It’s official! HBO announced today that David Tennant has filmed several episodes for the second season of hit series Game of Thrones. I suppose that means that I can die happy now, right?
Tennant has been cast as Gareth Bryne, a Westeros nobleman. For those of you who have read the A Song of Ice and Fire books, you’ll know that Gareth is one of the contenders for the Iron Throne (currently occupied by Joffrey Baratheon).
Tennant will appear in three episodes before his character meets a fiery end. That’s not a spoiler, by the way, because you should have read the books by now. Seriously, you have NO EXCUSE.
And if you’ve read this far, I hope you realize what today’s date is.
And I will give you bonus points if you can tell me what book series Gareth Bryne actually appeared in – leave me a comment!
