The seventh and penultimate season of Game of Thrones is adding a fresh face to its already sprawling cast.
Oscar-winning veteran actor Jim Broadbent (Harry Potter, Bridget Jones’s Diary) has signed on for a role in the HBO series upcoming season, E! News has confirmed, though who he will be playing is anyone’s guess.
All we do know is that the role will be “significant,” as first reported by EW.
In seasons past, the speculation game was a bit easy for fanatics of the George R.R. Martin book series upon which the series is based.
Just line up the actor with a role yet to jump from page to screen that matches their description and…voila…you’ve figured it out. But now that the series has surpassed its source material, with even the studious of readers watching blind, Broadbent could quite literally appear as anyone.
