Game of Thrones Season 2 – Carice van Houten and Stephen Dillane as Melisandre and Stannis
The second season of A Game of Thrones is getting a touch of magic according to EW.com, as Carice van Houten joins the cast as the sorceress, Melisandre. Van Houten has been seen before alongside Tom Cruise in Valkyrie and with Jude Law in Repo Men, but it’s probably safe to say that even those films won’t match the exposure she’ll get with A Game of Thrones. Melisandre, a “red priestess” described as “a seductive force possessing prophetic powers that’s willing to impose her religion on the world by any means necessary,” enters the picture as someone that counsels Stannis Baratheon, King Robert’s eldest younger brother, in his quest for the Iron Throne.
Stannis, who was hilariously described in Season 1 as having “the personality of a lobster” will be portrayed Stephen Dillane (Thomas Jefferson in HBO’s John Adams). He’s known for having a strict moral code but the power of his new-found religion might be too much for him to resist.
If you’re lucky enough to be hanging around San Diego this week, try to get into Comic-Con this because Game of Thrones author, George R.R. Martin, is moderating the first panel.
