5 incredible movie roles from incoming Game of Thrones star Max von Sydow

17 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Legendary actor Max von Sydow is the latest addition to the cast of Game of Thrones, taking over the role of the Three-eyed Raven in the upcoming sixth season.

Von Sydow will also be cropping up in Star Wars: The Force Awakens this December, further extending his jaw-dropping run of incredible big screen roles. We take a look back at five of von Sydow's greatest parts below.

The Exorcist (1973)

William Friedkin's horror masterpiece was one of the great films of the '70s. Right at the heart of it was the battle between Linda Blair's possessed Regan and von Sydow's exorcist Father Merrin. Von Sydow was just 44 when the film was released, getting aged up into a stately-looking man of God thanks to cutting-edge prosthetics.

Speaking to Digital Spy back in 2012, von Sydow admitted that this is the movie that people always want to talk to him about. »

Ian McShane And Max Von Sydow Join 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6

17 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“Dead is dead as dead as dead. He be dead. Yes. From everything I’ve seen, heard, read, Jon Snow is indeed dead,” HBO's Michael Lombardo recently said. So let's all move on and stop speculating about what Kit Harington's hair length might mean and move on because there is actual real and exciting news in the world of "Game Of Thrones." Ian McShane and the goddamn legendary Max Von Sydow have joined the world of Westeros for season six. While the "Deadwood" star's role is being kept under wraps (apparently it's quite small, but significant), Von Sydow will take the part of Bran Stark's tutor, Three-Eyed Raven (previously played by Struan Rodger in a couple of season four episodes). He's also not expected to be seen a lot in season six. So there you go. Jon Snow is dead, long live McShane and Sydow. [Entertainment Weekly] »

"Game of Thrones" Adds Another Big Name, Plus New Casting Call Details

18 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The "Game of Thrones" news continues to break. Shortly after learning Ian McShane is joining the sixth season in an, as-of-yet, unspecified role, we now know a two-time Oscar nominee is stepping in to fill a pivotal role in season six of the series. Max von Sydow, most famous for his roles in his films with Ingmar Bergman -- The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries and The Virgin Spring to name a few -- as well as the title role in The Exorcist and soon to capture geek attention with his role in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, is reportedly already on set and filming scenes. Entertainment Weekly reports he won't have an abundance of screen time but his role will be important. This sounds an awful lot like what was reported about McShane's role but the major difference is we already know exactly who von Sydow is set to play. »

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After Ian McShane joined the cast of Game of Thrones this week in a mystery role, another new addition to the cast has been revealed, with Variety reporting that Max von Sydow is set to play the Three-Eyed Raven in season 6 of Game of Thrones.

The Three-Eyed Raven has appeared in Bran Stark’s visions since the first season and appeared in physical form at the end of season 4, played by Struan Rodger. As the character has now been recast with such an iconic screen legend, we can be sure this role is of pivotal importance in the upcoming season.

The sixth season of Game of Thrones is currently in production, and the show will return to HBO in the Spring.

Max von Sydow joins Game of Thrones

22 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The latest star slated to join the GoT cast, the screen veteran will play supernatural character, the Three-Eyed Raven

While rumours about the status of Jon Snow continue to swirl, the rest of Game of Thrones’s sixth season is beginning to take shape. The latest star to join the cast? Max von Sydow, the renowned actor with a long career of playing slightly haunted characters in everything from the Exorcist to Minority Report.

According to Entertainment Weekly, von Sydow will play the Three-Eyed Raven, the supernatural mentor of Brann Stark. His is a character we have already encountered – albeit very briefly – in Game of Thrones’s fourth season, though the fact that the show’s creators have chosen an actor with the clout of von Sydow for the part indicates that the Three-Eyed Raven will play a more significant role this time around.

'Game of Thrones' Adds Max Von Sydow as Three-Eyed Raven

23 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Watch out, Bran Stark - Max von Sydow is coming for you!

The legendary actor ("Minority Report," "Star Wars: The Force Awakens") is joining the cast of "Game of Thrones" in season 6 as the Three-Eyed Raven, a mystical being who teaches Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) to use his gifts as a warg. The character was last seen in the season 4 finale, played by Struan Rodger.

Von Sydow won't have a ton of screen time, but will be highly influential Bran's storyline was put on hold this year, to allow space for other plots, but the young Stark will return having spent time under the Three-Eyed Raven's tutelage. Showrunner David Benioff likened it to Luke Skywalker's training with Yoda.

"Like, it would be far less interesting, after 'The Empire Strikes Back' to have an hour-long movie in between 'Empire' and 'Return of the Jedi' where Luke is training," he told Entertainment Weekly. »

Casting – Force Awakens to Game of Thrones for Max von Sydow, Supergirl Jenna Dewan-Tatum Knows her Lane

3 August 2015 8:13 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Jenna Dewan-Tatum adds her good looks to CBS’ Supergirl, joining the Lane family as Lucy, the sister of Lois Lane, in a recurring roll.

THR reports that Lucy has similar qualities to her big sis, being both brash, beautiful, and  armed with a sense of humor. She also has a connection with Jimmy Olsen. Look out for Jenna to debut in the third episode of the first season, which kicks off on CBS on October 26th with the enviable lead-in from the mega-popular (and perhaps audience sharing) Big Bang Theory.

Lucy Lane has roots from the ’50s, debuting in Jimmy Olsen’s comic and having some super adventures of her own.

Jimmy, forget Supergirl, Lucy Lane is what it’s about.

Max Von Sydow and Ian McShane Join Game of Thrones Season 6

3 August 2015 7:59 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

HBO has picked up two excellent veteran actors that will join Game of Thrones Season 6 in small yet important roles. One is coming off of a part in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, while the other is no stranger to the pay cable TV network having been the star attraction in Deadwood while the gritty western was on the air.

Entertainment Weekly broke both stories over the past couple days, starting with news that Ian McShane had joined the Game of Thrones cast in an undisclosed role. McShane, an Emmy-winning British actor, won't be seen in the series much, but EW's sources say his role is "of key importance" to the events of Season 6 that will extend beyond George R.R. Martin’s currently published books.

McShane will be joined by Max von Sydow, the latter of whom is already on-set and at work. Unlike McShane, »

Bran and the Three-Eyed Raven are set to make their triumphant return to season six of Game of Thrones after a season-long absence, but the mysterious figure will look different this time around: Variety reports that Max von Sydow, of Exorcist fame, will find time to play Bran's tutor after wrapping Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens.

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Gets Max Von Sydow as Three-Eyed Raven

3 August 2015 5:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after veteran actor Ian McShane joined the cast of Game of Thrones for Season 6, the hit HBO series has added another highly-respected veteran actor. Entertainment Weekly reports that Max von Sydow has signed on to play the Three-Eyed Raven in Game of Thrones this season. Both Ian McShane and Max von Sydow are not expected to have major roles, but each character is described as "crucial." No details were given for Ian McShane's character.

At the end of Season 4, the Three-Eyed Raven finally appeared before Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), after he reached the Weirwood Tree. The Raven was played by a different actor in the Season 4 finale, but now we'll see Max von Sydow as this mystical tutor to Bran. Last season, Bran and his travelling companion Hodor (Kristian Nairn) did not appear at all, since their story was already caught up to the George R.R. Martin books. »

Max Von Sydow Is Joining Game Of Thrones

3 August 2015 4:59 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Given the rate at which author George R.R. Martin (and the producers of the show based on his books) likes to off characters, it’s only right that Game Of Thrones keeps adding to its ranks, lest the show end up as Peter Dinklage talking to a tree. Following on from Ian McShane’s casting in a mysterious role, Entertainment Weekly brings word that venerable thesping type Max von Sydow is also headed for Westeros.Unlike his fellow new arrival, Sydow’s role is not so shrouded in secrecy. We’ll drop a Spoiler Alert here in case you don’t want to know, but he’s already at work as the character known for now as the Three-Eyed Raven, last glimpsed at the end of Season Four, and who will mentor Isaac Hempstead Wright’s Bran Stark in the ways of the warg. With the show diverting further from the books and, »
