Game Of Thrones Actors Reunite To Play At D&D Live 2020

We're going to be getting a Game Of Thrones reunion of sorts this month as several cast members will be on D&D Live 2020. According to Wizards of the Coast, they will be holding a special stream in the middle of the event called D&D's Cast of Thrones, which will feature Daniel Portman (Podrick Payne), Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy), Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton), Kristian Nairn (Hodor) and Natalia Tena (Osha). All of whom will be DM'd by Acquisitions Incorporated/WotC's Kate Welch. The story for the game is that "a group of heroes that meet an unusual creature that sets them on a strange task. Seems simple enough–but in a realm legendary for its danger, all is not what it seems." This is one of the first big reunions to happen involving several members of the cast since the show ended last year. You can check out a trailer for the new addition below, as this will take place on June 20th at 12pm PT. The full stream will run from June 18th-20th on YouTube and Twitch, with the event supporting Red Nose Day.
