First Official Look At The Khaleesi's New Boy Toy In 'Game Of Thrones' Is Enough To Turn Your Facial Hair Blue

By Joanna Robinson | Miscellaneous | January 30, 2014 | Comments ()


Here’s the first official look at Michiel Huisman as Daario Naharis 2.0 in Game of Thrones. Up until now we’ve been squinting at blurry set photos so this is a nice, clear look at the scruff.


I like it. It’s no blue beard, but it’ll do quite nicely. Bear in mind that when Huisman is not busy turning the head of our favorite Mother of Dragons, he’ll also be featured on Orphan Black this season. Good, because he needs to get his Dutch ass off Nashville, stat. LEAVE SCARLETT ALONE, YOU MONSTER. Go torment some other flaxen-haired maiden.

As ever, our condolences Jorah.


In addition, here are 14 new images from season four, including our first official look at the Red Viper.

Whelp, 'A Million Ways To Die In The West' Just Shot To The Top Of My 'Must See' List | Today I Learned that Unmarried Poor Women Should Stop Having Sex, and That HBO Needs More Erect Penises

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned

  • Michiel Huisman is my new flavor of the month.

  • Maddy

    Is it just me or is show Jorah way hotter than show Daario? Come on Dany. Look at his poor face.

  • DominaNefret

    I liked Daario 1.0 because I thought he was hilarious and he made me giggle every time he was on screen; it was rather refreshing to be able to giggle while watching GoT.

  • Maddy

    I didn't really understand the hate. Yes he was ridiculous, but Daario is supposed to be ridiculous. This dude just looks like a bland warrior dude no 3.

  • John G.

    which one is the red viper in these pics?

  • manting

    Its the one with the male character that hasnt appeared yet.

  • e jerry powell

    Tasty, but my facial hair will only turn gray anymore.

  • $3150730

    Does anyone know why they replaced actors? And also why they didn't even try to cast a similar looking actor? The difference is quite jarring.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I actually think that it would have been a good idea to give Daario 2.0 his ridiculous blue beard. It would have detracted people from the change in actors.

  • stella

    Omg can Sansa and Tyrion just be best friends who pull pranks? Please? I just want her to smile...

  • Maddy

    The fact that his family murdered hers kind of makes that difficult. But I actually really liked their cute scene in the finale episode. If all this bullshit wasn't in the way, they could actually be awesome friends. But then that bullshit is kind of the point.

  • PerpetualIntern

    Whither Jaime?

    EDIT: Redacted. Is that him in the photo with Cersei?

  • janetfaust

    I think it is him, it looks like his right hand is metal, but it doesn't look like gold to me. ETA: I just looked at the bigger version and it's gold.

  • Maddy

    The Hound looks like he's texting on his phone ignoring Arya. What is he even holding? But Jaime's golden hand. YES.

  • Bert_McGurt

    I think it's a coin purse.

  • vic

    I briefly thought Tywin had a Mockingjay pin there.

    But my GOD, I cannot wait for this season to start. Just knowing what they're covering has me so idiotically excited. It's rare for a TV show where knowing what's going to happen has you dying to watch.

  • Maddy

    It's almost insane how much awesome stuff happens in the back half of Storm of Swords.

  • Maddy

    I get not going with the full looks from the books because that would have been ridiculous. I kind of wanted the blue hair though.

  • Maddy

    Dany just doing a cape swish. As you do when you're Mother of Dragons I guess.

  • foolsage

    Nah, her arms are folded. You can't do a proper swish without extending an arm a bit (it's the upper arm that adds the swishing movement). So that was just the wind, that time.

  • Mrs. Julien

    She is looks peeved at the insubordination of her cloak for encouraging a swish and/or twirl while she is trying to look regal.

  • foolsage

    Having looked more closely, it was clearly a very windy day. The second shot of Dany shows both sides of her cloak turned inside-out (and her side tresses have blown loose). So in that first shot she seems to have been trying to hold her cloak on, looking mildly put out at the recalcitrant fabric.

  • Mrs. Julien

    All day long it's swish and incinerate, swish and incinerate...

  • Maddy

    Joffrey's crazy psycho eyes make me so happy. And I want to give Sansa a hug.

  • Ah, Jon Snow, you're looking very Jon Snow-y.

  • luthien26

    It could be the Jon Snowiest he's ever looked!

  • Mrs. Julien

    Every time...

  • ironypants

    Joanna! Your Nashville intel is way off! Huisman was sexing up Connie Britton, (who is the best), not Scarlett, (who is the worst) and no one wants him to leave Connie alone because they are super hot together.

    Man I wish you guys would talk about Nashville so I'm not the only person who cares about this.

  • emilya

    it took me a full minute of staring at the header picture before saying "oh it's liam. duh self."

  • ironypants

    I love that hair and beard-wise he looks exactly the same. Modern day hipster record producer = sexy medieval mercenary. same diff.

  • emilya

    they need to find a way to work in liam's extensive hat collection. maybe instead of a helmet or something?

  • JoannaRobinson

    No way I watched it last night and he gave Scarlett speed. SPEEEEEEED. AND NOW SHE'S GOING TO BE ENTRAPPED IN A SPEED/ADDICTION PLOT.

  • Somehow, when I imagine Scarlett on speed, it's more Jessie Spano on caffeine pills than anything else. Albeit Jessie Spano dressed in her grandmother's kitchen curtains, but still.

  • stella

    Will it be like that SVH book in which Regina Marrow did cocaine one time and died?

  • Bert_McGurt

    Those Speed plots are just the WORST.

  • ironypants

  • io

    Bring on the Sand Snakes!

  • manting

    The lack of a widow's peak is troubling though. It was a key feature.

  • Maddy

    I really don't care about this because this actor just seems so charismatic and awesome. I've never been someone who cares that much about them exactly matching the book descriptions though. I'm totally cool with Iain Glenn being way too attractive to be book book Jorah.

  • Target_Blonde

    Sorry, I had a moment there.

  • manting

    He is one of the best characters and I cant wait to see the Red Viper do battle.

  • Maddy

    Never apologise for being excited about the Red Viper. Oberyn and Ellaria both look awesome. I love the costuming (and I'm not always crazy about the costumes on this show)

  • foolsage

    S'all good. I think I detect a little enthusiasm... :D

  • Protoguy

    The hand. No, not that Hand, Jaime's.

  • Erin S

    Tyrion and Sansa as buddies make me really happy. And sad. But also happy.

  • Maddy

    Me too. I always felt like they could have at least been friends given time in the books. Show Tyrion is definitely nicer than book Tyrion, but I almost don't mind because at least someone is being nice to Sansa. Poor darling.

  • DarthCorleone

    This Daario recasting is going to confuse a lot of non-book-reading viewers. One of those voiceovers from the old days of soap operas might help: "The part of Daario is now being played by..."

  • BWeaves

    They've already recast several parts. There's so many characters that I can't remember who is who even when it's the same actor. That's why I like watching on DVD. English subtitles for the hearing impaired are a must for me. It helps me catch everyone's name and who's saying what to who.

  • $3150730

    They've recast several parts, but this is the only part where both actors don't look anything alike. Replacing the original tall, blond actor with this guy is almost like replacing the mountain with Jonah Hill. It's bound to confuse some people.

  • Maddy

    This is definitely the most 'obvious' recasting.

  • manting

    or you could read the books, as good as the show is the books are better.

  • BWeaves

    Done. But there are still so many characters and it's hard to know who's who in the books, too, all the time. Plus they've combined characters or given someone else another's storyline.

  • Monica

    Thoughts on if they are going to explain it or not?

  • Protoguy

    He doesn't look very skilled in the arts of war.

  • janetfaust

    Not sure what was wrong with Daario 1.0. Scheduling conflicts? General hatred of the casting from fans? I don't remember hating him.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I believe he quit because he just wanted to express himself artistically by making music. Or something. Doesn't speak for his intelligence. You first take the money and then proceed to fail as a musician.

  • emmalita

    Ha! Just saw a bumper sticker that said, rape and pillage first, and THEN burn.

  • Maddy

    I assume there were scheduling issues. I didn't hate him, but then I hate book Daario so I didn't care that much.

  • Protoguy

    I disliked him intensely. He looked like a bad Fabio knockoff and acted about as well.

  • janetfaust

    Bad Fabio knockoff, yeah, I see that.

  • emmalita

    I am ok with Jorah in the friend zone.

  • And a part of me wants to make that phrase the most f-ed up Clue solution ever:

    Jorah in the Friend Zone with the Fleshlight

  • manting

    ewww. Or humping a bean and bacon pie made with a sharp Dornish red.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Blue beard?

    ETA: A Wiki of Ice and Fire tells me He keeps his beard cut in three prongs, all dyed blue. His eyes are blue and his curly hair is dyed blue. His mustachios are painted gold and he has a large, curving nose.

    I don't want to hear one more derogatory word about Outlander.
