See The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Cast In And Out Of Costume And Try Not To Get Totally Confused

Jump to Comments


Game of Thrones may be one of the biggest shows on television, but would you recognize the cast if they weren’t made up to look like some of your favorite players in Westeros?

While some of the actors on the HBO hit series look more or less the same when they aren’t playing Lannisters, Starks, Baratheons, and more, others look completely different.

After all, if the Mother of Dragons were walking down the street, her armor might give her away, but would you recognize actress Emilia Clarke if she was sporting her natural dark brown hair and a tee? Similarly, Jon Snow‘s curly locks and scruffy stubble are quite distinguishable, but would you be able to pick actor Kit Harrington from a crowd without them? Or how about Sandor Cleagane (better known as The Hound) without the left side of actor Rory McCann’s face made to look as though it has been burned away?

Clarke, Harington and McCann aren’t the only ones who look completely different out of costume. Check out what some of your favorite Game of Thrones actors look like when they’re not busy filming the popular fantasy series below:
