To this day, Game of Thrones remains one of the most successful and popular shows in the world. Us fans used to look forward to watching the fresh new episodes and live-tweeting all the nasty details, but alas, the series concluded in 2019 with a less-than-stellar final season, and many people were furious. Whatever was the issue, it wasn’t the actors’ fault so let’s celebrate them a bit more! Many of the celebs have changed so much over the years that it is difficult to believe they are the same people.
Here are 14 Game of Thrones stars before they were famous.
Did you know that Ian starred in “Kingdom of Heaven” with Nikolai Coster-Waldau? On that note, he also shared a screen with Diana Rigg in classic Doctor Who.
Fans loved Gwen as Brienne long before she was officially cast. The actress accidentally found out about the role, read the books, and tweeted it to her followers. As we can see, it worked like a charm!
He is Cona, the barbarian, a dude from Stargate Atlantis, Khal Drogo, and now Aquaman. What more can a guy want?
Diana became quite popular thanks to the Briitish TV series The Avengers (1965-1968). Aside from that, she was a Bond girl and got featured in Doctor Who.
