      I agree with ebean. Don’t change out an actor for no reason. Matt Smith is good.
      Henry Cavill should be seen much more often – everywhere. Now. <3

      Henry Cavil does a good job on the witcher, it suits his protector personality as a person I feel. But…I do not see him as a sociopath impulsive n dark character like Daemon.
      Matt is perfect for the role, physically as he is slimer and he has this peculiar look of mistery, wild but determined character.
      I am fan of both but yeah.. Matt is PURRFECT DAEMON!

    Do not replace. Smith is fabulous as Daemon Targaryen. Why swap out the role to Cavil. I can understand the replacement for the older Rhaena; which was actually what I wanted to see as her grown. The pouty little girl did not fit the adult role, and she and Smith as Daemon, make an unforgettable pair.Do not replace Smith with Cavil.
