Game of Thrones Season 2 Casting

Adding to casting news back in June, two of the expected big roles in season two of Game of Thrones have been filled - by Stephen Dillane (Baratheon brother Stannis) & Carice van Houten (the seductively forceful Melisandre).

This writer has not seen much of the male addition but recalls fondly the performance of Miss van Houten in Paul Verhoeven's Black Book. Readers will likely recognise Dillane if they have seen Welcome to Sarejevo, Goal!, or John Adams.

Expect more news later this week as there will be a Game of Thrones panel at Comic-Con in San Diego (chaired by George R. R. Martin).
