Television Exclusive – Gorgeous New Character Posters Released for “Game of Thrones”

The official Game of Thrones Facebook  recently shared a set of gorgeous new character posters for the upcoming fourth season of the show.

Martin created for the series).

Some of the major characters that are featured include, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), and Jon Snow (Kit Harington).  Take a look at all of these stunning posters below:
