“Game of Thrones” has cast it’s Red Viper for season 4. It will be played by actor Pedro Pascal, most recently of USA Network’s “Graceland.” HBO has confirmed that in season 4, fans will see Prince Oberyn Martell come to King’s Landing and become involved with members and associates of the Lannister family.
In case you aren’t up on your characters, Prince Oberyn had family members who were murdered and he is interested in vengeance. Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss told Entertainment Weekly, “This was a tough one,” of casting the part of Red Viper. They said,
“The Red Viper is sexy and charming, yet believably dangerous; intensely likable, yet driven by hate. The boys love him, the girls love him, and he loves them all back. Unless your last name is Lannister. We found a fellow who can handle the job description and make it seem effortless. He wasn’t easy to find and he won’t be easy to stop.”
“Game of Thrones” season 4 will return to HBO in 2014.
Do you think Pedro Pascal will make a good Red Viper?
