Game of Thrones Season 4: The Red Viper Cast!

by at . Comments

We may not be heading back to the Seven Kingdoms any time soon, but HBO has cast the first major role on Game of Thrones Season 4.

Pedro Pascal - who has appeared on episode of Red Widow, Graceland and The Good Wife - will come on board next year as The Red Viper, the cunning Prince of Dorne who has a score to settle in the Westeros capital:

His sister was among those murdered when Mad King Aerys was overthrown by Robert Baratheon and the Lannisters.

New GoT Actor

David Benioff and Dan Weiss told Entertainment Weekly that casting the role was "tough" because the prince is sexy and charming… but also dangerous and inspired by hate.

In a fun tease for future episodes, the creators added of The Red Viper:

"He wasn’t easy to find and he won’t be easy to stop.”
