It’s another feather in Max von Sydow’s cap: the veteran Swedish thespian is joining the cast of “Game of Thrones.” Fresh off his turn in the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the 86-year-old actor has been recruited for the HBO fantasy series’ upcoming sixth season, Entertainment Weekly reported. Von Sydow will play the Three-Eyed Raven, a supernatural guide for Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright), according to the report. The part was previously played by British actor Struan Rodger in two episodes during season four. The second youngest Stark’s saga was left out of last season. News of Von Sydow’s casting comes a day after EW broke the scoop that “Deadwood” alum Ian McShane was also joining the cast, in a mystery role. Production is already underway in Europe on the batch of 10 new episodes, slated to premiere next spring. HBO’s head of programming Michael Lombardo told television critics last week that the network was planning on an eight-season run for “Game of Thrones,” adding an extra batch to the previously expected seven seasons.
