Craster is a shaky ally to the Night's Watch and the master of Craster's Keep, which lies beyond the Wall. He is also known for his oppressive relationships with his 19 wives and many daughters, including Gilly, to be played by Hannah Murray on the show.
The actor is the latest to join the large and impressive guest cast for Season 2 of the HBO fantasy drama. The additions of Murray and Roy Dotrice broke earlier this week. Also in the cast: Liam Cunningham as Davos Seaworth, Stephen Dillane as Stannis, Carice van Houten as Melisandre, Gwendoline Christie as Brienne, and The Tudors's Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell.
Will he make a good Caster?
