Game of Thrones's Michiel Huisman on Whether We'll See Daario Naharis Again
With the upcoming eighth and final season of Game of Thrones on the horizon, actors from across the entire spectrum and timeline of the HBO fantasy hit have been asked at least one of following two questions: Is your character coming back? And is your character going to survive? Actor Michiel Huisman, who played sellsword Daario Naharis from seasons four through six, was recently asked the former.
Since HBO is particularly good at getting its actors to stay silent, his response was about as unhelpful as you might expect. "I can't wait to see the finale!," Huisman exclaimed excitedly in an interview with Digital Spy. "I don't know what to say. I shouldn't spoil anything so I'm not gonna tell you."
We last got to see Daenerys's bodyguard/lover in the season six finale, when Daenerys instructed him to steward the cities she'd freed in Essos while she went on her campaign to conquer Westeros, much to his chagrin. While he hasn't been seen since and only got a single reference in season seven, it's presumed that he and his Second Sons cabal are still holding down the fort in Dragon's Bay.
It's entirely possible that Daenerys will call him and his soldiers back to her side, particularly if she needs them to counter the Golden Company, hired by Cersei to shore up her Lannister forces. Of course, that would put him in direct conflict with Daenerys's new squeeze Jon Snow.
Guess we'll have to wait until next year to find out.
