Star Wars’ Oliver Ford Davies joins Game Of Thrones cast

Queen Amidala’s advisor signs up to advise King Stannis.

Veteran English actor Oliver Ford Davies, who played Sio Bibble, the governor of Naboo in all three Star Wars prequels (pictured to the left of Qui-Gon Jinn), has enlisted to play Maester Cressen of Dragonstone, the loyal advisor to self-proclaimed king Stannis Baratheon, in the second series of Game Of Thrones.

This follows three roles revealed yesterday, so work is well underway on one of our most eagerly anticipated new series.
