The actor Miltos Yerolemou, the best known for playing swordsman Syrio Forel in HBO's 'Game of Thrones' series, has joined the cast of Disney's 'Star Wars: Episode VII'. Yerolemou has played numerous parts involving sword-fighting throughout his career and it is assumed he will take up a similar role, perhaps with a lightsaber, in J.J Abrams' movie.

BBC News report that Yerolemou's role is not thought to be a major one, though LucasFilm have declined to comment on the casting.

He is the latest 'Game of Thrones' alum to join the cast of the movie, with Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth, also announced as part of the principal cast in June.
