Game of Thrones Season 7 – Angela Lansbury in Talks to Join Cast

Game of Thrones fans were none too pleased to learn that the next (and penultimate) season would return later than usual and run shorter than normal. On the bright side, though, it sure sounds like season seven will be worth the wait. Recently we heard Jim Broadbent was joining the next run of episodes for a “significant” role, and today a new rumor going around claims Angela Lansbury will pop up as well. 

You’ll want to take this one with a grain of salt, as no one official has confirmed the Game of Thrones Angela Lansbury casting. However, German outlet Bild (via The Independent) claims Lansbury will appear in two episodes of the upcoming seventh season. Her role is said to be a “minor cameo” that will require Lansbury to be on set for just four days. Details on her character have not been revealed, but based on that info it sounds like she’ll have a small but pivotal part along the lines of Ian McShane in season six.
