Miltos Yerolemou, the actor best known as Arya's skilled trainer in Game of Thrones, has been graduated to the next level of nerdy swordplay. According to the BBC, he's the latest actor joining Star Wars: Episode VII, sending him into another epic tale of empires, family, life, death, and coming back from death with a newly-bluish hue. The report claims that while Yerolemou isn't expected to have a major role, the fact that he "has taken on several other parts which involve sword fighting during his career" suggests that his action figure will likely come with a little translucent stick you can put in his hand.
In a case of art imitating life of someone who edits lightsabers into HBO clips, this casting comes over a year since someone on YouTube turned Yerolemou's final Game of Thrones scene into a beam-sword battle (as seen above). You can watch that here if you want a preview of what's maybe to come.
