Walt Disney has announced that Richard Madden, one of the stars of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, has been cast in their upcoming live-action take on the Cinderella fairy tale.
Madden, who plays the son of Eddard Stark and the boy who would become King in the North on the show, Robb Stark, is fittingly set to play the prince in this new Cinderella tale. We recently just found out that Downton Abbey star Lily James had been cast as the mistreated Disney princess.
Madden also joins Cate Blanchett (The Lord of the Rings, on the film, who will be playing the evil stepmother. Kenneth Branagh is directing the movie.
