I know a lot of you are fans of the series, if comments in previous posts are any indication; and I'm sure it'll gain even more fans with a new set of actors joining the upcoming, highly-anticipated season 2 of the hit HBO show - specifically black Brits Lucian Msamati and Nonso Anozie, and all the debate that accompanied those posts about the so-called black British Hollywood invasion.

HBO set a return date for season 2 of Game Of Thrones, based on the best-sellers by George R.R. Martin, for Sunday, April 1.

Season 2 will comprise of 10-episodes.

I missed season 1, but I'm waiting for the DVD/Blu-ray set to be released on March 6, giving me enough time to catch up before season 2 begins.

We've seen a couple of trailers for the upcoming new season, but none of them includes either of the above 2 actors, so we haven't been treated to looks of what their characters will look or sound like... until now, for Nonso Anozie specifically.

Courtesy of, here's your official first-look at Xaro Xhoan Daxos in full below - described as "a wealthy merchant who takes in Daenerys, the members of her khalasar (the Dothraki that stuck with her after the death of husband Khal Drogo), and her knight, Ser Jorah Mormont (Iain Glenn), and becomes an adviser of sorts."

    I've read all five books. Wasn't Xaro Xhoan Daxos white? He is Quartheen and they are described as white skinned pale people. That and he cries a great deal. I'm going to have a hard time watching such a strong actor shed tears like a baby.

    I LOVE THIS SERIES! A brotha is joining the cast, how exciting. Saw some mixed raced sistas dancing around, but that was all the people of color. So looking forward to this.
