After long negotiations, Naomi Watts has a leading role in the prequel of the HBO hit series Game of Thrones.

The still untitled series takes place thousands of years before Game of Thrones, writes Deadline. The story describes the decline of the world during the golden age of the heroes.

The idea for a prequel of Game of Thrones comes from the British screenwriter Jane Goldman and Game of Thrones writer George RR Martin. The spiritual father has promised fans that the history of Game of Thrones “will not be the story that fans think they know”.

 

About the character of the fifty-year-old Watts, the makers do not want to lose much, except that they are going to play a “charismatic socialite that hides a dark secret”. None of the characters from the original series will be seen in the prequel.

The Dutch actors Michiel Huisman and Carice van Houten, among others, were seen in the HBO hit in recent roles.
