In a nice bit of alliterative casting news, both Podrick Payne and Pyat Pree have been cast in season two of Game of Thrones. Access Hollywood got the Pod scoop, young actor Daniel Portman has been cast to play Podrick Payne.
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.
He becomes an invaluable ally to Tyrion as the imp becomes the King’s Hand in Season 2.
Portman appeared in the 2010 horror film “Outcast,” alongside “Dr. Who” star Karen Gillan. He also has a small role in the upcoming 2012-due film, “The Angel’s Share.”
Pree is a mysterious warlock from Qarth that attempts to win Daenerys to his cause. Hanmore is a veteran TV actor with appearances on Doctor Who, Life on Mars, Outlaws and Shameless.
Winter Is Coming: Pod! Glad to see everyone’s favorite squire has made the cut. This kid looks perfect for the role. And the guy for Pyat Pree looks different than the one in my head, but no worries, I’m sure he will be fine in the role. Welcome to the cast Daniel and Ian!
