‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4: Alliser Thorne Returns
Good news GoT book fans! British actor Owen Teale has announced that he will be reprising his role as Alliser Thorne in Game of Thrones Season 4.
Wales Online recently spoke to the Welsh-born Teale about his current theatre project, and in the interview, Teale revealed that he will be back for Season 4 of Game of Thrones.
This season’s 10 episodes will cover the second half of the third book in the series, A Storm of Swords and probably delve into events within A Feast for Crows.
Just in case you’re solely a tv show fan of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series, Alliser Thorne was last seen in season 1 of Game of Thrones. He is the Night’s Watch master-at-arms, and also trains new recruits who arrive at the Wall.
In the first season, Thorn tries to force the other new recruits to beat up Samwell Tarly, until Jon Snow comes to Sam’s rescue. This forever turns Thorne against Jon, and prompts him to come up with the mean-spirited nickname “Lord Snow.”
Lord Commander Mormont sends Thorne away from the Wall, to plead with Joffrey Baratheon to send more men to the Night’s Watch to fight the threat in the North.
In Season 4, we will see Thorne return to Castle Black, the same place Jon has journeyed back to.
Game of Thrones season 4 premieres in 2014 on HBO.
