Actor Miltos Yerolemou, best known for his role in the first series of fantasy drama Game of Thrones, has joined the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII.
He played expert and athletic swordsman Syrio Forel in Thrones and has taken on several other parts which involve sword fighting during his career.
His extensive experience will inevitably lead to speculation that he may use a lightsabre in the film.
However, his character in Star Wars is not thought to be a major one.
