Charles Dance is getting involved in a new Netflix docuseries called Rise of Empires: Ottoman, reports Deadline. The Game of Thrones alum will provide narration in the original English-language-version of the show.
Sarah Wetherbee, Founding Partner of Karga Seven Pictures, had this to say of the series:
“The Ottoman era is a fascinating period of history, and from the very beginning we knew we wanted to use a combination of strong documentary narrative and epic scripted to tell this story. With Karga having such a well-established production base in Istanbul, filming in Turkey has enabled us to produce the lavish, high-end series we wanted to make, and it has been great to partner with STX and Netflix to bring the show to life.”
Dance played the role of Tywin Lannister from Season 1 to Season 4 on Thrones. Though his character was memorable enough, his death certainly went down as one of the most iconic murder scenes in the HBO series' history. Fans will remember that his son, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) shot him with a crossbow while he was doing his business in the bathroom.
Since the show's end, Dance has come out and admitted he wasn't the biggest fan of the finale, saying he was "confused" by it, like most viewers. He told Good Morning Britain back in May:
“There's little Arya going off on a cruise somewhere, poor Jon's gone back up north, beyond the Wall, and then there is Tyrion. And all the people left alive are sort of sat around the table going, 'So, well, what are we going to do now, shall we have a cup of tea or something?' And I thought, 'Ah, I don’t know.'”
Despite any hard feelings about Thrones, you'll be able to hear Dance bring another story to life when the six-part Rise of Empires: Ottoman debuts on Jan. 24.
