While speaking to ScreenCrush, actor Jim Broadbent revealed a few details about his role in Game of Thrones Season 7, which is due to debut this summer on HBO.

"I’m a maester," he said. "An archmaester. I’m an old professor character… I did five episodes. I did sort of one major scene in each episode." He has also teased that some of his character's scenes feature Samwell Tarly (played by John Bradley).

There have been very few leaks about the plot of Game of Thrones Season 7, with all the cast remaining incredibly tight lipped about the whole thing. Kit Harrington, who plays one of the lead roles as Jon Snow, did unveil that things get "very dark" before they get better.

"I think it’s going to get very bleak before if there is a happy ending," he said. "If there’s any sort of win or heroic moment for Jon and everyone else. I think it’s going to get very dark before it gets better. I think what we might see this season is those White Walkers and that Army of the Dead really come into force. So that’s going to be exciting to see."

Season 7 will be the penultimate season of Game of Thrones. The final season will be released in 2018.
