Star Wars: Episode VII Gains Game of Thrones Swordsman

By on September 2, 2014


Syrio Forel is heading to a galaxy far far away. The “Game of Thrones” actor Miltos Yerolemou who played Syrio has officially joined the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. 

It is currently unknown what the role of Yerolemou will be but we do know that he is not playing a major role. Hopefully the sword master will get to yield a lightsaber however.

Yerolemou is not the only GoT alum to take a trip to another galaxy. Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth in the series, is also in the cast of “Episode VII.”

Star Wars: Episode VII stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o, Christina Chong, Crystal Clarke and Pip Anderson.

Star Wars: Episode VII will release in theaters on December 18, 2015. It was directed by J.J. Abrams.
