'Game of Thrones' Season 5 HBO Release Date, Spoilers, Main Cast Signs On For 7th Season with Huge Pay Raise
"Game of Thrones" Season 5 is currently filming and set to premiere in April 2015 but news of the sixth and seventh seasons are already coming out.
It was announced recently that the popular HBO show would be extended through a sixth season and now a seventh and presumably final season is going to happen. In order to retain much of the main cast for two more years, a big payday was in order according to THR. Cast involved in the deal (spoiler alert) is includes Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams.
"Game of Thrones" announced nine new characters that will be joining the show for the upcoming Season 5 at their 2014 Comic-Con panel. Alexander Siddig, Toby Sebastian, Nell Tiger Free, DeObia Oparei, Enzo Cilenti, Jessica Henwick, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, Keisha Castle-Hughes and Jonathan Pryce will all play key roles in "Game of Thrones" Season 5 and they have posted a video with short interviews of each new cast member (you can check out the video above).
Michelle Fairley, who plays the role of Catelyn Stark or Lady Stoneheart, told Entertainment Weekly that her character will no longer return to the series. "The character's dead. She's dead," she shared sadly.
She added the producers spoke with her and told her that Lady Stoneheart will not be revived in Season 5 or later either. "I knew the arc, and that was it. They can't stick to the books 100 percent. It's impossible- they only have 10 hours per season. They have got to keep it dramatic and exciting, and extraneous stuff along the way gets lost in order to maintain the quality of brilliant show," the actress said. In the book, Lady
Stoneheart does make a comeback, which is what Stark is referring to.
There were rumors that Lady Stoneheart will be revived for next season after actress Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, posted on her Instagram feed. Headey posted a photo on her Instagram that showed several stones arranged in a shape of a heart.
