Much to the delight of fans, Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie (better known to viewers as Brienne of Tarth) has already been cast in Star Wars Episode VII, but now another familiar face from the hit HBO series has been added to the J.J. Abrams helmed follow-up to Return of the Jedi.
Miltos Yerolemou played swordsman Syrio Forel, and he trained the young Arya Stark to effectively wield a blade in King’s Landing. He’s an accomplished swordsman away from Westeros as well, so him being added to a movie which will see characters swinging around lightsabers is very exciting news indeed!
Though his roe in Star Wars Episode VII is described as not being a major one, you have to imagine that Abrams won’t waste the opportunity to put his incredible skills to good use in the highly anticipated movie.
There have been a lot of »

Back in June, Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie was cast in Star Wars: Episode VII, and now we’re hearing that she won’t be the only one from Westeros to travel to a galaxy far, far away. According to BBC News, Miltos Yerolemou has landed a role in the hotly anticipated blockbuster as well.
Yerolemou is known for playing expert swordsman Syrio Forel on the first season of Game of Thrones, who trains young Arya Stark. While one could easily see him taking those skills to the next level by wielding a lightsaber, BBC News cautions that he’s landed a small role in the film. That’s all we know about it, however, so fan speculation is bound to run wild with this one.
The actor joins an expanding and mysterious cast of newcomers to the Star Wars franchise, including Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years »

There's one Westeros resident already in the cast, in the shape of Gwendoline Christie, but J.J. Abrams and his Star Wars: Episode VII casting team have not finished recruiting Game Of Thrones actors. Miltos Yerolemou has, according to the BBC, scored a small role in the new film.Though production on the latest Star Wars has been underway for months (pausing recently to reconfigure schedules after Harrison Ford’s leg was broken on set), Abrams and co. are apparently still bringing actors aboard to supplement the cast, which already includes Ford, Christie, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Anthony Daniels, Max Von Sydow, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong'o, Oscar Isaac, Christina Chong, Crystal Clarke and Pip Anderson.Details on Yerolemou’s role have yet to be revealed, to almost no-one’s surprise. But while you might remember him best as Syrio Forel, who taught Maisie Williams »
According to the BBC, former Game of Thrones star Miltos Yerolemou, who portrayed the character of swordsman Syrio Forel in the first season of HBO’s epic fantasy series, has signed on to the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII in an unspecified role. While no character details have been revealed, speculation would suggest that Yerolemou could find himself weilding a lightsaber, given that he’s appeared in a number of roles which involved sword fighting. Yerolemou is the second member of Game of Thrones to join the cast of Episode VII, with Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) also set to feature in the eagerly-anticipated sequel from director J.J. Abrams.

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, »

Movie News - Filming for 'Star Wars Episode VII' has resumed following Harrison Ford's recovery from injury. The Hollywood icon suffered an accident on set earlier this month, which meant he had to undergo surgery on his leg and led to a postponement of filming. However, the 72-year-old actor has made a recovery and filming has restarted at Pinewood Studios in the UK, according to The Hollywood Reporter. What's more, it's been revealed that the break in filming has not caused a delay in the release of the much-hyped film, which is set to open in the UK on December 18, 2015. The film will feature the stars of the original trilogy, including Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, as well as Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew. The cast has been supplemented by the additions of Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, John Boyega, Max von Sydow and Daisy Ridley. »
Not even a broken leg can keep Han Solo down. Production on Star Wars: Episode VII has resumed this week at London's Pinewood Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter, following Harrison Ford's on-set injury (allegedly involving Han Solo's Millennium Falcon) and subsequent surgery, which put the sequel on a two-month filming hiatus.
Ford, who was healed enough to take the Als Ice Bucket Challenge last week, will reprise his role in the film, along with original cast members Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. »
According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming on Star Wars Episode VII restarted earlier this week at Pinewood Studios in the UK. Harrison Ford broke his leg on the set of the movie back in June, and with Han Solo set to play a key role in the J.J. Abrams helmed movie, there was a lot of concern that the release date would have to be changed to accomodate his recovery. In case you somehow missed the news, Ford broke his leg while shooting a scene on the Millennium Falcon. The 71-year-old actor would have to undergo surgery, but he's fine now and Star Wars Episode VII is still expected to hit on December 18th, 2015. The movie also stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and newcomers to the franchise, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o and Max von Sydow. »
After a brief hiatus, Star Wars: Episode VII has resumed production following Harrison Ford's well-publicized injury on set. He joins the rest of the cast in London, where filming will continue at Pinewood Studios.
Filming on the highly anticipated sequel actually began earlier this week under the direction of J.J. Abrams. Things had been quiet at Pinewood for the past couple of weeks after Harrison Ford broke his leg. The actor reportedly had a run-in with the Millennium Falcon ramp, which slammed shut on his ankle. That injury occurred in June.
It is not known who has joined Harrison Ford back on set this week, but we can guess that Peter Mayhew, who plays Han Solo's companion, is back alongside the actor. The cast includes old favorites such as Carrie Fisher, »
The production shut down for two weeks earlier this month to accommodate Ford, who underwent successful leg surgery after suffering an accident on the film set.
The break has not delayed the release date for Star Wars Episode VII, which is due to open on December 18, 2015 in the Us and the UK.
The seventh feature film will be followed by an undisclosed spinoff »
Good news for Star Wars fans – after shutting down production for several weeks in the wake of Harrison Ford’s leg injury on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, it has now been announced the filming on the eagerly-anticipated first chapter of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy has now resumed in the U.K.
Ford suffered a broken leg back in May during an accident on the Millennium Falcon set, forcing director J.J. Abrams to rejig the schedule for Episode VII, before taking a break throughout August. However, with Ford now seemingly fully recovered from his injury, it looks like the film is back on track to meet its December 2015 release date, much to the relief of fans.
Star Wars: Episode VII sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by »

Als Ice Bucket Challenge is the meme that can't be stopped. But unlike planking, or owling, or whatever came after owling, the Ibc is doing a lot of good. So far this year the Als Association has raised nearly $80 million. The uptick has been so sharp that think pieces are being written about if blending narcissism with charity has forever changed the fundraising landscape (for the better). So behold the power of this fully operational social media challenge. From Han Solo to Luke Skywalker to Chewbacca and beyond, the denizens of a galaxy far, far away are helping raise awareness for Als. The elusive Daisy Ridley performed her Ibc in the safety of the shower. Harrison Ford kept it short and sweet. Mark Hamill adorkably tried to game the system and utterly failed. Peter Mayhew brought along his wife for moral support. Awwww. Oscar Isacc allegedly had Adam Driver and »

Dennis Lehane, who wrote the novel Shutter Island is based on, will write the pilot script, with Martin Scorsese set to direct the first episode. The series is tentatively titled Ashecliffe, the name of the isolated mental hospital where the book and film are set, with the story to take place before the events of the movie. The show will focus on the hospital's past, and the sinister secrets of the facility's founders in the early 20th Century, who developed methods of treatment for the mentally ill.
The series was initially thought up by Paramount TV executive Amy Powell. She brought the idea to Martin Scorsese and Dennis Lehane, who loved the idea of expanding the story of his novel. Tom Bernardo is working as a co-writer with Dennis Lehane on the pilot. »
"Minority Report" may be coming to the small-screen. Steven Spielberg's blockbuster sci-fi film starring Tom Cruise is being developed as a TV series by the director's Amblin Television, according to Deadline, with "Godzilla" screenwriter Max Borenstein attached to pen the script. The project, which is still in the "very early stages," will take off from the film's near-future vision of a world in which a special police unit - aided by telepaths known as "precogs" - is able to arrest murderers before they commit their crimes. The premise is based on the short story of the same name by Philip K. Dick. No network is yet attached to the project. Released in the summer of 2002, "Minority Report" was met with critical acclaim and went on to gross over $350 million worldwide. It also starred Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton and Max von Sydow. Do you think a "Minority Report" TV series is a good idea? »

Minority Report starred Tom Cruise as Detective John Anderton, who runs the "Pre-Crime" unit in Washington D.C. that uses three psychics known as "precogs" to accurately predict crimes before they will happen, with arrests being made before the crime actually happens. The plot thickens when John is forced to go on the run after the precogs reveal he is about to commit murder.
The weekly series is said to focus on the elite Pre-Crime unit, with Steven Spielberg said to be eyeing a major star for the lead role, similar to how the producer lured Oscar winner Halle Berry to star in his CBS sci-fi series Extant.
20th Century Fox distributed Minority Report in 2002, which earned $358 million worldwide, but it's unclear whether or not the studio or the Fox »
It is a fascinating moment to be a "Star Wars" fan. Right now, there is arguably more energy being expended on all things "Star Wars" than ever before. I remember the feeling in the early days of development on what became "Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace," when there were just rumbles of a possible new film or even *Gasp!* a new trilogy of films. Hell, I remember when the Special Editions were just a rumor. I remember when a friend of mine called and said, "They're not a rumor. I have something to show you." He came by my house with a videotape, and on that videotape was the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: A New Hope - The Special Edition," the very first new "Star Wars" footage in what had been fourteen years at that point. It was mind-blowing. It made me reassess »

The site, Indie Revolver, has been very busy with Star Wars VII spoilers. They've supplied the internet with images of the new Stormtroopers as well concept art of Han Solo's new wardrobe. And now, they've posted concept art featuring our first look at the main villain. Oh yeah, and he's holding Darth Vader's helmet. What?! Yup. They also have a description of the Sith Inquisitor. Besides having a robotic hand as previously mentioned by Badass Digest, they state: "He’s tall and thin and terrifyingly creepy, with glowing red eyes to match his red lightsaber. He’s got some robotic upgrades, like Vader – but no mask. The cybernetic bits weave in and out of him. He’s got a human upper lip, a steel jaw." - Indie Revolver Star Wars: Episode VII - Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, David Oyelowow, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, »
It’s been a busy day for Star Wars fans, what with our possible first look at the redesigned Imperial Stormtroopers and some alleged Han Solo concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII, and now we’ve got a tonne of alleged plot details for the eagerly-anticipated first instalment of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy. However, it should be noted that these come by way of rumour specialists Latino-Review and Badass Digest, so there’s also a good chance the post is pretty much spoiler free…
So, we’ve all heard the reports that Episode VII will open with Luke Skywalker’s severed hand floating through space before coming into the possession of Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, who then set off on an adventure to find Luke with the help of Han Solo and Chewbacca.
