From reality TV to Westeros!

Game of Thrones' sixth season just got a little more handsome, as E! News has confirmed that unREAL star Freddie Stroma is set to join the HBO fantasy hit. And fans are definitely going to freak out when they find out who he is playing.

Stroma is set to take on the role of Dickon Tarly—Samwell's (John Bradley) brother! As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Dickon is Sam's younger and physically more capable brother, who was their father's favorite, even forcing Sam to join the Night's Watch so that Dickon could be his heir. Hey, it beat the other option: death. 

Hey, it might be an awkward family reunion, but we're excited to learn more about the Tarlys, especially since we don't get a whole lot of information on them in George R.R. Martin's books. 

Stroma recently wooed audiences as Adam, the dashing and devious suitor at the center of the reality dating show-within-the-show on Lifetime's unREAL, and also made memorable appearances in the Harry Potter films as Cormac McLaggen.

At least fans still mourning the death of (Insert Mandatory Spoiler Warning Here!) Jon Snow (Kit Harington) can take comfort in knowing we have Stroma's handsome face to help soften the devastating loss.

Also set to join GOT in season six? Ian McShane will make his debut in a mystery role, while Max von Sydow will take over the role of the Three-Eyed Raven.

Game of Thrones will return on HBO in spring 2016.
