With filming of Game of Thrones Season 7 continuing in Iceland, casting news still is occurring.  The latest addition to the show helps fill out the Iron Islands cast for season seven, and WoTW broke the news. According to his agency résumé, Australian actor Brendan Cowell has joined the cast of Game of Thrones for season seven. Cowell is known for appearing in works such as Brock, The Borgias, Love My Way, Life Support and the 2004 version of Salem’s Lot. He’s also a playwright and screenwriter, with several credits to his name.
According to the agency site, he’ll be taking on the role of Harrag the Ironborn. The character is most likely one original to the series, with Benioff and Weiss borrowing his name from a tertiary book character. We’ve actually already seen Harrag on the set, but we didn’t know it at the time.

More on that after the cut, because spoilers!

 

According to the report, Cowell took part in filming in Basque Country last fall. The Ironborn were seen shooting a landing  in Zumaia, and then a few days later, a fight scene was shot on the shores. At the time of filming, it was unclear whether this scene was from the premiere or the finale (due to episode director Jeremy Podeswa‘s presence), but sources have now confirmed that this scene is from the finale.
