Game of Thrones Season 4: Which New Cast Member is Already a Season 5 Regular?
HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones‘ has shown outrageously little in the way of its coming fourth season, between the brief 2014 trailer snippets and photos of our new Mountain, but there’s at least one image we should get used to seeing. Guess which new (ish) cast member for season 4 has already been upped to series regular for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5!
While this may not surprise fans of George R.R. Martin‘s literary ‘Game of Thrones,’ new cast addition Michiel Huisman has officially been upped to series regular for the fifth season of the breakout fantasy drama, likely set to bow in spring 2015. Also starring in the coming season of ‘Orphan Black,’ Huisman was earlier reported to join ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 in the existing role of Daenerys’ dreamy-eyed swordsman Daario Naharis, portrayed in season 3 by Ed Skrein.
While we wait for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4, HBO has cast in known roles Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Indira Varma as Oberyn’s lover Ellaria Sand, Yuri Kolokolnikov as Styr, Magnar of Thenn, and ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris. Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from Ian Whyte, among other recastings.
Well, what do we think? Do you wish Ed Skrein had remained in the role of Daario for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4? Is it better to have Huisman promoted for consistency through season 5? Give us your ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 wishlist in the comments, while we await an official premiere!
