House of The Dragon’s Steve Toussaint once auditioned for a role on Game of Thrones




Game of Thrones was the most significant fantasy series of the century. There were many who dreamed about getting onto the show even if it was for a small role. Steve Toussaint was one of those actors, and even though he didn’t get his chance in the original show, he will be playing an essential role in the prequel House of The Dragon.

Toussaint has been a Game of Thrones fan for a long time and even auditioned for several roles back in the day. He originally read the lines for a character we’d come to know as Areo Hotah, a part that eventually went to actor DeObia Oparei (Loki). In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Toussaint recalled:

“I ended up working with a girl called Jessica Henwick. I did a job with her. Now, in her section of the story [in Game of Thrones], there’s her and there’s her sisters with the whips and stuff.” That would be Henwick’s Nymeria Sand, who’s known with her siblings as the Sand Snakes in Dorne. “Then there’s her mother, who’s [played by] Indira Varma. And then there’s her uncle. Her uncle has a bodyguard. That was one of the roles I auditioned for.”

He concluded, “I’m glad I got this rather than that.”
