Miranda Richardson Joins ‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Pilot


Variety reported, the prequel pilot of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ has added Miranda Richardson to the cast.

Richardson, who was well known for her role as Rita Skeeter in the Harry Potter franchise, will join the untitled pilot as a series regular. 

There’s no official details about her role as of now. 

The “Game of Thrones” prequel is set thousands of years earlier than the story audiences know now, and “chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour,” according to HBO. The series promises to unravel “the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend.”
