HBO is becoming a bit more coy with their casting information for Game of Thrones. They’re making fans do a lot of the leaking at the moment.
Oona Chaplin (Inconceivable, Married Single Other) has been confirmed as Jeyne. But Jeyne is a very popular name in Westeros and we have two major characters: Jeyne Pool, the daughter of Winterfell’s steward and Sansa’s companion, and Jeyne Westerling, a girl that… well, that would be a spoiler. HBO isn’t telling us which one, or if she’s neither.
And what about locations? Croatia has finally been officially confirmed, but there has been plenty of chatter from WiC net which secured it as a filming spot for Season 2 for the past few weeks. HBO’s press release took no-one by surprise.
Something that may surprise A Song of Ice and Fire fans is the casting of another small role. Forbes KB (A Day of Violence) will play Ironborn reaver Black Lorren. Aren’t they afraid Lorren sounds too much like Yoren? Either way, there are a lot of other characters we are waiting to see cast! *cough* Podrick *cough*
And also in more furtively announced news, accomplished stage actress Laura Pradelska hath tweeted that she will be playing Quaithe of the Shadow, priestess of Asshai.
