Bronn is a major character in the second, third, fourth and fifth seasons. He initially appeared as a recurring character in the first season and debuted in “Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things.” He is played by starring cast member Jerome Flynn. He is a skilled and dangerous sellsword 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 in Season 2. 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.
