With the gap between now and the new season getting smaller, we’ve been getting a ton of new looks at the return of HBO’s critically acclaimed show ‘Game of Thrones’. With all of the teaser trailers, production blogs, and stills, we’ve been bombarded with non-spoilery peeks at what’s to come lately, and it’s not about to let up now, especially since we haven’t gotten a full-length trailer yet. Though this post doesn’t give us that just yet, we do have these photos to get us better acquainted with some of the major players that are sure to make an impact in Westeros when the show graces the airwaves again.

In the massive gallery below, you can check out a number of new images from season three featuring many familiar faces, but a ton of new ones as well such as Ciaran Hinds as Mance Ryder, the King Beyond The Wall, Dianna Rigg as the grandmother of Margaery and Loras Tyrell, Lady Oleanna, and the red priest Thoros of Myr played by Paul Kaye:

One face that I completely forgot would be making an appearance this season was Thomas Brodie-Sangster from ‘Love, Actually’. He was among the massive casting announcement from SDCC last year, so it’s understandable that a new addition to the cast could go unnoticed until you see them on set and in costume. Brodie-Sangster plays Jojen Reed, a new friend of Bran Stark.

What do you think about these new pictures? Sure, not much has changed since last season since season three picks up right after season two, but it’s still exciting to see our favorite characters again, right? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

‘Game of Thrones’ returns to HBO on Sunday, March 31, 2013.
