Don't Be Sad! Here Are 48 Out Of Character Images Of The "Game Of Thrones" Cast To Put A Smile Back On Your Face

That's it. It's over. We only spend 10 weeks with the cast of "Game Of Thrones" every year, but the show, the books, the whole discussion has become such a staple of our pop culture landscape that it seems like longer, no? But it'll be at least another 41 weeks until we see these folks again. And, spoiler alert, some won't be coming back at all. But buck up, little campers, don't be sad. The Thrones cast members are having a grand old time out of their wigs, plate armor and kirtles. More fun out than in, I'd wager. Let their mirth sustain you until next year.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • pratz

    When actors are so different from the characters they play on screen, it's when and only when you know how good they are.

  • Torgo3000

    That Arya and Sansa selfie (5th from the bottom) is the BOMB!

  • Maddy

    I know they're not real characters, I know this ... but the picture of Catelyn, Sansa and Arya makes me so sad. I need some kind of Stark reunion at some point or GRRM will be receiving a very strongly worded letter

  • Lisa

    I've seen that header picture multiply time and it always makes me happy.

  • RD

    this is brilliant...Well done Miss Joanna!

  • BlackRabbit

    If nothing else, Iain Glen and his bumbershoot will make me smile all day.

  • So the Starks aren't immune to not only betrayal, but also to that far more devastating phenomenon: selfie duckface.

  • King Push

    Conleth Hill with facial hair is such a strange thing...

  • Return of Santitas

    Just watched the movie that the pic of Mr. Bates and Varys came from...it also stars Roose Bolton as a gangster. Obvs I spotted Mr. Bates immediately, but it took me until the very end of the film to realize that I was also watching Conleth Hill, aka Varys the Spider. The guy is awesome, a total chameleon. Fuck, what is the name of the movie...Perrier's Bounty, that's it.

  • John W

    Imp Daddy.

  • Four Eyes

    Thank you for this! It shall soothe my parched soul for some time.

  • BuffyloGal

    Mr Bates? You think we wouldn't notice that Downton action creeping in? And what's with the gif of Ciaran Hinds? Looks like he's developing Parkinsons and that is not how one treats Captain Wentworth.

  • alannaofdoom

    That header picture! I cordially invite Gwendoline Christie to photobomb every picture ever.

  • The_Ghost_of_Bo_Crowder

    She's photobombed quite a few of these type shots if memory serves. She might as well embrace the concept because a 6'3" blonde isn't exactly going to lurk inconspicuously in the background.

  • shawnp

    Littlefinger and his kitteh!!!

  • Slash

    I think Game of Thrones geeks have officially surpassed both Star Wars and Trek geeks in terms of sheer dorkitude. NTTAWWT. Just sayin'.

  • Maguita NYC

    You say this as if it's a bad thing.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    The Red Woman looks so much better as a brunette. (Her really fake red hair is annoying to me on the show)

    The NYTimes Motherlode blog posted "5 Parenting Tips from Game of Thrones"

    http://parenting.blogs.nytimes...

  • Sherry

    Agree re: the Red Woman is so much better as a brunette--I actually hardly recognize her in most of these. Also, I read the header on one as "Missandei of Asshat." Kinda fits, no?

  • Zen

    Saw the picture of Michelle Fairley and the two girls and almost choked up, fer pity's sake. What a sap. Justashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashowjustashow...

    Nope. Didn't help.

  • Maguita NYC

    It does look like a family portrait doesn't it?

  • PDamian

    Marvelous casting. Both Maisie and Sophie look like they could be Michelle Fairley's daughters in real life. There's a nice mom-daughter vibe in those pics, too. Maisie has Michelle's wide-spaced, round eyes, and Sophie has Michelle's luminous skin and heart-shaped face. Lovely, all of them.

  • Rooks

    Yeah, Ciaran Hinds shaking his head like "Where the hell did my character go anyway??"

    These pictures are all kinds of wonderful.

  • John W

    Thanks for this.

  • Derreck

    Game of Thrones can be so dark and dour sometimes so it's great to see how much the cast members seem to love each other. Plus, on a shallow note, EVERYONE looks so lovely outside of their costumes.

    This post is totally lacking in Richard Madden though.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Specifically that gif of him biting his thumb.

    Guh.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I sincerely hope that whoever cast this show is called upon to cast the Outlander series that is coming up. They will have a huge challenge ahead of them and will require a very thorough knowledge of the available gorgeous, tall, ginger actors.

  • troublesometots

    Hair can be died. But please let him be a giant of a man who can pull of an authentic accent. People keep name dropping Chris Hemsworth but I'm hoping for somebody a bit less well-known.

    If they nail the casting I'll get Showtime just for this. Of course that won't be the explanation I give my husband as to why we're getting Showtime...

  • Mrs. Julien

    It's Starz, I think.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Oh, great. My lady already aggressively salivates while READING about that damned time-travelling ginger.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Technically, he doesn't time travel, everyone around him does to GET CLOSER TO HIM! Och, Jamie.

  • PerpetualIntern

    ....gorgeous, tall, ginger actors. I'll be in my bunk.

  • Heatseeker

    I don't know why I'm surprised, but holy crap, Sophie Turner is basically the most beautiful creature I have ever beheld. Maybe the way they do her hair on the show is unflattering, because I've always been like, sure, she's pretty enough... but in those IRL pictures she is breathtaking.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Some show these to George RR Martin. He needs to see how fast these kids are growing up and then get his ass in gear accordingly.

    And yes, I will continue to beat that dead horse.

  • I kind of love that, out of context, Alfie Allen looks way creepier than Iwan Rheon.

  • Travis_J_Smith

    People who say Emilia Clarke looks better as a brunette have no clue what they're talking about.

  • Travis_J_Smith

    I like that there's an even split between up and down votes on my comment.

  • Conor

    Also, dammit Momoa!

    Stop making the rest of us look bad, jeez!

  • Maguita NYC

    Momoaaann!

  • Mrs. Julien

    He looks Joshua Jackson's (RIP) Navy Seal brother in that photo.

  • Seriously, Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo was dream casting for me for a LONG freakin' time. I will seriously take any and all images that others may not want. Purely for the good of the realm, or whatever.

  • Conor

    My heart just grew 3 sizes.

    Also, to quote a great woman of our time, everyone on this show (OF LEGAL AGE and possessing ladyparts) can get it.

  • I'm so tickled by how Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner seem to be really good friends. Also, it's just really nice to see Lady Stark smile and laugh. Rare sight, that.

  • MissAmynae

    That picture of the 3 Stark Girls destroyed my cold little heart.

  • Afferbeck

    I wonder how some of these pics can have the actors showing such comraderie when they've never been in scenes together and thus probably never worked together. Unless it's just from seeing each other a lot at the press events they're getting photographed at.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    press tours, sure, but probably also hanging around in various remote locales when they aren't shooting .

  • koko temur

    most of them do not shoot even in the same countries. North of the wall scenes are shot in iceland, danny and kings landing are done in some ex-yugoslavia country which name i forgot just now and arya and robb scenes are shot in ireland. So its all press tour and probably the fact they all are super nice people who bond easily. Or alcohol.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Part of it is probably that they shot a few scenes together in some locale and then split off as their stories diverge - so when they see each other again they are quite happy to be reunited. Dany and Stannis would be the big outsiders - they've interacted with the other houses the least.

  • koko temur

    no, acually... Danys whole story is shot just across where they built Kingslanding. So off set she hangs around with the the biggest part of cast and crew. The outsider is Kit Harrington who has been in iceland for the past 2 seasons. man, shooting in iceland. That is insane.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Iceland is awesome. I took a 2 week vacation there a few years ago. Gorgeous country, and the weirdest churches you'll ever see.

  • koko temur

    ooooh, jelous! i want to go there too. Wouldnt want to work there, though. How weird are we talking about here?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Well...this is a church in Stykkisholmur, which is fairly nowhere
    http://tinyurl.com/q6kwhp2

    And Hallgrimskirkja in Reykjavik
    http://www.visitreykjavik.is/d...

    And this one not that far from Stykkisholmur:
    http://www.123rf.com/photo_136...

    I'm kind of bummed to realize that I don't have the digital files of my Iceland photos. My sister posted them to a picasa album that appears to be down now, so I'm going to have to bug her for them....

  • $32857398

    I imagine the fact that they don't get to work together but see each other's work combine later makes for great conversation on press tours and parties. I imagine a lot of arm grabbing and things like:

    "OMG YOU WERE PERFECT WHEN YOU FREED THE SLAVES OF ASTAPOR I DIED"

    "I CANNOT BELIEVE THEY KILLED YOU OFF LIKE THAT I WAS DEVASTATED"

    "OMG IT WAS SO AWESOME WHEN YOU TOLD TWYIN ANYONE COULD BE KILLED YOU'RE THE BEST"

  • AngelenoEwok

    Man, I wouldn't think it was possible, but lots of these people are even more ridiculously good looking in real life.

  • Right?? I can't even look at Richard Madden in regular clothes, it's too much.

  • Tinkerville

    Holy guyliner in that Jon and Dany picture, Batman! Not that I'm complaining, mind you. These are flipping adorable.

  • Scully

    Littlefinger And His Cat makes me forgive Aiden Gillen all the terrible acting.

  • This almost makes up for the Snidely Whiplashing of Petyr Baelish.

  • luthien26

    These are awesome! Love Finn Jones getting photobombed by Boba Fett and a Stormtrooper while he's riding on a fake cow. Because, why not? :)

  • Sherry

    Yes. I want to be wherever that is taking place. That is a world I could live in.

  • That header picture alone made my entire day.

    1. We were watching Zero Dark Thirty, and then suddenly Stannis shows up, speaking in a terrible American accent and it was just so completely jarring to see him smiling it took us right out of the movie.

    2. Look at Gendry up there, looking adorable without that ridiculous haircut.

    3. My husband's beard keeps getting redder and redder--I've started calling him Tormund Figsbane.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Jesus, that beard. (But not a Jesus beard.) I should very much like to have an, um, aerial view of it.

  • SilverDeb

    Watched seasons 5 & 6 of Doctor Who this weekend and was surprised to see Ser Jorah show up.

  • foolsage

    Davos and Edmure showed up together in an episode this season as well.

  • suzique-chu

    Davos was the father I wished I had back when he was the father of the Little Princess in the 90s. Made me completely biased since I first saw Davos

  • DarthCorleone

    Love these. Thank you!

  • He is dead and gone, lady,
      He is dead and gone,
     At his head a grass-green turf,
      At his heels a stone.

    SOBS.

  • Laura

    I want to be on this show.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I want to be at these parties.

  • Maguita NYC

    I want Richard Madden to braid my hair. Stark naked.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Every once in a while, you post something that sounds terribly erotic and I love that about you.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Well if we're going there I'd like to find out if Natalie Dormer maintains her smirk mid-coitus.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    Oh, she definitely does.

  • Maguita NYC

    Well then, I'd like to find out if Jon Snow truly goes... down there... With no preambles whatsoever.

  • AngelenoEwok

    I want to be best friends with all of them. We can go shopping and go out for pints and snark on twitter and it will be the best.

  • Genevieve Burgess

    I love that Sophie Turner is clearly such a goofy kid. Her reserve as Sansa and the fact that she's stunningly beautiful at all of 16 make it even more of a delight when you see her pulling faces at the cameras.

  • Eva

    The Kinlayer FTW!!!! The Kinlayer and the Kingslayer.... couldn't be more perfect.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Thank you!

  • Joe Grunenwald

    That fourth photo, of Dany and Ygritte, is the photo that launched a thousand slash-fics. Rose Leslie is goddamn gorgeous.

  • sean

    I don't even have to write or read such things. Those movies are now playing in my head.

  • Bert_McGurt

    It's like they're both luminescent.

  • As a cast, they look like they're having the best time. I love that. :)
