Another casting for the road: Game of Thrones has found its notorious sell sail pirate Salladhor Saan. Producers have enlisted Lucian Msamati in the role for the highly anticipated second season. He’s a (one more time, all together now) British stage and screen actor. Msamati is known to some HBO viewers from his role on No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency.

Salladhor Saan is a mercenary pirate pledged to the late King Robert’s brother Stannis. In addition to Saan, Thrones season 2 has also cast a lecherous Northerner and one of his pet wives, and a faceless assassin and Theon’s fierce sister and an heir to the Iron Throne and his sorceress and the Onion Knight and a female wannabe knight and a proper princess. Check out my Game of Thrones season 1 recaps here.
