This actress has been turning heads since portraying Anne Boleyn in “The Tudors.” Needless to say, Natalie Dormer will continue to turn heads as she is a talented actress and has joined the cast of some pretty big productions. Dormer joined the two final installments of “The Hunger Games” trilogy. On TV, the English actress is also featured in, ironically, the American detective series, “Elementary” which is based on the legendary English detective Sherlock Holmes.
It seems like Dormer is content to keep working in the American showbiz industry as she took a central role in the spin-off to the American series “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.” Like her character in “GOT,” looks can be deceiving – Dormer is no angel in the horror series.
Mark Addy – Robert Baratheon
Though we had such a short time with this character, King Robert Baratheon, everything started with this character. All the plots, intrigues, and sly dealings took place because of Robert Baratheon. We may have had only one season with Robert Baratheon, but English actor Mark Addy did such a great job portraying this character that we will never forget his big personality and presence.
Addy has been around for a while, and some of his most classic performances were in “The Full Monty.” Addy was nominated for a BAFTA award for his role in this film. Since his exit from “GOT” after the first season, Addy joined the cast of the period film “Downton Abbey” and starred as Hercules in the series “Atlantis.”
Isaac Hempstead-Wright – Bran Stark
Most of us still can’t believe what went down in the finale. And we’re pretty sure Bran Stark is just as surprised as us. The finale will definitely give us plenty to discuss. And much of that discussion will center around the figure Bran Stark. Unfortunately, we really can’t give any spoilers on this topic, but we can tell you a little about Isaac Hempstead-Wright – the actor who brought Bran Stark to life.
Born in 1999, Isaac Hempstead-Wright is an up-and-coming actor and has plenty to look forward to, especially since he gave us such as great performance as Bran Stark. Since “GOT,” the actor made the cast of the Sci-Fi “Voyages” and had a role as a voice actor in the animation “The Boxtrolls.”
Sean Bean – Ned Stark
The early exit of this respected and beloved character showed viewers that “GOT” was something completely new – a show with really high stakes. “Game of Thrones” is one of those series that had the highest stakes – all to sit on the Iron Throne. And the beloved Eddard “Ned” Stark was simply collateral damage. The face behind Stark is the actor Sean Bean, who hardly needs an introduction.
In fact, Bean is an internet sensation as he has been the face of several memes and jokes. Following Bean’s early exit from “GOT,” the actor has been in a whole range of series and films. In 2021, he starred in the TV adaptation of Bong Joon-ho’s “Snowpiercer" and, in 2023, was cast in a main role in the fantasy film “Knights of the Zodiac.”
Sophie Turner – Sansa Stark
Like many of the “GOT” characters, viewers had complicated relationships with these fictional personas. Sansa Stark is one of them. She is the eldest Stark sister – and from the get-go, we’re on the Stark’s side. But not really Sansa’s. Only an immensely talented actress like Sophie Turner could bring the necessary depth to Sansa. Turner was so good in the role of Sansa Stark that she was nominated for an Emmy award for her performance.
And with such a natural gift for acting, Turner’s career has taken off. She’s appeared in several main roles since “GOT” including portraying the superhero, Jean Grey, in “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Dark Phoenix.” Other important developments for Turner include marrying musician Joe Jonas and welcoming two children into the world.
