When Fandoms Collide: Mark Gatiss to Join Game of Thrones


Actor, writer, producer and general cult hero Mark Gatiss, perhaps best known for his work on Sherlock and Doctor Who, will be joining the sprawling cast of HBO‘s Game of Thrones, Entertainment Weekly has revealed.

pedro-pascal-1-295x350Though his role has not yet been specified, fan speculation currently points to Mace Tyrell, father of MargaeryJoffrey‘s bride-to-be. Interestingly, however, Hypable has suggested that Season 4 may be looking to focus more on the Greyjoys, given the heavy emphasis on Yara‘s journey in the Season 3 finale, and as such, offers Aeron or Euron as alternative possibilities.

Filming for the new season began last Monday, and so far, only one other new actor has been cast: the Chilean Pedro Pascal will take up the role of the sly yet charming Oberyn Martell, a.k.a. The Red Viper. We have, however, been provided with a full list of directors for each episode:

Episode 1: David Benioff & D.B. Weiss
Episode 2: Alex Graves
Episode 3: Alex Graves
Episode 4: Michelle MacLaren
Episode 5: Michelle MacLaren
Episode 6: Alik Sakharov
Episode 7: Alik Sakharov
Episode 8: Alex Graves
Episode 9: Neil Marshall
Episode 10: Alex Graves

This weekend, Mark Gatiss will be attending the San Diego Comic Con to talk about the show, though fans of his other work might have trouble restricting their questions to Game of Thrones-related subjects!

Which Game of Thrones part can you see Gatiss playing? Let us know your theories!
