Ed Skrein, the antagonist from Deadpool, said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that his decision to leave Game of Thrones was fairly political.
Political Motives for Quitting The Show
Ed Skrien initially played Daario Naharis, one of the Games of Thrones characters that is a fan favorite, for three episodes in season 3. After a brief tenure, Skrein left the program, and beginning with season 4, Michiel Huisman assumed the role of Daario Naharis.
HBO has not commented on the recast, but several rumors have emerged that the actor was unable to continue filming Game of Thrones because of other commitments.
However, Skrien revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that his decision to leave the program was political and that he had wished to continue working on it for a longer period because he loved it so much.
It was much more political than that, despite what the press had portrayed. I had intended to watch Game of Thrones for a very long time. Ed always had that in mind. I wanted to. Though it was a lovely experience, politics caused us to split up.
Additionally, the British actor has gone on to play some well-known roles in blockbuster films like Deadpool, Alita: Battle Angel, and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil after making an appearance in Game of Thrones.
Relationship rumors involving Angelina Jolie
The British actor was allegedly Angelina Jolie’s obsession in 2018, according to certain claims. The rumors first surfaced in May 2018 when Ed and Jolie were cast in Maleficent 2, and an unnamed source implied that Angelina was involved.
However, Gossipcop cleared the matter, saying Angelina did not influence the decision to cast Ed in the next Maleficent sequel because those were just speculations.
The Game of Thrones actor also keeps his family life hidden from the media’s cameras and fame.
Baby Mama of First-Born Child Is Still Secret
Skrein is enjoying being a father to Marley Skrein, the only child he and his mystery girl have together. Ed has hardly ever provided any information on the mother of his child while preferring to keep his family life out of the spotlight.
Ed has also been mum on the baby’s mother, her relationship status, and how they came to be parents.
As Ed Skrein claims that having Marley in his life is the best thing that has ever happened to him, the Maleficent 2 actor believes that being a father comes before being anything else in the world.
In an interview with Charlotte Philby on September 30, 2014, Skrein disclosed that he started singing Gerry and the Pacemakers’ “You’ll Never Walk Alone” to his son Marley when he was only five minutes old and continued to do so every night after that.
Ed says that when he is not acting, spending time with his child is his favorite activity, which adds to his fatherly moments. Ed Skrein even said that he enjoys taking Marley’s pals out, playing on the playground, and eating ice cream in the sweltering weather.
They described his everyday existence outside of fame in an interview with Evening Standard. He stated: “I’m grateful for the achievement, but I’m not particularly excited by the thought of being famous. I’m a family man, and my primary responsibility is to my son as a father. I spend my free time with them.
