TVLine reports UnREAL actor Freddie Stroma has joined the season six cast of HBO‘s Game of Thrones as Samwell Tarly’s brother Dickon.
In season five, Sam was last seen leaving Castle Black, with Wildling Gilly and her baby in tow, at Jon Snow’s behest to become a Maester. He probably also didn’t want to see his dear Sam stabbed in the back by the less noble factions in the Night’s Watch.
The Maesters train at the Citadel in Oldtown, which brings Sam near his father’s seat in Horn Hill. Shortly after season five ended, casting sheets went out including an unnamed “cruel father” and various family members that many suspected would be the Tarlys. You may also remember that Sam and his father, Randyll Tarly, do not get along. Despite being the firstborn, Sam was stripped of his claim and ordered to take the black because of Randyll’s distaste for him. Dickon is the replacement heir.
In the novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, Sam is last seen taking up his duties at the Citadel, so Tarly family life, and Dickon, will be completely new material for the show.
