Pascal will make his first appearance as the Prince of Dorne in the fourth season of the fantasy drama.

Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss told  Entertainment Weekly “The Red Viper is sexy and charming, yet believably dangerous; intensely likeable, yet driven by hate. The boys love him, the girls love him, and he loves them all back. Unless your last name is Lannister.”

You may have seen Pascal on your TV screens already, his most recent roles include The Good Wife and Graceland.

We can’t wait to see the Red Viper in action, bring on Season four of Game of Thrones !

Game of Thrones will return to HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic in the UK in 2014.
