Epic Swordsman Joins 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Cast

15 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

What's a Star Wars movie without an epic lightsaber battle or two? Well, it looks like director J. J. Abrams seems to be making sure we get just that. BBC is reporting that Miltos Yerolemou has joined the cast of Episode VII.

Yerolemou most famously played expert swordsman Syrio Forel on HBO's Game of Thrones. He's also played other roles that required his expertise with a sword, so it stands to reason that it's this talent of his that Abrams is looking to exploit as well. The report claims that the role isn't thought to be a major one. But it could still be cool to see him pop up for some sort of quick, intense lightsaber throwdown.

Yerolemou joins Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, John Boyega, and many others in this epic cinematic relaunch of the Star Wars franchise. Principal photography on the film recently resumed, »

Star Wars Episode VII Adds Game of Thrones Swordsman to the Cast

17 hours ago | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

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.

Game Of Thrones Actor Miltos Yerolemou Joins Star Wars: Episode VII

1 September 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 »

1 September 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

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.

Former Game of Thrones star joins Star Wars: Episode VII

1 September 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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.

Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015 and 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 »

Game Of Thrones’ Miltos Yerolemou Joins Star Wars: Episode VII

1 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

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 Resumes for Star Wars Episode VII After Harrison Ford's Injury

29 August 2014 1:43 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

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. »

The Force Is With Harrison Ford As Star Wars Episode VII Resumes Production

29 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

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. »

'Star Wars 7' Resumes Shooting with Harrison Ford

28 August 2014 5:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

Harrison Ford had to undergo surgery, with Star Wars: Episode VII taking a two week break in early August while the actor healed.

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, »

Star Wars Episode VII has resumed filming once again, following a recent hiatus while star Harrison Ford recovered from a leg injury.

Star Wars Episode VII will feature original trilogy stars Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew reprising their roles.

Star Wars: Episode VII resumes production following Harrison Ford’s injury

28 August 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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.

Als Ice Bucket Challenge fever has swept the cast and crew of Star Wars: Episode VII

26 August 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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 »
