BuzzFeed has done an awesome run-down of where some of the actors from Game of Thrones were before they were the wonderful characters of the world we’ve come to love (if you didn’t already love it).
There’s a few obvies – Ned (Sean Bean) was Boromir and Osha (Natalia Tena) was Tonks but there are a few ones that surprised me a little. Daenerys looks really weird blond. And I totally didn’t put together that Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) was from Stuart Alan Jones from Queer As Folk!
I think failing to mention that Jason Momoa was also from Stargate Atlantis and that Natalie Dormer was on the Tudors lets this post down a little. I mean at least that Jason Momoa was on Stargate, c’mon…
A truly interesting one they’ve left out though was that Shae once was a German porn star. Nice step up Sibel Kekilli – though she did win a few awesome acting awards in Germany before jumping up to Game of Thrones.
