The Fades


After Skins, Joe Dempsie took up another role this time in the short lived BAFTA winning series The Fades alongside fellow cast member Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell). Only 6 episodes in length, these two characters are sure to scare the living daylights out of you.


If you haven't gotten sick of seeing Ramsay (Iwan Rheon), the not so lovable bastard from House Bolton, then you're in luck! He starred in Misfits as the mysterious outcast Simon. Though they never cross paths, Ellie Kendrick (Meera on GoT) appears in later seasons as Helen.

Tomb Raider

Iain Glen starred in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Ciaran Hinds (pictured on the left holding the ball, Mance Rayder on GoT) starred in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life . While Noah Taylor (pictured behind Jolie, Locke on GoT) starred in both flicks.



Not too long ago Suits had a British invasion of its own when Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark) and Conleth Hill (Lord Varys) took Pearson Hardman by storm.

In a homage to its guest stars, the show decided to create a GoT styled promo:

Harry Potter

Michelle Fairley also featured in the Harry Potter series. In addition, David Bradley (Walder Frey), Natalia Tena (Osha), and Ralph Ineson (Dagmer Cleftjaw, House Greyjoy) also feature in the film series.

Sarah Connor

Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) played Sarah Connor for 2 seasons on the FOX show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Emilia Clark (Daenerys Targaryen) will also play Sarah Connor in the film version of the Terminator.

Dr. Who


Last but not least, many Game of Thrones actors have made guest appearances on the hit show Dr. Who. You can check out which actors those were and what episodes they appeared in here:
