23 TV Characters Recast After The Actor Quit the Show
Daario Naharis (Game of Thrones)
There have been a number of cast recastings on Game of Thrones over the years, but none is more jarring than the change in the role of Daario. Ed Skrien was originally cast in the part, and was introduced on season three.
When the show returned for a fourth season, Ed had been replaced by Michael Huisman. When asked about the change, Ed told Entertainment Weekly that he left the show for “political” reasons. That’s about as vague as you can get while still being intriguing. We may never know exactly why Ed Skrein left one of the biggest shows on the planet.
