GAME Of Thrones star John Bradley – aka Samwell Tarly – has joined the cast of the BBC’s Merlin.

The actor will appear in the fifth series of the popular BBC programme, which is due to be aired in the autumn. The news was announced via Merlin‘s official Twitter feed.

Bradley – whose Game of Thrones character is the companion of Kit Harington’s Jon Snow and who was last seen in a genuine spot of bother – will portray a character called Tyr Seward.

Ironically, Bradley is not the only Game of Thrones star to be heading to Merlin. His series co-star Liam Cunningham was also recently revealed to have signed up for a role in the series, as well as landing a key part in Doctor Who. Find out more

The BBC is also hopeful of securing a sixth season of Merlin.
