Here's everyone joining the cast of the 'Game of Thrones' prequel

After eight seasons, Game of Thrones has finally bid adieu. While people had much to say about the divisive final season - with some going as far as to call for a re-write - longstanding fans are understandably upset that their favourite television show has drawn to a close.

Luckily for them, GoT made enough money for producers to green-light a prequel, and we've already got a few confirmed cast members. In addition to Naomi Watts, a Poldark star is also going to be appearing in the series. So while we've been told not to expect anyone from the original series to appear on the show, there are plenty of new faces to look forward to.
