    I would've thought he's too young for Martyll but it wouldn't be the first time they've changed a character's age. If it is a recast, then he does seem a likely candidate.

    Supposedly he is replacing the actor Ed Skrein as the sellsword Daario Naharis.

    The previous actor didn't make much of an impression on me so I'm fine with that. It's not like they're recasting anybody vital like Jaime or Sansa :drool:.

    :D

    Interesting. Speaking of actor switch-overs, does anyone know if the original actor who played Gregor Clegayne is coming back for S4?

    I'd really hope so, otherwise the Oberyn duel will be shitty.

    Agreed. He was a much better Mountain.

    I think Conan Stevens was busy with The Hobbit during filming for Season Two, so hopefully now that that's over with he'll return as the Mountain.

    Stevens had a falling out of some sort with the producers, so he won't be back. The new Mountain is one of their VFX guys (he "plays" the White Walkers whenever they appear).

    I'm still holding out for a Mance Rayder recast.

    A (relatively) big name like Hinds, who has a history with HBO and the people who make the show, is rather unlikely to be going anywhere. And I doubt a different actor would make a difference there.

    Big fellow. Wonder what they'll do about the accent and/or age difference with Rory McCann?

    I don't know about the accent, but I doubt the age difference will be a concern; he's going to have, what, one or two scenes, probably? And the longest of those will be in full plate armour.

    IIRC, Gregor wasn't much of a talker. Should be okay.

    Okay, if this guy is around Belfast, I'm guessing he's going to be easy for me to spot/stalk. I'm just afraid of him already...
