As we keep saying every time a new actor joins the cast of Game of Thrones, the show has had an amazing consistency with its cast, and even the new additions match up. We have been hearing about a lot of new actors being cast for Game of Thrones Season 7, and we recently reported about one of the biggest new additions : Jim Broadbent. The Oscar winning actor later revealed details about his character on the show, and it seems like he’s been doing quite a few interviews lately. The latest one had him talking about Game of Thrones, or at least a bit of it did. Read on!
While it’s unlikely that you haven’t ever heard of him, just in case you can’t recall who Jim Broadbent is, let us remind you. More recently, he played Professor Horace Slughorn in Harry Potter. He also starred in Moulin Rogue!, and won an Academy Award for his role in Iris. He certainly brings more class to the Game of Thrones roster. In a recent interview with Telegraph, he talked about a lot of things, including a small comment on Game of Thrones where he praised the show. He described the show saying :
“A misshapen Great Britain! History in miniature. And, just, narratives. People love narratives! Broad, but also subtle.”
When asked what made him decide to join the show, Broadbent had a concise answer :
“Goodies and baddies!”
The report by Telegraph also confirmed what we had previously speculated, Jim Broadbent will be playing Archmaester Marwyn, or whatever else they decide to rename the character upon adaptation. Archmaester Marwyn is a maester whom Samwell Tarly meets when he arrives at the Citadel in the book, A Feast for Crows. However, this isn’t a quote from Broadbent, but just something the report says, so we are still not a hundred percent sure about the legitimacy of that piece of information.
Broadbent also talked about a lot more, like his role in the upcoming film, The Sense of an Ending. You can read the full interview, over at Telegraph. Talk to us in the comments, below!
