How many black actors appear in the TV Series Game of Thrones?

I know that there is one in Dorne (The guard of Doran Martell - Areo Hotah) and another in Qarth (Xaro Xhoan Daxos).

How many more appear?

EDIT: I found one more: Salladhor Saan
System Down found: The priest of the Many Faced God (pre-transformation)

    To answer this question, you'd have to choose an arbitrary line on which side you put people you consider "black guys" and everyone else on the other. Grey worm has darker skin than Daneries does that make him a black guy? Kobarro and a few of the other Dothraki might need inspection too. – Mikey Mouse May 13 '15 at 13:58

    @nuno.filipesf May I ask why you need this info? – Boelabaal May 13 '15 at 14:30

    @nuno.filipesf all the characters that are supposed to be from the summer isles are black skinned, that includes salladhor saan and Daxos. So if you want a definite list just check the characters from the summer isles that appear in the series (some of them are removed from the series even though they appeared in the books like the archer Black Balaq). Check this link: gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Summer_Islands – yondaime008 May 13 '15 at 14:36

    The priest of the Many Faced God (pre-transformation) is black as well. – System Down May 13 '15 at 17:09

    Hang on, how is this "primarily opinion-based"? – Rand al'Thor May 13 '15 at 22:45

You'll have to ask the Unsullied... but be polite about it.

There are also many actors of color represented in:

  • Qarth
  • Astapoor
  • Meereen

  • The Summer Isles

    If you're looking for a number like "124", then you'll be hard-pressed to determine how many unique extras/unnamed characters there are. If you only want named characters, I recommend IMDB. – Andrew Coonce May 13 '15 at 15:26
