Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley)
Ned's widow delays her grieving to console son Robb, the self-proclaimed King in the North, after her husband is beheaded. She then serves as his envoy to other armies, seeking to unify against the ruling Lannisters.Her personal mission is to rescue her two daughters, whom she believes are in the hands of the rival Lannisters, and then have her vengeance.
“She has children to guide and look after, so she cannot be seen to break down and indulge in her own grief. She has to be strong for her family. But at the end of Season 1, when she says, ‘We will have revenge,’ she means it,” Fairley says.
