Game of Throneshas added another face to its cast...to play someone we've already seen!

Veteran actor Max von Sydow has signed on to the show to play the Three-Eyed Raven, EW reports. The magical, rather twiggy-looking guide for Bran Stark was previously seen in the Season 4 finale, played by Stuan Rodger.

Von Sydow's casting definitely confirms that the young Stark will be returning to the show, after taking a season off.

The news comes hot on the heels of the announcement that Game of Thrones has added Deadwood's Ian McShane in a role shrouded in secrecy.

Von Sydow is known for his famed feature roles, including The Exorcist and Minority Report, and he will appear in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And yes...he's already on set to film the new season.

Do you agree with the casting? Are you a fan of Max von Sydow?
