3 Jul – Previously, we brought news that a Hollywood movie based on a true World War II incident is being filmed at Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios in Johor.

Now we might know who, apart from lead actor Zach McGowan ("Black Sails"), are appearing in the upcoming Hawaiian war movie entitled "Ni'ihau".

Former "Game of Thrones" actor Joe Naufahu has been spotted around town in Malaysia, New Zealand's Spy News reports, along with fellow Kiwi actor Beulah Koale.

Fans of the popular TV series would recognise Naufahu as Khal Moro, the Dothraki leader he portrayed in the sixth season of the show.


Joe Naufahu portrayed Dothraki leader Khal Moro in American fantasy drama TV series, "Game of Thrones".

Meanwhile, moviegoers may not have seen much of Koale in Hollywood productions but they will get a taste of the 25-year-old's acting when he appears in Jason Hall's American biographical war drama film, "Thank You for Your Service", in October this year.

The roles of both actors in "Ni'ihau" have yet to be revealed.

Based on the Ni'ihau Incident that took place in 1941, the directorial debut by Gabriel Robertson follows the event that took place after Hawaiian native Ben Kanahele saved the life of Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service pilot, Shigenori Nishikaichi, after the pilot crashed his plane onto the Hawaiian island of Ni'ihau.
