Game of Thrones season 7 is probably coming up too fast for those still processing what happened in the last season, but it seems the casting isn’t quite done yet. Some spoilers may be ahead, so tread carefully. According to fan site Watchers on the Wall, Australian actor Brendan Cowell is joining the Game of Thrones stage.
Information found on the actor’s resume have revealed that Cowell has been cast as Harrag the Ironborn. This has of course been removed since, but luckily these folks caught it in time.
Brendan Cowell is known for his role in The Borgias, as show that has a lot in common with Game of Thrones. Thus, he’ll no doubt do well in this new role as well.
The character, Harrag, however, is described as “a tough-looking bruiser with the attack skills of a pit bull, and the actor needs to be great at fighting” in the original casting post. Who knows what this means for the Ironborn as they figure out what to after the events of season 6.
Harrag, or Cowell, is to appear in episodes 3, 4 and 7 of the season, so hopefully that means he won’t die the moment we start to like or hate him too much.
Who do you think Harrag will be? Get the spoilers and theories out in the comments below!
