London, Feb. 28(ANI): Actor Finn Jones aka Loras Tyrell in the HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’ has been roped in to play Iron Fist in Marvel’s latest Netflix show.
The 27-year-old actor will be playing Daniel Rand, who in the comics leaves New York City as a nine-year-old boy with his family to move to a magical hidden city, K’un L’un, in the final of the four Netflix series joining Daredevil, Jessica Jones and the upcoming Luke Cage, reports Mirror.
After the announcement, social media erupted with demands that the role should have gone to an Asian actor instead of Jones.
Jonnes will also been seen in the ‘Defenders’ mini-series that will see all four heroes come together to defend their city from a threat bigger than any one of them can handle alone.
The actor said that initially he was a bit nervous, but as he started filming, things got on track. (ANI)
