IMDb is listing Danish actor Dar Salim to be playing the role of Qotho, one of Khal Drogo’s bloodriders, in Game of Thrones. Now, we know that IMDb isn’t always accurate. However this one has a ring of truth to it. First off, Salim has the right look. Interestingly, he also happens to be repped by the same agency that reps Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Winter Is Coming: I have a feeling this might be legit. His agent probably submitted the credit to IMDb without waiting for any sort of announcement. It seems to be HBO’s M.O. to only announce the major roles and let the minor ones go to GRRM and if GRRM doesn’t have time to do the clues we don’t get any word until a fact sheet is released. I’m sure a number of the minor roles have probably been filled since we got the first fact sheet a couple weeks back. At any rate, I’m trying to get confirmation on this and will let you know what happens.
