AceShowbiz - Amid the drought of details of upcoming much-anticipated season 8 of "Game of Thrones", alleged full cast list of its season opener has surfaced online. The semi-official info is obtained through HBO's official site for the hit medieval series.
Shared by Watchers on the Wall, the list was discovered as a fan were looking for future episode URLs on the HBO website, which allowed access to the page created for the episode. The site offers the long cast of characters for the hour-long episode.
Some names, including Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Emilia Clarke, are pretty much expected to appear in the first episode, but fans notice that there are some actors who are surprisingly included in the list. The list suggests that Robin Arryn (Lino Facioli) and Edmure Tully (Tobiaz Menzies) are set to make unexpected returns.
Little Robin is last seen in season 6, in which he was being manipulated by Littlefinger to march the Knights of the Vale north. Meanwhile, Edmure Tully is pressumed to be dead since Arya didn't free him from the Twins in the season seven premiere. It's surprising to see him returning, prompting fans to wonder about his story.
Other supporting and secondary characters who are expected to appear in the first episode of season 8 are Anton Lesser as Qyburn, Hafpor Bjrnsson as the Mountain, and Pilou Asbæk as Euron Greyjoy. Rupert Vansittart, Bella Ramsey and Richard Rycroft, who portray Yohn Royce, Lyanna Mormont and Maester Wolkan respectively, are also among characters on the list.
However, since they put Menzies and Facioli at the end of the list, it may indicate that the two will make only a brief appearance in the episode.
The eighth and final 6-part season of "Game of Thrones" will premiere on Sunday, April 14 on HBO.
