A New Daenerys

Those of you who read Mo Ryan's blog for the CHICAGO TRIBUNE will already have heard the news: http://featuresblogs.chicagotribune.com/entertainment_tv/2010/05/game-of-thrones-hbo.html

Yes, the role of Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series of GAME OF THRONES has been recast.

Our new Daenerys is a beautiful and talented young actress named Emilia Clarke, a recent graduate of Drama Centre London. You can learn more about her here:

I haven't had the chance to meet Emilia yet, but I've seen her auditions. She gave some kickass readings, winning out over some amazing competition from all around the world. She should make a great Dany.

(None of which should be taken in any way as a slight against Tamzin Merchant, another wonderful young actress. Her perfomance as Dany in the pilot was wonderful, I thought).

I have a few concerns. I noticed in the profile you provided that it lists the the actress' phone number and address. I'm hoping these aren't her home address and private number?

Re: concerns
That's her agent's business address and phone number. Hint: there aren't any young actresses living in the W1T postcode district, which is a fantastically expensive area.

Re: concerns
Those would be the contact details for her agency, name of Emptage Hallett.

Re: concerns
That address and phone # that appears in her profile is not her personal info. It's the address and phone # of the agency that represents her.

"Can someone explain, or point me to a post if its already been answered, why so many/all the roles need to be recast for the regular series?"

It's only two major roles so far that have been recast, so it's not "many" or "all" of them.

Re: concerns
A quick check on Google shows that the number and address are her agent's contact details, not her own.
