When Game of Thronesfulfills Cersei’s request for an army in Season 8, it’ll be led by face familiar to Into the Badlandsfans, a new report suggests.
The eagle-eyed Thrones devotees atWatchers on the Wall recently flagged a theatrical agency’s announcement that Marc Rissmann has been cast as Harry Strickland in the HBO drama’s upcoming eighth and final season. (HBO declined to comment on the casting, and the announcement has since been removed.)
In the George R.R. Martin novels on which the TV series is based, Harry Strickland is the leader of the Golden Company, aka the contingent of mercenary soldiers Cersei sent Euron Greyjoy to fetch in the Season 7 finale.
Rissmann played Nos during Season 2 of AMC’s Into the Badlands. He also had a role in BBC America’s The Last Kingdom.
