Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones is an epic drama set in the world of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honour and ill-repute live in a land whose summers and winters can last years.
In King’s Landing, the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey, counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and his uncle Tyrion, who has been appointed Hand of the King. But the Lannister hold on the Throne is under assault on many fronts. Robb Stark, son of Ned Stark, the slain Lord of Winterfell, seeks autonomy in the North and has taken Cersei’s brother Jaime prisoner in battle. Daenerys Targaryen looks to shore up her depleted power in the East with her three newborn dragons. Stannis Baratheon, brother of the late King Robert, rejects Joffrey’s legitimacy and aligns with a powerful priestess to raise a naval attack. And Renly, Stannis’ charismatic brother, has maintained his own claim since fleeing King’s Landing.
In the meantime, a new leader is rising among the wildlings North of the Wall, adding fresh perils for Jon Snow and the order of the Night’s Watch. With tensions and treaties, animosity and alliances, the second season of Game of Thrones will be a thrilling journey through an unforgettable landscape.
Game of Thrones S2 airs on Fridays at 21:30.

With his supporting role in Tom DeCillo's Living in Oblivion, actor Peter Dinklage delivered an open rant to an entire generation of would-be filmmakers, refusing to be used as a gag or a prop - while honouring his craft with an unforgettable fierceness and dignity. Dinklage got his shot at redefining the concept of a leading man with his starring role in the Sundance Audience Award winner The Station Agent, which drew standing ovations at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival.
After the Dramatic Audience Award, Peter went on to receive the SAG Award Nominee for Best Actor 2004, the Independent Spirit Award Nominee for Best Actor 2004 and was also named one of the top five Breakout Stars of the year by Entertainment Weekly and prominently featured in People's Sexiest Man Alive issue. He has been extremely busy ever since.
Feature credits include appearing opposite Will Ferrell in Jon Favreau's Elf; Michel Gondry's Human Nature; Penelope co-starring Reese Witherspoon and Christina Ricci; the co-lead in the Chronicles of Narnia franchise; St. John of Las Vegas with Steve Buscemi and Sarah Silverman; and Pete Smalls Is Dead with Buscemi and Tim Roth (Dinklage is also a producer on that). He was recently seen in the comedy Death at a Funeral opposite Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence.
Getting back to his theatre roots, Peter starred in a Lincoln Center production on the life of painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec for director Martha Clark; the title role in the Public Theatre's critically acclaimed Richard III; Charlie Kaufman's Theatre of the New Ear co-starring Meryl Streep and Hope Davis; and Knickerbocker at Williamstown.

A graduate of the prestigious National Theater School in Denmark, international actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s star is on the rise in Hollywood.
After leaving his handprint on the European Film and Television industry, Coster-Waldau quickly made his transition to American cinema. In 2001, he began his US career with a starring role in Ridley Scott’s critically acclaimed and multi Academy Award-winning Black Hawk Down. He later landed a lead role in Michael Apted’s “Enigma” co-starring Kate Winslett, Dougray Scott and Saffron Burrows.
Coster-Waldau’s charm and incredible range as an actor prompted many of his previous directors to cast him once again. Ridley Scott brought him back for his 2005 epic film “Kingdom of Heaven” starring Orlando Bloom, Liam Neeson and Eva Green. Additionally, Richard Loncraine, who first cast Coster-Waldau in his 2004 film “Wimbledon” alongside Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst, brought him back for “Firewall,” a suspense-filled thriller starring Harrison Ford.
Last year, Coster-Waldau made his U.S. television debut in the FOX drama “New Amsterdam,” playing immortal detective “John Amsterdam.” Currently he is shooting “Blekingegade,” a Danish TV mini-series based on Denmark’s highest-profile criminal gang.
His other credits include leading roles in the films “Night Watch,” “Wildshot” (which he also co-wrote), “Misery Harbours,” “Foreign Fields,” “24 Hours in the Life of a Woman,” “Rembrandt” and “Manden Bag Dren.”
Coster-Waldau resides in Denmark.
