James Cosmo Con of Thrones

The news just keeps on coming! Con of Thrones announced today that Game of Thrones actor James Cosmo has joined the special guest lineup for Con of Thrones 2018! Cosmo played the gruff Lord Commander Jeor Mormont of the Night’s Watch in the first three seasons of Game of Thrones.

Cosmo joins an ever-growing lineup of special guests including Game of Thrones cast members Hannah Murray (Gilly), Sibel Kekilli (Shae), Esmé Bianco (Ros), Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel),  Kate Dickie (Lysa Arryn), Sam Coleman (Young Hodor), and Aimee Richardson (Myrcella Baratheon), along with Game of Thrones sound designer Paula Fairfield, weapons master Tommy Dunne and popular podcasts A Storm of Spoilers, Bald Move and The Ringer’s Binge Mode.

The Scottish actor has had a legendary career, appearing in a massive variety of film and television series, with parts in movies such as Wonder Woman, Trainspotting, Braveheart, Troy, Highlander, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and many more. Not to mention a stint last year on the UK’s Celebrity Big Brother, where Cosmo won audiences’ hearts and went to the finals of the show.

Autograph and photograph experiences with special guests are now on sale. We also have programming news coming up, and more guest announcements are just around the corner, so stay tuned!

This will be year two for Con of Thrones, the premier convention for fans of Game of Thrones, A Song of Ice and Fire, and the epic worlds of fantasy author George R. R. Martin. This year it takes place at the Hyatt Regency Dallas in Dallas, TX, May 25-27, 2018. Tickets are on sale at ConofThrones.net!

      Ha! I remember I had to watch that movie with subtitles on once just to find out what he said in that scene. I assumed it was McCulloch, but was so damn hard to distinguish.

      I suppose Bella Ramsey is too young to attend these events? She’d be quite a draw: The Old Bear and the Baby Bear.

      I’d pay good money for an autographed replica of the note Stannis received from “that wretched girl” Lyanna Mormont, the Lady of Bear Island and a child of ten:

      “We know no king but the King in the North Whose Name is Stark.” 🐻

    7. Carole H,

      There’s that other quote I meant to look for… when he scolded Jon that if he wanted to learn to lead he had to learn to follow. Oh, and whatever he said when he gave Longclaw to Jon.

      James Cosmo: Such a good actor for such a good character.

    8. James Cosmo first came to my attention in an excellent 2007 episode of Midsomer Murders, “The Axeman Cometh,” and I’ve adored him ever since.

    9. Ten Bears,

      Words to the effect of:
      JM who am I , WHO AM I?
      JS Lord Commander Mormont
      JM do you want to lead some day?
      JS yes
      JM well learn how to follow
      I think he also points out that Jon is his steward
      I bloody love this programme!!!
