It’s not often that we have much in the way of Game of Thrones season 8 casting news; with that, we’re glad to be able to report this today.
Due to some research from the fine folks over at Watchers on the Wall, Christopher Robin actress Bronte Carmichael has been cast for some sort of reasonably-important role on the upcoming batch of episodes. In terms of the finer details, not too much is known — though she could be playing the part of “Northern Girl,” which was speculated about months ago. Could this be someone factoring into the inevitable chaos at Winterfell? That feels reasonably possible at present.
Game of Thrones season 8 is going to remain in production from now until we get around to, presumably, the summer or even the fall. There is no apparent rush for this season to wrap up mostly because there is a need to ensure that all of the battle scenes are perfect. This is going to be the most action-packed edition of the series to date. To go along with that, we could also be looking at some of the longest episodes so far. There isn’t a whole lot known about the story at this point, mostly because showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are now a reasonably stretch ahead of where the book series by George R.R. Martin is. They may have some input from him as to where this story ends but beyond that, they have to craft their own path forward towards giving what they believe to be the best conclusion possible.
Remember that the Game of Thrones premiere is not slated to be, regrettably, until 2019. Bronte Carmichael will be joined by a number of familiar faces, of course, but there could also be a few newcomers sprinkled in there, as well. Game of Thrones, really no matter how it ends at the moment, is going to go down as one of the most epic series in HBO series. It is already their most-successful series ever on the air.
