Is everyone finally back from their Thanksgiving breaks? Great! Time for a quick
A couple new names have surfaced recently to add to the roster, and one may provide a hint as to what a major character is up to early in season 7.
Brendan Morrissey. The Irish actor’s agency CV has revealed that he has a part in the new season of
According to it, he’ll be playing the Freys’ Lord in a Jeremy Podeswa-directed episode.
At the end of season 6, House Frey’s reigning lord Walder was killed by Arya Stark, exacting long-overdue retribution for the Red Wedding. That was when we last saw Arya, so considering where we left her, and what we know of Podeswa’s episodes this year, that means it’s a safe guess (though not confirmed) we’ll see this character in the season premiere. Will Arya be content with only killing old Walder, Black Walder and Lothar? Since all of House Frey participated in the the Wedding massacre, that seems unlikely. Arya may have more work to do at the Twins.
Our second Irish casting note of the week is Rory Dignam. The actor’s agency’s news page noted on November 16th that he had shot “a nice little supporting role” on the show. The agency further mentions that the actor had just returned from shooting in Spain, at that time. In early-to-mid November,
The specific role name is not given, unfortunately. And while some of the various roles of the new season have trickled down to us, many haven’t and so we don’t know yet what part he’ll be playing. So speculate away!

I reckon Rory has a kind of a Citadel type look about him!
Wooohooo! Is this a spoiler-free discussion? If it is, feel free to delete my comment please.
So Arya poisoning all the Frey sons is becoming more probable now, I guess?
What was your favorite Brendan Morrissey moment? Oh, too soon? Seriously though, if he’s playing a Frey chances are it won’t be for long. No matter the manner, House Frey has no more “life” left in the story.
I’d agree with speculation that the actor filming in might involve Oldtown.
Yes, this lines up perfectly with the leaks (and also, incidentally, seems to indicate that a package of supposed leaks relayed by another Redditor as IMs from the leaker was legitimate). I think most of us assumed we’d seen the last of the Freys after Season 6’s finale, so that’s another thing that would be implausible to guess.
I love your avatar picture – it’s so cute! 🙂
That Rory guy kind of looks like a Tyrell, but don’t know.
You should spoiler tag that thing, mate… I have read the leaks but a lot of people don’t.
Thank you, I love your name 😀
Since all of House Frey participated in the the Wedding massacre
Can someone refresh my memory please on when was this established on the show?
I have the book version on my mind and not all Freys participated or wanted to be part of the red wedding.
I think it’s quite clear now that the guy was right about everything. I would now be surprised if something gets disproven lol. If Arya takes care of all the Freys in the premiere itself, it’s surprising that it takes her 4 episodes to reach Winterfell.
We watched hundreds of people help massacre the Starks and their allies. Obviously that was not just Lord Walder and two other guys. (and we never saw any House Stark-friendly Freys on the show like in the books.)
It seems Arya will kill emaining Freys before LF. Which other redditor? DcoMantisTobogan?
Walder called both Lothar and Black Walder his “damn moron sons” even though Black Walder is a great-grandson. The show hasn’t mentioned many of Walder’s ‘spawn’ even though there are. He did mention that he has a lot though.
If he’s to be the new Lord I’d guess it’s Edwyn Frey. He has supposedly become the successor in the books. He’s eldest grandson of Walder’s eldest son, Stevron.
living book sons: Emmon, Hosteen (“Ser Stupid”), Danwell, Raymund (Catelyn’s book killer), Jammos, Whalen, Perwyn, Maester Willamen, Olyvar, Wendel, Colmar, Waltyr, Elmar. Then there are a bunch of grandsons and great-grandsons as well…
I had this idea that Arya will take out (or has already taken out) more of the Freys than we saw in 610, since I saw the In Production Trailer: there was that shot of 4 pairs of eye-stones being painted on some map. The more I looked the more I got convinced that the map was pointing to the Twins.
The only interesting thing that a new Freys’ Lord looks too old compared to the late Walder’s sons, but I guess he could be one of the older sons, so no problem.
I just hope that Arya won’t kill Roslyn and her baby by accident. In general, I am very interested how the things will work for Roslyn and other Frey daughters. It might not be that nice.
I think most of us assumed we’d seen the last of the Freys after Season 6’s finale, so that’s another thing that would be implausible to guess.
I’m going to make a guess that there will be fighting between the Freys and Edmure Tully over who controls the Twins, if not the House of Frey itself. I’m also guessing that it won’t turn out well for any of them.
Now i want one of the Freys this season to be Waldron Frey (in the books Elmar) ,Arya’s former betrothed!
He would make a good novice but I think they won’t do the Citadel plot.
