What “GAME OF THRONES” actors look like in real life - PHOTOS
Nathalie Emmanuel

Nathalie is a gorgeous actress who you might also know from Furious 7 besides the GoT. This British actress really got her career kickstarted with the HBO show and we hope to see her more in the future.

Arya Stark

The younger Stark girl is one of the most interesting characters on the show. She’s already been through a lot, and it’s very exciting to see her next adventures. Arya might be a girl, but she surely isn’t a lady. She’s tough and knows her way around the sword.

Maisie Williams

Young Maisie is already a professional. We watched grow up on the Game of Thrones and she’s now become a gorgeous young woman. Personally, she’s not so similar to her character Arya. In fact, she says she’s a nerd and a bookworm.


Varys is the one person who always knows all the secrets in Westeros. He’s truly vital to the plot and always surprises the audience with new twists.

Conleth Hill

We couldn’t help but wonder if he was really bald or just shaved, so here he is. Conleth Hill looks so much different in real life!

Margaery Tyrell

She didn’t want to be a queen, she wanted to be the queen. But Margaery’s beauty couldn’t save her from Cersei’s cruelty.

Natalie Dormer

The Hunger Games fans remember seeing Natalie Dormer before. She’s shown she can play versatile roles as well as shave half of her hair if needed.

Cersei Lannister

The one true evil queen, Cersei is always thinking about the next horrible thing to do, all while trying to protect her children. In the meantime, she’s having an affair with her twin brother, with whom she has the mentioned children. That’s probably the most controversial detail from the show.

Lena Headley

In real life, Lena Headley is too busy to come up with evil plots, not that she would want to, anyway. She’s had an active acting career ever since she started acting in 1992.

Jon Snow

Jon Snow is the ultimate favorite of the audience. Starting the show as an underdog, with one bad thing after another happening to him, he finally became The King of the North. It’s rumored that his role is about to become even bigger in the upcoming season 7.

Kit Harington

The role of Jon Snow brought Kit Harington worldwide fame and several other acting gigs. Be ready to see much more of him; who wouldn’t want such a star on their project?

Daenerys Targaryen

Call her Khaleesi, the Mother of Dragons, or simply Dany, this young girl is unstoppable on her way to rule the Seven Kingdoms. The fact that she has three dragons certainly helps her in her conquests.

Emilia Clarke

When she takes off her blond wig, Emilia Clarke’s character changes, too. She’s equally stunning in real life as in the show. The role of Khaleesi helped her become a Hollywood star with many offers for big roles.

The Night’s King

The Night’s King leads the White Walkers and we are waiting to see more of him in the next season, when the battle between the living and the dead starts.

Richard Brake

Without the heavy mask, the actor looks pretty normal. You may have seen him as Joe Chill in Batman Begins.

The Waif

Without the waif, Arya Stark would’ve never become the Faceless Man. The waif was training her to become one of the few cold blooded assassins with the ability to change their appearance.

Faye Marsay

Faye was the voice of Amy in 2015’s Need for Speed. The British actress showed that she’s capable of showing no emotion in her role of the waif in GoT.

Wun Weg Wun Dar Wun

Wun Wun the giant was a great help when White Walkers attacked the wall. He had a crucial role in saving Jon Snow’s life.

Ian Whyte

In case you were wondering, Ian Whyte is not a real giant, but at 7’1″ he’s pretty close. He used to play basketball and is now a stuntman.

Lyanna Mormont

When Lyanna Mormont first appeared on the show, the audience went crazy for her. She’s way smarter than anyone has expected, plus she has a huge army.

Bella Ramsey

The appeareance in GoT was the first ever for young Bella. We can all agree she’s a natural talent with an exciting career in front of her.

Tommen Baratheon

Tommen Baratheon took over the throne after his older brother Joffrey died from poisoning. The unfortunate turn of events had him commit suicide, which made his mother Cersei even madder and more evil than before.

Dean Charles Chapman

Dean had his share of big roles before; he played Billy Elliot in the play with the same title. After his fantastic performance in Game of Thrones, who knows what the future brings.

High Sparrow

The High Sparrow was the ultimate villain of the season 6, holding the whole King’s Landing hostage. He was crucial to the ending of the season.

Jonathan Pryce

Welsh-born actor Jonathan Pryce is a well-established Hollywood name. He’s been actively acting for decades, engaging in movies like Pirates of the Caribbean.

Myrcella Baratheon

Myrcella Baratheon was the last living child of Cersei and Jaime before the she was poisoned with the Long Farewell after being kissed by Ellaria Sand.

Nell Tiger Free

Young Nell replaced Aimee Richardson as Myrcella in seasons 5 and 6. Even though her appearance didn’t last long, it was enough to get her some new exciting jobs.

Grey Worm

Grey Worm is the chosen commander of Khaleesi’s Unsullied Army and is her personal protector. And yeah, he’s in love with Missandei.

Jacob Anderson

Jacob Anderson is not a warrior in real life; in fact, he’s a rapper (and obviously an actor). He’s been all around England performing. Could you imagine him as a rapper while watching the GoT?

Tormund Giantsbane

Tormund is a renowned leader of the wildlings, one of the key leaders behind Mance Rayder. He has helped Jon Snow live while at Castle Black. He’s one of the funnier characters on the show.

Kristofer Hivju

The actor was born in Norway and, besides his role in Game of Thrones, he’s worldly famous for his epic beard. He had some great acting gigs, including commercials.

Bran Stark

Bran has one of the most crucial roles on the show, with his warg powers. He is the new three-eyed raven able to see through other characters’ minds and also into the past and the future.

Isaac Hempstead Wright

The role of Bran is among the first ones for young Isaac. With a great success like this, he won’t have any problems with his upcoming acting career.


Hodor is the gentle and loving giant unable to speak anything besides his own name. The reason for that is revealed in an iconic episode of the season 6, when we found out he was destined to “hold the door” and save Bran.

Kristian Nairn

We were surprised to find out that Kristian is a 7-feet tall DJ who used his role of Hodor for his music career, naming his tour “Rave of Thrones”.
