Casting has just about wrapped up for the second season of HBO's fantasy drama Game of Thrones. As it stands, sixteen new faces have been added to the cast, though some of those will only be in guest or recurring roles. Still, it's not an insignificant number for a show with a cast so large already.
To help you make sense of it, TVOvermind has compiled a list of all the new cast members, along with basic information about the character they're playing and the actors' backgrounds. There's nothing too spoilery here, though if you're wanting to avoid introductory details about new characters, it's probably best that you don't read ahead.
We'll be adding new additions to the cast to the end of this article as we go, though we're fairly sure that there won't be too many more new faces added.
