Game of Thrones season 2 films in Ireland in a month, and they’ve begun casting the new characters who will enter the story. Some are minor, while some will go on to be serious leads. This character, Margaery Tyrell, is so far someone right in the middle.
Margaery Tyrell is the beatiful sister of Loras Tyrell, the pretty young gay lover of Renly Baratheon. Renly, the brother of dead king Robert, left King’s Landing and declared himself for the throne at the end of the first season. He also happens to be Margaery’s husband. Yes, he’s boffing his wife’s brother.
The actress playing Margaery is Natalie Dormer, who has some period piece experience thanks to playing Anne Boleyn on The Tudors. Now just tell us who’s playing Stannis and Brienne!
