‘Game Of Thrones’ Prequel Recruits Naomi Watts

We officially have the first actor to board the highly-anticipated Game Of Thrones prequel. And it’s none other than the fantastic Naomi Watts. Anyone else as excited as me?

The 50-year-old actress will play “a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret.” Beyond that, the network isn’t sharing anything else about her character. This particular GoT prequel is being helmed by Jane Goldman. There are reportedly five prequels currently in development. The description for Goldman’s is below.

“Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.”
