Best known for his roles in Love My Way and The Slap, the actor appeared fleetingly in episode three of the current season.
Brendan appeared in a key scene that saw Alfie Allen's character, Theon Greyjoy, rescued from the ocean and hoisted onto Harrag's battle ship.
He perfectly fit the casting call description that went out last August.
'Warrior, in the 35 – 45 age range,' it read. 'The character is a tough-looking bruiser with the attack skills of a pit bull, and the actor needs to be great at fighting.'
