Rakharo From ‘Game Of Thrones’ Joins Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’

Rakharo From 'Game Of Thrones' Joins Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar'

So, has Christopher Nolan journeyed to Westeros with the rest of America for the past few years watching “Game Of Thrones“? Or is this just a lucky break for an actor who appeared on the show? Or maybe both? Either way, the cast of “Interstellar” continues to grow, and grow and grow…..

The latest to come aboard is Elyes Gabel, who fans of ‘GoT’ might remember as Rakharo, a bodyguard to Daenarys in the first couple seasons of the show. In cinemas, he’s appeared more recently in “Weclome To The Punch” and this summer he had a part in “World War Z.” Naturally, no word on his role or even the plot of the Nolan time travel/wormhole flick, but Elyes does now get to hang out with Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothee Chalamet, Topher Grace and David Oyelowo.

Filming begins this month on “Interstellar” and it hits theaters on November 7, 2014.
