Everyone loves a franchise crossover, especially when it’s for a good cause, and this one looks to be really exciting.
Some of the Game of Thrones alums are reuniting to play a virtual game of Dungeons and Dragons for Red Nose Day 2020.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne), Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy), Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton), Kristian Nairn (Hodor) and Natalia Tena (Osha) are playing, with Kate Welch, game designer for D&D at Wizards of the Coast serving as Dungeon Master.
“The games I run tend to be ridiculous and goofy, which are two words I wouldn’t apply to Game of Thrones, necessarily,” Welsh told EW. “Super excited to see how these actors in particular let loose with the antics you typically find at a D&D table.”
D&D Roll with Advantage runs from June 18-20, and it’s not just the Game of Thrones cast who will be taking part in the charity event to help people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Angel’s Amy Acker, True Blood star Janina Gavankar, Scream’s Matthew Lillard and Veep’s Sam Richardson are all going head-to-head, but there are plenty of other games to choose from too.

The reunion comes a year after the final episode of Game of Thrones aired in what was a hugely divisive final season. Divisive it might have been, but it ‘The Iron Throne’ finale was the show’s most-watched episode ever across all eight seasons.
