GAME OF THRONES Season 3 preview

HBO has aired a preview of the third season of Game of Thrones, which will start airing on 31 March 2013.



The video gives us our first good glimpse at a number of new characters in costume and make-up (screencaps from Westeros.org):


Clive Russell as Ser Brynden 'the Blackfish' Tully, Catelyn's uncle.


 Tobias Menzies as Ser Edmure Tully, Catelyn's younger brother and heir to Riverrun.


Nathalie Emmanuel as Missandei, a translator from Astapor.


Dame Diana Rigg as Lady Olenna Tyrell, the 'Queen of Thorns'.


Richard Dormer as Ser Beric Donarrion (replacing David Michael Scott, who played the character in one episode of Season 1).


Ellie Kendrick as Meera Reed, whose father was one of Ned Stark's oldest and closest friends.


Another shot of Meera, this time with her brother Jojen, played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster.

Looking pretty good so far. The promos also confirm that, after a lot of hand-wringing last season, Daenerys looks like she'll be kicking some backside this year. Also, what appears to be the set-up for a wedding or celebration. Interesting stuff.

Mira looks far too young.

Looking great!! Can't wait for the new season to start (and for me to do my usual crying "it's different in the book!" to my sisters, lol!).

Amazement!

Well Meera is only 16 so she looks about right to me. Her and Jojen seem so wise and experienced in the books you forget how young they are.

Surely the guy with the flaming sword is Thoros of Myr and not Beric Dondarrion?

What episode was Beric in season One? I don't remember him being anywhere. I've watched them all a bunch.

Beric was in 'A Golden Crown'. When the riverlands folk are complaining about Gregor burning them out of their homes, Eddard summons Beric and tells him to assemble a posse to go arrest Gregor.

Oh ok I just skimmed thru it last night too, I love the Drogo parts. I guess I just don't catch that being him.
