"Star Wars: Episode VII" Casts Miltos Yerolemou

  • Written by 

Popular Greek-Cypriot actor Miltos Yerolemou has just joined the Star Wars: Episode VII cast.

The London based entertainer is widely known for his Game of Thrones role as Syrio Forel. First reported by BBC, his new Star Wars role is not considered to be a key character.

Yerolemou follows fellow Game of Thrones actor Gwendoline Christie who is set to play Brienne of Tarth in Star Wars. The movie is currently being shot at Pinewood Studios.

Episode VII had temporarily stopped production, due to actor Harrison Ford's on-set injury, resulting in a broken leg. Producer Lucasfilm has not yet commented on Yerolemou's new role. Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled for release in December 2015.
