Game Of Thrones is coming to an end this year. As sad as that is going to be, there will still be adventures in Westeros once the main one is finished. HBO is putting together a pilot for a prequel series set within the GOT universe, and five new actors have officially joined the cast.
Marqius Rodriquez, John Simm, Richard McCabe, John Heffernan, and Dixie Egerickx have officially joined the cast. Rodriquez was last seen on Netflix’s Luke Cage. Simm was previously seen on Doctor Who. McCabe can be seen on Peaky Blinders. Heffernan’s TV credits include The Crown and Luther. Egerickx is the youngest of the new recruits and can be seen in Showtime’s Patrick Melrose.
HBO is keeping the plot of the prequel show under wraps, but it is said to take place thousands of years before the original series and will chronicles the Golden Age of Heroes all the way to Westeros’ darkest hour.
Previously announced cast members include Naomi Watts and Miranda Richardson. Production will begin early this summer.
