‘Sherlock’ co-creator and actor Mark Gatiss made quite an impression when he guested on ‘Game of Thrones’ as ‘The Iron Bank’ Tycho Nestoris earlier this year because he is to reprise the role as the series steers into its 5th season.
The actor, producer and director is set to return to film in Croatia next week as filming on the fifth season gets underway.
Gatiss made this Thrones debut last season in the episode “The Laws of Gods and Men” where his Braavosi bank team agreed to fund Stannis Baratheon‘s war effort to capture the Iron Throne from Lannister control (the Lannisters are in heavy debt to the Iron Bank, which will stealthily fund a debtor’s enemies if they are not repaid in a timely manner). At the time, it wasn’t clear if the guest appearance was a one-time thing, and producers haven’t previously said whether he’ll be back one way or another.
Gatiss looks like he is set for a busy year as he splits his time between Thrones, Doctor Who and Sherlock—which he describes as having a “darker” fourth-season plan.
