Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter) has become the latest addition to the cast of HBO’s as-yet-untitled Game of Thrones prequel pilot.
Richardson joins a growing cast that includes Naomi Watts (Gypsy), Josh Whitehouse (Poldark), Naomi Ackie (Lady Macbeth), Denise Gough (Colette), Jamie Campbell Bower (Camelot), Shella Atim (Harlots), Ivanno Jeremiah (Black Mirror), Georgie Henley (The Spanish Princess), Alex Sharp (How to Talk to Girls at Parties), and Toby Regbo (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald).
The official description for the as-yet-untitled pilot (which is being directed by Jessica Jones’ S.J. Clarkson and may or may not be called The Long Night) reads:
“Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.”
Before we get to this pilot, we have the eight and final season of Game of Thrones launching on April 14th. Watch the trailer here.
