'Game of Thrones' casts assassin Jaqen

Posted on

Game of Thrones has cast its deadly assassin Jaqen H’gar for season 2.

In one of the final positions to be filled for the second season — which is adding a slew of new characters / potential victims — German actor Tom Wlaschiha (Enemy at the Gates) has landed the role of Jaqen, Thrones fan site Winter is Coming first reported. The character is a “Faceless Man of Bravos” and one of the criminals being transported along with Arya to The Wall.

For those who missed the rest of the season 2 cast, here’s who will play Theon’s fierce sister, Stannis and Melisandre and Davos; here’s who’s cast for Brienne and here’s Margaery Tyrell.
