'Game of Thrones' season 4 has been the subject of a number of surprise re-castings, but it seems one of the major season 4 roles had been reported wrong entirely. Where a Maltese publication previously presumed 'Banshee' star Joseph Gatt had been cast in the Wildling role of Styr, Magnar of Thenn, it has now been confirmed that Russian actor Yuri Kolokolnikov will instead take the role.
Though character names and actors may prove inherently meaningless to 'Game of Thrones' fans unfamiliar with George R.R. Martin's writing, the fourth season of HBO has just made a huge addition to its cast, both literally and figuratively. Cinemax's 'Banshee' star Joseph Gatt has reportedly joined 'Game of Thrones' season 4 in a major literary role as Styr, Magnar of Thenn, but how much of the character will be changed?
