Deadpool's Ed Skrein Played Daario on Game of Thrones

Reminder: The Deadpool Villain Was Once a Very Memorable Game of Thrones Star

When Deadpool hits the big screen this weekend, people will be talking about a lot — Ryan Reynolds's face, the sex, the violence, the incredible soundtrack. But there's one thing I am dying to talk about, as a person who enjoyed the movie — and also a person who loves Game of Thrones. Because the Deadpool villain Ajax, played by Ed Skrein (seen here), is also Daario Naharis.

Confused? Let me explain:

The Daario you know and love is now portrayed by Michiel Huisman — whom you may recall is actually the second Daario.

You may have forgotten that there was an original Daario, probably because it was all the way back in season three. That, of course, was Ed Skrein, who is now terrorizing Reynolds in the Marvel movie.

See? Just picture bald Ajax with all his glorious Daario hair.

Yep.
