It looks like a mysterious figure from beyond the Wall will be making an appearance on Game of Thrones in season 4. According to his agency resume, British actor Struan Rodger has been cast in the role of the Three-Eyed Raven.
The character (called the Three-Eyed Crow in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels) is connected to Bran Stark and his quest for understanding the visions that have come to the boy since he was pushed from the tower at Winterfell.
Rodger is a familiar face in British film and television, turning up in programs such as Chandler & Co., Rumpole of the Bailey, The Thick Of It, and Law and Order UK. He memorably lent his voice to two episodes of Doctor Who as the Face of Boe. His film credit highlights include Kill List, Stardust, Young Adam, Chariots of Fire, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and The Madness of King George.
Ours is the Fury: I’m curious whether we’ll be seeing the human Raven in the flesh this season or if this will be an appearance in a vision, similar to how we met Jojen first in a dream.
