Ann Skelly (Little Women) as Penance Adair – Amalia’s dearest friend, and one of the first women to join her cause.

‘Game of Thrones’ Emmy Love Confounds the Show’s Critics (Column)

‘Game of Thrones’ Emmy Love Confounds the Show’s Critics (Column) Today’s widespread Emmy recognition for “Game of Thrones” — now the most-Emmy-nominated series for a single season, a record that it seems odd the heavily-decorated drama didn’t already have — comes in most senses as no surprise. This series is both an awards favorite, having won the top prize at the ceremony for its last three seasons, and putting its final season forward: This is to be the last chance the Emmys have to honor the vision of David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. Which brings us to the one way in which these nominations might have come as a surprise to some.

Amy Manson (Being Human) as Maladie – Committed by her husband (and genuinely unstable), she’s been warped by a power she can’t understand, and tortured by doctors intent on finding its source.

Bruce Springsteen's Emmy Nomination Could Lead to Potential EGOT Win

Bruce Springsteen's Emmy Nomination Could Lead to Potential EGOT Win The singer earned an Emmy nomination on Tuesday. If he wins the award, he will become the next person to have received the coveted collection of an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. The singer has already won 20 Grammy Awards, one Academy Award and one Tony Award. Springsteen won a special Tony award during the 2018 ceremony. The non-competitive award is an honorary Tony, as opposed to an award that he won amongst his competitors. The singer's nomination marks his third Emmy nod.

Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) as Declan Orrun, aka The Beggar King – Charismatic and brutal, Declan runs — or has a piece of – most of the low-level criminal activity in the city. He’s perfectly happy to help Amalia and her cause — and equally happy to sell them out.  He backs winners, and the Touched are long odds.

Rochelle Neil (Episodes) as Annie Carbey, aka Bonfire – Annie is a career criminal who landed the ability to control fire and is happy to hire it out. Came up rough, stayed that way, but she’s neither impulsive nor cruel — just looking out for herself. No matter who she works with or for, Annie trusts only Annie, and the fire.

Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark) as Mary Brighton – Gentle but surprisingly resilient, Mary pursued her dream of singing on stage. A disappointing career and a broken engagement haven’t diminished her spirit. She’s going to be great. She’s going to be very surprised how.

Denis O’Hare (Big Little Lies) as Dr. Edmund Hague – A gifted American surgeon, he uses his skills in the coldest, most brutal way possible. But it’s all in the name of progress!

That would seem to be a pretty full cast, but HBO noted that there’s more casting yet to come. The series doesn’t yet have a premiere date.
