Fresh off the news that Naomi Watts is heading to Westeros, HBO announced the next casting addition to the Game of Thrones prequel.

The spin-off series tapped Burberry model and actor Josh Whitehouse to play the lead in the forthcoming series, according to Deadline.

Whitehouse currently stars on the BBC series Poldark and also appeared in the 2014 film Northern Soul. However, you might best recognize him as the face of Burberry’s “Mr. Burberry” fragrance campaign.

In typical GoT fashion, plot and role details have yet to be announced. But we do know the prequel takes place thousands of years before Khaleesi and Cersei’s era. Further, the series will explain the origin of the White Walkers, among other mysterious Westeros folklore.

Hopefully we don’t have to wait “thousands of years” for the prequel to hit HBO.
