Hizdahr zo Loraq, the mysterious "young scion of an ancient Meereenese family," will be played by British actor Joel Fry in Game of Thrones, Season 4. His role, introduced originally in Books 4 and 5 of the Songs of Fire & Ice series, involves a crucial encounter with Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen. Fry previously appeared in 10,000 B.C.
As avid GoT viewers and readers know, Meereen is the largest of the great Slaver Cities of Slaver’s Bay. The other two prominent cities are Astapor (the place Dany formed her own army) and Yunkai (the population she liberated at the end of Season 3). In the upcoming fourth season, Meereen will come into its own as a key setting.
Fry's casting is the latest and likely final addition to the new season's lineup. Other new cast additions include Homeland's Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Rome actress Indira Varma as Ellaria Sand, Sherlock's Mark Gatiss as a Braavosi banker and, most curiously, Icelandic indie band Sigur Ros in an enigmatic role we're excited to see develop.
