The role was originally given to Tamzin Merchant, who has starred in Pride & Prejudice and the show ‘The Tudors.’ After filming the pilot episode, Merchant left the show & Clarke became the feisty dragon queen.
2. Hodor is a DJ in real life
Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor, is a multi-talented man. The 6’10 actor is also an accomplished DJ, sings, and plays the guitar.
Peter Dinklage, who plays sharp-witted and scheming Tyrion Lannister, is a vegetarian in real life. Any time you see him eating meat on screen, it’s actually tofu.
Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey Baratheon, is currently studying theology & philosophy at the distinguished Trinity University in Dublin. Gleeson has said that after the series ends, he wants to pursue a career in academics rather than acting.
Jason Momoa, who plays Khal Drogo (RIP), started his acting career in 1999 with a role on ‘Baywatch.’ He was also named Hawaii’s Model of the Year in 1999. I don’t hate it.
Sebil Kekilli is known on the show as Shae, Tyrion’s love interest; however, she used to be an adult film actress in Germany.
Oona Chaplin, who plays Robb Stark’s wife (apparently her name is Talisa? Did anyone else somehow never catch that?), is the granddaughter of the famous silent film actor Charlie Chaplin. She also dances ballet, salsa, and flamenco.
Lily Allen’s brand new track “Hard Out Here” is available to download on iTunes now here: http://smarturl.it/HardOutHere?IQid=vevoyt Watch the video here: ht…
Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy on the show, is the younger brother of British pop star Lily Allen. She even wrote a song about him!
Bronn, Tyrion’s witty sellsword companion, is played by Jerome Flynn, who used to be one half of British duo Robson & Jerome. The pop stars had three #1 singles in the UK in the 90’s. I wonder if they ever jam the album on set?
