Over 50 new images from season three of HBO’s Game of Thrones are now available. They feature all of your series favorites in addition to a bunch of new characters who will attempt to make their marks this year. As much fun as it is to check out the varied and detailed costumes worn across the lands of Westeros and beyond, it’s much more entertaining to see what kind of crazy expressions the actors pull (see Paul Kaye as Thoros of Myr above).
The series stars Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Michelle Fairley, Emilia Clarke, Alfie Allen, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, Jack Gleeson, Aidan Gillen, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Richard Madden, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Game of Thrones returns March 31st at 9pm (EST).
Here’s the synopsis for season three of Game of Thrones:
As season three begins, the Lannisters hold absolute dominion over King’s Landing after repelling Stannis Baratheon’s forces. Yet Robb Stark, King in the North, still controls much of the South as well, and has yet to lose a battle. In the Far North, Mance Rayder has united the wildlings into the largest army Westeros has ever seen. Only the Night’s Watch stands between him and the Seven Kingdoms, but nobody knows what happened to its Lord Commander and the force he led beyond the Wall. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen – reunited with her three growing dragons – ventures into Slaver’s Bay in search of ships to take her home and allies to conquer it.
