WEB DESK: Richard E Grants becomes the latest British actor to join the Game of Thrones series.
Charles Dance, Jonathan Pryce and Sean Bean are also actors of British descent who are part of Game of Thrones acting crew.
The news was not broken by HBO or the actor, but the fan site of the series watchersonthewall.com.
There are a number of roles in the sixth season of the hit show that are yet to have official casting announcements, including an entire theatre troupe.
One is unsure of what role Grants will play– a warrior or a courtesan.
