The British actor will play merchant prince Xaro Xhoan Daxos in the HBO fantasy drama’s new run.

“He’s the prince of Qarth, and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) runs into him,” Anozie told Coming Soon. “It’s pretty damn good. Game of Thrones just exceeded all expectations. Everyone’s on top of their game. It’s just amazing.”

Anozie also hinted that fans can expect “a lot of action” from the new episodes.

“Season two is bigger,” he said. “It goes deeper into the politics of what is going on. There is a whole episode devoted to a war, that’s going to be big, but I can’t say anymore!”

Natalie Dormer, Carice van Houten, Stephen Dillane, Liam Cunningham and Hannah Murray are among the other actors to have signed up for roles on Game of Thrones.

Dog Soldiers’ director Neil Marshall will helm an episode for the second season, as will The Pacific‘s David Nutter, Rubicon‘s Alik Sakharov and Boardwalk Empire‘s David Petrarca.

Game of Thrones will return to HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic later this year.

Anozie stars opposite Liam Neeson in the new wilderness thriller The Grey; it opens in cinemas on Friday January 27.

It just doesn’t seem right watching Natalie Dormer act in contemporary clothing, let alone with her natural blond hair.

“I do quite a lot contemporary stuff,” Dormer told me, laughing, during a phone interview from London, “but the American audience perhaps wouldn’t know me so well for that.”

What Americans do know the British actress for is her role as the brunette Anne Boleyn in “The Tudors,” Showtime’s bodice-ripping take of the lives and wives of 16th century British King Henry VIII. BBC America currently airs repeats of that series on Wednesdays, but fans can see the modern, blond Dormer in the network’s horror-comedy mashup “The Fades,” in which she plays Sarah, a ghost-fighting “angelic.”

Without spoiling—the network airs the fourth of six episodes at 8 p.m. Feb. 4 (but I recommend you find them and start from the beginning; my review here)—Dormer’s character is put through the wringer.

“I got a great kick out of this show because it was so physically demanding,” Dormer said. “A lot of extreme stuff happens, without giving too much away, we all had ash being blown in our faces or were covered in goo and glue or had to deal with peculiar, extreme physical situations.”

Dormer dons period costumes again for her role in Season 2 of HBO’s fantasy hit “Game of Thrones,” which begins April 1. She finished filming in December, but did not want to reveal too much about her character, Margaery Tyrell. Like Sarah in “The Fades,” practically anything you say about Margaery is a spoiler.

Awkward teen Paul sees dead people. So what, right?

As you begin to read this review of BBC America’s “The Fade,” (8 p.m. Jan. 14, BBC America; 3.5 stars out of 4), you’re likely going to shrug, thinking you’ve seen plenty of ghost stories, not to mention TV shows and movies about teen outcasts trying to fit in and/or get lucky.

You haven’t seen “The Fades.”

Created by Jack Thorne (British versions of “Skins” and “Shameless”), this six-part horror series skillfully crosses “Superbad” with “The Sixth Sense” and just a drop of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” It’s a funny, creepy, touching thriller that had me laughing one second and peeking between my fingers the next.

When Paul (Iain De Caestecker) witnesses a dying woman and a man attacked by an inhuman creature with a tongue that would make KISS frontman Gene Simmons jealous, he’s so freaked out he can’t even tell his best friend, sex- and “Star Wars”-obsessed Mac (Daniel Kaluuya), what he saw.

What can you tell us about your character, Sarah?
“She’s married [to Mark, played by Miranda’s Tom Ellis] and Sarah has this double existence, because she is an Angelic. Her gift is that she’s a seer, she can see the future, and she has visions which she then relays to other Angelics. So she’s normal, but she’s got a history of mental illness and it’s obviously something she’s really struggled to come to terms with. Mark has been her saviour from that. The marriage has broken down for a plethora of reasons, the most pertinent being that she’s living a double existence that he doesn’t understand, which creates a lot of friction. She’s been clutching at straws, trying to maintain a normal life, pretending to herself, lying that she can have a normal, average, uneventful life – and she can’t.”

What attracted you to The Fades?
“The strength and the dexterity of Jack’s writing. Everyone loves a good love story, and everyone loves a bit of action, and everyone loves a bit of guts and gore, you know, even the girls do. Nothing in this is gratuitous – everything that is done is done to create true, weighty emotion. So there’s no horror pornography in this. When it gets really dark, it gets dark for intelligent reasons.”

Does Sarah see her gifts and status as an Angelic as a blessing or a curse?
“When you meet her at the beginning of the series she would definitely say it was a curse, because her marriage and her life have been destroyed by it. And that’s something that Iain’s character Paul has to face. It’s about finding your place in the world, where you belong, and not denying who you really are. Identity and self-identity is a very strong theme of the show. There is real, genuinely intelligent writing behind it, behind all the fun and the running around and the entertainment.”
