Watch the new video from Comic-Con, introducing all of Westeros’ new players!

As if there weren’t already too many characters to keep track of on Game of Thrones, 14 new additions to the cast were announced this weekend at the show’s Comic-Con panel, along with the third season’s official premiere date: March 31! But rather than focus on the depressing news — I remain in denial that we have to wait nearly an entire year — let’s focus on all the newbies coming to Westeros in 2013.

Here’s a quick run down of who’s playing who:

Clive Russell — Bryndon “The Blackfish” Tully

Kerry Ingram — Shireen Baratheon

Tara Fitzgerald — Selyse Baratheon

Paul Kaye — Thoros of Myr

Diana Rigg — Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns
