ABC’s Body of Proof is adding a Dothraki bloodrider to its Season 3 roster.
Game of Thrones alum Elyes Gabel has been cast as smart, cocky Det. Adam Schaeffer on the ABC drama, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Proof showrunners Matthew Gross, Christopher Murphey and Evan Katz first alerted TVLine to the new roles just after series regulars Nicholas Bishop, John Carroll Lynch and Sonja Sohn were let go earlier this summer. Fringe’s Mark Valley filled the first spot: Det. Tommy Sullivan, a onetime love interest of Megan’s who transfers to Philadelphia to win her back.
The second addition, Gabel’s Adam, “is a guy who thinks that he knows it all,” Gross said at the time. “He’s wise beyond his years, but doesn’t have the experience to back it up. And he might get himself in some trouble along the way for running his mouth off.”
Gabel shouldn’t have any trouble working alongside Dana Delany’s strong-willed Megan Hunt: After all, the Game of Thrones alum spent a lot of time doing his khaleesi’s bidding as Rakharo, one of Daenerys’ loyal – though ill-fated – servants. He also recently appeared on Showtime’s The Borgias.Follow @kimroots
