UPDATE: You know nothing about Game of Thrones‘ Comic-Con plans!

There’s been a programming change to HBO’s panel. Lena Headey is not going to be able to make the show’s Friday event at 2:45 p.m. due to a schedule conflict. Instead, the lovely Rose Leslie (Ygritte) will take the stage (along with Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Michelle Fairley and Richard Madden), plus she’ll be on hand for autograph signing at the booth. will blog live from the panel.

Meanwhile, the Thrones third season casting rumors continue to swirl, but HBO hasn’t confirmed any names yet. Two of interest: Tara Fitzgerald is rumored to be cast as Selyse Florent (Stannis Baratheon’s wife) and Mackenzie Crook (The Office UK) is being buzzed about as a possible Vargo “The Goat” Hoat.

UPDATE: Harington is out too, says HBO, since he’s recovering from a broken ankle (the injury is not expected to impact production, the network says). The way Thrones actors are dropping, are we sure George R.R. Martin isn’t scripting this event instead of just moderating it?

And for those who missed this viral gem last week:
