I didn’t really know any of the actors in Game of Thrones before I started watching the show, except for Sean Bean. So the other day when I watched the Coldplay Game of Thrones musical skit I was surprised to see how different some of the cast look. So I thought I would do a blog post comparing the actors to their characters. Prepare for some big differences!
I think Kit, Maise and Nikolaj are the ones that look the most similar to their characters, but I was really surprised to see what Emilia and Lena looked like in real life. I’ve learned a few things when looking these images up. For example that Alfie (Theon) is Lily Allen’s brother, that Nikolaj is Danish and that Emilia (Daenerys) is really short – 1.57cm! For some reason I always thought she looked tall in the show.
It was quite fun looking them up actually. I know I didn’t include all the main characters, but I got tired of copying, resizing and pasting images, haha.
Were you surprised by either of these? Let me know in the comments section!
