The former Game of Thrones star has been cast as Agent Ross in the episode The Hood Maker, part of the anthology series Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams.

Grainger, who also worked with Madden on the BBC film adaptation of Lady Chatterly's Lover, will portray the character Honor. The story is set in a world without advanced technology, where people have to rely on mutant telepaths for long distance communication, reports Variety.com.

The show will feature 10 standalone episodes, with other previously-announced castmembers including Timothy Spall, Anna Paquin, Terence Howard, Steve Buscemi, and Bryan Cranston, who also serves as an executive producer on the series.

Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams will air later this year (17) on Channel 4 in the U.K. and on Amazon's streaming service in the U.S.
