“Game of Thrones” Actors When They Were Young (Part I)


1. Lena Headey, Cersei Lannister
“The Summer House “(1993) is one of the first big roles for a 20-something-year-old Cersei, where she played a bride who just can’t make up her mind!

2. Charles Dance, Tywin Lannister
This guy had so many acting gigs, we’d need a full article just to cover them all. For now, let’s just say he would make a nice Putin.


3. Alfie Allen, Theon Greyjoy

First seen in “Elizabeth” (1998) this a tiny lad began his long and bumpy way to becoming the most sympathetic traitor in the history of everything.


4. Conleth Hill, Lord Varys
At some point Varys did have hair (obviously) but it’s still pretty weird to see him with a full majestic mane. Hey, maybe he trained so hard his hair fell out? We know it worked for Saitama (OPM reference because I can)!


5. Iain Glen, Jorah Mormont

Here’s a fun fact for all you Jorah/Dany shippers: he’s not getting into Daenerys’s royal palace, if you know what I mean. #KhaleesiZoned

6. Emilia Clarke, Mother of Dragons, Khaleesi
Forget it, Jorah! You’re too old for this Queen!

7. Diana Rigg, Olena Tyrell
Hey, is that really gramma Tyrell? Wow, she looked freaking stunning back in 1967.


8. Peter Dinklage, Tyrion Lannister

He may not look like much but this fellow has been through a lot to become the Dinklebot, the B@tchslapper, House MD Jr. and generally one of the best actors in Game of Thrones. Show him some respect!

9. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jaime Lannister
His first leading role as a creeptastic, yet good-looking, serial killer in “Nightwatch” (1994) opened numerous doors for Nikolaj. One of which was to Cersei’s bedroom, I’d imagine.

10. Richard Madden, Robb Stark
Let’s just say Richard had little to no troubles getting the role of Robb. Just look at him – he IS the North!

11. Liam Cunningham, Davos Seaworth, Onion Knight
Liam really looks like Nick Offerman’s half-brother and could totally sub him on the set of “Parks and Rec”, while Nick would play the Onion Knight. What a switcheroo that would be, eh?

12. Sean Bean (Eddard Stark)
Eddard Stark’s punk rock alter ego from a 1984 show called “The Bill”. Do you think he survived the episode?


13. Rory McCann, Sandor Clegane
Deep down inside even the Hound is a pretty lovable and funny guy. That’s it for today. Part II coming up soon! And maybe even Part III, who knows.
