Game of Thrones is welcoming a new addition to its family for season six.
Since so many major characters died at the end of season five of Games of Thrones, season six will no doubt be a surprise to even the most seasoned of book readers — as showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have largely used up the material published in George R.R. Martin‘s books.
On top of that — there will be a new costume designer: veteran costumer April Ferry. Game of Thrones‘ colorful characters — who all have their own sartorial themes — will be in good hands: Ferry won an Emmy for the costumes for HBO’s historical hit Rome. She’s also worked on CBS’ Extant, as well as many films, including Mask and Donnie Darko. The move comes after costume designer Michele Clapton exited the series following season five.
“There is so much left to do on the costume front, so many changes left for the characters and ground for them to cover, and we’re so grateful to have someone as brilliant as April onboard to create the costumes that tell the story’s final chapters,” the showrunners said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
Will Cersei (Lena Headey), Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) look much different? It no doubt depends on how much time is meant to have past when season six picks up. And, of course — how long they survive.
