Game of Thrones Season 6 is months away, and the long-awaited Winds of Winter might come out in February or it might come out never, so all we’ve got left to hang our icy, fiery hats on right now are sweet, sweet casting announcements! Thankfully, we’ve got plenty.
The legendary Max von Sydow (The Exorcist, The Seventh Seal, an upcoming indie flick called Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is joining the cast of Season 6 as the Three-Eyed Raven, the spooky Dumbledore-type who met up with Bran when we last saw him in the Season 4 finale. And Deadwood‘s Ian McShane is joining the party in a mysterious, yet crucial role. Could it be that Nerdist News has a theory? Yeah, duh, of course we do.
Join Jessica Chobot as she breaks down what the Three-Eyed Raven’s beefed-up role could mean for GOT and why Ian McShane might be playing a character that will serve as the key to revealing one of A Song of Ice and Fire‘s greatest mysteries on today’s Nerdist News!
