Game of Thrones swordsman Miltos Yerolemou, who played HBO series’ season one mentor to Arya Stark, has joined the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII in an undisclosed, but probably minor, role.

BBC News reports that the actor has  been cast to appear in a galaxy far, far away in the J.J. Abrams helmed follow-up to Return of the Jedi, but Lucasfilm declined to comment.

Gwendoline Christie was the first fellow Game of Thrones star to join battle between the light and dark sides of the Force, but it’s possible that this casting took place some time ago, too. Rumor claims she is playing one of the bad guys, an Imperial Commander obsessed with finding John Boyega’s character, who is said to be an AWOL Stormtrooper.

I imagine Yerolemou plays some kind of bad guy who uses a lightsaber, perhaps as one of these Inquisitors we have been hearing about. He`s really charismatic and could make you believe he was this master swordsman even tough he doesn`t have the traditional look of a great warrior.

Star Wars: Episode VII is due for release on December 18, 2015, and also stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, and Max von Sydow.
