Game of Thrones

Jerome as Bronn“Game of Thrones” is an original HBO Series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling novels. In a world where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime, the Westeros crown comes with a price. Betrayal, lust, intrigue and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdom, from the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and the ancient Wall that protects the realm from the darkness beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and noble men vie for power in the bloody struggle for the Iron Throne.

Bronn, played by Jerome,  has a lean, wolfish appearance, a black sense of humor, and a pragmatic, thoroughly amoral philosophy.  His character is continually developing from a low-born sellsword of great skill, who comes to prominence when he champions for Tyrion Lannister in his trial by combat in the Eyrie. Bronn subsequently enters Tyrion’s service as his bodyguard and enforcer.

While Bronn begins as a common and obscure mercenary, over the course of the narrative his fortunes continue to gradually rise. Bronn is briefly appointed Commander of the City Watch in King’s Landing when Tyrion is acting Hand. He is then rewarded with a knighthood for the vital role he performed during the Battle of the Blackwater, taking on the formal name “Ser Bronn of the Blackwater”. His status in Westerosi society rises even further when he enters into an arranged marriage to Lollys Stokeworth, as part of a political bribe by Queen Cersei. This betrothal elevates Bronn to the ranks of the upper nobility.
