Richard E. Grant joins Game Of Thrones

Game Of Thrones has added yet another well-loved British actor to its ranks, with Variety reporting that Richard E. Grant is the latest big name to join the show. The identity of Grant’s character has yet to be disclosed, but he will make his bow in the upcoming sixth season.

Grant joins fellow newcomers Max von Sydow and Ian McShane for the show’s latest run, while Borgen star Pilou Asbaek has also been cast as the long-lost Euron Greyjoy. Will Grant be another Greyjoy affiliate, as the narrative focus returns to the Iron Islands? Only time will tell.

Filming is currently underway on the new series, with the show set to return to our screens in springtime next year. Never mind what the Starks say - winter can’t come soon enough!
