Julia Louis-Dreyfus posts photo with Game of Thrones actor
HBO worlds collide! Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus posted a photo with Game of Thrones actor Kristofer Hivju, who plays the fearsome Wildling Tormund Giantsbane on the hit drama (notice she’s wearing a snug beanie because winter is coming).
The duo appear together in the upcoming movie Downhill and Louis-Dreyfus notes “he’s hilarious.”
Downhill also stars Will Ferrell and is the English-language remake of Ruben Östlund’s film Force Majeure, about a couple’s marital tension that results after their family is trapped by an avalanche and the husband (Ferrell) prioritizes his escape over his family’s safety.
Hivju’s Game of Thrones character was last seen manning the wall during an avalanche of sorts in the season 7 finale. The drama returns April 14 for its final season, while Veep returns for its seventh and final season this spring.
