**Warning: CONTAINS SPOILERS (from last year’s Series 5)**
Ever since the the fifth series’ typically brutal and shocking ending last year, the world has been waiting, poised in anticipation, for the return of Game Of Thrones. Based on George R.R. Martin’s bestselling series of books and arguably the most beloved and talked about television show on the planet right now, GOT finally returns this week on Sunday night for its hotly anticipated sixth series.
And returning again this year will be TOM WLASCHIHA as the mysterious, shapeshifting assassin Jaqen H’ghar, one of the Faceless Men of Braavos residing in the House of Black and White. Those of you who are fans of the show know that his storyline is intrinsically linked to that of young Arya Stark, who he has been carefully mentoring in the mysterious art of shapeshifting. Their storyline ended last year in a traditional Game Of Thrones shock twist as Jaqen punished Arya by taking her eyesight from her. But all is never what it seems with this show, and we can see from the trailer below that TOM/Jaqen will continue to train Arya and develop her skills as a (blind?) shapeshifter during the new series.
HH client SAMANTHA SPIRO will also make her first appearance in the show this year. We’re not going to tell you who she’s playing (it’ll be a fun surprise) but be sure to tune in to see her Game Of Thrones debut.
Series 6 begins in the US this Sunday 24th April, screening simultaneously in the UK at 2am on Monday 25th, on Sky Atlantic. The show will then air in the UK in its regular Monday slot at 9pm on Sky Atlantic, for ten weeks.
Check out the trailer below and tune in this week for the premiere. SO. EXCITING!
