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.
There are a few obvious – Ned (Sean Bean) was Boromir and Osha (Natalia Tena) was Tonks but there are a few ones that shocked me a little. Daenerys looks really mysterious blond. And I completely didn’t put together that Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) was from Stuart Alan Jones from Queer As Folk!
I think failing to consider 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.
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.
