The Dancing Master

I can also confirm that we have cast Arya's dancing partner. Playing Syrio Forel, former First Sword of Braavos, will be MILTOS YEROMELOU.



The London-based Yeromelou has done a lot of stage work, including Shakespearian turns at the Globe and with the Royal Shakespeare Company. He's played a hunchback, a panther, a clown, and a Beast (not Vincent), he's familiar with TinTin and Narnia and neanderthals, and he knows which end of the sword you stick 'em with. Some of that would have been used as hints, no doubt, but his name got out before I could start hinting.



I hear that Miltos and Maisie are already sparring on Twitter.

Just so.

I could never picture Syrio in my mind. I think he looks very good for the role though :)

Congrats, Miltos!

Can't help but notice his cap of tight black curls. Will he be sacrificing them for the team, or keeping that mat of dense black hair?

Miltos has tweeted that he was going in to makeup and prosthetics to discuss whether he'll be sacrificing those locks, or if a prosthetic skullcap will do the job.

Who I always pictured...
John Malcovich.
From the first time I read Game of Thrones back in winter of 2005 (after learning of you from the TIME article in 2005 on a very hungover flight back from Vegas), I just so easily picture Malcovich with his "just so". Although I can't wait to see this guy bring those scenes to life.
Anyway.....Finish the Dance! Oh, and good picks on the HBO series!

Re: Who I always pictured...
Huh. I never realized it, but that's exactly who I pictured, too. I adore Malkovich so very much. I can't wait to see how Miltos tackles the role. :)

I think you misspelled his name. Google corrects me, that it's "Miltos YeroLEMou" not YeroMELou. Besides this he looks very good for the role.

Oh Yes, personally I think he looks more "Syrio" with the beard.

damn... I just had to delete my post as it was full of spoilerish content. Can't ruin it for the newbies!

Awesome pick btw. Syrio is certainly one of my favorite characters.
