Game of Thrones and Stranger Things star Tom Wlaschiha has opened up about the possibility of making a comeback to the world of Westeros. The German actor, 49, is best known for his role as the mysterious Faceless Man Jaqen H’ghar in several seasons of the drama. The part was a breakout role of the star with audiences intrigued about a character who spoke in the third person.

Jaqen H’ghar first appeared in season one when he encountered Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams) in Harrenhal.

Arya later sought him out in Braavos when she decided to become an assassin at the House of Black and White, serving the Faceless God and taking lives in the process.

The character remained enigmatic throughout without any backstory, which made Jaqen H’ghar all the more alluring.

How would Wlaschiha feel about going back to Game of Thrones? “Would I ever want to return? As far as I know, it’s over,” he said.

However, the star went on to say if he would consider another part in one of the other spin-off shows such as House of the Dragon.

The star said: “Well, if ever an offer came, I would definitely consider it. It was a lot of fun shooting that show and it was really great, an honour being part of that.

“Although, personally, I’m not a big fan of… fantasy but then again for me, Game of Thrones has always been more Shakespeare than fantasy.” Adding: “The human relations spiced up with some dragons.”

Game of Thrones spin-offs have had mixed success. The first spin-off Bloodmoon was cancelled by HBO despite having a stellar cast with House of the Dragon instead getting a full series order.

House of the Dragon went on to break viewing records for HBO as the most watched HBO show in Europe, surpassing the success of parent series Game of Thrones.

Although Wlaschiha has seen House of the Dragon yet, he said would “definitely” be watching the new spin-off.

With the HBO franchise now expanding to include a Jon Snow spin-off, with Kit Harington reprising his role as the stoic Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, there is scope for Game of Thrones to get a new lease of life.

Indeed, the as-yet-untitled Jon Snow series could see plenty of familiar faces returning to screens including a Stark reunion and even Jaqen H’ghar.

The show could perhaps even serve as a do-over for the contentious Game of Thrones final season which was lambasted by many across the board.

Since starring in Game of Thrones, Wlaschiha has gone on to star in a range of other films and TV shows.

Most recently, he made his debut in Netflix’s hit 80s series Stranger Things as Russian prison guard Dmitri ‘Enzo’ Antonov, who befriended Hopper (David Harbour) and fought demogorgons with Hawkins’ police chief at Kamchatka.

Whether he will be reprising his role as Enzo in the fifth and final season of Stranger Things remains to be seen with the actor admitting even he didn’t know about the fate of his character.

Wlaschiha will next be starring in Starz’s Dangerous Liaisons, which recently premiered and is loosely based on the 1782 novel of the same name by author Pierre Choderlos de Laclos.

He said: “This show is really setting out to broaden the horizon of telling the story of how the two main characters met when they were young.”

The star plays a “very ambitious surgeon” at the court of the French king. “At that time, being surgeon meant really dissecting dead bodies and playing around the entrails and organs,” he said.

Wlaschiha will also be filming on season two in early 2023 after the steamy period drama it was given the green light for season two. According to IMDb, he will also be appearing in the TV series Mrs Davis.
