9 new cast members have been revealed for season 5 of HBO’s flagship fantasy drama 'Game of Thrones'.

The announcement was made yesterday, via a short 2 minute video, at the San Diego Comic Con 'Game of Thrones' panel; consisting of cast members Kit Harington, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Gwendoline Christie, Natalie Dormer, John Bradley, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Rory McCann, Pedro Pascal and Rose Leslie, along with producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and writer George RR Martin.

Many of the new faces will play characters primarily based in the desert kingdom of Dorne, in particular new additions to the Martell family. From Oscar nominated actress Keisha Castle-Hughes, to high profile actor Jonathan Pryce, the new additions are a welcome sight and the casting has been done expertly (again). Check out each new member in the video below, and what they had to say on their upcoming journey in Westoros!
