Game of Thrones Season 6 Lands Legendary Actor Max von Sydow

Bran Stark is coming back to Game of Thrones!

OK, that may not be that big of a surprise given he was sidelined for Game of Thrones Season 5, but the face of his mystical mentor, the Three-Eyed Raven, will look a little different than it did in the Game of Thrones Season 4 finale. 

He'll now be played by the legendary Max von Sydow!

If you recall, Bran has developed Warg powers and the Three-Eyed Raven was going to tutor him on how to more easily inhabit the bodies of animals. We don't know how far along Bran will have progressed in his training by the next time we catch up with him, but let's assume with von Sydow at the controls, the Three-Eyed Raven has done a great job.

This news comes just after other crucial casting news for Game of Thrones Season 6, that Ian McShane will join the ensemble as a mysterious new player.

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
