Game of Thrones Max von Sydow

Game of Thrones: Bran's Mystical Guide Recast With Max von Sydow

A familiar Game of Thrones character will swoop in with a new face in Season 6.

Legendary film actor (and Tudors vet) Max von Sydow (Minority Report, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is set to take over the role of Three-Eyed Raven, EW.com reports.

Bran’s mystical tutor was last seen in HBO hit’s Season 4 finale portrayed by Struan Rodger.

Just like recent cast addition Ian McShane, von Sydow will play a small but crucial role in the upcoming season.

Game of Thrones fans, are you excited for the return of Bran’s storyline?
