Winter has finally arrived in Game of Thrones Season 7. With that, the show is delayed and spoilers reveal a possible wedding for Jon Snow supported by some new casts.
Two new British cast are joining the show, Joseph Quinn and Paul Ward, according to The Independent.
Quinn, previously seen in BBC’s Dickensian taking the role of Arthur Havisham, is going to play Konar – a character that does not exist in the books yet.
The character of Vikings (2013) and Penny Dreadful‘s (2014) Ward is yet to be named.
Also recently, a new actor is seen on the set with Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Liam Cunningham (Davos) and Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) in spoilers. Because of the actor’s likeness with Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), fans initially believed she is Turner’s double.
But a notable Game of Thrones fansite noted that she may actually really be a new cast. Identified as Megan Parkinson from another report by The Independent, she is an alumni of National Youth Theatre. She is seen in To Walk Invisible (2016) as Martha Brown.
One of the reasons to note that she is not Turner’s double is her costume, according to the publication. Her costume is plain with a sword belt, which is not Sansa Stark’s look.
Previously, there was a casting call for a “Northern girl” and boy in Season 7. The boy who was cast for the role is seen with Parkinson on the set.
This just sparked previous rumors on spoilers of Jon Snow’s marriage. These speculations even included Jon Snow to be wed with Sansa Stark which made a lot of fans cringe.
One role speculated for Parkinson is Alys Karstark whom Jon Snow married in the books.
Meanwhile, the show’s premiere is delayed because, as what the Starks always say, winter is coming. With that, the showrunners felt that the storyline would be best told “when the weather is changing.” Thus, instead of a spring, the series will start later in the summer months.
Filming for Game of Thrones Season 7 will wrap on February 2017.
