Roger Ashton-Griffths is a British actor that was cast as Lord Mace Tyrell, debuting in Season 4.[1]

He graduated from Lancaster University (BMus), and began his career as a singer with English National Opera at the London Coliseum.

On his character, Mace Tyrell, Ashton Griffiths says: "Well, Mace is described variably by others as an oaf; the Lord of Oaf. However, in my view he's rather a wise old cookie, and is just bumbling along."[2]
