game of thrones daenerys targaryen season 4 'Game of Thrones' Season 4 pics: First look at the Red Viper and Daario

The countdown for “Game of Thrones” Season 4 has officially begun: HBO has released the first official photos from the new season.

While they’re loaded with the requisite amounts of images of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow and Arya Stark, the stills also officially introduce fans to three new faces in Season 4: Pedro Pascal as Oberyn Martell (the Red Viper), Indira Varma as Ellaria Sand and Michiel Huisman as Daario Naharis.

“But wait!” you may say. “Didn’t we meet Daario in Season 3?” Yes, but he’s been recast as Huisman after Ed Skrein (last season’s Daario) left the show. As you can see, Huisman’s Daario has a completely different look.

Viewers might be a bit confused by the makeover, but hopefully they’ll be too distracted by how freaking awesome the Red Viper is (and Ellaria, for that matter) to notice. Check out the first official look at these two here:
