Meet Stannis Baratheon in this new teaser, titled “The Cold Winds are Rising,” for the HBO’s Game of Thrones season 2. The teaser looks exciting, to say the least, and with Stannis as a new player in the game, things will surely become even more complicated.
The trailer is narrated by Stannis Baratheon (played by Stephen Dillane), stern brother of the dead king Robert and rightful heir to the throne – a player in the game that has yet to be introduced to the show. The other crowns in the clash belong to Joffrey, Robb, Renly (Stannis’ younger brother), and Daenerys – and that’s not counting the threat(s) that lies beyond the northern wall, or the many players caught in the middle. Screen time amongst the actors is going to be divided this season, to say the least.
Season 2 is scheduled to premiere in April of 2012.
