Meet the new characters in Game of Thrones (season 3)

Because we all need more characters to be in this show

At Comic-Con, HBO announced its new cast members for Season 3 of Game of Thrones. Since I'm only 30 percent through the book (Storm of Swords), some of these characters I don't know yet, but I'm happy that they cast Meera and Jojen Reed (Jojen is played by the guy who does the voice for Ferb in Phineas & Ferb, and he was also the young boy in 2002's Love Actually).

All other Throne-heads, feel free to squee at the new actors on the show.

HBO also announced the new season would start March 31, 2013, so I have about 8 months to finish the book (or get past the halfway point), since they are splitting Book 3 into two seasons.
