British actor Joel Fry (“Tamara Drewe,” “Svengali”) has scored the key role of Hizadahr zo Loraq in the upcoming fourth season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones”.
In the series, Hizadahr is the young scion of an ancient family in Meereen, the last of the three key cities of Slaver’s Bay. The Daenerys Targaryen storyline dealt with the other two cities, Astapor and Yunkai, in the third season.
Much of Daenerys’ storyline in this fourth season will revolve around Meereen, where she encounters Hizadahr. The new season kicks off next Spring on HBO.
An interesting twist is that the character doesn’t appear in the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ novels until the fifth book “A Dance of Dragons,” whereas this fourth season will focus primarily on the second half of the third book “A Storm of Swords”.
