Sorry Neil Nitin Mukesh fans, HBO has officially confirmed that the actor will not be part of Game of Thrones. We previously busted this rumour as the facts presented just didn’t add up.
Greg Powell, who was reported to have offered him the role, has no authority to do so because he is not the stunt director of Game of Thrones (contrary to what was reported in the media). Moreover, HBO is unlikely to cast someone this late as the show usually ends filming by November/early December.
Now our reliable friends at Watchers on the Wall have got confirmation from the network that the actor is not part of the cast and was never offered a role in the first place.
