After much speculation, the role Sherlock co-creator and co-star Mark Gatiss will be taking on for Game of Thrones is a mystery no more.
The actor’s casting on the HBO show was announced in July byEntertainment Weekly, but without a character name attached. After months of leaving fans wondering what part he’ll have in season 4, the character has been revealed. According to his CV, Gatiss will be playing the role of Tycho Nestoris.
Nestoris is a representative of the Iron Bank of Braavos, legendary throughout the world of Game of Thrones for always getting back the money they lend. Those who fail to repay them will find the Iron Bank funding their enemies, Tyrion warns in season 3, and the Crown is in heavy debt to the Iron Bank.YOHN ROYCE CAST
Vansittart will be playing the head of House Royce, bannermen of House Arryn and loyal to Lady Lysa. The character is nicknamed “Bronze Yohn” in the books because of his bronze, rune-inscribed armor. Yohn is the father of Ser Waymar Royce, the young Night’s Watchman who was killed by a White Walker in the first fifteen minutes of Game of Thrones‘ premiere episode.
A familiar face on British television, the actor has guested on Doctor Who, Mr. Bean, Midsomer Murders, Any Human Heart and most recently, Foyle’s War. He portrayed Mr. Hurst in the 1995 BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and appeared as Charles, Lord Ashfordly over several seasons on the police drama Heartbeat. Vansittart’s film work includesThe Iron Lady, Austenland, Braveheart, The Remains of the Day, Cutthroat Island, and Four Weddings and a Funeral.Sigur Rós TO APPEAR ON GOT
In another exclusive by Entertainment Weekly’s James Hibberd it has been revealed that the indie band tradition continues this season as well. The producers have booked the Icelandic band Sigur Rós! They are shooting their appearance in Croatia at the moment.
Based on previous experience, it is safe to speculate that they might record a song for the show as well. Previously The National and The Hold Steady performed songs from the ASoIaF universe on the show (and featured on the original soundracks releases), while members of Coldplay and Snow Patrol appeared on screen as well.1, 2, 3
