He is an exceptionally good actor with quite an impressive CV, and he looks like Pope Francis which is perfect for the role of High Sparrow.
It seems to mean that the role of High Sparrow is going to be quite a big one in season 5.
Episode 1 or 2: The future High Sparrow meets Brienne and discusses the horrid state of affair in the Riverlands and why the Sparrows are going to King's Landing. This scene or scenes may be tied in to Brienne's pursuit of Arya, because Arya left from Saltpans as was clear in the show, so there are strong clues they might have Brienne arrive at Saltpans and think Arya is dead as in the books.
Episode 2 or 3: the High Sparrow has a rousing speech outside the Red Keep, talking to a bunch of very angry commoners and Sparrows flooding the city. Reminiscent of the Demon Monkey speech in season 2. He becomes High Septon.
Episode 4: The High Sparrow makes a deal with Cersei to legalize the Faith Militant.
Episode 5: Cersei's accusations against Margery are presented to the High Sparrow.
Episode 6: Cersei is arrested and berated by the High Sparrow.
Episode 7: Cersei is a captive of the Faith.
Episode 8: Cersei confesses, and finally gets visitors. Qyburn comes to see her.
Episode 9: Shame Walk
Episode 10: Preparations for the trials of Cersei and Margery may involve High Sparrow scenes.
And then there will be the trials and whatever the Faith Militant gets up to in Winds of Winter/Season 6.
