One of cinema’s most enduring super-studs, Max von Sydow, is headed to Westeros.
Indeed, the actor will be a big part of Season 6 of HBO’s Game of Thrones next year now that he’s been tapped to take over the role of the Three-Eyed Raven. Which means that von Sydow is gonna share a whole bunch of scenes with returning cast member Isaac Hempstead Wright, a.k.a. Bran Stark.
Not entirely sure why but I have hearted von Sydow since I saw him in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly eight years ago. He was outstanding in that.
Plus, that name!
Up next for von Sydow, though, is a part in...this December’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
