With the explosive season six finale of Game of Thrones, fans assumed it was a way to save money on a smaller cast and focus on the show’s most beloved characters in the final season. However, two new cast members were just added onto the show.
Actors Joseph Quinn and Paul Ward have been cast in roles for the final season of the HBO show. Quinn will be joining the show as a mysterious character named Koner; the name is not from any of the Song of Ice and Fire novels, but considering that the show is ahead of the books, it doesn’t mean too much. Ward’s character, however, has not been disclosed. Perhaps Ward’s character being shrouded in secrecy may mean that he is very well an important character.
Sadly, unless any further information is released, we’ll just have to wait until summer 2017 for season 7 of Game of Thrones to premiere. Until then, we’d love to hear your guesses or theories in the comments, as well as on our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
