Miltos Yerolemou trained Arya Stark in Game Of Thrones. Next stop? Lightsabres in Star Wars...

There can't be too many casting announcements left where JJ Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII is concerned, but here's one. Miltos Yerolemou, who popped up in the first season of Game Of Thrones, has joined the now-shooting new Star Wars adventure.

Yerolemou played Syrio Forel in the show, notable for teaching Arya Stark about the ways of swordfighting. His role in the new Star Wars film is not expected to be a big one, but it is likely to involve waving a lightsabre around. He joins another Game Of Thrones alumni, Gwendoline Christie, in the new Star Wars cast.

Production continues on the film, which is due in cinemas in December 2015.
