Don’t worry if you haven’t seen the last episode of Game of Thrones, there are no
spoilers here! We’ll discuss the dramatic ending later. For now, with the series
coming to an end after a nine year run, we want to pay tribute to some of the cast
members who made the first few seasons so special, but whose characters
unfortunately died too soon.
So what are these old cast members up to now?
Ned Stark- Sean Bean’s character faced an early heartbreaking end during the
first season of GoT. You can still watch this beloved star in his new series Curfew
which revolves around anarchists seeking to drive their way to freedom.
we all witnessed the demise of the original King of the North, played by Richard
Madden, was one of the most unexpected GoT deaths. Madden is making his
return to our screens this December in the WW1 movie, 1917. Stay tuned!
Margaery Tyrell- This conniving leading lady who died an untimely death was
brought to us by the gorgeous Natalie Dormer in GoT. Dormer will soon be
starring in the Penny Dreadful: City of Angels horror series.
Robert Baratheon- This stubborn king’s death brought about most of the chaos
we see in GoT. Actor Mark Addy has since been resurrected in other shows in
more peaceful roles, starring in The Runaways and voicing Clyde the horse in
Mary Poppins Returns.
Loras Tyrell- Finn Jones, who starred as Loras Tyrell and perished in the
wildfire along with numerous others, has since been contributing to the
international world of Marvel, starring in Iron Fist, The Defenders and Luke Cage.
Khal Drogo- The spectacular actor, Jason Momoa, who was exquisite in GoT as
Khal Drogo, wowed us as Aquaman and was more than ready to amuse us with
his performance in The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.
Stannis Baratheon- Stephen Dillane’s character, Stannis Baratheon, eventually
lost his life at the hands of Brienne of Tarth. You can catch Dillane alongside Mel
Gibson and fellow GoT actress, Natalie Dormer, in the recently released The
Professor and the Madman.
Catelyn Stark- Michelle Fairley who exceeded all of the audience’s expectations
in her outstanding role as Catelyn Stark is striking back with another wonderful
performance in an American web-series called The Feed.
Joffrey Baratheon- Playing GoT’s most hated character, Jack Gleeson delivered
such an outstanding performance that we were shocked when he announced he
would not be returning to our screens. He has instead decided to shift to the
world of theatre, performing mainly on stage in Dublin.
Viserys Targaryen- Harry Lloyd known in the GoT world as Viserys Targaryen
was killed off in the first season and is now back as Charles Xavier for the third
season of Legion.
Renly Baratheon- Gethin Anthony, known for playing Renly Baratheon, the
charming husband and ally of Margaery Tyrell is currently playing Enyalius in
the new season of a fantastic fantasy series The Magicians.
