Game of Thrones Season 3 Character List Revealed

While most of the characters on this list are showing up late to the party, I’m just happy that some of them didn’t get discarded all together. For the full list of the newly added characters for Game of Thrones Season 3, Hit the Jump

Mance Rayder: We’ve heard about him all season. A former member of the Night’s Watch who became the “King Beyond the Wall,” the leader of the Wildlings. 

Daario Naharis: A confident and seductive warrior. 

Jojen Reed; Meera Reed: A teenage brother and sister duo with special insights.

Edmure Tully: A brash young member of the Tully family.

Ser Brynden Tully (The Blackfish): Catelyn Stark’s uncle.

Lady Selyse Florent: Stannis Baratheon’s wife.

Shireen: Stannis’ daughter.

Olenna Redwyne (The Queen of Thorns): Margaery Tyrell’s sharp-witted grandmother.

Beric Dondarrion: A skilled knight who is the leader of the outlaw group Brotherhood Without Banners.

Thoros of Myr: A red priest who follows the same religion as Melisandre.

Tormund Giantsbane: A Wildling raider.

Even though we have seen Beric Dondarrion once before, it is not yet known if the same actor will reprise the role. Regardless, he is one of my favorite side characters from the books, and I can’t wait to see some more flaming swords. Entrainment Weekly ended off the new character list by saying there are many more they did not mention, so if someone you were expecting to make this list didn’t, your still in luck.
