Get ready to meet Samwell Tarly's hot brother, Game of Thrones fans!

Buzzfeed reports that Freddie Stroma, who most recently played Adam Cromwell on Lifetime's surprise summer hit UnREAL, has been cast as Dickon Tarly in the upcoming sixth season of GoT. In George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Dickon is mentioned but never seen (so far). But we do know that Sam's father, Lord Randyll Tarly, chose to make his younger son the family heir because he felt that Sam (John Bradley) was unworthy.

While Sam is super sweet, we can't argue with Stroma's, erm, worthiness.

Previous to UnREAL, Stroma appeared in Pitch Perfect and played quidditch captain Cormac McLaggen in the Harry Potter films, where he showed off his very important ice cream eating skills.

Welcome to Westeros, Freddie! Here's hoping you get at least one sexposition scene before you die a presumably horrible death.
