'Harry Potter' Actor Freddie Stroma Is Joining 'Game Of Thrones'

A Quidditch star is coming.

"Game of Thrones" seems to have more "Harry Potter" actors than there are students in all of Hogwarts, so why not add just one more.

Actor Freddie Stroma has officially been cast as Samwell Tarly's brother, Dickon, according to Entertainment Weekly. Stroma is known for his work in "UnREAL," "Pitch Perfect" and, of course, his role as Cormac McLaggen in the "Harry Potter" movies. 

You might remember McLaggen as the dude who tries to win the starting Keeper job from Ron in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." McLaggen was kind of a jerk in the movie, and Stroma's "Game of Thrones" character might not be much different.

Dickon is part of the reason Sam winds up on the Wall in the first place. Their dad Randyll Tarly wanted Dickon, who's considered more physically gifted, to be his heir, so Sam was basically given a choice between death or the Wall. 

Actor John Bradley, who plays Sam, previously told The Huffington Post that if his character met up with his father, Randyll, again, it would be the "peak of Sam’s dramatic narrative." Now that Dickon is making an appearance, there could be a major conflict with him, too.

In one corner, we have Dickon. He's physically gifted and apparently a member of the "Harry Potter" Slug Club. In the other corner we have Sam. He's ... like ... scared of stuff.

Anything could happen.
