Game of Thrones: Season 5 – New Cast Members

I’m VERY excited to see Alexander Siddig (ST: DS9; Syriana) on a regular series again!  I was surprised at first, BUT now it makes great sense (his looks fit for a Martell).  Also, it’ll be interesting to see Jonathan Pryce (a veteran actor of great stature) and the Oscar-nominated Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider; The Nativity Story), who’s now ALL grown-up.
