In the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime, the Great Houses (Stark, Baratheon, Targaryen, Lannister, Greyjoy, Arryn, Martell, Tully and Tyrell) fight among themselves for a right to rule the Iron Throne. Beyond the Wall and across the Narrow Sea bigger threats are rising until its a right moment to take a revenge. Based on R.R. Martin's novels.
(Gypsy, The Glass Castle) to star in the upcoming ensemble Game of Thrones prequel pilot from Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, Kingsman) and Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, the untitled project is set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones. The project Martin refers to as The Long Night chronicles the world's descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros' history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it's not the story we think we know.
Watts will play a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret. Her character name has not been revealed.
