Richard E. Grant Joins GAME OF THRONES

After recent reports that Ian McShane and Max von Sydow have signed up to join the Game of Thrones cast for its sixth season, another well-known face is heading to Westeros – Richard E. Grant.

Grant’s talent agency added the show to his official resume, hinting that he’ll be in multiple episodes (they then took it swiftly off, whistling suspiciously, when Variety picked up on it).

Most known for starring alongside Paul McGann in cult classic Withnail & I, Grant has also been seen recently as Doctor Who’s Great Intelligence and will soon show up in ITV’s Jekyll and Hyde.

Who he’ll be playing is anyone’s guess – though we’re hoping he’ll be found accidentally holidaying in Braavos or demanding the finest wines available to Westeros (he’s bona fide, he’s not from King’s Landing).

All will be revealed when Game of Thrones returns to HBO and Sky Atlantic in early 2016.
