Like wood for the fire that somebody will probably die in, Game Of Thrones has added yet another new cast member to its upcoming fourth season: Joel Fry, the British actor perhaps best known from the film 10,000 B.C., set in that tranquil prehistoric age when humans were still safe from vicious predators like George R.R. Martin. Fry will star as Hizdahr zo Loraq, a name that no doubt doubles as the sound of the death rattle he’ll eventually make—though, as TV Line and some guy in the comments who’s read the books and will now tell you all about it are pointing out, it won’t be for a while. Hizdahr, the scion of the Meereeneese family, becomes a part of Daenerys’ life for a while, until all the life inevitably drains out of everyone, forming a sea of red, only red. So much red.
With that in mind, Kit Harington—who portrays Jon “Not Dead Yet” Snow—redundantly promised Access Hollywood (via /Film) that we will see “more deaths this season than any other!” in such a way that presumes we’re not familiar with Game Of Thrones or something. “I can’t tell you who dies. You’d think they’d tone the deaths down, but they don’t. They’ve realized that’s a successful option, so they’re just killing more people than we’ve ever killed,” Harington said gleefully, shortly before dying.
Have a super weekend. Don’t die.
