Hizdahr zo Loraq (Eff You, Name!) Cast for Game of Thrones Season 4
British actor Joel Fry (10,000 BC) has been cast in the role which, not to spoil anything, becomes very important to Daenerys down the line as she visits a city called Meereen. EW describes him as a “young scion of an ancient Meereenese family who crosses paths with Daenerys Targaryen.”
Another interesting aspect of this casting is that Hizdahr didn’t show up in the George R. R. Martin novels until A Dance with Dragons, which was the last book he wrote. Yes, the timelines of that book overlap with the one before it, A Feast for Crows, but for those of us worried about the show catching up to the books, casting a character from the fifth novel feels a bit distressing.
