As Season 4 filming gets well underway, we start to have another slue of casting announcements comes along the wire.
Elizabeth Webster is set to be cast as Walda Frey in the upcoming season. She is the the grand-daughter of Lord Walder Frey and is set to be the young new wife of Roose Bolton. She has acted in TV series such as the hit British TV Drama “Call The Midwife” and “The Bloody Mary Show”.
Another casting announcement is of Lu Corfied who will be playing a Mole’s Town madame in the new season. She is most notably known for playing Dr. Freya Wilson in the TV Drama “Doctors”. She has also acted in “The Woman in Black” voicing Jennet.
Interesting news also from over at Winteriscoming.net, apparently Noah Taylor is indeed returning as Locke in season four but he is also going to be sent to the Wall along with the other Bolton bannermen who stood by while Jaime Lannisters hand was cleavered off. Interesting dynamic the show is introducing. I wonder what they are going to do with it. Comment below on what you think is likely to happen!
According to sources at Winteriscoming.net, the actor playing Tomenn Bartheon has been replaced by Dean Charles Chapman.
15 year-old Dean has been in a few films of note in his acting career including in The White Queen, The Revolting World of Stanley Brown and also in the upcoming film Before I Go to Sleep. Dean has actually been in Game of thrones before, playing one of the two Lannister boys that Rickard Karstark gets axed for murdering.
It is an interesting turn of events, but likely most people watching the show will remember him at all considering he has been missing from the show for a season.
We still await HBO’s conformation of this recast
