Have I mentioned that I am dying for the second season of HBO's adaptation of A Song Of Ice And Fire to start? Well, I am. As you all know, I adored the first season of "Game Of Thrones," and am patiently waiting for it to kick up again, even though it won't be until next year (ugh). But there's been a flurry of casting news about the second season, which will be based on George R.R. Martin's second novel, A Clash Of Kings, and I figured I'd catch y'all up.

The following is the confirmed list of new characters and the actors who will play them. If you're one of those who haven't read the books, you'll be confused. If you have, well, tell me what you think while doing your best not to give anything major away.


Oona Chaplin (who is actually the granddaughter of Charlie Chaplin): Jeyne Westerling
