It’s easy to understand why Game of Thrones is one of the most famous and celebrated television shows in the last years, with its enormous cast filled with beautiful faces. The beauty of the actors and actress is often hidden behind layers of makeup and bizarre clothing, so shall we take them off and let’s discover who we can find beyond the mask.

Curious to explore the cast of Game of Thrones and see who is disguising behind all that makeup? You cannot even imagine how some of these characters appear in real life!


Khaleesi’s slave girl appearances on the screen are getting more frequent as the show goes on, she is getting more important as a character in the story. We wish for her and for her beloved Grey Worm that they will have some more snuggle time. She is incredibly sexy, and she is always half naked: thank you HBO!

Nathalie Emmanuel

She acted a consistent role in Furious 7 too, so it is possible that you could recognize her from it, and not from her role in Game of Thrones, that is, however, the key that opened up some doors for the British actress. We will surely see her much more often on the screens, and if we are lucky she will be less dressed.

Arya Stark

Arya Stark has a very engaging itinerary in the show, she is the young daughter of Ned Stark and Sister to Jon Snow too. Her character is very strong and independent, and is living an adventure of self discovery and revenge. How she will be looking like in real life?

Maisie Williams

Maisie Williams has become a beautiful young woman, we literally saw her growing up before our eyes on the show. The character she plays in her role is tough, but looks can be deceiving! In fact the actress states that she is a bookworm and a nerd.


The sneaky character is great and it is so vital to the story! Thanks to all his hidden stool pigeons, it always seems that he exactly know what’s happening around.

Conleth Hill

I wondered  if he was shaved or bald, but now I know that…he has hair! Wow! It’s so strange to see these characters in real life. HE also looks like a very nice and gentle man, unlike his character on the show.

Margaery Tyrell

What’s next for this poor girl? She has seen the ultimate highs and the lowest of lows, they took her from royal to prison life. She has been through hell and back during the story, but she always managed to stay strong.

Natalie Dormer

She is absolutely stunning! I’m in love with shows and movies that make beautiful actress look bad on the screen, it is serious art. She played a part in Captain America and in The Hunger Game franchise, so it is possible that you may recognize her from that.

Cersei Lannister

She is the bad mom in the show, she is vicious and vindictive. I wish you never cross her! She is absolutely evil and messed up. Spoiler alert: she has sex with her brother and her father and all her children. And in addition to her craziness, she is also able to pull off some serious badass moves.

Lena Headey

She is a bit different from her character in real life, she is an affirmed British born actress, with a very  fruitful acting career. This show only helps, as she is already famous for steaming up the big screen.

Jon Snow

The King of the North is definitely the underdog on the show, and probably for this reason he’s everyone’s favourite character . Jon Snow is so nice that it would be impossible not to support him, even if he’s not the coolest one.

Kit Harrington

The star behind the King of the North is the one that gained the most from the shows’ success, in fact, thanks to GOT’s fame he gained some starring roles in movies. This short actor will surely reach the top, one day.

Daenerys Targaryen

Khaleesi, or The Mother of Dragons, is a very tough girl and she is sexy as hell. She is looking for her king , she often seems alone and vulnerable, but she is powerful too. Who knows if she will find her king in the next season!

Wun Weg Wun Dar Wun

I should mention he is a giant. He helped defending the Wall from the White Walkers and helped saving Jon Snow’s life. He is the free folk’s giant.

Nymeria Sand

You absolutely don’t want to meet them, as the Sand sisters of Dorne are some serious badass killers.

We realized why he was only able to speak with his name in mind only after his heroic moment to “hold the door” for Bran: he was predicting the fact that he was going to die holding the door to save Bran.

Kristian Nairn

He stands at 7 feet tall and currently he is on his DJ tour called “Rave Of Thrones”. Did you realize Kristian was a DJ offset of Game of Thrones playing the gentle giant Hodor?

Doreah was a former prostitute for almost 15 years and is servant of Daenerys Targaryen. In a very famous scene, she teaches Daenerys how to have sex and give pleasure to a man. It was such a steamy scene, that it made the show for some people.

Roxanne McKee

She is a British model that decided to turn into an actress. Originally from Canada, really left a mark on viewers of Game of Thrones. Her lesbian sex scene with the mother of dragons was on everybody’s mouth after it was broadcasted. Her beauty and sexiness will surely make of her a household character.

Hannah Murray

She looks beautiful when she isn’t all dirty. It’s astonishing to see how all these Game of Thrones actress are all so pretty when the makeup is cleared up!

Samwell Tarly

He is Jon Snow’s right hand man, but he leaves when Jon needs him most. Everyone loves the silly but adorable Samwell on the show, but the character is just that, pretence.

John Bradley

Everyone recognized him from GOT, but he British actor is known for his comedic roles too. He certainly looks different when he’s not under all that makeup.


She is the wildling lover of Jon Snow, and had a steamy sex scene with him in a snowy cave, North of the Wall. She also shot Snow multiple times with her bow and arrows in the back, as he fled.

We are all waiting to see how some serious issues recently that this sneaky character has caused are going to end up. Let’s keep an eye out, her three daughters are trouble too.

Gone are her skimpy outfits in Dorne, she certainly looks different in real life. She loves wearing fur hats and actual clothing in real world.

Yara Greyjoy

She was the leader of the Iron Islands before they were stolen from her by her uncle. She is the sister of Theon Greyjoy. Every main character seems to die exactly in the moment when you start to like them. Nobody is safe in Game of Thrones, as Yara is such a tough woman fighter that thinks her brother is soft.

Gemma Whelan

Gemma is actually quite beautiful when she is not controlling the Iron Island’s ships and leading dirty men to battle. Make up artists do a great job to make her look so mean on the screen.

Jaime Lannister

Let’s hope that Jaime has some wins this season, he definitely deserves it! The Lannister boy has had a rough few seasons: his hand has been chopped off, his secret love affair with his sister has been revealed so epically and he was banished from King’s Landing.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

The Dutch actor has starred in many Dutch movies before acting in Hollywood movies like Black Hawk Down and before taking the role that would change his life on GOT, where he definitively made himself a name. He earns nearly $2 million per episode of GOT, so he’s doing it right.

Davos Seaworth

He’s been through various kings and leaders and they all are heightened by his character’s wisdom. Davos is a crucial character, it seems that he takes care of people when they need it the most.

Liam Cunningham

Seeing him in normal clothing and with glasses help you realize that these actors are just that, people acting and playing a role.

Joffrey Baratheon

King Joffrey Baratheon has become one of the most haborred TV characters of all time. Viewers of Game of Thrones were wishing his death with all their strength, and for sure they were extremely  happy when it finally came.

Jack Gleeson

The Irish actor had small roles in Reign of Fire and Batman Begins before he approached the world of Game of Thrones, where he has become famous thanks to his role as Joffrey Baratheon.. The teenager decided to leave his acting career to go after his studies at university.

Brienne of Tarth

Brienne of Tarth has become a huge star on the show, she beats up tough guys and I’m not sure if there has ever been a stronger female character on TV since Xena Warrior Princess. Her character in the books was much smaller, but, thanks to the popularity she reached in the show, they decided to extend her part.

Gwendoline Christie

She is tall, ok, but her real personality is much more softer than the one of her character. She may be a larger woman in real life, but she cannot be compared to her character in GOT.

Olenna Tyrell

She is the mind behind some of the sneakiest moves in all of GOT. The powerful matriarch of the Tyrell clan is a fundamental  personality for the development of the story.

Diana Rigg

The actress used to be a gorgeous woman, and she still is a fascinating lady who hasn’t ruined her face with plastic surgery. She has been acting successfully since the Sixties, but never reached the level of success that she found starring in GOT.

Sandor “The Hound” Clegane

This character is fundamental in the evolution of Arya Stark and helped her to become such a badass. The body of this character is completely covered with serious burns, so who knows what the actor actually looks like?

Rory McCann

Such a metamorphosis! How many hours does it take to put on all that makeup? He looks like he is really burned. Look at this guy smile, how is this possible that this is the same guy who plays the Hound?

Lady Melisandre

She is a macabre old woman who is able to look young thanks to her magical necklace, the Red Woman is a character who led to the demise of many kings.

Carice Van Houten

How good the makeup artists are? The actress plays both the old and young red witch and she is so good at it!  What an actress, this is talking about transition: one minute you hate her and the next you lust after her.

Theon Greyjoy

This character has gone from adorable, to detested and now we feel bad for him, so what do you think is next for this troubled character? I don’t think any other character has gone through as much pain and changes as Theon.

Alfie Allen

On the show he’s changed so much, what a difference some wardrobe and makeup can make, he is almost unrecognizable from his character!

Obara Sand

She really has a badass look on her face all the time on the show, I’m sure nobody would like to mess with her.

Keisha Castle-Hughes

The costume really makes her look like someone you don’t want to mess with. She really disguises the soft and beautiful young woman she is beyond tough chick.

Rickon Stark & Osha

The story of the baby Stark boy Rickon and his Wildling caregiver Osha is completely absorbing, I’m very curious to see what is going to happen now that they have been captured by Ramsay Bolton.

Art Parkinson

He is a lucky kid, the Irish actor has recently began acting and one of his first roles was in legendary show like game of Thrones. Let’s see what’s coming next!

Natalia Tena

She acted in the Harry Potter movies, so Potter fans will recognize Natalia from her role there. She just acts in huge successful franchises, this is really good for her. The wildling makeup will surely hide a beautiful woman.


She is a mystical leaf, who protects the sacred tree. She is a fundamental character to Bran Starks evolution into the supernatural powered young man.

Kae Alexander

Here we can talk about serious makeup, she looks stunning. In real life is not at all part leaf.

Ramsay Bolton

The character is villainous and very vindictive, is famous for his sadistic torture techniques and evil ways. So, watch out people.

Iwan Rheon

He made himself a name with his role on the TV series Misfits and Vicious, but the 32 year old Welsh actor is best known for his role as Ramsay. He isn’t nearly as sadistic in real life as he is on the show, remember, it’s just fiction!

Petyr Baelish

He always seems to have his dirty hands in other people’s business, he is back for another season of pulling the strings on GOT. Who knows what he’s going to be behind this season.

Aidan Gillen

You may recognize him from another HBO critically acclaimed show, The Wire, and the Irish actor has had a very successful career in Hollywood too, before GOT. Now he is a leading man with his rough beauty.
