George R.R. Martin provides clues for another actor cast in a role for HBO’s Game of Thrones pilot that will begin filming this month. Given his previous item of news concerning “poor doomed souls” and the title of this post, the role that has been cast must be Gared, a veteran ranger of the Night’s Watch.
The clues are as follows:
“... has been a pig, a roach, and a fat friend. He’s been known to hang about with highlanders, rabbits, and dwarfs.”
In comments, it’s widely suggested that Richard Ridings has been cast in the role, as he fits all the given clues.
