The casting directors are looking for a black male actor, and the rest are Caucasians, mostly Scandinavians or Germanists.
Game of Thrones' untitled pre -cel will be written by Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass) and Martin himself.
Goldman will write the script on an act which she and Martin had worked out together.

Martin has teased that the new series might be called The Long Night, which certainly has a good Game of Thrones reputation.
The first season of Game of Thrones returns in the spring of 2019, and the prequel is expected to be one year later in 2020.
