Game of Thrones Cast Aging and Transformation for Roles

Are you a fan of Game Of Thrones like millions others? You love the characters at times, you hate them at times, but no matter what, you just want to keep watching the Epic TV Marvel that has broken all barriers of being the Best TV show ever.

The performances often make you forget that there are real people hiding beneath ‘Daenerys Targaryen’, ‘Jon Snow’ and ‘Cersei Lannister’. Often these actresses and actors have appeared in many other productions prior to their appearance on HBO’s most popular series. Take a look at the Game of Thrones cast, and see if you can find your favorite GoT character before they arrived in Westeros.

1. Jason Momoa As Jason (In 2003’s Baywatch) And As Khal Drogo (In GoT)

Jason Momoa is an American actor and model. In 1999, he won the Title of Hawaii Model of the Year, which won him a role on Baywatch Hawaii. He is best known for playing the role of Ronon Dex for four years on Stargate Atlantis.

In 2008, Momoa had reconstructive surgery after having his face slashed with a broken beer glass. His attacker is currently serving a five-year sentence.

He starred in Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo. He was the last actor cast for the pilot, although not the last announced. Throughout his tenure on the show, Momoa did not appear in the opening credits, instead receiving an “Also Starring” credit at the end of each episode in which he appeared.

  1. The performances make you so engrossed in the story that you often forget that there are real people hiding beneath Daenerys

  2. Most of these are stupid. Ofcourse they look different, when there is 20 -or much more years between photos. 😀 You should have put pictures just before their roles and with in the roles.

  3. Confused about Gwendoline on

    If Gwendoline Christi doesn’t know her age then why does her Date of Birth appear on so many other websites and articles?

  4. Jaqen H’ghar ( Tom Wlaschiha ) is my favourite. Most of the pics were taken when these actors were kids or wore costumes from other projects so they look different obviously.

  5. Liam Cunningham played Sir Agravaine in First Knight. The Onion Knight is the nickname of GOT’s Ser Davos.

  6. Johndoe Nigerson on

    Unbelievable as a country that poses itself as the owner of the world, hire, encourage, and pay an idiot to become a papersboy/newspaper seller (light years far from be a journalist), posing as one, scribbling (in a pathetic manner) weak articles on futile subjects (such as a five- or ten- years old child changes when it becomes an adult … seriously?). It suits perfectly into the Green Day’s 2004 song…American Idiot). Good work, boy. Well done.

      • Every country has its idiots. I’m sure yours are just FULL of genius’ if your use of logical fallacies in your reasoning is any example. Yes the guy is stupid. Yes we have a president that many don’t like. That doesn’t make the country full of idiots. Nice job being exactly what you’re calling others you jackasses.

        • Johndoe Nigerson on

          You’re exactly the best example of what I’m exposing here … just like the lyrics of rock band from Berkeley, California, at no time did I imply that the Country is full of idiots (just a perfect typical one, like yourself, to think this way) … go figure. By the way, you poor little thing, my ancestors were simple pilgrims who left the port of Southampton on the Mayflower in 1620. So, i surely can say the current president it is Donald Duck !!!

  7. Lady Not so Gaga on

    It’s actually shocking to see some actors transform so much for these roles. I have only respect for all those who work so hard.

  8. Well well well, who can ever forget Khal Drogo. But seeing him in his young days, he kind of looks Gay! So sad, I have to see him in such a metrosexual way, he was so masculine and so wild just a few moments back.

  9. LOL! Peter Dinklage aka Tyrion Lannister has definitely mastered ‘That’ expression of being surprised. He has been that surprised so many times in his stellar career that it is hilariously awesome. The short man by size but very tall in his stature.

  10. wow sansa ve changed tremendously. the credit also goes to the real-time ageing of all the actors. the kids have really grown big and mature.

  11. Haha.. When the ‘Before’ look more modern than the ‘After’. Some of them look like losers actually.
