Actor Miltos Yerolemou is set to reunite with his Game Of Thrones co-star Gwendoline Christie on the set of the new Star Wars film.

The Greek actor, who played swordsman Syrio Forel in the fantasy Tv series, has become a late addition to the cast of director J.J. Abrams' sci-fi sequel after landing a small role in Star Wars: Episode Vii.

Christie's casting was announced earlier this summer (14), when producers also revealed Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o would be appearing onscreen alongside the likes of Andy Serkis, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac and original franchise stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.

Shooting on the highly-anticipated Star Wars project recently resumed in the U.K. following a brief hiatus to allow veteran actor Ford to fully recover from a broken leg injury sustained on the set in June (14).

Star Wars: Episode Vii is due for release in December, 2015.
