Stannis Baratheon & Melisandre Cast In <i>Game Of Thrones</i> Season 2

The biggest new additions to the soon to film second season of HBO's awesome fantasy drama series have been cast. Click to see who will be playing the ruthless Stannis and his sorceress Melisandre..

Fans of the Song Of Ice And Fire books by George RR Martin have been anxiously waiting to see who would be cast as Stannis in the second season of HBO's tv adaptation. Well now we not only find out, but also who will be playing his right hand woman as it were, Melisandre..



From EW..

Melisandre will be played by Carice van Houten, a Dutch stage and film actress. She’s appeared in the movies Valkyrie and Repo Men. I think you’ll agree she looks just about perfect for Melisandre.

And Stannis will be played by…

British actor Stephen Dillane, best known to U.S. audiences by playing Thomas Jefferson in HBO’s John Adams.


Fans of the book will know the roles these two play but for those that haven't read on to A Clash Of Kings..

These two major roles are paired together in the story: Melisandre is powerful woman who counsels the late King Robert’s older brother, Stannis Baratheon, in his quest to claim the Iron Throne. She’s described as a seductive force possessing prophetic powers who’s willing to impose her religion on the world by any means necessary. While Stannis believes himself to be the Iron Throne’s rightful heir. He’s described as humorless and authoritative, with a strict moral code, but is gradually succumbing to the power of his newfound religion.
