This afternoon, HBO announced the new cast members for the upcoming fifth season of Game of Thrones, and released a short video wherein the primary players introduce themselves. The casting looks perfect across the board, with luminaries such as Jonathon Pryce (more than one hundred credits over the last forty years, including the starring role in Brazil (1985)), genre favorites like Alexander Siddig (Dr. Julian Bashear in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), and experienced young actors like Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider). Click through for introductory video, as well as brief introductions of each actor and the role they’ll be playing.

Whether it be as a stable worker at Winterfell, a companion and bearer of Bran Stark, or as a warg’d fighter of incredible strength, Hodor is one of my favorite characters in Game of Thrones. He doesn’t have a lot of lines, but Hodor actor Kristian Nairn manages to put a whole bunch of emotion into it every time he says his name. Below, I’ve collected several shots of Kristian Nairn both in and out of character, and have an interesting take on the title song that fans of Hodor will appreciate.
