Some stars have such an enigmatic aura that they fascinate you even if it’s for a drastically reduced role. They become the face of the character for years to come, and game of thrones had plenty of these characters. Tom Wlaschiha who played Jaqen H’ghar, one of the show’s most mysterious characters, recently appeared on the fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things as a Russian guard who helps Hopper escape. Wlaschiha has landed another role in an upcoming project that will further expand her acting portfolio in the coming days.
Tom Wlaschiha and his Game of Thrones co-star Jazzy de Lisser (Tansia) have joined the cast of Viaplay’s main English original feature Hilma. The film is written and directed by Lasse Hallström, the Oscar-nominated director of films like The rules of the cider house and my dog life. Hilma is a biopic, which explores the life of revolutionary Swedish artist and pioneering feminist Hilma af Klint, which is slated for release this fall in theaters and on Viaplay, Scandinavia’s leading streaming service.
Wlaschiha portrays Rudolf Steiner, the Austrian artist and founder of the anthroposophical spiritual movement. Steiner became a key figure and mentor to Hilma af Klint who created over a thousand striking paintings, sketches and watercolors that remained largely unknown until decades after her death.
