Very exciting but then so is any news about Game of Thrones season 6 really.
Share on Facebook (86) Tweet (118) Share Pin Game of Thrones appears to have cast yet another icon of British acting: Richard E. Grant. A change to Grant's agency CV spotted by GoT fansite Watchers on the Wall has added the fantasy show to his list of television appearances, although there's no indication about which character he might play. Grant is perhaps best known for his role as Withnail in the 1987 film Withnail & I, where he played an acerbic, alcoholic out-of-work actor. More recent roles include Doctor Who villain The Great Intelligence, world-weary Jasper in Girls, and art historian Simon Bricker in Downton Abbey.
