'Games of Thrones' Prequel Casts Naomi Watts

In fact, the series description hints that we'll actually be diving deeper into several of the mysteries Game of Thrones has never fully explained: "It chronicles the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour". "It's a very different setting, a very different time in Westeros, It will feel different but still Game of Thrones", said Bloys, which has fans wondering about the factions, magic, and mystical locales of the upcoming series. For us, the rape of Sansa Stark was a clear line in the sand, where the show prioritized sexual violence over the treatment of its female characters. We don't know her name, but according to the outlet, she will be "a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret".

This lack of awareness no doubt stems from the nearly exclusively male writers room on the series. This particular project will be a prequel series from Jane Goldman. Benioff, Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill have written the final six episodes which are being directed by David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik, with Benioff and Weiss helming the series finale. She will also serve as showrunner.

The sisters "were students accompanying their brother in Washington", the Saudi consulate in NY said in a statement posted on Twitter Tuesday.


King Kong and Mulholland Drive actress Naomi Watts is to star in the Game Of Thrones prequel. Having a woman at the helm of the prequel series is a step in the right direction, and Goldman will hopefully work to hire more women writers and directors. "The readers among you might want to grab a copy of Fire & Blood when it is released on November 20, though". The show will take place between 8,000 and 10,000 years prior to the events of Game of Thrones, the first time the White Walkers marched south, when the First Men built The Wall.
