:

The cast of HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel is coming together.

Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp, and Toby Regbo have all joined the pilot in series regular roles. They join previously announced cast members Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse. As with all things “Game of Thrones,” the exact nature of each of their roles is being kept under wraps.

In addition, S.J. Clarkson has signed on to direct the pilot in addition to serving as an executive producer. Clarkson was most recently selected to direct the next film in the rebooted “Star Trek” franchise. She also recently executive produced and directed the limited series “Collateral” for BBC and Netflix. Her other directing credits include: the Marvel-Netflix shows “The Defenders” and “Jessica Jones,” the Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black,” HBO’s “Vinyl” and “Succession,” and Showtime’s “Dexter.”

The next series is expected to premiere shortly after the conclusion of Games of Thrones final season.
