After last week’s casting of Mance Rayder, we thought perhaps there weren’t anymore characters left in season 3 who had not yet been cast.
Ah, but how wrong we were.
EW reports that two more characters have been cast, both focusing on the Daenery part of the story:
Ed Skrein has been cast as Daario Naharis, leader of the Stormcrows who is initially contracted to defend Yunkai from Daenerys, but ends up coming over to her side. He is supposed to be exceedingly handsome and terribly dashing.
Skrein is a newcomer without much on his IMdB page.
Jacob Anderson has been cast as Grey Worm, the leader of the Unsullied, a group of fierce eunuch warriors that Daenerys purchases for her war to regain the Iron Throne. For anyone who has read Storm of Swords, you must be very anxious to see the Unsullied in action.
Are we done yet? Probably not as one of the major characters to develop in this upcoming season, Ramsay Bolton, or the Bastard, hasn’t been announced. I vaguely recall that at one point Sebastian Stan (Captain America‘s Bucky Barnes) had been cast in the role, but that doesn’t seem to be case at this point.
They just need to finish casting and start filming already. April 2013, like winter, is coming…
