Brienne of TarthFinally, finally, HBO is releasing some brand-spankin' new stuff to help us get through this long-ass wait until March 31, 2013: the premiere date of Game of Thrones season 3!
Along with the new teaser, now we've got official photos of new cast members, like Diana Rigg, playing the sapient Lady Olenna Tyrell, Thomas Brodie Sangster as Jojen Reed, Ellie Kendrick as Meera Reed, his sister, and Clive Russell as Bryden "The Blackfish" Tully, among many others.
Eeeeee & excitement abound!
Of course, they couldn't leave out the much-missed old-school characters -- like Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth from season 2. So we went ahead and picked out some of the "best" (they're all oh-so-good) pics for your viewing pleasure. There's really nothing better than to spend a few minutes of one's day going through the awesomeness that is a slideshow full of Game of Thrones photos. Yeahhhh ... I wish I were kidding.
The production stills and teasers so far simply look incredible. HBO certainly doesn't do wrong with its casting and visuals, that we can all agree on. Ah, to be born again this bad-ass in another life ... from Tyrion to Daenerys to the hated King Joffrey and all the new characters, all of us fans are waiting with bated breath to see what happens in season 3!
How excited are you for Game of Thrones season 3? What do you think of all the new characters?
