David Bradley has joined the cast of the BBC's adaptation of "Les Miserables".

The 76-year-old actor - who is known for his roles as Walder Frey in "Game Of Thrones", and Argus Filch in the "Harry Potter" films - is set to be reunited with his former "Broadchurch" co-star Olivia Colman for the mini-series, which is based on Victor Hugo's novel.

According to The Sun's Bizarre TV column, David will play Monsieur Gillenormand in the programme.

The new six-part drama - which is being filmed in Belgium - will also see Dominic West take on one of the leading roles as Jean Valjean.

He recently said: "Jean Valjean is one of the great characters in world literature. His epic journey of redemption is one of the extraordinary roles an actor can take on, and I can't wait to get stuck in to bringing Andrew's brilliant adaptation to the screen."

It's believed the adaptation won't feature any of the classic songs like "I Dreamed A Dream", "Bring Him Home" or "On My Own" like the 2012 feature film starring Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway.

Screenwriter Andrew Davies recently revealed that he wanted to take the story back to the "original novel".

He shared: "With a striking intensity and relevance to us today, the novel is testimony to the struggles of France's underclass and how far they must go to survive.

"This is such an intense and gut-wrenching story and I am delighted that this esteemed ensemble of actors will be bringing it to life ..."
