British actor Joel Fry has joined the cast of HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones.
Fry, whose resume is full of primarily British TV series like Trollied, Plebs, and White Van Man, will play a character named Hizdahr zo Loraq, described by the GOT wiki as:
Fourteenth of That Noble Name, is a Ghiscari noble of the city of Meereen. He is extremely wealthy and can trace his descent from several notable Ghiscari citizens such as Mazdhan the Magnificent, Hazrak the Handsome and Zharaq the Liberator. Hizdahr is tall and slender with flawless amber skin. His red black Ghiscari hair is shaped into wings but he eventually shaves them off to please Daenerys Targaryen.
Apparently, Meereen is a slaving colony, and it looks like Hizdahr and Daenerys Targaryen tangle at some point.
Currently in production, the fourth season of Game of Thrones also counts Pedro Pascal, Indira Varma, Mark Gatis and the members of Icelandic rock band Sigur Ros, as new cast members.
Stateside, Fry appeared on the big screen in Roland Emmerich’s prehistoric epic adventure movie 10,000 B.C. in 2008. His new role in Game Of Thrones should help further raise awareness of the actor in the USA.
