'Game of Thrones' Prequel Adds Five More Stars to Cast!

The Game of Thrones prequel is expanding its cast!

The upcoming prequel pilot being developed by HBO has added five new stars to its ensemble cast as of Wednesday (March 27), Deadline reports.

Marquis Rodriguez of When They See Us, John Simm of Strangers, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams star Richard McCabe, Dracula‘s John Heffernan and Dixie Egerickx of The Secret Garden will appear as series regulars in the upcoming pilot, penned by writer Jane Goldman and Game of Thrones co-executive producer George R.R. Martin.

The untitled prequel “takes place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones and chronicles the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend — it’s not the story we think we know.”

The new cast members join an array of previously announced stars including Naomi Watts, Josh Whitehouse and Naomi Ackie.
