Kiwi actor Joe Naufahu lands Game of Thrones role
Kiwi star Joe Naufahu has landed a sought-after role on Game of Thrones.
Naufahu owns and manages the Auckland gym Ludus Magnus, but is reportedly out of the country filming in Europe until January. He is best known for his role as Liscus on Spartacus and for his stint on the local series Go Girls and also starred in the critically acclaimed drama The Last Saint, which marked his brother Rene Naufahu's directorial debut.
Naufahu will join fellow New Zealander Keisha Castle-Hughes for the sixth season of the popular fantastical series.
While the finer details of Naufahu's role are still underwraps, according to Deadline Hollywood, the star has booked a "re-occurring arc" on the show. One fan site speculated that Naufahu would play a Dothraki warrior named Khal Jhaqo.
