Iain Glen, the actor most famously known for playing Ser Jorah Mormont in popular television series Game of Thrones (GoT), was spotted at the popular Beluga Restuarant last night. It is unknown whether he is here to film a new project, or just enjoying Cape Town’s sights and sounds.
Rumour has it, the actor may be in town to shoot the remake of Black Beauty, expected to be released in 2020. Glen will star alongside Kate Winslet and Mackenzie Foy.
Glen has been spotted in the Mother City before, living here temporarily during the filming of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in 2015, where he played the film series’ villain Dr Alexander Isaacs/Tyrant.
