The second season of Game of Thrones isn’t even over yet and already we’ve got our first season 3 casting announcement! Kerry Ingram has been cast as Stannis’ daughter Shireen.

Fans were beginning to wonder if Stannis Baratheon’s daughter Shireen had been cut from the show after he and Melisandre discussed having children a few episodes back. But a recent season 3 character list confirmed that Shireen will indeed be appearing, and now we know who’s going to be playing her!

12-year-old Olivier award-winner Kerry Ingram, who has appeared on stage as the title character in Matilda, will join the huge Thrones cast next season. She confirmed the news herself on her Twitter account, writing:

Can’t wait to start on game of thrones :0) xx

It has since been confirmed that she will play Stannis’ daughter.

In the novels, Shireen is described as a not very pretty nine-year-old girl, with her father’s square jaw and her mother’s large Florent ears. She also suffered from greyscale, which has left half her face covered in grey and black dead skin.

She is often accompanied by the fool Patchface, and enjoys playing with the bastard boy Edric Storm. Shireen’s mother, Queen Selyse (formerly of House Florent), will also appear.

Kerry will also appear in the upcoming movie adaptation of Les Misérables.

    Not having read the books, is this a major character? Are we talking Jeor Mormont material(who appeared in only 3 of the season 2 ep) or Bronn material(who appeared in 8 of the season 2 eps)? I assume she is a minor character, and not a major one, like Theon or Bran are.

      She’s definitively a minor character, but she’s important to the dynamic of Stannis and those around him.

    I’m happy she’s been casted. I don’t even think they’ve mentioned that Stannis has a daughter yet.

    That’s Sophia Kiely on the photo not Kerry. :)))
