Michiel Huisman Lands Role Of Daario
It’s unknown why Skrein will no longer inhabit the role of Daario, but trailers for Game of Thrones Season 4 show Huisman in the part and looking quite different that his predecessor. Skrein, with his devilish smile and long golden hair, played Daario as a flamboyant and passionate man, as well as an impossibly skilled assassin. In shots of the dark, curly-haired Huisman in the part, it looks like Daario is going to be even more toned down than the blue-haired version in the books for the foreseeable future.
Huisman, who stars as Liam McGuinnis on Nashville, is set to play a major part in the fourth season of Game of Thrones and to return for the HBO series’ fifth season as well. Alongside »

This isn’t much of a spoiler, but we might as well label it as so just in case you’re on total lockdown from any information regarding Game of Thrones’ upcoming fourth season. While his role has been known for a while, there are aspects of Haftor Julius Bjornnson’s casting that hint at things to come. You wouldn’t be able to guess what Season 4 has in store for him, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be spoiled to the fact there is something coming that will involve him. So if you can, close your eyes so you don’t see Bjornsson all done up in costume as The Mountain.

Note: Gregor Clegane is a notoriously awful person and will not likely have such a nice smile in "Game of Thrones."
