Ian McShane And Max Von Sydow Join ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 6

Ian McShane And Max Von Sydow Join 'Game Of Thrones' Season 6

“Dead is dead as dead as dead. He be dead. Yes. From everything I’ve seen, heard, read, Jon Snow is indeed dead,” HBO‘s Michael Lombardo recently said. So let’s all move on and stop speculating about what Kit Harington‘s hair length might mean and move on because there is actual real and exciting news in the world of “Game Of Thrones.”

Ian McShane and the goddamn legendary Max Von Sydow have joined the world of Westeros for season six. While the “Deadwood” star’s role is being kept under wraps (apparently it’s quite small, but significant), Von Sydow will take the part of Bran Stark’s tutor, Three-Eyed Raven (previously played by Struan Rodger in a couple of season four episodes). He’s also not expected to be seen a lot in season six.

So there you go. Jon Snow is dead, long live McShane and Sydow. [Entertainment Weekly]
