English actor Mark Killeen has been cast in the role of Mero, the Titan’s Bastard, for season 3 of Game of Thrones.
He has appeared in such films as The Dark Knight Rises, Rise of the Footsoldier, and the upcoming sequel, 300:Rise of an Empire, and on several British television shows including Doctor Who and Waking the Dead. Killeen played the role of Vincent Catalano in the feature, The Callback Queen, a film with a character in fact based on George R.R. Martin. This caused some unintended speculation here in May of 2011, after Martin referenced the movie on his blog.
Mero, a Braavosi nicknamed the Titan’s Bastard, is captain of a sellsword company called the Second Sons. Daenerys meets the captain during her travels in Essos. According to the actor’s CV, he’ll be appearing in episode 8, directed by Michelle MacLaren.
UPDATE: It looks like Killeen has upload a photo of himself in costume as Mero to IMDb.
