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."
