You have seen you favourite Game of Thrones actors donning their wigs and heavy armour, fighting the white walkers, riding the dragon and vying for the kingdom, but have you seen these stars much before they came to the Seven Kingdoms.
Before these stars became famous for their on-screen avatars in GoT, many of them appeared in other television series and/or films. But, their performances in GoT often make you forget that the stars hiding beneath ‘Daenerys Targaryen’, ‘Jon Snow’ and ‘Cersei Lannister,’ could have also played other characters prior to making their appearance on HBO’s most popular series.
