The Game of Thrones prequel is upon us, and so are the NEW characters!!

Change can be scary but these eight rising stars seem promising, especially with SJ Clarkson directing the pilot episode. Some of her work includes Jessica Jones, Succession and the upcoming Star Trek feature.

The new actors include the following:

  1. Naomi Ackie (next appearing in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars)
  2. Denise Gough (Guerrilla, Tony-nominated for Angels in America)
  3. Jamie Campbell Bower (Sweeney Todd, Twilight, Mortal Instruments)
  4. Sheila Atim (Harlots)
  5. Ivanno Jeremiah (Black Mirror, Humans)
  6. Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia)
  7. Alex Sharp (To the Bone)
  8. Toby Regbo (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald).

Of course Game of Thrones is the best at keeping secrets so no information has been leaked yet on what roles these characters will play, but that’s all the fun! The drama is set thousands of years before the events of the hit HBO show.
