  • Max Von Sydow cast as Three Eyed Raven in new Game of Thrones Season

Max Von Sydow was announced as the latest addition to the Game of Thrones cast for the upcoming sixth season of the show.

The Game of Thrones cast is always in need for new additions. Since it kills off so many characters, the addition of new cast members is a totally understandable thing.

It has also set a great par for casting a quality cast. All the actors have delivered world-class performances. Whether their characters have been short or long.

The latest actor to join in on the cast is the acclaimed Swedish veteran actor. Silver-screen legend Max von Sydow, according to EW. Von Sydow has a long career to vouch for his outstanding acting. From his role in the exorcist to Minority Report. He will be appearing in the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.

The plus point for this casting call is the knowledge of the character he is set to play. He is going to be playing the Three Eyed Raven. He is not an actual bird like Pryce’s character the High Sparrow.

The role was originally played by Struan Rodger at the end of season four. He is the tutor to Bran Stark and his companions. The crew had set on a journey at the end of season four. Their story was put on hold for the length of season five.

They will be returning in season five. Bran would be tutored by the Three-Eyed Raven and learn how to improve his visions as well as his warging abilities. For non-fans, waging is the ability to enter the mind of an animal and control their actions.

The casting comes on the heels of another famed European thespian joining the fantasy hit. McShane’s casting has remained a secret till now. He will be reprising an unknown role. Both actors are not going to enjoy a lot of screen time. They are going to be important in their own respect.

Von Sydow is another one of the Bond movies villains to be cast in the series. The creators are promising the fans three more seasons of the show. The news could be hailed as a good sign of-course.
