HBO just announced one of the stars of its upcoming ‘Game of Thrones’ prequel
HBO's first Game of Thrones prequel series is beginning to come together, as George R.R. Martin confirmed in a blog post last night that Naomi Watts has been cast in a lead role for the upcoming project. First reported by entertainment publications last night, details about the character Watts will play are unsurprisingly few and far between, but Variety says that Watts will be “a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret.”
One of five potential Game of Thrones spin-offs in the works at HBO, the series, penned by Jane Goldman and series creator George R.R. Martin himself, was the first to be picked up for a pilot order. It will take place thousands of years before the original series, and focus on the world's descent from the Age of Heroes.
