Hot on the heels of the news that Ian McShane had been cast in Game of Thones Season six, it seems a true Hollywood legend has signed up too, reports EW

The great Max von Sydow has signed on to the HBO show to play… ready? The Three-Eyed Raven, the mystical tutor of Bran Stark.

The character was seen briefly at the end of season four, played by a different actor.

Von Sydow is an actor in such movies as The Exorcist, Minority Report, Flash Gordon and Star Wars: The Force Awakens and brings an awesome amount of gravitas to everything he does.

It is believed that, like McShane, Von Sydow will not have much screen time but there will be a large part of the story pivoting on them both.

This is an awesome bit of casting as we love Von Sydow in everything, so his inclusion in Game of Thrones will be greatly welcomed.

The series is expected to return for 10 episodes next spring.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
