More characters who will allegedly appear in “Game of Thrones” Season 5 have leaked onto the Internet via Winter Is Coming. A source tells the site about three new characters who will be in the upcoming season, though the report is not confirmed by HBO.
Two of the characters seem to point to a Season 5 flashback, which was hinted at in a previous reveal of Season 5 rumored characters. One of the new characters is a 12-year-old girl named “Imogen,” who WiC speculates could actually be young Cersei Lannister. The other is a brunette girl of the same age who the site believes could be her childhood friend Melara.
Those two characters tie back to Maggy the Frog, a fortune teller who Cersei meets in her youth at the tourney for King Aerys II. The fortune Cersei receives hugely affects her behavior into her adulthood, so it would make sense why this scene would be the first flashback of the series — if the casting reports are true, of course.
The other character said to be introduced is the Wildling Varamyr Sixskins. In the novels, Varamyr plays a role in the Battle at the Wall, which is happening in Season 4, episode 9, so it’s unclear what role he’ll have to play in Season 5 (again, if the casting is true).
“Game of Thrones” is currently renewed through Season 6.
