Two Israeli actors will appear in the upcoming sixth season of the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones.”

It has been reported that Ania Bukstein and and Yousef Sweid will be cast in the upcoming episodes, although it is unclear what roles they will play as they were required to sign a confidentiality waver, said Israel's Channel 10. 

Bukstein, 33, is a household name in Israel for roles in shows and movies such as “Rabies,” “False Flag” and “The Secrets.” Sweid, 39, an Arab-Israeli, is known for parts in shows like “Homeland” and plays like “Walk on Water.”

The sixth season of “Game of Thrones,” based on the fantasy book series by George R. R. Martin, will air in April 2016.
