‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Adds ‘Game of Thrones’ Miltos Yerolemou to Cast
The skilled swordsman whom you’ve come to adore with his few spars with Arya, “Game of Throne’s” Miltos Yerolemou joins the cast of the galaxy far, far away in “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Read on to learn more about this scoop.
You might have known him as Syrio Forel in “Game of Thrones.” Miltos Yerolemou is the character who reiterated the fate-challenging line “Not today.” From the kingdom of Westeros, he moves on to a different kind of afterlife as he joins in yet another remarkable storyline. This time, it won’t just be in television — it’s the big screen. He joins the force. He joins the esteemed cast for the upcoming sequel of the galaxy far, far away — “Star Wars: Episode VII.”
BBC made the fervent announcement that another actor was pulled in for the creation of the Star Wars sequel. However, they have not stated the specifics of his role in the film. Considering the facts, on the other hand, the “Game of Thrones” star is known to possess such prowess in his swordsmanship and speculations are suggesting that this newcomer will be wielding a lightsabre in the film. He could even possibly be playing a Jedi Master for all we know. Nonetheless, the report did quote that his role doesn’t ultimately fall on the main category.
Be that as it may, Lucasfilm didn’t make any comments regarding the announcement. Instead, they just kept mum and went on with their productions. According to Cinema Blend, the production recently resumed operations after taking a two-week hiatus due to the injury that Harrison Ford got on set. As of late, things are now going back on the saddle and are swinging in full motion as the cast and the crews (for both on cam and off cam) are resuming their production over at Pinewood Studios.
Yerolemou is not the only GOT star who got adapted for the franchise reboot of “Star Wars.” The first one who actually got the confirmation was Gwendoline Christie — also known as Brienne of Tarth — yes, the badass woman warrior in the series. There are rumors that her role is more heavily associated to the dark side, granting that the writers had a change of heart in replacing one of their male villains with a female one.
Such speculations and rumors are believed to have come from reliable sources, but Lucasfilm has not made any effort in confirming such. Guess we’ll have to wait for the time that they do. “Star Wars: Episode VII” is set to hit the theaters on Christmas season next year, Dec. 18, 2015.
And that’s the scoop for the highly speculated addition to the “Star Wars: Episode VII” casting list, with “Game of Thrones'” Miltos Yerolemou. Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates in the entertainment world.
