'Doctor Who' Season 13 Adds 'Game of Thrones' Alum Jacob Anderson

The Wrap


"Game of Thrones" alum Jacob Anderson has joined the cast of "Doctor Who" Season 13 in the role of Vinder, the actor revealed during the BBC America show's Comic-Con@Home panel Sunday.

The addition of Anderson, who played Grey Worm on "GoT" to the cast follows the exits of series regulars Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole after the Jodie Whittaker-led show's holiday special at the beginning of the year. As previously announced, John Bishop has also joined the cast for Season 13 in the role of Dan.

Moderated by Salon.com’s Melanie McFarland, the virtual San Diego Comic-Con 2021 panel for "Doctor Who" featured showrunner Chris Chibnall, star Jodie Whittaker (the 13th Doctor), Mandip Gill (who plays Yaz), and new cast members Bishop and Anderson.

The new arrivals come after the first big cast change for showrunner Chris Chibnall came in the New Year's special "Revolution of the Daleks," in which the Doctor's father/son companions Graham and Ryan, played by Bradley Walsh and Tosin Cole, chose to end their adventures in the TARDIS.
