The Lord Oaf Of Highgarden


Roger Ashton-Griffiths has been cast as Mace Tyrell, father to soon-to-be-Queen Margaery, in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, meaning I and most of the internet was entirely wrong about Mark Gatiss playing the role. That means Gatiss is either playing Styr, a minor role, or a surprise that hasn't been previously announced (one of the Greyjoy brothers perhaps?).

Ashton-Griffiths has had a long career in theatre and film, having appeared in Gangs of New York, played Hitchock in Grace of Monaco, and appeared in the Tudors. I look forward to him exchanging barbs with his Westerosi mother, played by Diana Rigg.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
