Game of Thrones has had a cast that has been one of the biggest reasons for the show being such a hit, and while the original cast was great, the actors that have joined the cast over the years, have been equally good, which we know isn’t always the case for TV series. As Season 8 draws closer, we’re looking forward to all the new cast members we have heard we will be seeing on the show, and a new actress,Laura Elphinstone, has just been confirmed for a role in Game of Thrones Season 8. Read on!
The news comes from a report from Game of Thrones fan site, Watchers on the Wall, which says that English actor Laura Elphinstone will play a new character set to be brought into season 8. The information comes from her agency page, which lists her role in Game of Thrones Season 8 under the character name Nora, and she is said to have worked with “various” directors.
Now we know that Game of Thrones Season 8 will have 6 episodes, so multiple directors means multiple episodes. That makes this Nora character a seemingly important one. Watchers also notes that the “various directors” tag might be a filler, and Laura might feature in a short role in a single episode. Anything could happen.
Speaking of the character, there hasn’t been anybody by the name Nora in the books, but we have seen numerous cases of characters with new names or wrong names, based off of characters from the book, sometimes even mashups of multiple characters. Of course, again, chances are it could be a small role that doesn’t matter to the storyline. The actress herself has been seen on stage in a number of projects, and also has a few screen credits. However, to be sure about anything, looks like we’re gonna have to wait till the next year to find out.
