Oscar-nominated actress Miranda Richardson has become the latest star to join the highly-anticipated "Game Of Thrones" prequel pilot in the works at HBO.

Nominated for an Oscar for her work in "Damage" and "Tom & Viv", Richardson will join a cast of previously announced series regulars on the upcoming show, including: Naomi Watts, Josh Whitehouse, Naomi Ackie, Denise Gough, Jamie Campbell Bower, Sheila Atim, Ivanno Jeremiah, Georgie Henley, Alex Sharp and Toby Regbo.

The brainchild of writer Jane Goldman and author/GOT co-executive producer George R.R. Martin; the as-yet-untitled prequel -- set thousands of years before the events of "Game of Thrones" -- will unravel the horrifying secrets of Westeros' history, from the true origin of the white walkers, to the mysteries of the East and the secrets of the Starks.
