Then comes Paul Kaye as the Red Priest of R'hllor, Thoros of Myr, a member of guerilla group, the Brotherhood Without Banners. 

And fellow Brother-Without-Banner, Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer). 

Who else, but Diana Rigg as the formidable Queen of Thorns, Lady Olenna, grandmother to Margaery and Ser Loras Tyrell and newcomer to King's Landing.

Presenting the frog-eating Reed siblings, Jojen and Meera, played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Ellie Kendrick. 


Followed by the man himself, King-Beyond-The-Wall and former member of the Night's Watch: Mance Rayder, played here by Ciaran Hinds. 

And finally, the characters you know and love. In order, the Starks (Arya, Sansa, Bran, Jon, Robb & Talisa Maegyr, and Catelyn). Then it's Ygritte, and the Lannisters (Cersei, Joffrey & Margaery Tyrell, Tyrion, Tywin and Jamie.

Technically the character was briefly in season 1 but that's Beric Dondarrion in the second-to-last picture, not Davos.

Of course it is. Fixed! Thanks

Thats not how I expected the Unsullied to look :/ ah well
EDIT: after re-reading their description on a wiki of ice and fire I guess it was just my poor reading the first time round that gave me a different image of them


The kid with no legs looks like a young Steve Coogan.

These people are all clothed....what gives?

No it isn't , thats Stannis Baratheon.

you know nothing Jon Snow

Poor old Rickon.

Mance Rayder should be played by someone younger!

I'm just coming to the end of Book 5 and I'd almost forgotten where series 3 was going to pick up. So much GoT goodness to come!

Won't Phineas get lonely? Gotta love Thomas Brodie-Sangster, he's a fantastic actor!

Khaleesiwith an army!!!!

Definitely thought they'd be fatter cuz, ya know, eunuchs.

Expecting them all to look and behave exactly like Varys :(
