Liam Cunningham has signed on as a series regular, playing Davos Seaworth, an infamous smuggler turned knight for Stannis Baratheon.

Dillane is best known for playing Thomas Jefferson in the HBO mini-series “John Adams,” and will play Stannis, younger brother of the late king Robert who has ambitions to be the next king. Houten will play Melisandre, a powerful woman who is an adviser to Stannis Baratheon.
