Game of Thrones Series 3 Characters Announced

It goes without saying that this article contains something tiny spoilers, but you won’t find out who dies or anything so you’re probably okay to keep reading.


So with the second series of Game of Thrones coming to an end (how good was this week’d episode by the way?) some HBO bods have released a list of characters that we can expect to see arriving in the third series. Those of you who’ve read the books will notice that some of this lot cropped up in the second book (Clash of Kings) but most of this lot are from George R R Martin’s third tome, A Storm of Swords.

Lastly, this list is not exhaustive..

– Mance Rayder: This bloke’s name has been going around all season but we’ll finally be getting a gander at him next year. The Wildling’s leader is a former member of the Night’s Watch who became the “King Beyond the Wallâ€?.

– Daario Naharis: A confident and seductive warrior.

– Jojen Reed; Meera Reed: A teenage brother and sister duo with special insights.

– Edmure Tully: A brash young member of the Tully family.

– Ser Brynden Tully (The Blackfish): Catelyn’s uncle.

– Lady Selyse Florent: Stannis Baratheon’s wife.

– Shireen: Stannis’ daughter.

– Olenna Redwyne (The Queen of Thorns): Margaery Tyrell’s sharp-witted grandmother.

– Beric Dondarrion: A skilled knight who is the leader of the outlaw group Brotherhood Without Banners.

– Thoros of Myr: A red priest who follows the same religion as Melisandre.

– Tormund Giantsbane: A Wildling raider.
