joseph-quinn-cast-in-game-of-thronesTwo British actors have joined the massive cast of Game of Thrones, with little information revealed about their roles.

Joseph Quinn and Paul Ward are the newest additions to the ever-growing cast of Game of Thrones, with Jim Broadbent being announced earlier as the first high profile newcomer to the epic fantasy drama.

According to a report on Watchers on the Wall, Joseph Quinn, who played Arthur Havisham in BBC’s Dickensian, will be playing a character named “Koner.” There is no such character in the books of A Song of Ice and Fire series, so book readers cannot speculate on who this character is.

The other addition to the cast is Irish actor Paul Ward (Vikings, Penny Dreadful) whose role has not yet been revealed. Many details about the upcoming season have been kept under wraps, to prevent spoilers from leaking to the public. Avid fans of the show will have to wait patiently to learn the fates of the favorite characters in Westeros.

Game of Thrones season 7 will be shorter than previous seasons and is set to air in summer 2017 on HBO.
