One of these men is Richard E Grant. We’ll let you work it out…


The acting legend that is Richard E Grant has been cast in season six of Game Of Thrones, but as with Ian McShane, there’s confirmation about what role he’ll be playing as yet. But whoever it is, he’ll have a great voice.

Grant, probably the best Doctor Who there never was (unless you count internet animations and Comic Relief skits) has a whole load of memorable roles to his name in films like Withnail And I, Bram Stoker’s Dracula and the much underrated Hudson Hawk. On TV he eventually made an appearance in Doctor Who opposite Matt Smith as Dr Simeon/The Great Intelligence, and also starred in The Scarlet Pimpernel and guest starred in Downton Abbey among many, many other things.

Entertainment Weekly conformed the casting after Watchers On The Wall broke the news. Watchers speculates he could be playing Randyll Tarly, Areon Greyjoy, Lord Karstark and Smalljon Umber. Then again he could be playing a character we’ve never heard of – let’s be honest we’re at that stage in the show’s life now where the books are no longer much of a giveaway.
