The Final Major Character In Game Of Thrones Season 2 Has Been Cast

The Final Major Character In <i>Game Of Thrones</i> Season 2 Has Been Cast

And it's another fan favorite; Night's Watch hardcase Qhorin Halfhand. George R.R Martin made the announcement via his blog..



Following up the announcement that Rose Leslie has been cast as Ygritte Martin posted the following on his blog..

And seeing as how we've added a wildling to the cast, it's only fair that we add a man of Night's Watch too.

Playing Qhorin Halfhand will be SIMON ARMSTRONG.

Simon is a veteran of stage and screen, and another great addition to our cast. Whether or not he is willing to have half his hand chopped off to better portray Qhorin remains to be seen...


Armstrong has appeared most recently in Killer Elite and the little seen but excellent Made In Dagenham. Martin has said that Qhorin would be the last major character cast in season 2 of the HBO series with just a handful of minor parts still to be filled. Qhorin Halfhand is a veteran of the Night's Watch who teams up with Jon Snow for a very dangerous mission at the beginning of the second book in the series. Expect the show to follow suit there. He is well known to The Wildlings because of the vast number of them he has killed, a reminder of which he carries on his shortened hand
