"The Lord of Light sent the Mother of Dragons to you – and those who love the darkness chased her away. How will you respond? Will you let them drag you back into the long night of bondage? Will you wring your hands while you wait idly for the Mother of Dragons to return? Or will you take up her flames yourselves? Will you burn away the chains and the nonbelievers who make them? Will you fight for your own salvation, now that Queen Daenerys is not here to fight for you?"
―Zanrush to a crowd of Meereenese[src]

Zanrush[1] is a recurring character in the sixth season and debuts in "The Red Woman". He is a Red Priest of R'hllor, based in the city of Meereen. He is played by Gerald Lepkowski.



Season 6

Tyrion Lannister and Varys listen to Zanrush preaching his message to a crowd of Meereenese freedmen. The Red Priest wants the populace to follow Daenerys' example in her absence and free themselves from the tyranny of the masters.[2]

When Kinvara comes to the pyramid to speak with Tyrion and Varys, Zanrush announces her, listing her titles, then steps aside while the others converse.[3]
