Are there some changes coming within the “Game of Thrones” universe? It’s possible, though we don’t imagine that this is going to really be that big of an issue even to some of you diehard fans out there.
According to a report from show site Winter Is Coming, the role of Prince Tommen Baratheon is being recast for the show moving forward, with Dean-Charles Chapman now taking on the part. This is a somewhat interesting booking when you consider that Chapman has already played a minor role as one of the imprisoned Lannister squires during season 3.
However, we don’t imagine that most casual viewers will notice a change here at all. The last actor to play Tommen in Callum Wharry has been absent from the show for over a year, and with the young actor growing up, producers may have decided to go in a different direction with the character. While this has not been confirmed yet by HBO, “Game of Thrones” is really lucky still that they have not had more recastings to do given how many young actors that they have as a regular part of their cast. It’s an achievement and a testament in many ways that it has worked out well.
At the end of the day, we don’t want to say anything here to spoil anything that is coming up for those who haven’t read the George R.R. Martin books. Let’s just say that this recasting may make a little bit of sense when you consider some of the story that is coming up, and making sure that you have the right person attached to the part.
