Official Cast of Game of Thrones

It has been awhile since I posted my cast fantasy for A Song of Ice and Fire - back in early '08, actually. The pilot for the TV Show is coming out 2010 and will be called Game of Thrones, which is what the first book for the series is called.

I'm ecstatic to find out that Eddard Stark will be played by Sean Bean! He was my choice to play Eddard!

Here's the official list of cast for the TV Show Game of Thrones, according to IMDB:

Harry Lloyd - Viserys Targaryen (1 episode, 2009)
Mark Addy - Robert Baratheon (1 episode)
Alfie Allen - Theon Greyjoy (1 episode)
Sean Bean - Eddard Stark (1 episode)
Esmé Bianco - Red Headed Whore (1 episode)
Jamie Campbell Bower - Ser Waymar Royce (1 episode)
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau - Jaime Lannister (1 episode)
Peter Dinklage - Tyrion Lannister (1 episode)
Ron Donachie - Rodrik Cassel (1 episode)
Jennifer Ehle - Catelyn Stark (1 episode)
Jack Gleeson - Joffrey Baratheon (1 episode)
Iain Glen - Ser Jorah Mormont (1 episode)
Kit Harington - Jon Snow (1 episode)
Lena Headey - Cersei Lannister (1 episode)
Richard Madden - Robb Stark (1 episode)
Joseph Mawle - Benjen Stark (1 episode)
Rory McCann - Sandor Clegane (1 episode)
Ian McNeice - Illyrio Mopatis (1 episode)
Tamzin Merchant - Daenerys Targaryen (1 episode)
Jason Momoa - Khal Drogo (1 episode)
Richard Ridings - Gared (1 episode)
Donald Sumpter - Maester Luwin (1 episode)
Sophie Turner - Sansa Stark (1 episode)
Bronson Webb - Will (1 episode)
Maisie Williams - Arya Stark (1 episode)

Here's hoping it will become a success and they will have an ongoing TV series. Towards the end of the book series (so far), apart from Jon Snow and Sandor Clegane, I was leaning towards Little Finger as my fav character. It will be good to see him in the TV series.

Anyway, even though the much anticipated follow up to the book is still not completed, at least there's the TV show to look forward to.
