Game of Thrones latest season will premiere on April 6, 2014 at 9 pm on HBO. We may have to wait till spring for the hit series, but that doesn’t mean we have to wait for our first look at Game of Thrones. HBO has released the first official photos of the fantasy hit’s highly anticipated fourth season. There are a set of 15 photos in which we spy new faces, old loves and a big battle to come.
Earlier in December last year, in a video that looked back over its 2013 season, HBO snuck in a sneak peek of the fourth season of Game of Thrones, reported E! Online. It spoke volumes about the quality of the show and the level of obsession with it, when fans were losing their minds over roughly eight seconds of new footage. Tyrion in cuffs, King Joffrey looking pensive, Sansa working some glorious hair and Jaime with a haircut is basically all that fans took away from the eight second GOT footage. But then again, it is Game of Thrones.
However, with just about two months left for the premiere, an influx of images of the new season has been delightful. Despite the bloodbath at the end of the last season, many familiar faces will be returning to screens. The pictures show ultimate favourites such as Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington. While they’re loaded with the requisite amounts of images of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow and Arya Stark, the stills also officially introduce fans to three new faces in Season 4: Pedro Pascal as Oberyn Martell (the Red Viper), Indira Varma as Ellaria Sand and Michiel Huisman as Daario Naharis.
You may say, Daario isn’t new, which is true, however, he’s been recast as Huisman after Ed Skrein (last season’s Daario) left the show. Huisman’s Daario has a completely different look. Viewers might be a bit confused by the makeover, but they’ll be too distracted by how great the Red Viper looks to notice that.
