Jim Broadbent joins Game of Thrones season 7 in “significant” role

31 August 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO has cast its first new addition for the seventh season of Game of Thrones, with Entertainment Weekly reporting that Oscar-winner Jim Broadbent (Iris, Harry Potter) has signed on for a “significant” role.

With the producers opting to keep details of said role under wraps, we can only speculate as to who Broadbent could be playing. Based upon the casting breakdown that arrived online earlier this month the only real possibility seems to be a character referred to as ‘Priest’, who was described as “A venerable priest with moral authority and gravitas. White actor with an Rp accent and a characterful face.”

8 July 2016 3:11 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Other than Shekhar Kapoor no Indian director has so far had the privilege of directing a full-fledged British production with a cast and crew from outside India. After The Lunchbox which fetched its director an instant and enduring global fame, Ritesh Batra was given the singular honour of directing a BBC-produced screen adaptation of British author Julian Barnes Booker-winning novel The Sense Of An Ending about a man's search for his friends from his youth. Barnes' novel was adapted to the screen by celebrated playwright Nick Payne. Batra directed the very accomplished Jim Broadbent (who won the Oscar for his performance Iris) in the protagonist's role.
