Michiel Huisman Promoted to Series Regular on Game of Thrones… Season 5

by at .  Updated at . Comments

As previously reported, Michiel Huisman will come on board Game of Thrones Season 4 as Daario, taking over the role from Ed Skrein.

But in a surprising casting announcement - the kind only a show with this sort of fan base can make - HBO has now confirmed that Huisman has been promoted to series regular.

For Game of Thrones Season 5.

Michiel Huisman on Nashville

This presumes, of course, that there actually will be a Game of Thrones Season 5. But come on.

The actor (Treme, Nashville, Orphan Black Season 2) will recur on the upcoming fourth season, which will premiere in either March or early April.

Until it does, watch Game of Thrones online at TV Fanatic to catch up on anything you may have missed.
