Game of Thrones Season 2 casting: part 8

Patrick Malahide is playing Balon Greyjoy. A minor role, but a solid actor, and he looks scary and mean, so I guess he'll do fine. I actually hope his role is expanded, compared to the book.

Oona Chaplin - the legendary Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter - is playing Jeyne Westerling of the Crag - a role that I can't say anything about without spoiling an important moment from the second book for people who are only watching the show. Suffice to say, she looks perfect for the role.

Laura Pradelska plays the mysterious woman Quaithe whom Daenerys meets during her travels. Quaithe wears a mask the entire time, which is sad, cause Pradelska is a really beautiful woman. Oh well...

Forbes KB (like, seriously?!) plays the ironborn raider Black Lorren. Another minor role, but the guy looks mean and scary, plus we've already seen that characters get different amount of time on the show than they do in the book.
