GAME OF THRONES: Mark Gatiss Will Return For Season 5

GAME OF THRONES: Mark Gatiss Will Return For Season 5

Although the Sherlock actor/co-creator only made one brief (but memorable) appearance as Tycho Nestoris in season 4 of the HBO fantasy series, it seems the Iron Bank of Braavos will play a part in the upcoming fifth season too.


After agreeing (with some persuasion from Davos) to fund Stannis Baratheon's new war effort to seize the Iron Throne from the Lannisters in the season 4 episode "The Laws of Gods and Men", it appears Braavosi banker Tycho Nestoris will return next year to keep a close eye on his investment. EW report that Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Doctor Who, The League Of Gentlemen) will reprise the role, and is expected on the Croatia set next week. Also, the site have an update on the recent report that a very famous scene from the books involving a naked Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister was being held up due to a conflict with a Dubrovnik church. Apparently that's "old news" now, and a new filming location has been sorted. So, great news all 'round then!

I always thumb up nakedness.

This was expected if you read the books.

I like the show a lot but I always think these people are stupid for chasing the iron throne - once you get there you're either stabbed in the back or deposed and killed by an enemy/rival.

I like Gatiss though. Has had a weirdness about him since League of Gentlemen

People who haven't read the book are gonna lose their shit when Daenerys gets killed this season.

What I really want to know is what happened to the Frey girl who got married on the Red Wedding??? I was hoping she'll get naked on Season 4!

The Lannisters will finally be paying their debts on season 5. With Tywin dead, Varys and Tyrion gone, the Iron Bank cutting off the Lannisters and nobody with any good sense advising the young King Tommen... things will get very interesting.
DrKinsolving - 8/28/2014, 7:26 AM

Definitely, and that's just a small part of what's in store, lot's of changes, this could be the best season yet.... Braavos is a very interesting place too, can't wait to really see it explored

Looks like the walking dead game is out
RorMachine - 8/28/2014, 7:42 AM
Congrats are literally only the third person I've ever encountered that doesn't like GAME OF THRONES! You win ..nothing.
Pasto - 8/28/2014, 7:44 AM
You are doing the lords work my friend.
Niklander - 8/28/2014, 8:19 AM
Hooray for the people who have read the books unlike me
sKeemAn - 8/28/2014, 8:31 AM
I cant wait for season 5. Justice is better served cold, wet and naked.
MercwithMouth - 8/28/2014, 8:32 AM
Can't wait for season 5. Quite enjoying catching up on the first 3 seasons. I can really see what I was missing now.

And this is not what was missing, right @Pasto?

Asrchele - 8/28/2014, 8:33 AM
@RorMachine It's the second one for me. Very unique persons.
batman001 - 8/28/2014, 9:31 AM
guys do you realise what this means we get to see lena heady naked boners all around
MercwithMouth - 8/28/2014, 10:16 AM

Not like we haven't seen that before...
MercwithMouth - 8/28/2014, 10:17 AM
I'll be more excited when we get to see Sophie Turner a la nude.
BlackHulk - 8/28/2014, 10:26 AM
@ DrKinsolving

Indeed, Between the Martell's swearing allegiance to the Targaryens, Stannis reining terror on the North and the Frey's answering for their crimes, the Lannister downfall would not be complete without a special touch from Varys.

"People who haven't read the book are gonna lose their shit when Daenerys gets killed this season."

Right you are. But it's still unbelievable to me that she could have survived being raped by Drogon long enough, to give birth to their halfbreed. Especially after seeing the size of the dragons in the series.

Oh come on, you liars.

It's Melisandre that mates with the dragon, then flies over King's Landing farting out fire-breathing shadow dragons that strangelt the entire populace right before the White Walkers descend on the city and rapes all the corpses, while Arya becomes a street doxy in Braavos and Tyrion and Varys get married and hire Daenerys' army of eunuchs to land on Westerosi shores and scissor every last remaining inhabitant to death.
Tidaltree - 8/28/2014, 5:31 PM
Both Arya and Tyrion were watching the birth, that's right. But Varis wasn't anywhere near where it happened: He stayed in Westeros in the books! Cheap attempt to obfuscate. Who digs the series and still hasn't read the books just got what he deserved. Honestly: Read the books!
batman001 - 8/29/2014, 2:17 AM
@mercwithmouth but any chance to see her naked is a good thing
MercwithMouth - 8/29/2014, 7:30 AM

Very true...It's probably the only reason I've seen 300 more than once...
batman001 - 8/29/2014, 9:31 AM
@mercwithmouth it's the reason why anyone's seen 300 once
