Remember this guy from Game of Thrones?

He's a Dothraki warrior, meaning he loves fighting, fucking and generally being a badass. This one also happens to be from Kerala!

His name is Staz Nair, and he plays the character 'Qhono' on the show. While you might have missed him on the show considering all the Dothraki look alike (is that racist?), this guy's got a pretty interesting background.

Here's what he looks like in real life, without all the warrior-lord stuff.

He's a Russian-Indian actor and singer who hails from Kerala. He initially appeared on Game of Thrones in season 6, as part of the Dothraki horde escorting a captive Daenerys to Khal Moro. 

At that time, he taunts and mocks his prisoner.

However, he later becomes one of Dany's most loyal soldiers, and rises through the ranks to become the de facto leader of her Dothraki army.

His character was killed during the battle in Winterfell against the Night King's army.

From Womb to Tomb... THANKYOU @hbo and everyone involved. Can’t help but feel a little at a loss right now, I had just stopped living in a corridor when I booked @gameofthrones so it represents SUCH a transition in my life that I will always be so grateful for. GOT also allowed me to reconnect with my Indian heritage, it’s such an honour to be a part of so much pride, the hometown (Kerala) support has been so humbling so Thankyou to all of my malayali/Indian people. I hope those who haven’t watched the last episode enjoy it. Thankyou for all your support throughout the years, a production is only ever as successful as its fanbase Is passionate - you guys helped turn this show into the legacy its become and its an honour to be a part of that. S. 🖤💙 #got #finale #got8 #qhono #dothraki #malayalipride

After the end of the show, Staz put out a heartfelt post about how much the show meant to him, and how it allowed him to reconnect with his Indian heritage. 

Apart from being a horse-riding hellraiser on the show, Staz has also been blessed by the Lord of Good Looks. Like damn, what is that face?!

Like seriously, them genes though.

But hey, looks aren't everything, right?...right. Let's hope we get to see more of him soon!
