‘Game of Thrones’ Recasts Three-Eyed Raven with ‘Exorcist’ star

Game of Thrones has recast the role of the Three-Eyed Raven with a silver-screen legend for Season 6. This is the second high profile casting news in the last couple of days.

EW reports that Max von Sydow is joining the HBO hit, just days after Ian McShane joined the cast in a mystery role.

Von Sydow’s role is not a mystery however: he is plying the Three-Eyed Raven, Bran Stark’s tutor, who was played by a different actor in the Season 4 finale.

Von Sydow starred in The Exorcist and is appearing in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

EW notes that both McShane and Von Sydow will not really see “that much screen time” for Season 6, but their roles are super important to the story.
