The recast follows the recent trend of the show recasting Baratheon children not seen since Season 2. This year, Dean-Charles Chapman took over the role of Tommen from Callum Wharry. Winter Is Coming also reports that the show will invent a romantic storyline not present in the books involving Myrcella and her betrothed, the reportedly aged up nephew of Oberyn Martell, Trystane Martell.
Game of Thrones has not been shy in recasting its characters. In addition to the new Tommen, Season 4 also saw new actors portraying The Mountain and Daario, so it’s possible the Myrcella recast is just the first of several recasts we could see heading into Season 5.
