‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 Photos: Old Favorites Return, Plus New Daario and More!
By the old gods and the new, they’re finally here! HBO may not be airing much programming this Sunday opposite the Super Bowl, but why should that stop a fresh look at ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 4? Fifteen brand-spanking-new photos have arrived, offering up new looks at the returning characters, as well as our first glimpse of the new Daario Naharis, and the Red Viper’s lovely lady, Ellaria Sand!
Naturally we’ve seen most of the characters in costume before, but we also get a closer look at Jaime Lannister’s new duds (and hand!) in conversation with Cersei, as well as Tyrion, Sansa and Shae making the best of their awkward marriage and servitude. Most excitingly of all, however, we see ‘Treme’ star Michiel Huisman debuting as Daario Naharis (still no blue beard, boo!) after replacing Ed Skrein in the role, along with ‘Rome’ star Indira Varma as Prince Oberyn Martell’s wife Ellaria Sand.
While we wait for ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4, HBO has cast in known roles Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq, Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell, Pedro Pascal as Prince Oberyn Martell, Yuri Kolokolnikov as Styr, Magnar of Thenn, and ‘Sherlock’ star Mark Gatiss as Tycho Nestoris. Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will take over the role of Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane from Ian Whyte, among other recastings.
We’ll also go behind the scenes of the new season with ‘Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing‘ on February 9, but in the meantime, feast your eyes on new ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 photos below, and give us your thoughts in the comments!
