From Murder, She Wrote to Game of Thrones… Is 90-year-old Angela Lansbury signing up for the seventh series of the hit fantasy drama?

Veteran actress Angela Lansbury is reportedly in discussions with Game of Thrones bosses to appear in series seven.

Angela, 90, who is most famed as an author-turned-sleuth in the long-running TV show Murder, She Wrote, is reported in The Sun to be the latest addition to the ever-expanding cast.

If true, Angela will be joined by War & Peace star Jim Broadbent, 67, in the fantasy drama after he was confirmed to be playing a “major role” in the show’s upcoming seventh season, with the eighth season being the show’s last.

It is unclear as of yet what role Angela would be taking on should she sign on to the show, but she will join a host of famous faces who have come and gone as guest roles in the show, including Ian McShane, who made a fleeting guest appearance in the last series as slain priest Ray and Clive Russell, who played Brynden “Blackfish Tully”, and who is about to appear in Hollyoaks.

The regular cast members of the show have been teasing the upcoming season to be the most epic yet, with Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, updating fans with cryptic non-spoiler messages on her Twitter account.

In a series of recent posts, she wrote: “just finished reading season 7 – s*** gets REAL – i’d start preparing yourselves now – scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this – holy BALLS.”

Game of Thrones season 7 is expected to air next spring.
