We love or hate them. Well, not them, but their characters from Game of Thrones. These characters seem so close to reality, even if we are talking about a fantasy show, that we can’t truly imagine or „see” them connected to our day do day reality. Surely though, like everyone else watching the show, you’ve already asked yourself: what do these actors look like in real life?
Some of them don’t appear to be very different from their character, some others could be hard to recognize outside the show.
Let’s compare some of the Game of Thrones characters vs Game of Thrones actors in real life! 🙂
#1 Carice van Houten as Melisandre
#2 Maisie Williams as Arya Stark
#3 Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth
#4 Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister
#5 Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen
#6 Jaime Lannister played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
#7 Kit Harington as Jon Snow
#8 Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell
#9 Iwan Rheon as Ramsay Bolton
#10 Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark
#11 Rory McCann as Sandor Clegane aka The Hound
#12 Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister
It’s a strange feeling to put aside the character and just see the actor. It’s almost like your mind refuses to do so and still sees the character and the actor as two different persons, entities.
That’s actually a sign that the character seems real to you and the actor did his job well.
How about you? Can you still see your favorite character in there, even when the wigs, costumes and fake scars are dissapearing?
Some of these are big changes in the actor’s phisical appearance, but they still seem natural, somehow.
As if you know there’s a Sansa, or a Cersei, Melisandre, a Jaime, Jon Snow and even a Red Witch or a strong Tyrion inside this people!
