Robert Kelly Associates;, the agency that represents Joseph Gatt had put a page on their website yesterday indicating that the actor has been cast in Game of Thrones to appear in season four. While that site has since taken the news down, Gatt’s facecbook page indicates that he has finished filming in Iceland and will appear in four episodes of the series.

Gatt has been working steadily in television and film since 2008. He appeared in the films Star Trek: Into Darkness and Thor.
Speculation is that Gatt will be playing Styr, the Magnar of Thenn. Styr is a wildling leader, one of the lieutenants of Mance Rayder and “Lord” of a clan that has joined Mance’s army. His shooting location and number of episodes seems to confirm this, but I’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
