‘Game of Thrones’ Season 3: Two Major New Characters
'Game of Thrones' makes for one of our favorite and least favorite series on TV these days, given how long news takes to emerge and how worth the wait each season eventually feels. Filming continues abroad in preparation of a March 31 debut, but there's little hiding from set photos, particularly when fans want a glimpse of new characters! So who's ready to meet Daario Naharis and Missandei, two major new faces from 'Game of Thrones' season 3?
The wait for 'Game of Thrones' season 3 feels ever longer with each passing day, but we make do when set pictures and candids emerge from production. The latest looks from the Morocco set (courtesy of actor Rickard Nordstrand's Twitter account) not only bring us more looks at Daenerys Targaryen and Ser Jorah Mormont, but also new characters Daario Naharis (Ed Skrein) and Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel)!
For those unfamiliar with the characters, Captain Daario Naharis and his band of mercenaries (the Stormcrows) will find themselves in the employ of Daenerys Targaryen in season 3. As predicted, however, HBO's adaptation seems to have eschewed the book character's flashy dress, dyed-blue hair and beard braided into three points. Missandei acts as Daenerys' servant and translator in these affairs.
Check out the brand new photos below, and tell us if you feel cheated by the character's new look in the comments! What 'Song of Ice and Fire' aspects do you hope make it into 'Game of Thrones' season 3?
