This just in: The Game of Thrones prequel has found its leading lady.

Naomi Watts is the first person to join GoT’s highly anticipated spin-off, according to Deadline. Although HBO hasn’t released any further details about the cast, director or title, the project is expected to begin production in early 2019.

The prequel will explore the Seven Kingdoms long before the War of the Five Kings. It will be written by Jane Goldman (X-Men: First Class) and author George R.R. Martin.

Welcome to Westeros, Naomi.
