It looks like Game of Thrones will be adding another famous actor to their list of guest appearances for the upcoming seventh season. Angela Lansbury, known for playing Mrs Pott and Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote, may possibly be joining the cast of season 7 of Game of Thrones.
According to the German news website Bild, Angela Lansbury is rumored to be making a couple of guest appearances during the next season of Game of Thrones. Because the site is in German, I made sure to translate it for you guys. Bild found out through their production circles that Angela Lansbury will be reporting to set for four days of filming. No specifics were mentioned in the article about what role she would be portraying. This follows a trend from Game of Throne casting directors not revealing any information regarding the truth behind their casting.
If this report is actually true, then we will be adding another Oscar contender to the Game of Thrones list this year now that Jim Broadbent has been confirmed as cast for the next season.
Season 7 will begin production late fall due to a need to shoot in harsher winter conditions. This delay in filming is the reason behind why we will not get a season premiere in April like we normally do. Instead the new season will premiere in the summer of 2017. The new season will only have 7 episodes instead of the usual 10. Until then, while we wait for the series to start filming, we just have to wait and see what news will be released next.
