Aidan Gillen Cast in Upcoming HBO’s GAME OF THRONES

Aidan Gillen

Aidan Gillen has signed on to join the cast of HBO’s new series “Game of Thrones.” Gillen will be joining the cast as a regular for the upcoming fantasy series on the premium television network.

Gillen will play the role of the manipulative character Littlefinger on the show. Littlefinger is an advisor to King Robert who uses his position to sway things in his favor. The new series is in the midst of reshoots at HBO and a trailer that was set to appear at Comic-Con has been delayed, raising questions for some. While some view the reshoots as a sign of trouble with the show, many just feel it is HBO working to make sure the job is done correctly the first time.

Gillen is not new to HBO by any means, having played the role of Councilman Thomas ‘Tommy’ Carcetti on “The Wire.” Gillen also appeared in Showtime’s “Queer as Folk” and the feature film “Shanghai Knights.”
