There’s still more than four months to go until the premiere of the third season of Game of Thrones, so to help ease the wait and further fuel anticipation for the next batch of episodes, HBO ran a brief teaser trailer prior to the latest episode of Boardwalk Empire, and now it’s made its way online for all to see. Before you get too excited, it’s only fifteen seconds in length and features no footage, but rather a voice-over teasing the epic action that’s coming our way in March 2013.
The third season of Game of Thrones is based upon the first half of A Storm of Swords, the third book in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, and will see the show’s already enormous cast bolstered by several newcomers to Westeros, including Brynden Tully (Clive Russell), Edmure Tully (Tobias Menzies), Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer), (Oldenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg), Ramsay Snow (Iwan Rheon), Selyse Baratheon (Tara Fitzgerald), Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye) and Orell (Mackenzie Crook), as well as Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds), the ‘King-Beyond-the-Wall’.
