The game of recasting is going roundly on Game of Thrones.
After we recently learned that the role of young Prince Tommen Baratheon had been recast — the role was originally played by Callum Wharry and will now be played by Dean-Charles Chapman — now comes news that yet another character just got the recast treatment.
So who is it?
The Hollywood Reporter says that the role of Daario Naharis — the Tyroshi captain and Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke) new love interest who was introduced last season — is the one that's been recast.
Formerly portrayed by Ed Skrein (the pic below) in season three, the role has now gone to former HBO star Michiel Huisman (the pic above).
Huisman is a Dutch actor who played a musician dealing with drug and relationship problems on Treme and will now be the new man kicking some ass and vying for Dany’s heart in the fourth season of Game of Thrones, which is still currently filming. The actor also had a role on World War Z.
This is not the first time roles have been recast on Game of Thrones: Ser Gregor Clegane was played by Conan Stevens in season one and by Ian Whyte in season two (in what was rather a jarring recast); and Beric Dondarrion, who was played by extra David Michael Scott in season one, was portrayed by Richard Dormer in season three.
What do you guys think? Do you think Michiel Huisman will be a better Daario Naharys, or are you disappointed by the recast?
