Episode 503: "High Sparrow"

Episode 504: "The Sons of the Harpy"

The High Sparrow Cast

The High Sparrow Cast

So continuing my individual postings for each new character that was announced in HBO's video Season 5 - New Cast Memberslets look at the High Sparrow.  This character is going to be an entirely new character for show-watchers, with no previous mentioning's or family connections.  The High Sparrow will be played by Jonathan Pryce, who has previously been in the The Pirates of The Caribbean movies as Governor Weatherby Swann.

Now I don't really wanna say to much about the High Sparrow, simply because any description about the character may be taken as spoiler for some.  For this reason HBO's description of the High Sparrow will be below the break.  So for those of you have not read the books don't read any further, and simply look forward to seeing this new character in season 5.

The High Sparrow was described in HBO's press release as:

A devout and pious man, the High Sparrow came to King’s Landing to serve those forgotten by much of the world – the poor, the downtrodden and the infirm – and quickly amassed a large following. His fellow believers have swarmed over the city, ministering to the lowest and decrying the corruption of the highest.

Possible slight spoilers at the end of this post, I try to be very vague.  So if you'r curious about my thoughts on this casting continue reading.

Season 5 Character Update

Thanks to a Winter Is Coming post we have a better idea as to some of the new characters we can expect to see in season 5 of Game of Thrones. With the recent news of HBO looking to film in Spain this next season this character update does a great deal to support the speculation that Spain will be used for shooting the Dornish scenes.

You can find all of the character information below the break, but be warned some of the information may be spoilerish.
