Rhys Ifans, Sonoya Mizuno, Steve Toussaint and Eve Best join the cast.

Ifans will play Otto Hightower, Hand of the King to King Viserys Targaryen. Toussaint joins the series as Lord Corlys Velaryon, better known as The Sea Snake, "the most famed nautical adventurer in the history of Westeros." Best will portray his wife, Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, a dragonrider who was "passed over as heir to the throne at the Great Council because the realm favored her cousin, Viserys, simply for being male." Mizuno rounds out the cast as Mysaria, whose official character description is:

"Mysaria came to Westeros with nothing and has been sold more times than she can recall. She could have wilted… but instead she rose to become the most trusted — and most unlikely — ally of Prince Daemon Targaryen, the heir to the throne."

I have not read any of GRRM's supplementary material on the world of ASOIAF because it is so Targaryen-centric and that's off-putting to me, given that he could explore so many other more interesting aspects of his world, but I find those photos quite intriguing.
