With Game of Thrones’ seventh season arriving on our screens this month, the public anticipation has reached new levels of hype. With each series it seems like we become more and more involved, and practically obsessed, with the unfolding saga. The fandom is so captivated by the grim and gritty stories of Westeros that it often becomes hard to separate the fact from the fiction.
A key example of this is how if any actor from the show appears elsewhere, they are stuck in our minds as the character they portrayed in Game of Thrones. It’s a hard habit to break out of, but there are some actors that look so different from their fictional counterparts that you may not recognise them at first. So what does the cast look like, once the blood, sweat and tears of their beleaguered roles are taken away?
1. Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth
2. Isaac Hempstead Wright as Bran Stark
3. Rory McCann as Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane
4. Natalie Dormer as Margaery Tyrell
5. Carice van Houten as Melisandre
