Without revealing spoilers, the flashback involves Cersei and a friend of hers visiting with an older woman called Maggy the Frog.
Casting news has been hard to come by lately, but our sharp-eyed readers noticed a name added to the show’s IMDB credits. A quick visit to the actress’s agency resume has confirmed the casting, so it’s official: Nell Williams will be playing the role of young Cersei.
Williams was a regular on The Revolting World of Stanley Brown, the CBBC sitcom that starred Dean-Charles Chapman.
And there’s one more casting notice….
According to her Spotlight CV, the character’s name is Ghita. There is no further information on the part. The name feels more Essos-style. Perhaps she is somewhere in Dany’s storyline, or maybe she is the ill child referred to in this casting call for the father?
Sue the Fury: Well, Williams is a lovely young actress, and she looks great for the part. It’s interesting that she co-starred with Chapman, and now she’s playing his mom.
