More casting news for Season 2 of Game of Thrones!
When we last left off, we were wondering who would be dropped and who would make the final cut in casting for S2. Have no fear, fans of Dolorous Edd Tolett! We have news that British actor Ben Crompton (Ideal, Kill List) has been cast as the Night’s Watch squire. Check out Ben Crompton’s mug on IMDB and I’m sure you’ll agree that he looks the part of our dour Brother.
Speaking of the Watch, another wildling has been cast. Behold, the odious master of Craster’s Keep beyond the Wall will be played by Welsh actor Robert Pugh (Robin Hood, Master & Commander). I guess he looks pretty much like Craster, minus beard and general putrescence.
In even more northerly news, we have another casting! The role of Lord of the Dreadfort, Roose Bolton, (whose banner is the Flayed Man, yuck!) will be portrayed by Irish actor Michael McElhatton (Your Bad Self, Perrier’s Bounty), who has the perfect skeletal look to him.
More to come as casting news breaks!
