May 20th, 2013 8:40pm EDT
Game Of Thrones star Carice Van Houten has been cast as silver screen icon Greta Garbo in a new movie.
The Dutch actress, who portrays Melisandre in Game of Thrones, will study the Swedish movie star for the as-yet-untitled biopic, which will chronicle the film legend's humble beginnings as shopgirl in Stockholm to her heyday as one of the world's most enigmatic beauties.
Van Houten, who will also produce the project, tells Screendaily.com, "I was raised with silent films. I have always maintained an endless fascination for that era. Greta Garbo has gotten to me more than any other movie star and never let me go. I am strongly drawn to her story, her art, her loneliness and her beautiful complex structure."
