Jim Broadbent spills the beans on his 'Game of Thrones' character

A five episode role this season is significant, given that this season will only consist of seven episodes leading into the eight episode season eight (which is slated to be the final season).

Broadbent's answer basically confirms that.

During an interview with ScreenCrush, the Harry Potter actor was asked about his significant Thrones role, which EW was first to report a year ago. Broadbent shared even more details that will add fire to fan theories about who exactly this archmaester is. I'm an old professor character. Shortly after that declaration, Broadbent said, "I'm a maester, an archmaester".

Today's nugget comes courtesy of new cast member and veteran actor Jim Broadbent, who revealed a bit about the character he'll be playing-and we have a good guess of who it is.

Again, we don't yet know if Marwyn is Broadbent's character, but it would make sense, and that kind of role could lead to Broadbent returning for the final season next year.

The actor also confirmed to the publication that he shared scenes with John Bradley, who plays Samwell Tarly.

Unlike the previous series which have premiered in spring, Games Of Thrones star Liam Cunningham recently let slip that the season is likely to be hitting our screens this July. Speaking with ScreenCrush about his time on the show, Broadbent did give us a big clue.

If you need a quick reminder, in Martin's novel A Feast for Crows, Marwyn is the character that Sam shares information with about everything that he's seen beyond The Wall with the White Walkers. Broadbent's word on shooting suggests no-or at least it probably won't involve dragons; he shot his scenes at the main Game of Thrones studio in Belfast, Northern Ireland (instead of out on location), and it didn't involve CGI.
