Game of Thrones Season 3 Casts Mance Rayder, Daario Naharis and Grey Worm
The best and worst part about the wait in between seasons of Game of Thrones is the seemingly endless amount of casting that goes on. From the moment a season ends, a flurry of actors is cast to play brand new characters on the absolutely epic series. It’s great to have the show expand its roster, but it does become a little difficult to distinguish one character from another unless you are familiar with the book series. Recently we had three new roles cast: Mance Rayder, Daario Naharis and Grey Worm. As is usually the case with this type of news, some of these characters will get much more screen time than others, but they all are significant to the story.
Starting off with Mance, EW.com reported Rome’s Ciarán Hinds would be putting on the crown as the King Beyond the Wall. Mance is the self-proclaimed king of the Wildlings north of The Wall, uniting all the tribes. He has been mentioned throughout the show’s first two seasons, and when we last saw Jon Snow, he was being taken to meet with Mance. I won’t go into detail about Mance’s overall role from the books – don’t want to be a spoiler – but I can say he’s a very charming man for a Wildling and was a member of the Night’s Watch at some point.
EW also reported on relative newcomers Ed Skrein and Jacob Anderson as Daario and Grey Worm respectively. Daario is the charming, brutal captain of the mercenary company the Stormcrows who ends up under the command of Daenerys, while Grey Worm is the leader of the eunuch slave soldiers, the Unsullied. It is not surprising Game of Thrones is bringing in new blood – they did the same thing when casting for the other seasons. It gives young actors a once in a lifetime chance to do something truly incredible.
