Naomi Watts To Star In Game of Thrones Prequel

The success of the novels and the show has launched Game of Thrones into the fantasy stratosphere, with a fan base rivaling Star Wars.

Deadline reports Josh Whitehouse (Poldark) has landed a lead role in HBO's upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series. Watts is playing a character described as "a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret".

Just because this series is set millennia before Game of Thrones, that doesn't mean we won't be getting our fair share of Westerosi history. It was the winning pitch out of five, though HBO hasn't ruled out using one of the other scripts for some objective. My vote would be THE LONG NIGHT, which says it all, but I'd be surprised if that's where we end up.

In the rest of his blog post, Martin noted that Watts had been cast and that showrunner Jane Goldman was in the process of casting still over in London. The Paint Hall has been previously used for shooting some parts of Game of Thrones.

Casting announcements are continuing to roll out for HBO's Game of Thrones prequel pilot from Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service) and author / Game of Thrones co-executive producer George R.R. Martin.

As yet, the only cast member announced is Naomi Watts, the 50-year-old actress best known for films such as The Ring, King Kong, Eastern Promises and The Impossible. Earlier in the year, Martin confirmed that the Game of Thrones prequel will indeed be about The Long Night. No details about Whitehouse's character or storyline were revealed. In HBO's released outline, the show will also tell the story of how the White Walkers rose from out of the maybe they had something to do with that Long Night.

But the missing child report was withdrawn after it was claimed she was living with her elder sister in New York City. NY police Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea told The Washington Post "they were not in the water that long".

This might be a clever marketing ploy, but considering how infamous the Targaryen family has become over the last seven years, it would be a natural starting point for a new TV series.

"I could not be more excited". Goldman and Martin wrote the story, with Goldman writing the teleplay.
