'Game of Thrones' Season 3 Makes Its Next Big CastingKevin Fitzpatrick |
Even though it may seem like 'Game of Thrones' season 3 has already added m ore new faces than 10 episodes of condensed 'A Storm of Swords' storytelling can reasonably portray, some are bigger than others. That's why we were excited to see that Mance Rayder had finally been cast last week, and now 'Game of Thrones' season 3 has made another notable pick in casting its blue-bearded Daario Naharis, a brutal new mercenary who cozies up to Daenerys Targaryen! So, who nabbed the role?
According to Winter Is Coming, relative UK unkown Ed Skrein will take the key season 3 role of Daario Naharis, captain of the Stormcrow band of mercenaries that will find themselves in the employ of Daenerys Targaryen. Though he's said to be brutal yet charming, don't expect Skrein's look to stay the same, as Naharis is known for his flashy dress, and dyed-blue hair and beard braided into three points.
Skrein isn't the only name added to the roster of 'Game of Thrones' season 3 today, as the same source reports that young British actor Jacob Anderson has been cast in the role of Grey Worm, the leader of a group of eunuch slave soldiers called "The Unsullied."
Skrein and Anderson join the ranks of Ciaran Hinds, Diana Rigg, Mackenzie Crook, Clive Russell, Nathalie Emannuel, Iwan Rheon, Kerry Ingram, Tara Fitzgerald, Paul Kaye, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ellie Kendirck, Richard Dormer, Kristofer Hivju, Philip McGinley, Tobias Menzies and Anton Lesser, all of whom new additions for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3.
