Thanks to WiC, we now have yet more news about casting for the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones.
Actress Elizabeth Webster will be portraying Fat Walda Frey, according to her CV. Walda is the granddaughter of Walder Frey, and the new “fat young bride” of Roose Bolton, as mentioned by him in The Rains of Castamere. Her inclusion in the cast seems to suggest that we may be seeing a lot more of Roose.
Also, Lu Corfield has been cast as the “Mole’s Town madame“. Ms. Corfield will be recognizable from her role as Freya Wilson in BBC’s Doctors. Mole’s Town is of course a village south of the Wall where members of the Night’s Watch frequently sneak off to in order to break their chastity vows.

On top of this, WiC reports that:
[Their] sources are reporting that Noah Taylor is indeed returning as Locke, and that the Bolton bannerman who took Jaime Lannister’s sword hand will be taking the black with the Night’s Watch in season 4.
Author’s Note: This is significant news, indeed. I am particularly intrigued by the casting of Walda and the rumors about Locke, as it signifies an increase in emphasis on House Bolton in season 4. Things could become very, very interesting if Locke is sent to the Wall. I look forward to seeing it!
Game of Thrones Season 4 will premiere in spring of 2014. We’ll provide an exact air date here when we have it.
