Thrones Actor Joins “Star Wars: Episode VII”

Miltos Yerolemou, who had a small but memorable role as Arya Stark’s sword trainer in the first season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” has joined the cast of “Star Wars: Episode VII” in an undisclosed role.

Yerolemou has played numerous sword wielding characters throughout his career, so it is naturally being speculated that he will be called upon to use a lightsaber in the film.

Though undisclosed, the role is said to be only a minor one. Yerolemou most recently worked on the BBC adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s booker prize winning novel “Wolf Hall”.

The project resumed shooting last week at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire following a brief hiatus. The injury sustained by Harrison Ford, which led to the hiatus, is also said to have happened during filming on a top secret set rather than on the Millennium Falcon set as has been widely reported.
