New ‘Game of Thrones’ character posters

HBO has released individual character posters for a dozen major players in Game of Thrones season 7. And while most of them are those we expect to see, there are still a few surprises.

Game of Thrones posterThe characters featured in these posters are the following:

House Stark: Arya (Maisie Williams), Sansa (Sophie Turner), Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), and Jon Snow (Kit Harington).

House Lannister: Cersei (Lena Headey), Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Tyrion (Peter Dinklage)

House Targaryen: Daenerys (Emilia Clarke)

And various other characters too: Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie), Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju), and Petyr Baelish/Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen.)

The inclusion of Tormund and Brienne is interesting since they are usually supporting characters on the show but it looks like they might be playing more pivotal roles in the coming season. And that might be a lot of fun for fans who are looking forward to seeing more of Tormund flirting with Brienne as he did last season (and maybe a possible Jaime-Brienne-Tormund love triangle? We can only hope.)

All the characters seem to be looking straight at the Night King, the leader of the White Walkers, and the greatest threat to the survival of Westeros.

This is just the latest promotional material released for Game of Thrones season seven with a new trailer just out as well as a photo of Daenerys Targaryen finally arriving in Westeros released earlier this week. With only two seasons left before the epic saga concludes, only seven episodes to air this year, and the final season possibly airing later than usual, the anticipation and excitement has reached fever pitch. But from what we’ve seen so far, we are not likely to be disappointed. Winter is Here and we are all ready for it.

Game of Thrones season 7 premieres on July 16 on HBO.
