The creatives for Game of Thrones might be gearing up to add a new Red Priestess character to the cast. The Huffington Post revealed today, June 25, that an audition video for the part of a character named “Kinvara” was supposedly uploaded to Vimeo over the weekend. This video seems to be the real deal since there was another leak recently that suggested a new Red Priestess character would be added to the show.
If these leaks are accurate, then this will be the third Red Priestess seen on GoT — besides Melisandre, another Varys and Tyrion saw one in Braavos.
Acc0rding to Handy, the supposed audition tape included spoilers for next season. Warning: Potential spoilers ahead…
1. The Red Priestess Kinvara makes her home in Meereen.
2. Tyrion and Varys will attempt to get her to help them sway the people to support Daenerys while she is still away.
3. Just as Thoros of Myr thinks that Beric Dondarrion is the mythic Azor Ahai and Melisandre went from believing it to be Stannis to then Jon, Kinvara believes that Daenerys is the one who was promised to save them all from the darkness as a servant of the Lord of Light.
4. The people of Meereen believe Stannis to be dead.
With more than a half of year of waiting ahead of fans, this news has made a lot of people happy.
True Detective has added another major star in their quest to get the most big names on television. True Detective season 1 starred Woody Harrellson and Matthew McConaughey and the two propelled the show to massive heights and cementing showrunner Nic Pizzolatos role in the television business.
Season 2 is also set to have a number of huge stars including Colin Farrell and Rachel Mcadams.
The show was an unexpected hit for HBO and was prized for both it’s interesting storytelling as well as some of the unique camera shots that were seeded throughout the show. Another interesting thing about True Detective is they are planning to replace the actors after every season.
This opens up the show to a number of actors who otherwise would ignore a television role due to the fact that they do not want to be committed to the show for a long period of time. The fact that they can now star on a huge tv show on HBO without a long term commitment is probably going to change the way that many television executives do business. Regardless, the team at The Aspire feel season 2 of True Detective is shaping up to be one of the most hotly anticipated series in recent television history. With such a stellar cast of actors and some of the best writers in the business it is hard to see where this crew can go wrong. True Detective Season 2 starts in June 2015.
