Have you ever rewatched the first season of Game of Thrones, specifically those scenes when young Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) learns to fence from maestro Syrio Forel, and thought, “What’s that dude been up to? He should be in way more stuff.” If you have, you’re in luck, because that actor, Miltos Yerolemou, has just been cast to appear in a galaxy far, far away in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII.
Surprise, surprise, there’s no word on his role, but the BBC reports that he has indeed joined the cast in some unspecified role. According to the article, Yerolemou’s presence is not expected to be a particularly major one, but given his background and penchant for handling a sword, you better believe everyone is going to suspect that he’ll wield a lightsaber at some point. That sounds like a pretty safe bet from where we sit.
