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
Thomas Brodie-Sangster — Jojen Reed

Nathalie Emannuel — Missandei
Tobias Menzies — Edmure Tully
Anton Lesser — Qyburn
