However, still, Elyes’s lawyer told E! News in a statement that he denies all allegations. And, the E! News also decided not to name the World War Z actor’s girlfriend solely for her privacy.

And according to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, a judge released Eyes without bail, his next court date scheduled for July 7th.
Elyes Gabel In Game Of Thrones (GOT)
Elyes Gabel was seen as Rakharo in Game of Thrones. Originally, his character’s name was supposed to be Jhogo, but HBO decided to change the name because it sounded too much like Drogo.
He initially made a guest appearance in the first season and returned in the role for the first two episodes of the second season and shortly, he was also written out.
GOT’s “The Night Lands” saw Elye’s character beheaded by other Khals to show their contempt for Daenarys. Rakharo was a well-liked character and even the showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss agreed it was a pity to see Elyes make such an early exit.
