The newspaper states that Ms. Castle-Hughes has been sharing the news of her casting with her friends. In addition to this, her Twitter activity would seem to point towards something Thrones related, in that she has traveled to London and Belfast recently, lauded the show, and followed numerous cast members.

At this time, it is unclear which daughter she may be playing, but we will be sure to update you as soon as we know. Hopefully we’ll get more news on this, and other castings, at the San Diego Comic-Con later this month.

Thanks to WiC for the tip.

Game of Thrones returns in Spring 2015. We’ll provide the exact air date as soon as we have it.

    Any comments with offensive language aren’t warranted. Come on folks, the writers try their best and from time to time, there might be a mistake. Once it’s duly noted, it will be corrected as soon as possible. No need to cuss.

    She’s from New Zealand you twats! Born and raised!

    • That’s my mistake, she was born in Australia so that’s what I went with originally. Changed now though.

      I would thank you, but your rudeness has overruled my gratitude.

        You’re right Cian, my apologies for my rudeness, have put myself in check!

    shes from new zealand not australia

    • Thanks! It was just an honest mistake, and it’s changed now.

    All this talk about Dorne in Season 5 is getting exciting. Having only read up to the third book, it seems like there’s so much build-up to the Martells and Dorne before even the appearance of Oberyn.

    • You’re in for a treat. You know the way Ned’s death kicked off a shitstorm of events in the North? Well, Oberyn just died…

      • Jason Godfrey

        Oberyn just died?! I thought that was a nightmare! That’s it! I’m not watching another episode until April! :P

    Nice tidbit, Cian!!
