Game of Thrones, Beautiful Creatures Actors Join Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

She Turned Me Into a Newt!

A day may come when I am not filled with a sense of glee at anything related to the Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell miniseries. But it is not this day!

We already knew Eddie Marsan and Bertie Carvel are playing Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, respectively, in the BBC’s adaptation of Susana Clarke‘s magic-meets-history fantasy novel Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. Now, thanks to a press release from Screen Yorkshire, we know some of the other actors. And they are:

Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures, Ginger & Rosa): Lady Pole
Enzo Cilenti (Rome, In the Loop): Childermass
Charlotte Riley (2009’s Wuthering Heights, World Without End): Arabella Strange
Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones): Vinculus

Yes, that’s right. Thoros of Myr is playing Vinculus. It’s ever-so-slightly perfect.

The press release also lists Samuel West (Mr. Selfridge) and Marc Warren (Wanted, The Good Wife, that episode of Doctor Who we don’t like to talk about), though it doesn’t say who they’ll play. My guess is that Warren will be the Man With the Thistle-Down Hair (*tilts head* I see it), and West… John Segundus, maybe?

I’ll just be sitting over here patiently until it’s announced who Stephen Black’s actor is.
