More Game Of Thrones Season Two Casting

And a name change for the character involved

Hang on, poeple who’ve read the books might be thinking, who’s Yara Greyjoy?

In fact, she’s the character from the Ice And Fire books known as Asha Greyjoy, the elder sister of the Stark family’s wayward ward Theon Greyjoy. A bit of a firebrand, Yara has her own ship, her own crew and a love of axes.

Quite why the producers have changed the name is unclear, but the show has a precedent; Lord Robert at the Eyrie became Robin to avoid confusion with King Robert Baratheon.
