Following the announcement that Namoi Watts has been cast in the first of HBO’s several Game of Thrones spin-off, Deadline is now reported that British actor Josh Whitehouse will be joining Watts in the series.

Whitehouse is a British actor who starred in Northern Soul and most recently finished filming the lead role in The Happy Worker, the David Lynch-executive produced drama directed by Lynch protege Duwayne Dunham. You can next see the up-and-coming actor in MGM’s musical retelling of the cult classic Valley Girl, playing the lead role originated by Nicolas Cage.

Kingsman’s Jane Goldman serves as showrunner and will executive produce alongside Martin as well as fellow GOT co-executive producer Vince Gerardis and Damages and Bloodline co-creator Daniel Zelman.
