AccessHollywood broke the news many have been waiting for.... There will be a Pod cast! (Sorry for the bad pun)
Peter Dinklage is getting some help as his “Game of Thrones” character, Tyrion Lannister, heads to King’s Landing for Season 2.
Access Hollywood can exclusively reveal that actor Daniel Portman has been cast as Tyrion’s squire, Podrick Payne.
Podrick is actually in the first book in author George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, but was not shown in Season 1 of the HBO series.
The third casting announcement today is Pyat Pree will be played by Ian Hanmore.
HBO’s slowly doling out a few new casting notes, which is always exciting! This time around, we’ve got a look at another Qartheen character to join Nonso Anozi in that part of Daenerys’s story on the continent of Essos: actor Ian Hanmore will play Pyat Pree (HBO writes Pyatt, which may be the official spelling for the series, but we’ll go with his book spelling). Pyat Pree is one of the warlocks of Qarth, who legend claims wield great powers thanks to a sorcerous potion they drink called the shade of the evening.
