Rumors continue to swirl surrounding what new characters will be added to the roster for Game of Thrones Season 5. The show already has an enormous cast, but the fourth and fifth books of A Song of Ice and Fire, which will provide the source material for Season 5, feature literally dozens of new additions sharing the spotlight.
The show of course won’t be able to include them all, but a new report suggests three who are rumored make their debut next season.

Varamyr Sixskins. Varamyr is a Wildling warg who features in the prologue of A Storm of Swords. He has six animals which he routinely wargs into, hence the name, but we’re curious as to how the show will use him. The show has already passed where Varamyr appeared in the books, so his inclusion will likely take the place of another character. Our guess is that he may take the role of Rattleshirt at the Wall next season.
Imogen. A young blonde girl who does not appear in the books, Winter Is Coming speculates this is actually code for “young Cersei”. It looks as if the show will be featuring a flashback to Cersei’s meeting with fortune-teller Maggy the Frog in Season 5.
Brunette girl. Another young girl, likely appearing alongside “Imogen.” She could be Malera, Cersei’s childhood friend from the books with whom she encounters Maggy.
