Game of Thrones star Ciaran Hinds set for crime drama role in Shetland
Game Of Thrones star Ciaran Hinds will be "locking swords" with Douglas Henshall in the new series of crime drama Shetland.
The Belfast-born actor, who plays Mance Ryder in the fantasy epic, is joined by Anna Chancellor and Julie Graham in the six-part series which stars Henshall as detective Jimmy Perez.
Hinds said: "I'm looking forward to locking swords with Douglas Henshall and working against the stunning backdrop of Shetland. I came to Scotland a lot in the '70s and '80s in various theatre productions and of course to film Hallam Foe but this is the furthest I've ever been." The series centres on the disappearance of a young man on a ferry crossing from Aberdeen to Lerwick.
