Game of Thrones: The Cast’s Previous Jobs before Westeros

Kathryn Whitworth| September 16, 2014

We have seen them rule, battle, and eventually plot each other’s death all to claim the Iron Throne in Westeros. The phenomenal HBO hit television series Game of Thrones is based on the best selling work of author George R. R. Martin entitled A Song of Fire and Ice. The series boasts a roster of incredible actors and actresses who all brought memorable performances to many of the book’s beloved characters.

One question that seems to be in every fan’s mind: What roles did they have before they were on Game of Thrones?

In a brief viral video, we get to see a glimpse of what their lives were like before they were on Game of Thrones.

Before They Were On Game Of Thrones

  •  Jerome Flynn as Bronn- Before landing the coveted role of Bronn, Flynn was part of a singing duo named Robson and Jerome which made many UK hits during the 1990s.
  • Jack Gleeson as Geoffrey Baratheon – People may have loved for this king to be dead, but in real life, actor Jack Gleeson is far from his despicable character Geoffrey Baratheon. Gleeson had his first acting stint in Hollywood as a little boy in the movie Batman begins as a little boy.
  • Rory McCann- Known for playing Sandor “The Hound” Clegane in the show, McCann was first seen as the quilt guy in the Scott’s Poradge Oats Commercial.
  • Michelle Farley- We know her as the fearless Lady Catelyn Stark from the North. But before she made it into Westeros, she had a rather memorable part in the Harry Pottter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 as the mother of Hermione Granger.
  • Natalia Tena as Osha- Before being casted as the role of the wilding Osha, this fierce lady also played an equally fierce role in the Harry Potter series as the auror Nymphadora Tonks.
  • Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister- You either love him or hate, before Dinklage came to Westeros as Tyrion Lannister, he provided the voice for James in the television series Seinfeld.
  • Julian Glover as Grand Master Pycelle- Just before he became Grand Master Pycelle, Glover was part of the Star Wars cast as General Veers in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
  • Aidan Gillen as Petyr “The Little Finger” Baelish- He is known today for playing the role of Little Finger in the series. But before that, he played the equally evil and conniving Lord Rathbone in the movie Shanghai Knights.
  •  Conleth Hill as Varys- Before playing the character Varys in the series, Hill acted out as Mr. Staefel in the movie Goodbye, Mr. Chips.
  • Mark Addy as Robert Baratheon- Before he played the loud and brash late King of the Iron Throne, addy was first seen as the lovable Fred Flinstone in the movie The Flinstones.
  • Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo- Before he became the king to the Dothrakis and husband to the beautiful Khaleesi Daenerys, Momoa starred as Jason Ioane in Baywatch Hawaii.
