Camelot Star Teases Game Of Thrones Casting

By on July 12, 2011

Clive Standen, known to genre fans as Gawain in Starz’ one season wonder Camelot, has made some interesting remarks regarding casting for Game of Thrones, season two.

Standen took to Twitter to reveal that he had heard some ‘massive casting news’ for the upcoming second season of the hit fantasy show from HBO (US) and SKY Atlantic (UK & Ireland).

@CliveStanden: Just heard some massive casting news for season 2 of GOT’s…3 amazing actors (one Camelot alumnus) great choices

@CliveStanden: …Actually 2 Camelot alumni…but only one from our show

The tweets strongly suggest that one of the three actors appeared with him on Camelot, while another has a Camelot or Arthurian connection.  There are currently no further hints as to who the remaining actor might be.

The camelot connection has led to some speculation that the actor may have appeared in the British fantasy adventure Merlin, which returns to the screen for a fourth season later this year.
