Steve Toussaint reveals racist abuse after being cast in House of the Dragon 

Steve Toussaint Actor told Radio Times on social media about backlash after being chosen as a part of House of the Dragon.

Steve Toussaint as Corlys Velaryon in the upcoming Game Of Thrones prequel HOTD received racist abuse online. 

Steve Toussaint the 57-year-old British actor has previously starred in Doctor Who, Jurassic World Evolution 2, It's a Sin, Red, White and Blue, and more.

The backlash started because the books written by George RR Martin on which the series is based, described Corlys Velaryon as having white skin, ghostly pale hair, and purple eyes. 

However, in the new series, Corlys Velaryon is reimagined as black nobles with long silver dreadlocks by the clan.

Steve Toussaint replied to the backlashing fans that when the character 'Corlys Velaryon' was a criminal, pirate, and slave in the other show, you were fine with that. 

Steve Toussaint also said as the character 'Corlys Velaryon' is a richest and most noble person in this show, now you have a problem with it. 

Steve Toussaint wanted to be part of the iconic series Games of Thrones sequel to House of the Dragon.

But I didn't get the chance to be a part of GOT. So choose to be the part of the House of the Dragon without even bothering about the character said Steve Toussaint.
