‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4: ‘10,000 B.C.’ Star Joel Fry Joins in Key Book 5 Role

Game of Thrones Season 4 Joel Fry Hizdahr zo Loraq

Game of Thrones‘ season 4 looks to be continuing the trends of previous season in adapting more and more of creator George R.R. Martin‘s work out of place. Despite covering a period roughly midway through Martin’s third book ‘A Storm of Swords,’ the HBO fantasy drama has added UK actor Joel Fry in a key role from Martin’s fifth book as Hizdahr zo Loraq.

First appearing in Martin’s book “A Dance with Dragons, Fry’s role of Hizdahr zo Loraq will emerge in season 4 as a “young scion of an ancient Meereenese family who crosses paths with Daenerys Targaryen,” per Entertainment Weekly. ‘Game of Thrones’ lore tells us that Dany will next look to liberate the slaver city of Mereen, having reached Yunkai in season 3 finale “Mhysa,” after obtaining her army in Astapor.

While we wait for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4, HBO has cast in other known roles Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, Indira Varma as Oberyn’s lover Ellaria Sand, and ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris. ‘Banshee‘ star Joseph Gatt will appear in a role speculated to be that of Wildling chieftan Styr, Magnar of Thenn, while ‘Treme”s Michiel Huisman will replace Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis, and Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from Ian Whyte, among other recastings. Previous season characters Lysa Arryn (Kate Dickie), Ser Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale), Rorge (Andy Beckwith) and Janos Slynt (Dominic Carter) will likely all return, among others.

‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 won’t take flight until spring 2014, but tell us in the meantime what characters you’re most excited to see brought to life!
