Meet Staz Nair, the model and 'X Factor' singer who just became a secret new 'Game of Thrones' cast member

Model, actor, and singer Staz Nair has joined the sixth season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” an HBO representative confirmed to Business Insider.

The pay cable network wouldn’t reveal any information on Nair’s character, though.

So what’s the deal with Nair?

He will be part of the scenes shot in Spain for Season 6, which returns in Spring 2015.

In the mean time, here’s more about him. He’s a Gemini, singer, model and self-proclaimed nice person.

Apparently, the news of his casting was broken in September in a press release for a film Nair stars in titled 'Bazodee.' It's directed by Todd Kessler, the co-creator of Nickelodeon's 'Blue's Clues.' Nair plays a man whose fiancee is falling in love with another man. Watch the trailer below.

Clearly a man of many talents, Nair competed as part of a boy band called Times Red on UK's 'X Factor' in 2012. During that time he was very fond of showing off his abs. Who can blame him?

Watch a performance below:

The bulk of Nair's work seems to be in modelling. Here's an example of his talent in that arena (care of agency Boss Model Management UK):

Currently, he's being represented by Storm Models. His favourite thing about being a model is travelling. Here's more about him in his model Q&A.
