French actor joins Game of Thrones as Dothraki filming continues

Haddad headshotAlong with a Game of Thrones casting update, we have a little peek at a season 6 script for you today!

It looks like French actor Elie Haddad will be playing a role in season 6. The actor has been sharing photos of the sights of Belfast over the last few days, on Instagram. Two days ago, he posted a photo of a script. Though the print is small, a closer look does reveal some of the text on the page, including the all-revealing word “khaleesi.”

Given the dialogue of the scene that Haddad was reading, his character is another new Dothraki addition.

We’ll tuck that photo and the text under the cut to avoid spoilers!


Elie Haddad script

We can’t decipher all the wording on the page as it’s quite small (please continue to pick away at it in comments), but the scene appears to involve Dothraki men joking crudely about Daenerys. Whether this is just after she’s taken by the khalasar (the one seen in the season 5 finale) or at a later time, we don’t know.

The page contains comments such as “I like her,” and “I’ll bet she gets nice and pink when you pinch her.” It looks like the word ‘khal’ is on the page as well in a non-dialogue section.

One Dothraki man says, “I’d like to know what a khaleesi tastes like,” and another responds crassly, “Good. You can suck my dick.” And then they have a good laugh about it.


Speaking of Dothraki-playing actors, new cast member Diogo Sales shared this pic today of him and Joe Naufahu. You can see Naufahu’s rocking the braided Dothraki beard.

Game of Thrones was filming Dothraki scenes at Titanic Studios well into the night yesterday involving the temple we posted about. With so many actors needed for the major setpiece being filmed over the next couple weeks, we can probably expect more info to pop up.

    1. Oooh la la!! I wish I could read that script page.

      Did I get the Hodor post? I guess so, but I have been vocal about not being into the Hodoring, so instead….

      Ditto, but they clearly must be important….maybe book readers care less because it’s been aaaaaaages since we’ve read of them? I’m guessing we see a lot of them in Winds 🙂

      Edit: also, they are such beautiful men that this slow storyline is getting more interesting… 😉

      Actually in the books Dany does still have some of her khalisar Dothraki with her in Meereen so they have not been forgotten 🙂

      Sooo, I guess “You can suck my dick” is the new “Bad Pussy”. Hmm, quality. Ok.

    10. I’m not sure why some people are complaining about all the Dothraki. Given how ADWD ended, it seems pretty clear she will be spending some time with them in the next book. Sure, I’d like Dany to start making her way west, too, but if she’s finally going to get her Khalasar, it wouldn’t make a lot of sense if it only consisted of a few people.

    14. They foreshadowed dany’s khalasar and her deep connection with them in many opportunities so I’m hella excited for the next season.

      It’s gonna be so badass if (as we expect) she unites all khalasars and make them cross the narrow sea like no Khal has ever did.

        Quote  Reply

    15. Wall Builder,

      Yeah, I can make out part of the line that precedes “I like her”, but not all of it. It starts with “Who cares about …”. Then there’s a couple of words I can’t fully decipher, and the sentence concludes on the next line with a word that does look like it could be “midget”. Initially, I thought that “midget” might be a reference to Tyrion, but it wouldn’t make much sense for the Dothraki to be talking about him in this scene. This exchange is likely taking place early in the season, and Tyrion isn’t with Dany at the moment. By the time they’re all reunited back at Meereen, the Dothraki should be treating Dany and her advisers with more deference.

      So it’s probably another jab aimed at Dany during the big gathering. “Who cares about her? She’s a midget!” would be my best guess as well.

      Overall, the dialogue in this scene is pretty crude – which I’m sure is absolutely intentional. The Dothraki aren’t the most refined bunch, and it makes total sense that they would treat Dany like this before she manages to find a way to subjugate them. But this is the kind of scene that certain people are going to have a field day picking apart out of context. Out of all the script pages from the eagerly-anticipated new season that could have potentially leaked, it just had to be this one, didn’t it? 😉

      Narbo,

      Isaac, Maisie, and David Bradley. Quite an unlikely crew. 🙂 They’re almost certainly all filming their own separate scenes at the studio, but we can all hold out hope that Arya and Walder Frey will cross paths sooner rather than later.

      Yes, and I sure hope that Drogon doesn’t develop a taste for BBQed Dothraki. That could get just a bit out of hand for Mom afterwards. 😉
      Gosh, so much eye-candy in the Dothraki storyline next season. 🙂

      Kargaryen: They foreshadowed dany’s khalasar and her deep connection with them in many opportunities

      In the show she was first introduced via the Dothraki – that’s where her story began. Not in Westerosi feudal politics. Which is why I never could understand all the speculation back in the day by many fans that the show would just completely skip her Dothraki storyline and have her rush to Westeros. 😀

      Basically, this will make her a female Ghenghis Khan.

      Better then nothing, i’ll take what I can get.
      This season is looking really good, I wonder if longer episodes would be to much to ask for. The Nothern battle
      Jon snow getting Resurrected and getting aid from the wildlings
      Jamie in kings landing and Riverrun
      Tyrion in mereen
      More dorne
      A white walker scene that will over shadow hardhome
      Tower of joy along with other fascinating flashbacks
      Arya continuing her training
      Did I forget to leave out The Huge Nothern battle towards the end ?
      God I can’t wait!!!!
      I know I left out a lot of other events, this is looking beautiful.

    21. Looks more and more like the theme of this season will be returning to the beginning.

      Jon becomes the deserter. Danny becomes a Dothraki slave. Tyrion is left holding the reins. Arya goes back to Westeros. Sansa is abused for being feminine (she’s already into her story, obviously). Bran has no hope of walking ever again. Cersei thinks she has power. Jaime is back on the battlefield. The Hound is not a knight (or is he?) and longs to kill, especially his brother. The Mountain is dead on the outside as well as the inside. What will they do this time around? Have they learned to control their fates? CAN they control their fates? And what does all of this character development mean to the rest of the story?

      Plus, really looking forward to the equal-time eye candy! Can’t wait for April (?)!

      Gosh, so much eye-candy in the Dothraki storyline next season.

      I think that the Dothraki may directly/indirectly help Dany assert herself as a Queen and leader but I doubt they will do much more than that. Dany’s air force will be her hammer and her alliances will build her ground/navy forces, if necessary. For me, the UnSullied are a big ‘?’ in her return to Westeros but, imho, the Dothraki should stay in Essos.

      As far as eye candy goes, enjoy it while it lasts! 🙂

Unless you’ve all got amazing eyesight, of course and it’s just me that can’t read it. If anyone thought to save a copy of the original I can give it the Photoshop treatment to see if that helps, but it’ll have to wait for the morning, it’s 1am here and I should have gone to bed several hours ago. Night all 🙂

      I tried it in Photoshop myself while I was still at work. The problem I had was that saving the image and then opening it in Photoshop already reduced the quality enough that it was difficult to improve. I’m not a pro PS’er though so *shrug*

      The only thing I might say I’d “dislike” about Dany hanging with the Dothraki too much is that I think she sounds so great speaking high Valyrian. The more she says in that language the better for me. 🙂

      Well, the wildlings are not much better than the dothraki. I’m just worried how they’d deal with winter.

      They’ve talked so much about how the dothraki fear the “poisoned” water and how they don’t trust a water their horses can’t drink so it would feel frustrating for me if they never crossed the narrow sea.

      Funny thing? There really isn’t. “Enhance” is a pretty common joke among graphic designers and imaging technology people. Kind of like the scene in CSI where two people are trying to defend against a hack by both of them typing on one keyboard.

      No, you’re not forgetting anything. There are some in council and some on the streets, but they don’t do much that we hear about. Dany has built a huge entourage- wanted and unwanted- at this point.

    32. It is scenes like these that make it hard for me to get interested in Dany’s storyline. So many of the antagonists Dany has faced over these years are the in-your-face Mustachio twirling type that I just don’t find interesting. Hopefully things will be better once she starts interacting with the other main characters

    33. It’s a monospace font, so counting letters is easy enough.

      The 3rd paragraph, before the Sand Snake-level dialogue begins:

      “Having deposited Missandei next to [4-letter word, possibly capitalized], the [4-letter word] Khals leave, and the Dothraki expect to [8-letter word] [of/at] [5-letter word].”

      The reference to Missandei is puzzling. It doesn’t look like it’s from a separate scene, so this must be either in Mereen or after Missandei has traveled to wherever the Khals are meeting. Perhaps the

      big Drogon scene

      has already happened and won over one khal, and now he’s called a bunch of other khals in for some kind of conference? And Dany has called Missandei to come there?

      I’m no expert by any means but playing with the brightness and contrast can often improve readability quite noticably. I work with someone who is a PS wizard and could get the best possible results, but we’d need a much higher res photo than the one embedded in this post. I’m tempted to doctor it but reckon I’d be rumbled once they got to the giant killer penguins/flying zombie nazi sharks bit 😉

      I think this smack talk of likening the lines from the leaked script comparing it to the “Bad pussy” line is a false dichotomy. A bunch of Dothraki sitting around making snide comments that are rude and crude would be shocking or out of place? I think not. They ARE rude and crude vs the little Tyene telling Bronn he needs a bad pussy, just don’t relate to me at all. I would laugh at the first and groaned at the second.

      Really? Don’t think I agree with that statement totally. While Mr. Martin is indeed a very good writer, he has clunky spots as well, just like the writers for GoT’s. I just find it hard to understand that people can’t simply close their eyes and imagine what some hardened, huge, lewd, rude Dothraki might say about a small blonde pretty white skinned girl they found in the desert. To quote Gollum, “I like it wriggling and raw”. Not every line is a gem, but most lines do FIT the scene. What’s to complain about. (not a question)

      Jokes aside, yes, we’ll know that ASoIaF and GoT are in part based on history, but to call something in them anachronistic is nonsense. Anachronistic in regards to which time periode?

      That’s ultimately where I was going with my question…ASOIAF definitely has elements from history, as we all know, but it is fantasy, so to say something is anachronistic doesn’t really work. I was also wondering, given the “dude-bro banter” comment, if it wasn’t the sentiment with which they had a problem, because if so, well, the line “suck my cock” exists in the books…specifically in reference to…wait for it…

      Interesting that you view that as a challenge, as if this tale is about the Dothraki overcoming their hurdles. What is best for Dany in this case? I simply can’t see the Dothraki and their horses piling into Ironborn/Meereenese ships and travelling/regurgitating from Slavers Bay to Westeros (more than a simple Narrow Sea crossing!). Even the mighty Khal Drogo was cursed and died shortly after declaring his khalasar should sail west for Dany. It is a curse for the Dothraki, not just a fear to overcome. I believe Dany will learn from this “going back to move forward” experience in S6/TWoW. Plus, if they ever make it to Westeros, the mighty Dothraki, who are basically pack animals, will freak at the sight of snow and will be useless for the real cause du jour.

    53. Nymeria Warrior Queen,

      That’s funny because using ‘cock’ does seems a better fit in this world they’ve created. Referring to a ‘dick’ seems out of place in the same way that ‘pussy’ felt out of place. However, in this case, the line will be spoken in Dothraki and hopefully, they will get the translation right on screen.

        Quote  Reply

    54. Sullied by Knight,

      It does, but I think, at least for me, that’s more because of lines like “cock merchant” and lines like Tyrion’s saying how he’d like to die. That’s in my ear. That said, I don’t think, if while watching the show, I heard someone use the term “dick,” I’d really even notice. You also make a great point in terms of the fact what we’ll be hearing is Dothraki. It will be up to whoever does the subtitles for the scene whether the word onscreen appears as “dick” or “cock.”

      Ok – rereading what I just wrote, I can’t help but laugh I’m actually engaging in a debate over “dick” versus “cock.”

      True. Such an odd discussion. However, I also find myself trying to remember which terms have been used in the show for lady bits. What word could have instead been used in Tyene’s line to not have it feel so out of place. Not really a question. Just a thought.

    57. Sullied by Knight,

      You know, now that you mention it, I recall seeing lady bits several times, but cannot think of the word(s) used to refer to them.
      As for the Tyene line, I’m of two minds about it. Yes, it was awkward. I think the same idea could have been expressed with different words, overall. However, my guess is most viewers (those who are not obsessed like those of us who frequent sites about the show and books all the time) heard it, thought, “hmm, that seemed off,” and then probably didn’t think about it, again.

      We have pretty big shoulders…but once in, always in. Sorry but you’re forever tainted now. In fact, at last weeks meeting we voted you CEO of doughnuts and booze.

      Surely not, that would be totally in line with GRRM/the books…
      Jokes aside, yes, we’ll know that ASoIaF and GoT are in part based on history, but to call something in them anachronistic is nonsense. Anachronistic in regards to which time periode? The one where dragons Wargs and White Walkers walked the earth? I think I had the flu when this was on in school.

      A better example of anachronistic is when in season 3 (?), when Loras and Sansa were briefly betrothed and they were sitting at the water fountain discussing their dream weddings, Loras tells Sansa he always dreamed of a wedding dress (or suit) with FRENCH SLEEVES! I have yet to find France in the opening credits 😉

    60. Nymeria Warrior Queen: You know, now that you mention it, I recall seeing lady bits several times, but cannot think of the word(s) used to refer to them

      What the hell, i’m in…

      “The war for Cersei’s cunt.” – Jaime (pilot)
      “You should taste her pigeon pie.” – Tyrion referring Shae (season 2)

      That’s all I have got.

    61. Nymeria Warrior Queen,

      it is fantasy, so to say something is anachronistic doesn’t really work.

      Technically the term “anachronistic” is wrong in this context but that doesn’t mean all forms of modern dialogue work in GoT. How would be people react if characters walked around saying “what’s up dude” “nothing much man”. It is a fantasy but it is still very much inspired by human history and certain types of modern phrases or words feel out of place in the show.

      “Suck my dick” does seem a little out of place and “suck my cock” or another variation of saying the same thing would come off more natural in the shows setting.

      Someone really needs to get “pigeon pie” into Urban Dictionary (if anyone even still uses Urban Dictionary).

      It was fringed sleeves. They even talk about it in one of the commentaries.

      Ahh, ok, I had not heard that explanation before. That does make a lot more sense and has been bugging me since season 3 🙂 🙂
      Now I can sleep soundly this evening.

      Yes, certain modern expressions would seem incredibly out of place, and I don’t think anyone was suggesting otherwise. However, while “cock” does seem more fitting (no double entendre intended), “dick,” wouldn’t jar me the way something like “dude” would. Anyway, as Sullied by Knight pointed out, what we’ll hear on the show will be in Dothraki. We may end up seeing “cock” in the subtitles. What we’re seeing on the page of the script is merely the translation so the actors can understand what it is they’re saying.

      honestly, I get hype anytime I get news on the northern battle, but this bullshit dothraki story is killing my buzz a little, it better be worthwhile because dany’s story is just a drag and casting a lot of hunky guys won’t help it

      Was a bit too modern, but the subtitles made it work for me..

      And JCDavis, Tyene is a crude, sexually overt girl, who – like YarAsha – isn’t shy of using her sexuality against men. She quite openly wears her sexuality on her sleeve. Just like Oberyn and Ellaria, or rather Dorne in its entirety, is known for, just like how Dothraki are known for being less than eloquent to women. “Bad pussy” therefore isn’t out of character for her at all, just as much as the current Dotraki-lines are for these Khals. On the latter part we agree, but I don’t see “Bad pussy” as groanworthy based on it being out of character for Tyene, but perhaps only on it being more of a modern slur..

      I don’t understand what your idea of a false dichotomy is, because as I understand it; a dichotomy is when two concepts oppose each other. So when you say that it’s a dalse dichotomy, aren’t you saying they are akin? Because than I’m confused as to why you than started contrasting them.. Which may just be me.. and my arse… 😉

      A false dichotomy is when someone suggests that only A or B can be true when in fact both A and B can be true at the same time. There is no false dichotomy or dichotomy of any sort for contrasting “bad pussy” and Dothraki saying “cocks.”

      A good explanation of false dichotomy.

      We may be saying the same thing in a different way. I actually do apologize for the “arse” remark. Sometimes ya just get caught up in the moment. Tyene in the books and show TO ME just didn’t seem to be that overt and crude (showing boobs in the cell didn’t bother me, especially because it was Bronn, she also gave him the antidote) though I am sure I can be proven wrong. Where as the Dothraki wear their rude, crude, lewd behavior like some sort of war medal. It honestly was groan worthy to me when she said the line….somehow it just didn’t seem to fit the scene. A bunch of Dothraki sitting around being well…Dothraki, seems pretty normal to me. We may just need to agree to disagree and have a pint. Because in the larger scheme it really isn’t that big of a deal to me. But I did love the characterization of being a fem-nazi. 😛

      Oh and maybe my favorite line from last season came from Wun-Wun. “Da fook you lookin’ at” and I did indeed laugh.

    70. Corey,

      No they didn’t. Jhaqo was never cast for season one (not that he really had a memorable presence in the first book, anyway). Drogo killed Mago, who in the books is one of Jhaqo’s bloodriders (lieutenants), not Jhaqo himself. Mago is indeed still alive in the books and if I recall correctly he was the one who found Dany at the end of ADWD. Khal Jhaqo, however, is still alive in the show, though he has only been briefly mentioned till now; now, he’s been cast for season six.

      I agree, “suck my dick” is little different from the brilliant writing D&D gave us when they used the “bad pussy” line. The bottom line is, do you believe George Martin would use that contemporary syntax of a phrase in that particular scene with that particular Character (in this case, a Dothraki)…I personally believe most definitely NOT!
      I was hoping D&D were going to be humbled by fans criticisms this next season and make efforts to return the dignity of the show to at least a closer level to the books, but, from this crap dialogue to seeing them in some fairly recent live interviews, I realize they’re as arrogant and annoying as ever.
      I can only hope they don’t f*k up the Bran story line so much that it hurts. Also, reports say, they’re looping back to save face and return to story lines they missed thus far. I guess they think by doing that they’re doing their “own thing” with ASOIAF, but really, it’s not and really, they’re never going to be anything more than what they are, mediocre. imho
