The latest bit of cast news is here, and this one comes as quite a shocker. According to Straun Rodger’s CV he will be taking on the role of the Three-Eyed Raven.
So far in A Game of Thrones there is not much information about the Three-Eyed Raven, aside from the fact that it has been visiting Bran’s dreams ever since he was pushed from the tower at Winterfell all the way back in season 1.
I’m a bit surprised in a way to see that they have already cast the Three-Eyed Raven, as he doesn’t make a full appearance until A Dance with Dragons. But of course with the way they have sped up Bran’s story line, reaching the Wall at the end of season 3, it makes sense that things would have to start happening sooner.
As far as Straun goes I think he looks perfect for the role of the character. And Straun an experienced actor, so I think he will do a fantastic job with the role.
The fact that we have an actor cast for the role of the Three-Eyed Raven (yes I’m going to continue to call him that, just in case there are some non book readers who didn’t listen to the warning) doesn’t necessarily mean Bran and his companions will reach their destination. Straun could simply be seen in some of Bran’s dreams, similar to the way Jojen was initially introduced to the viewers. If they go as far as having Bran reach the cave at the end of season 4, I’m gonna be a little worried about what Bran’s story line in season would be. All together I think this is a very interesting piece of information, and I can’t wait to see how it plays out.
