The BBC reports that another Game of Thrones cast member has joined the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. Miltos Yerolemou, who plays Syrio Forel, is known for his various swordfighting roles over his career. He could end up using a lightsaber in the movie, but his character isn't believed to be a major one. He joins Gwendoline Christie, who also appears on Thrones as Brienne of Tarth.
The film has been shooting at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire after a hiatus due to the injury to Harrison Ford, who plays Han Solo. He is joined in the film by Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and others. The film will arrive in December 2015.
