As production continues on season six, it looks as Game Of Thrones will have an Emmy winner joining their ranks when the show returns.
Multiple sources have confirmed that Deadwood actor Ian McShane is set to join the cast, although details of the role he will play are being kept firmly under wraps. It is rumoured however that he will play a key part in the show but have only a small amount of time on screen.
With the show and the books on which it is based, the A Song Of Ice And Fire series by George R.R. Martin, now all but caught up with one another, season six should see the show step into unknown territories
The new ten episode series is expected to air early next year while earlier this week it was announced that HBO, the network behind the show, hope for it to run for at least eight seasons.
