It appears that Banshee and Star Trek Into Darkness actor Joseph Gatt has won a role in the fourth season of Game of Thrones.
The casting was discovered by WiC commenter The Rabbit, who spotted the announcement on the news page of Robert Kelly Associates, the actor’s agency. (The casting announcement has been deleted since the initial discovery.) Gatt’s Facebook page reveals that he has just wrapped filming in Iceland, and will be appearing in four episodes total.
We have reached out to HBO for official confirmation of the casting.
Update: HBO confirms that Gatt has been cast, but declines to confirm the actor’s role at this time.
Ours is the Fury: Fans have been speculating that Gatt may be playing Styr, given he mostly fits the description of the wildling leader. With a four episode role and such a striking appearance, it seems like a strong possibility.
