García Jr. posted, “Most of the auditions — not all, but most — are done, and we should be able to announce some more cast members shortly. We have our Tanselle, Steely Pate, Baelor Breakspear, the Laughing Storm, a couple of Fossoways, Aerion Brightflame (boo, hiss), Prince Maekar, and the rest. Lists are being built on Ashford Meadow. I am told they just had the first table read, and that it went great.

García Jr. mentioned that we do know that young actor Dexter Sol Ansell will play Egg. He referenced Martin’s blog post where the author shared a video of Ansell getting his head shaved for the role.
