The first part of season 4 of Stranger Things is now available on Netflix. In a matter of a few days, the series has once again been on everyone’s lips, as the creation of the Duffer brothers has returned in style. Internet forums are already abuzz with fans coming up with their own theories on how the series will continue in Season 4: Volume 2, which hits the big red N platform on July 1. Meanwhile, there are those who are turning to see the episodes in a more leisurely way. This is how some have discovered that two actors from this new season were already present in Game of Thrones.
As if to recognize them: Stranger Things: the last episode of season 4 will be a little shorter than expected
This German actor is mainly known for his role in Crossing Lines, where he played Commissioner Sebastian Berger. In the new season of Stranger Things, the 48-year-old actor plays Dmitri Antonov, a prison guard of Russian origin. Dmitri is Mikhail’s father, and he is described as intelligent and charming as well.
And… What character did he play in Game of Thrones? Well, here it is difficult to locate it. In George RR Martin’s series, the German played Jaqen H’ghar, the identity assumed for a time by a Faceless Man from Braavos.
Jaqen is described as having white hair on one side and red hair on the other. He speaks as they usually do in the traditional Lorathi way, that is, omitting nouns and avoiding the first and second-person grammar.
He plays Eddie Munson, a new character introduced in the fourth season of the series. This metalhead usually experiences quite a bit of rejection from those who don’t know him, although he does receive appreciation from those who understand him. Munson is the leader of the Hellfire Club, the official club of Dragons and Dungeons of the Hawkins Institute, a game that takes itself too seriously and for which reason, it is related to the crimes of Vecna in this new season.
Not much is known about what will happen to this character in the second part of the fourth season, but some media are already speculating about his future due to a comment made by the actor himself – and that we are not going to mention because it is a spoiler like a grand piano.
Long before his arrival at Hawkins, Joseph Quinn also had a role in Game of Thrones, although his participation was quite brief. He did it in the fourth episode of the seventh season. In this chapter, called The Spoils of War, the British actor played Koner, a soldier of House Stark in Winterfell. If you don’t remember his performance well, he shows up when Arya tries to meet up with her sister Sansa in town. After arriving at her door, two guards prevent her from passing, and laugh at her, telling her that she is an impostor since the real Arya Stark is dead. After a little discussion, Koner sends her for a walk after letting her out with a couple of rather cocky comments.
