    Both

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Game of Thrones

    Though clearly menacing enough to have played a dastardly Slytherin, Lloyd only appeared in Game of Thrones as Dany's downright evil older brother, Viserys Targaryen.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Neither.

    Though she'd clearly have been brilliant in either of them, as yet Swinton is one of the few British actors to have avoided both of these monster franchises.

  9. 9. Timothy Spall.

    Harry Potter

    Yet to appear in Westeros, Spall of course played former rat and helper of Lord Voldemort Peter Pettigrew.

    Jason Merritt / Getty
    Correct!

  19. 19. Dame Judi Dench.

    Tim P. Whitby / Getty
    Correct!

    NIKLAS HALLE'N / Getty
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Both
