Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington, who was cast as Catelyn Stark’s son in the new Star Wars movie, will serve as a producer on the project, according to a new report.
Harington and Disney chairman Bob Iger were reportedly spotted together in New York at a casting call.
Hearing, whose father has played an important role in the development of Star Wars, is the first major addition to the cast, who also include Andy Serkis, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Hayley Atwell, Emile Hirsch, Gwenn Grey, Kit Hiddleston, Sophie Turner and Anthony Daniels.
Harkness is expected to appear in the film as a new character, and will also appear as a minor character in the next installment.
He will be playing the young Han Solo in the third installment, and it’s unclear whether he will appear as the main antagonist in Episode VII.
