Michiel Huisman is returning to the gritty drama of HBO after working on ABC’s hit primetime soap Nashville as a bad boy music producer and love interest for the lead, Liam. He is possibly best known for his role in Treme, where he also played a musician. Fans of both shows will be excited to know that he will be moving to HBO’s Game of Thrones. His role has not been officially announced, but most fans who have read the books are already forming theories about who he will play. There are still members of the Tyrell or martell families. He could also be playing Symon Silver Tongue, a musician, since it would fit in with his prior roles.
There have been other actors cast on the show who’s roles have also not been confirmed yet, including Joseph Gatt and Mark Gatiss. Confirmed characters and actors are Pedro Pascal as The Red Viper, Indira Varma as the love interest of The Red Viper, Ellaria Sand, and Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Mace Tyrell. Even with those juicy roles taken it doesn’t mean that those who have not been announced wont be getting to have major parts. A Song of Ice and Fire is a huge universe, and there is still a lot to be done.
