Roger Ashton-Griffiths Cast As 'Mace Tyrell' In Season Four Of GAME OF THRONES
Author George R.R. Martin has revealed that British actor Roger Ashton-Griffiths has joined the cast of HBO's upcoming fourth season of Game of Thrones. Hit the jump for comments from the author and details on his role in the series.
After teasing fans with clues about the latest addition to the cast of HBO's Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin has now confirmed that Roger Ashton-Griffiths has been cast as 'Mace Tyrell'. He is the Lord of Highgarden, head of House Tyrell and father to Loras and Margaery (who is of course married to Joffrey). His mother - Olenna Tyrell - views him as a bit of a fool, but he still plays a big role in what happens at King's Landing. The author confirmed this news via his blog, saying: "He's a father, he's a son. He's been a bishop, a cardinal, a prior, a friar, a vicar, a knight, a lord, a mayor, a director. There's one born every minute, but by any other name he'd smell as sweet. Yes, it's the fine British character actor Roger Ashton-Griffiths, who has been cast in the role of Mace Tyrell, son to the Queen of Thorns, and father of Loras and Margaery." Griffiths has previously appeared in Gangs of New York, Torchwood and The Tudors.
