New Game of Thrones photos from the Entertainment Weekly November 26, 2010 issue have premiered. George R. R. Martin fantasy stories are coming to HBO. The pilot for the series was completed in November of 2009. HBO’s adaption follows “the fight for the throne of King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy), who rules over the land of Westeros with the help of Lord Eddard Stark (Sean Bean), while behind castle walls intrigue brews in the form of attempted murders, more than one incestuous liaison — and the dark backstory of Stark’s bastard son, Jon Snow (Kit Harington). Lena Heady plays Queen Cersei Baratheon, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is Jamie Lannister and Peter Dinklage is Tyrion Lannister.” From the pictures this looks like a cool new medieval series and being on HBO, no punches will be pulled with the content. With Rome and The Tudors gone and Spartacus: Blood and Sand on hiatus, this seems like a great sword and armor replacement show. Check out the photos below and leave your thoughts on them.
