article imageSherlock's Mark Gatiss joins Game of Thrones, is ‘overwhelmed’

The actor and writer Mark Gatiss has joined the cast of HBO's Game of Thrones, and the reaction from fans couldn't make him happier.
A few days ago, Entertainment Weekly revealed exclusively that Gatiss was to join the science-fantasy drama series for its fourth season.
Apparently, Gatiss has been keeping quiet about his involvement in Game of Thrones for some time. At this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, where he was promoting the third series of Sherlock, he spoke about his casting to CNN.
"I've done my filming [and] I'm glad I didn't tell anyone before this since it's a big secret," he said. "[My casting] was obviously timed for Comic-Con and I'm rather overwhelmed with the reaction, honestly. It's a great show with so many brilliant people in it."
Mark Gatiss is co-creator with Steven Moffat of Sherlock, the BBC drama series in which he also stars as Sherlock Holmes's brother, Mycroft Holmes. The League of Gentleman also works with Moffat on Doctor Who, where he has been one of the regular writers since 2005.
The first episode of Game of Thrones was broadcast in the US in 2011.
