The Real Reason These Game Of Thrones Roles Were Recast

Some of the most familiar faces in Westeros have changed a lot during the course of Game of Thrones’ run on HBO. Over the course of the series, several of the show’s key actors have ended up being replaced – leading fans to wonder just what really happened.

Throughout the entire series, Emilia Clarke has shined as Daenerys Targaryen. From a mild young bride to the fierce and ruthless warrior she is today, Daenerys has been through one of the show’s most exciting arcs, and without Clarke’s portrayal, far fewer viewers would have fallen in love with the character the way that they have. Hailed as a feminist icon, fans have been gripped by Daenerys’ finest moments, and Clarke herself has achieved international recognition for the role – as well as nominations for several awards.

With that in mind, it might seem difficult to believe that anyone else could ever have played Daenerys, but in the initially troubled pilot for Game of Thrones, Daenerys was originally played by Tamzin Merchant – best known for her role as Henry VIII’s fifth wife Catherine Howard on The Tudors. Creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have been open about their disdain for the original pilot, but neither the two showrunners nor casting director Nina Gould have fully discussed the reason for Merchant’s exit. Today, fans are left to wonder just how different the series might have been with a different Daenerys riding those dragons.

  1. Since the role of Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis has been replaced by Michiel Huissman… The character from Daario Naharis has changed… I prefer when Ed Skrein plays the role of Daario Naharis

  2. Is it just me, or has Looper videos fallen a lot in quality? Been a while since I've actually watched any, but this popped up my in recommendations and figured "sure…"
    But damn, this video basically doesnt cover its own title even a little, and 95% of the vid is a recap of who the character was. 5 mill subs, I guess they do appeal to some people….

  3. Why did I read this as “the real reason these game of thrones roles were racist”?

    Man…2019 is getting to my head. Can it be 2020 now?

  4. The recast of Daario was awful. The first Daario was kinda exotic and flamboyant like he's supposed to be, but the new one just looked and felt like an average westeros guy

  5. Since when is Dany a warrior? And Chapmsb played a Lannister relative not saire. Posers. This channel is dog shit.

  6. Seriously. Why were they recast. We know all this. WHY. That's what you were supposed to tell us you useless piece of garbage.

  7. Wait, he was nearly felled by a poisoned spear? He actually did die. Hence his "resurrection" into the ghastly purple mountain.
