‘Game of Thrones’ thrilling series of spilled surprises on its seventh installment include nine new characters and the disappointing delay of its much – awaited premier.

Watchers on the Wall must be lucky enough to have the first bite of the latest batch of cast members that will join GOT’s season 7 and we are but sharing the pretty good spoiler to everyone with a full description of each character.

Warrior, in the 35 – 45 age range. He is a tough-looking bruiser with the attack skills of a pit bull, and the actor must possess excellent fighting skills. He has a “considerable” amount of dialogue as well. They’re requiring a neutral and non-posh English accent.
Gate Guard, in his 20’s. He is the “Confident, straight-talking Northern lad with a charismatic face to play across a very excellent series of scenes.”
City Guard, in his 30’s. The show is casting for a city guard who seizes a suspicious-looking person on his nightly patrol. They require an RP accent for this one.
Merchant, in his 40’s. The merchant appears at an inn during a busy evening. They’re seeking a character actor, for a non-combatant role. His appearance is more open, including ethnicity/race.
Lovely Lady. The show is casting for an attractive young courtesan who is decisive and confident. It’s described as a “good speaking part” and casting notes that full nudity is required for this role.
Young Lord in his late 20’s. He’s a tall, handsome young lord, and the series is looking for a white actor who uses the RP accent.
Lieutenant, in his 20’s. The character is described as an athletic, physically fit, and disciplined warrior. They’re looking for someone not white, with Middle Eastern descent mentioned.

We can only stick with an extra inch of patience for now as the release of the upcoming season is put on hold until summer of 2017. Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explained the reason on the UFC Unfiltered podcast.

“No … we don’t have an airdate yet, but this year it’ll probably be a bit later. We’re starting a bit later because at the end of this season, ‘winter is here,’ and that means that sunny weather doesn’t really serve our purposes anymore. So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim, grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.”
