According to, which first reported the casting, Hizdahr is the young heir of a well-established Meereenese family.

To avoid spoiling The Unsullied among you, this is all we’ll say of Fry’s character (at least, based on the books): He shows up in A Dance With Dragons, the fifth installment in the series of novels on which Thrones is based, and he figures prominently in Khaleesi’s life for a good chunk of time.

  2. nabocane says:

    Pulling Emilia Clarke was more impressive than anything else Seth MacFarlane has done.

  3. Whitewalker says:

    The Khaleesi is jumping ahead three books into the future, just like Theon did with last year’s plot

    • Erika says:

      Well… Books 4 and 5 happen roughly concurrently… and Theon’s initial torture isn’t as detailed in the books, really only the aftermath… so I think they’re try to make everything fit chronologically, so that they can keep the whole cast working all the way through.

  4. Lili says:

    YAY! Seems like the show will FINALLY become “Game of ThroneS”, instead of “Game of Only One Throne”. Forget the Red Wedding! Season 4 will turn Westeros upside down – and everybody will love it.

  5. Mary Ann says:

    I look forward to anything Daenerys does! She is one of my favorite characters. If she married Tyrion it would be awesome. (I have not read the books.)

  6. Alan says:

    hizdahr is showing up a bit early, isnt he? if they are pushing danys story ahead but no the rest whats going to happen when they finally do get around to doing the rest of dance with dragons?

    • tsevca says:

      he probably will be there during daenerys coming to mereen and negotiating. in books, he can be someone among the crowd, but in tv show it´d be weird if he suddenly surfaced after daenerys wins.
