For Game of Thrones fans, it’s gonna be a long wait for winter. Everyone’s favorite fantasy series isn’t coming back to HBO until next summer and season 7 hasn’t even started filming yet. But the rumors have started, and we may have the first word on some of the new characters coming to Westeros today on Nerdist News!
Game of Thrones fan site Watchers on the Wall broke the story about the new casting breakdowns, which includes a priest, city guards, a few warriors, a merchant, and a “lovely lady,” whom the report notes will be required to be naked. Nerdist News host and Master of Whispers Jessica Chobot has a few theories about where these new characters are located, and it involves some of the previously unused parts from the novels.
Remember Euron Greyjoy? If the show follows the books, then Uncle Euron could be targeting Old Town with his rebuilt fleet of Iron Born ships. That may mean that these new characters will be populating Old Town prior to Euron’s attack, which would also give Sam and Gilly people to interact with before the enemy fleet comes in. We already know that Daenerys is on her way to Westeros with her armies, her dragons, and her new allies from Dorne as well as Yara and Theon’s renegade fleet. Could Daenerys make a splash by saving Old Town from the Iron Born?
What do you think will happen next season on Game of Thrones? Let’s discuss in the comment section below!
