The more you ask for it, the more you’ll know. And this is what we heard about the upcoming season of HBO’s hit TV series “Game of Thrones” from the film students at an event in Spain.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the series creator, D.B Weiss and David Benioff revealed that they will be featuring the first-ever flashback scene in the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones“. The report came in after a Spanish website reported about the series creator’s Q&A session with the film students in Spain. Both Weiss and Benioff revealed to the students that their first-ever flashback scene might be the season’s opening scene.
The rough translation of the quote here:
By making the first season, we set a rule: No prophecies, dreams or flashbacks. We failed the first two and this season the third. So yes, this season will finally have flashbacks.
It is not known which character will appear in the flashback scene but rumour has it might feature Tywin Lannister (played by Charles Dance) despite being killed off by his son, Tyrion Lannister (played by Peter Dinklage). On top of that, it was reported that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is the latest actor to join the cast of “Game of Thrones” Season 5.
Best known for his role as Mr. Eko in “Lost” and Algrim in “Thor: The Dark World”, our source said that the actor is set to portray Malko, a new character that has not appeared in the books. No details about the new character yet but Mashable reported that Malko could possibly be “Moqorro”, the priest of the Lord of Light, R’hllor in the book.
More details about the new season might be revealed in the future but for now, what do you think about the casting news? Which flashback scene do you think they will feature in the series? Let us know in the comments box below!
