An audition video has popped up on Vimeo, and it appears to be for the upcoming fourth season of HBO's Game of Thrones.
This audition is from a Dutch actor named Yorick van Wageningen (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), and he appears to be reading for a wildling character called Styr, the Magnar of Thenn, whom we've yet to see, but who appears in A Song of Ice and Fire’s third book A Storm of Swords.
Looks like the audition shows there’s a bit of confrontation between Styr and Tormund Giantsbane, who is played by Kristofer Hivju.
Not only are audition videos are a blast to watch, but this seems to confirm that the character of Styr will indeed appear, even though there was no trace of him in season three (he was one of the wildlings sent by Mance Rayder, played by Ciaran Hinds, to climb the Wall), and that casting for the fourth season of Game of Thrones is indeed underway.
Will HBO go the same route as last year and blow our minds with a major casting announcement at this year’s Comic-Con? That remains to be seen.
Before we go, we'd like to know which book three and four characters you're most looking forward to see in the upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones? Our personal favorite? The Red Viper of Dorne, Prince Oberyn Martell.
