The Wolfman’s Gemma Whelan cast in Game Of Thrones

The cast booms as Season Two creeps closers

Gemma Whelan, who played Gwen’s maid in Joe Johnston‘s 2010 remake of Universal horror classic The Wolfman, has been cast in the eagerly anticipated second series of A Game Of Thrones – the adult dynastic drama based on the fantasy novels of George RR Martin.

Whelan is on board to play Stark ward Theon Greyjoy’s sister, whose name has been changed from Asha to Yara – presumably to avoid confusion with Osha. This series is dense enough without the names adding to it!
