Entertainment Weekly reports that Msamati, best known for his guest stint on Doctor Who and for his role in The No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, will be playing the pirate Salladhor Saan.

In the second A Song of Ice and Fire novel by George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings, Saan pledges his allegiance to Stannis Baratheon (to be portrayed by Stephen Dillane), younger brother of King Robert and one of the kings who will, well, be clashing in the second season of the HBO series.
