21 Fun, Obscure Facts About The Cast Of ‘Game Of Thrones’



LINK

Nothing overly interesting but some gems in there. Anything to shorten the time till Sunday...

quote:

8. You may also know Julian Glover (Grand Maester Pycelle) from his role in Empire Strikes Back. Also, Indiana Jones (if I’m late on this, sue me. It shocked the hell out of me.)


quote:

18. It is so weird, but Mark Addy — who plays Robert Baratheon — is most recognizable outside of Game of Thrones as the fat guy in The Full Monty.


quote:

19. Oona Chaplin, who plays Robb Stark’s new bride, Talisa Maegyr, is the granddaughter of Charlie Chaplin. CRAZY.

I actually know him from a Knight's Tale.

You are late on it, but I won't sue you. Probably couldn't get anything out of you.

3. Alfie Allon (Theon Greyjoy) is the brother of pop singer Lily Allen.


And her song "Alfie" about her slacker, pot smoking brother is about him as well.

This for sure, he's just a more serious version of that same fat guy from a knight's tale with a wine and women problem.

17. You didn’t see much of him in Harry Potter, although his name is very famliar, but Stephen Dillane (Stannis Baratheon) is the real-life father of Frank Dillane, who played Tom Riddle


Awesome.

Stephen Dillane also played Thomas Jefferson on the HBO mini-series John Adam.

Sounds like a description of me minus the fat part.

#16 is pretty cool. Jojen Reed is Ferb. Good stuff.

I knew the wildling and Tonks were the same person...the singing threw me off a bit.

Alfie Allen being related to Lily Allen surprised me. They both have very different features; she's brunette and kind of olive skinned and he's a ginger .

Sophie Turner being blonde shocked me. Either way, she's gorgeous.

And I had no idea that was Maester Pycelle in Star Wars and Indy .

Is anyone else going to post that, seeing that it has been posted in the thread three times and was also in the link?
