Although many details about the project remain hidden, the prequel series for Game of Thrones has tapped two-time Oscar nominee Naomi Watts as one of its stars.
Signed up to pilot in June, the series is set thousands of years before the events of the main HBO series. The story follows the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into a time of darkness and desolation.
The logline that has been released by HBO teases the show but holds back on any real details:”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.”
No character name has been revealed but Watts’ character is described as a charismatic socialite who’s hiding a dark secret.
