Mackenzie Crook And Diana Rigg For Game Of Thrones
The Office and Avengers stars lined-up for third series of fantasy show...
Fans of the hugely popular TV show Game Of Thrones might recognise a couple of familiar faces when they tune in for its third series next year, if casting reports are to be believed.
The Sun newspaper has reported that The Office star Mackenzie Crook and The Avengers actress Diana Rigg have both been recruited to bolster the cast of the fantasy series, which has a high fatality rate among its characters.
The pair are claimed by the paper to be among 14 new faces appearing in the third series of Sky Atlantic's swords and sex saga, which is adapted from the novels by George RR Martin.
Mackenzie, who played Gareth in The Office, has been cast as raider Orell, while Dame Diana is apparently set to play matriarch Olenna Tyrell.
