Jim Broadbent is coming to Game of Thrones season 7, and though we don’t yet know who he’ll be playing, we’re already excited.
As always, details have not yet been released. Game of Thrones does love to keep us in the dark about things, but reports state that his role is going to be “significant.”
We could speculate, of course, but we’re bound to be very far off the mark, especially since the show has already surpassed the published material, and George R.R Martin could introduce twenty new characters in the last two books. Or fifty.
Either way, we’re happy to have Broadbent on Game of Thrones. We’re just a little concerned about his eventual fate, because, as we all know, characters don’t tend to last long on this show – and Broadbent has a kind face. And yeah, nice people don’t make it in Westeros.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO in 2017.
