Harry Potter actor Jim Broadbent reveals his character in Game of Thrones
After months of fan speculation, Jim Broadbent has revealed who he is playing in Game of Thrones' upcoming seventh season.
While the Harry Potter alum didn't give away the name of his character, he provided a description of the role. "I’m a maester, an archmaester. I’m an old professor character,” he told ScreenCrush during a recent interview.
He also divulged that he’s in five of the season’s seven episodes and has filmed scenes with Samwell Tarly (John Bradley), who viewers last saw arriving at the Citadel in Oldtown to begin training as a maester.
The reveal matches what fans have suspected about Broadbent’s character — that he’s an archmaester at the Citadel in Oldtown where Sam has gone to train to become a maester. Last season, it was guest star Ian McShane who had a tough time staying quiet on his role on the show, and even recently was still firing away at Thrones while promoting his upcoming Starz series, American Gods.
Game of Thrones season 7 is will premiere on Star World Premiere HD, Star Word HD and Star World in summer 2017.
