Styr the Magnar of Thenn Cast

That’s right casting news is still coming out as filming is just wrapping up. HBO has officially announced through Entertainment Weekly that Yuri Kolokolnikov will be taking the reins of Styr in season 4.

So who is Styr, the Magnar of Thenn?  Well first lets get this out of the way, Styr is his name, and Magnar of Thenn is his title.  Magnar means ‘lord’ in the Old Tongue, the Old Tongue being the language brought over by the First Men.  The language has died out in Westeros, only being spoken in the lands beyond the Wall.  The last part of his title, Thenn, is the region where he is from.  Thenn is the northernmost area beyond the Wall, resulting in a very tough breed of people.  So now that you understand his title, there’s not to much else you really need to know.
