Watching our favorite characters on the popular TV show is nothing short but a wild roller coaster ride, you just never know what you’re going to get. Which is why it’s so intriguing to see the characters as their normal selves in the real world. Check out these unreal, but very real, photos of what the cast looks like in real life.
Thanks to George R. R. Martin penning A Song of Ice and Fire, we have one of the greatest fantasy drama television series out there. 2011 is when the first season aired and the eighth and final season is supposed to reach our screens in 2019. I know it’s a long time to watch but loyal fans know that the wait is so worth it.
For those not familiar with (I mean, who are you?), here’s a little background for you. Set in the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, is filled with various plot lines and a huge ensemble cast (and when you’re reading the books, all those characters can get hard to keep track of!) but it primarily centers on three primary story arcs. The first arc follows the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms and the intricate web of alliances and intense conflicts among the ruling noble families either salivating to claim the throne or fighting for independence from the throne. The second arc is more focused on the last descendant of the realm’s deposed ruling dynasty, exiled and plotting a return to the throne. Finally the third story arc is centered on the longstanding brotherhood which is charged with defending the realm against all ancient threats of the fierce peoples and mythical creatures that exist in the far north, and the impending winter which threatens the realm.
Peter Dinklage, Sean Bean, Kit Harington, Jack Gleeson, Mark Addy, Michelle Fairley, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams – these are just some of the extraordinary cast members who bring our favorite, and not so favorite, characters alive on our television screens. The series and various cast members have gone on to win some impressive awards and accolades. What makes the series really stand out, apart from the nudity, is its acting, complex characters, story, scope, and production values.
With so much buzz following this series, fans are always intrigued to see what their favorite characters look like off-screen. And trust us, you’ll be surprised by a number of these!
Oh, hey, Bran, you looking super adorable! We’re so glad that Isaac hasn’t suffered the same tragedies that Bran has. On another note, I would love to get those eyeglass frames online like right now.
