The Royal Mail has unveiled a set of 15 first-class stamps featuring characters from the fantasy TV show, which will go on sale later this month.

And Rigg's character, Olenna Tyrell, is among the stars to feature in the collection.

The HBO series, based on the books by George RR Martin, is filmed principally in Northern Ireland and has a mainly British and Irish cast.

The stamps include "Mother of Dragons" Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).

Other characters to feature are Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance), Eddard Stark (Sean Bean), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

Five stamps include images of the Night King and the White Walkers, giants, direwolves and dragons, and the Iron Throne.
