Ciaran Hinds cast as Mance Rayder on Game of Thrones S3
In a bit of very exciting casting news today, Rome's own Julius Caesar, actor Ciaran Hinds, has been cast as Mance Rayder, the leader of the Wildlings north of The Wall, who's also known as The King Beyond the Wall on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones.
Ciaran Hinds, who was recently seen on John Carter, is an excellent actor and I'm really excited about this news -- Though I have to admit I always saw the character as being more in his 40s, I'm more than certain that Hinds will bring the necessary gravitas for this important role.
Hinds is the second Rome actor to have been cast for the upcoming third season of Game of Thrones, the first one being Tobias Menzies who has already been announced as playing Edmure Tully, Catelyn Stark's (Michelle Fairley) younger brother and Lord of Riverrun.
