Roger Ashton-Griffiths will recur on Game of Thrones Season 4.

The veteran actor - who appeared on The Tudors in 2009 - has been cast on the HBO epic as Mace Tyrell, the father of Margaery and Loras Tyrell and the son of Olenna Tyrell. Look for him to stop by for multiple episodes when this drama returns in 2014.

Game of Thrones Quotes

Tyrion: Let me give you some advice bastard. Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.
Jon: What the hell do you know about being a bastard?
Tyrion: All dwarfs are bastards in their father's eyes.

I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.

Tyrion Lannister
