Martin’s fantasy series, Game of Thrones, featuring Sean Bean as Eddard Stark, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jamie Lannister, and Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, and Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo.From Empire Online:
Game of Thrones, the upcoming fantasy series, is based on George RR Martin's twisted novels.
The story centres on two houses, both alike in dignity: the Starks - led by Sean Bean's Eddard - and the royal Bartheons - led by Mark Addy's Robert. Complicating matters are Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and her family, particularly brothers Tyrion (Peter Dinklage, pictured) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).
Then there's exiled, deposed heir to the throne Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), who's about to be married off to barbarian leader Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa).
