‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Spoilers: Which Acting Legends Are Confirmed To Guest Star?

Now that production is officially under way, the Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers are coming out of the woodwork. With each new photo comes a new rumor, a new spoiler, a new insight into the much-anticipated season of the award-winning show based on the book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin. So what do the latest Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers tell us?

Warning: this post contains spoilers. Please do not continue to read this post if you do not wish to read about Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers.

According to Vanity Fair, one of the biggest Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers comes from what, precisely, a legendary actor will be doing on the show. British actor Jim Broadbent — an Oscar winner who is, perhaps, best known for his work on the Harry Potter films — is confirmed to be making an appearance on this season’s episodes. Many fans — including those who participate in Watchers on the Wall — speculate that Broadbent will be playing the role of Maester Marwyn, who plays a significant role in both Samwell Tarly’s time at the Citadel, and Daenerys’s future rule of Westeros. Though nothing has been completely confirmed as of yet, this wouldn’t be the first time that the producers mined the well of British acting royalty to appear on the show, as evidenced by the casting of the likes of Ian McShane and Diana Rigg.

Speaking of Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers, fans of the classic show Murder, She Wrote will be pleased to know that Angela Lansbury is also set to guest star in a few episodes of the show in the upcoming season. Metro is reporting that the 90-year-old actress was first confirmed to be appearing on the show by a German news outlet, and that this season will only have seven episodes (as opposed to the 10 episodes of seasons past). Moreover, it’s been further confirmed that Lansbury’s role will last for only two episodes of the show — in which Maisie Williams (who plays Arya Stark) has previously tweeted that “s**t gets real.” Again, though it hasn’t been confirmed which role Lansbury will be playing, it has been confirmed that she’ll be coming on board. Something that we definitely can’t wait to see!

The final set of Game of Thrones Season 7 spoilers come to us courtesy of Moviefone, who has confirmed that there are more than a few fan favorites that will be returning this season. Lord Baelish, played by Aiden Gillen, was recently spotted at a burrito bar in Belfast with Hafþór Björnsson (who plays The Mountain), where they confirmed that they were filming for the show for the past two days.

In addition to these sightings in Belfast, Watchers on the Wall confirmed that Lyanna Mormont — and her 62 soldiers — were also spotted in Belfast filming (though, sadly, they didn’t pay a visit to the burrito bar), and it seems as though the Bear Island house has at least one more go-round in the upcoming season. The question remains, will this house remain loyal to the Stark banner, or will it defect to the House Targaryen when our favorite Khaleesi comes to town? No doubt that they will not declare loyalty to the Lannister house, since it seems no one has any love for Cersei.
