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?

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