‘Game of Thrones’ Finds Dany’s Meereen Nemesis

EW has revealed that Game of Thrones will be introducing Joel Fry as Hizdahr zo Loraq, a noble Meereen set to cause trouble for Dany in season four. Meereen is the last of the large slaver cities that Dany needs to conquer, but book fans will note that Hizdahr zo Loraq doesn’t appear in the books until book five A Dance with Dragons. EW reports that Hizdahr zo Loraq is described as a “young scion of an ancient Meereenese family who crosses paths with Daenerys Targaryen.” Does that mean Dany’s story will be speeding up as the series heads into season four?

British actor Joel Fry’s previous credits include Plebs and Twenty Twelve.

Game of Thrones season four begins Spring 2014.
