Whether you love Game of Thrones or you’re one of the few who hasn’t watched it and is proud of it – you can’t deny that Game of Thrones isn’t just another run-of-the-mill show. It’s a phenomenon. It’s so hugely popular that you probably won’t be able to find a person who doesn’t know about Game of Thrones. Even if you’ve never watched it or read the book, you still probably heard “the winter is coming” and realized it was a reference. Same goes for certain characters. You probably know who Jon Snow is or what he looks like. In fact you probably would be able to recognize most of the main characters. But did you know that these actors weren’t the only choices for these characters?
A lot of other actors and actresses were offered the role, and a lot of them auditioned. Some just didn’t get the part in favor of someone else, others just turned down the offer. Either way, it’s weird to think that the Game of Thrones cast could look any different, but it could. Let’s take a look at actors and actresses who could’ve played your favorite characters on Game of Thrones.
