HBO’s "Game of Thrones," which has been casting parts for its second season, has tapped a Welsh actor as Craster — a wildling, or barbarian, who is a shaky ally to the Night’s Watch, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed.

Robert Pugh has a long list of credits in film and TV, including appearances in the TV shows “Longford,” “Torchwood” and “Doctor Who.” Pugh’s Craster makes Kit Harington’s character Jon Snow, who joined the Night’s Watch in the show’s first season, very uneasy, especially his abusive relationships to his 19 wives, the story says.

The show recently cast Hannah Murray as Gilly, one of Craster’s wives who wants to escape from his household, as previously reported.

Pugh’s film credits include "The Ghost Writer" (2010) and "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" (2003).

  1. I love Tyrion Lannister. Peter Dinklage performs really amazing in game of thrones. He is small, but he presents a way he is attractive and cunning. Personally, I think there is some sad thoughts deep in Tyrion’s mind. He loves his family but his father hates him because of her mother’s death when gave birth to him. More, his father and brother plan the thing for him to prostitute and ruin love for him because the girl he first falls in love with is proved to be a prostitute. Then he speaks something to Jon Snow, the bastard son of Lord Eddard, which shows his wisdom and bitter feelings in his heart. Anyway, Peter is amazing in this show. I love him!
