As season 3 of Game of Thrones starts casting, it has finally been announced that the supporting role of Mance Rayder has been cast. Mance Rayder should be well known to any fans reading the George RR Martin novels, but even fans who are watching the TV show only have likely heard the name, as it refers to the ‘evil wilding’ that rules north of the wall and plays villain to the brothers of the Nightwatch. So who will portray Rayder in the 3rd season of Game of Thrones? Why it’ll be Irish actor Ciarán Hinds playing Mance Rayder, who some of you might remember as Julius Caesar in HBO’s Rome or Aberforth Dumbledore in the 7th and 8th Harry Potter films, amongst many other great roles. Humorously, Hinds wont be the only Rome veteran playing a role in the next season of Game of Thrones, so lets begin sharing just who will play who for season 3.

Many major roles have already been cast for season 3 of the series, which covers the first part of the 3rd book in Martin’s Song of Icen and Fire, Storm of Swords. The only problem is that some of these roles exist for characters that should have already been introduced in the television series had HBO stayed closer to the source material. So below we have for you all a small listing of the actors and actresses playing various characters in season 3, a fairly spoiler free description of who the characters are, and some info on the actors themselves:
