    I am most excited about Kristofer Hivju! Thanks for the update. I’m hoping the next season will bring more Tyrion (who I’m having a mild love affair with) and Jorah Mormont, who I’m eager to see develop as a character.

      You are one of many who probably feels that way about Tyrion. I’ve loved Dinklage since The Station Agent. Tyrion is clearly the best character on the show (and in the books). Only….259 days to go!
