Game Of Thrones Reveals New Cast Members At Comic Con

(PCM) The big news coming out of Hall H yesterday at San Diego Comic Con was that new cast members for the hit HBO series Game Of Thrones have been revealed. This also marks the beginning of where the series begins to break away from the books and weave it’s own story lines.

Among the new actors and the characters they will portray are:
Alexander Siddig as Doran Martell. Doran Martell is the ruling lord of Dorne and older brother to the late Prince Oberyn Martell. Unlike his brother, Doran is even-tempered and deliberate. Now, all of Dorne waits to see how their lord will react to his brother’s death.

Toby Sebastian as Trystane Martell. Trystane Martell is Prince Doran’s son and heir to Dorne. His father betrothed him to Myrcella Baratheon as part of the alliance offered by Tywin Lannister, then Hand of the King.

Nell Tiger Free as Myrcella Baratheon. Myrcella Baratheon is officially the eldest child of Cersei Lannister and the late King Robert Baratheon, though in truth her father is Cersei’s own brother, Jaime Lannister. For years, she has been a guest and ward of Prince Doran, betrothed to his son, but her position has become tenuous with the death of Oberyn Martell, the Prince’s brother.

DeObia Oparei as Areo Hotah. Areo Hotah is the long-serving captain of Doran Martell’s palace guard, renowned for his loyalty and his longaxe.
           
Enzo Cilenti as Yezzan. Yezzan was an extremely wealthy slave trader before Daenerys Targaryen outlawed the slave trade.
           
Jessica Henwick as Nymeria (“Nym”) Sand. Nym Sand is the second eldest of the late Prince Oberyn’s bastard daughters. Her mother was an Eastern noblewoman who brought Nym up to be cultured, graceful and deadly with a whip.
           
Laurenti Sellers as Tyene Sand. Tyene Sand is the daughter of the late Prince Oberyn Martell by Ellaria Sand, his final paramour. Tyene is fiercer than she looks, especially with her twin daggers.
           
Keisha Castle-Hughes as Obara Sand. A fearsome warrior, Obara Sand is the eldest bastard daughter of the late Prince Oberyn Martell. Her mother was a Dornish peasant girl who caught the eye of the late Prince.
           
Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow. A devout and pious man, the High Sparrow came to King’s Landing to serve those forgotten by much of the world – the poor, the downtrodden and the infirm – and quickly amassed a large following. His fellow believers have swarmed over the city, ministering to the lowest and decrying the corruption of the highest.

Game Of Thrones is set to return for it’s fifth season in 2015.

The cast also had great fun in their panel when we were treated to a hilarious casting video and blooper reel. Proves to us that things are not so serious in Westros all the time!

The Leftovers Debuts On HBO!

The-Leftovers1

(PCM) There is certainly a lot of buzz surrounding the new HBO drama series “The Leftovers” which is created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrottoa. The series will make its’ debut tonight, 6/29, at 10pm.

When 2% of the world’s population abruptly disappears without explanation, the world struggles to come to terms with what happened. Three years later, The Leftovers, is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut.

Based on Perrotta’s bestselling novel of the same name, The Leftovers is an original look at The Rapture…or was it The Rapture at all? Set in a small New York suburb, the intimate family drama focuses on the residents of the fictional town of Mapleton, whose preconceptions are shattered in the wake of a global event dubbed “The Sudden Departure.” Three years after the fateful day when 140 million people disappeared without a trace, the series focuses on the ways ordinary people react to inexplicable events that can unite or divide families and communities, examining how their untold grief and the strain of an unprecedented calamity can turn faith into cynicism, paranoia, madness or cult-like fanaticism.

At the heart of The Leftovers is the Garvey family. Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), the town’s beleaguered chief of police and father of two, is trying to maintain some semblance of normalcy when the notion no longer applies. While Kevin and his rebellious daughter, Jill (Margaret Qualley), try to go back to the way things used to be, Kevin’s son, Tom (Chris Zylka), sees the event as a wakeup call to take action. At the same time, Kevin is faced with the conflict between the townspeople of Mapleton and the Guilty Remnant, a mysterious cult-like group that seems to offer an escape for traumatized residents.

We are definitely excited to check out The Leftovers…will you be tuning in?  Check out the preview trailer:

Game Of Thrones Author Will Kill Fans For $20,000

George-RR-Martin1

(PCM) Of course not literally, however for two deep-pocketed fans, one male and one female, Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin will write them into, and of course most likely kill them off in one of the upcoming volumes of Martin’s “A Song of Fire And Ice” book series.

The two lucky fans shelled out $20,000 a piece for this unique opportunity and the money is going to a fantastic cause, as it will benefit a few charities supported by Martin which are Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and the Food Depot of Santa Fe, N.M.

There are additional prizes available based on the amount of your donation. One prize even consists of taking a helicopter ride with Martin himself to visit the wolf sanctuary. How awesome would that be!

In other Game Of Thrones news, as we wind our way down to the final two episodes of this incredible season, it has just been revealed that Game Of Thrones has become the most popular series in HBO history.
