Game of Thrones - Season 3 - Is Asim Ahmad Thoros of Myr? [Rumor]

A rumor going ground for a couple days now is that Asir Ahmad has been cast as Thoros of Myr.

Asim Ahmad has been in movies such as The Dark Knight, Inception and recently performed as a supporting character in the movie S.W.A.T.: Fire Fight. He has performed in the West End in the Lord of the Rings stage show as the role of Boromir. He has also performed with the RSC, playing roles such as Mercutio in Romero and Juliet, and Prospero in The Tempest.

There is no confirmation from HBO and sources are a bit vague and inconclusive.

The first is this comment from about a friend whose boyfriend got the job.

The second source being 2 tweets from Ahmad himself.

Assuming he met Emilia Clarke when picking up his scripts during the pre-production meetings at the end of June it could very well mean he is our Red Priest of Myr! His CV informs us he has sword fighting experience as well as stunt work experience and he has a good look for a Priest o Myr (albeit younger than I expected). Perhaps Asim Ahmad is going from playing Boromir to Thor'o'Myr....

I update it regularly.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
