Those darn limeys don’t observe Labor Day, and it’s for the best since they’ve got some new Star Wars: Episode VII casting. According to the BBC, Miltos Yerolemou, who played swordsman Syrio Forel on Game of Thrones, has joined the upcoming Star Wars sequel in an undisclosed role, although it will probably be a minor one. Yerolemou is probably best known to American audiences for his performance on Game of Thrones, but he’s also played other roles that involve sword fighting, so don’t be surprised if you see him wielding a lightsaber.
Yeromelou is the second Game of Thrones alum to join Episode VII following the casting of Gwendoline Christie back in June, although Lucasfilm declined to comment on his casting. In case you’ve never seen Yerolemou on Game of Thrones or just want a refresher, hit the jump. Star Wars: Episode VII opens December 18, 2015, and also stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, and Max von Sydow.
