13. Jim Broadbent Is Playing An Archmaester
The big new cast member for Season 7 (so far) is Jim Broadbent. It's a move so obvious that I can't believe it took this long, since he's one of a few British acting legends not to have already appeared on the show.

We don't know who he'll be playing, but his stature, age, and appearance - alongside casting calls - suggest he'll be an Archmaester at the Citadel.

High-ranking Maesters who have an expertise in a chosen field, it suits where the story is going (as Sam has just arrived in Oldtown) and it's easy to imagine Broadbent in the role.

It may be that he brings to life Marwyn the Mage, the mysterious Archmaester who doesn't play by their typical rules. That seems fairly likely, though it could be a different Archmaester, or an amalgamation of book characters and new ones. Whichever character he is though, this seems like a strong rumour to bet on.
