English actor Tom Brooke has joined Game of Thrones, according to his agency. The website of Conway van Gelder Grant announced on July 12th that Brooke and their clients Anton Lesser and Tobias Menzies would join the cast for season three.
The LAMDA-trained performer often plays roles with a comedic bent, such as his turn as Corporal Nym in the “Henry V” episode of The Hollow Crown. He appeared as Thick Kevin in Pirate Radio (UK title: The Boat That Rocked) and in 2011 starred in the National Theatre’s production of The Kitchen. Brooke is no stranger to darker roles as well, costarring in the 2011 thriller The Veteran and playing a serial killer on the UK show Thorne: Scaredy Cat.
It’s unknown at this time what role Brooke will be playing on the show. We have reached out to HBO for official confirmation of Brooke’s casting.
Ours is the Fury: Menzies and Lesser were confirmed on July 13th at Comic Con, as Edmure Tully and Qyburn, so I think this is pretty solid. Brooke has been excellent in every movie and show I’ve seen him in, so I’m happy he’s on board. Who do you think he’ll be playing?
