Ciaran Hinds Cast As Mance Rayder in 'Game of Thrones'
Last week I expressed some concern that the latest season of Game of Thrones was filming, and a pivotal character--Mance Rayder, a former member of the Night's Watch and the King Beyond the Wall--had yet to be cast.
HBO finally got around to filling the job--Mance Rayder will be portrayed by Irish actor Ciarán Hinds in season three, which debuts on March 31 (i.e., not soon enough). Hinds portrayed Caesar on HBO's Rome.
Not too shabby a choice. Hinds has the gravitas for the role--I just hope he nails the charisma. He probably will. The casting thus far has been top notch.
What do you think about the choice? Are you as excited for this show to come back as I am?
