Filming of the upcoming seventh sequel to George Lucas' "Star Wars" saga was forced to be put on hold following Harrison Ford's (Hans Solo) injury from an accident at Pinewood. Now recent news pointed out that J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars Episode 7" has already resumed its production and is expected to wrap up later this year.

The "Indiana Jones" actor broke his leg in an on-set accident when a hydraulic door fell in. The 72-year-old Ford underwent surgery and then entered to a rehabilitation program. He was recently spotted at the "Expendables 3" movie premiere in Los Angeles.

With regards to the latest casting rumors, BBC News reported that actor Miltos Yerolemou, who is best known for his recurring role as the charismatic swordmaster Syrio Forel in the political/fantasy drama "Game of Thrones" will be joining the cast of "Star Wars Episode VII."

Looks like his expertise with the broadsword will once again be put to good use now that he will be more likely to wield a light sabre, the iconic hand-held weapon of the Star Wars universe.

According to the British press, though his character hasn't been revealed yet, Yeromelou isn't expected to play a major role.

If this BBC report is to be taken as a fact, the Greek-Cypriot and London-based actor will be the latest "Game of Thrones" member to join the Star Wars cast following the already confirmed involvement of Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth in GOT.

LucasFilm, Walt Disney Pictures, as well as Bad Robot Productions still haven't given an official statement with regards to Yeromelou's purported casting.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" is slated to arrive in cinemas in December 2015.
