The impressive cast of a series often changes. Sometimes it goes unnoticed, and sometimes it is quite surprising for the audience.
Bright Side has gathered the most important changes in the popular TV series Game of Thrones.
P.S. There is a little surprise that explains a lot at the end of the article.
9. Daario Naharis
8. Beric Dondarrion
Australian actor David Michael Scott played Beric’s part in one scene in season one. Later, in season 3, he was replaced by Richard Dormer. No official reason was given.
7. Three-eyed Raven
The role of Three-eyed raven was first played by Struan Rodger, but he was never shown up close. In season 5, Oscar nominee Max von Sydow took his place, a decision the fans were happy with.
6. Tommen Baratheon
In the first 2 seasons, Cersei Lannister’s son was played by Callum Wharry. When his role was expanded in seasons 4 and 5, the creators of the show decided to change the boy for a more mature and experienced actor. Their choice fell on Dean-Charles Chapman (who played Martyn Lannister in season 3!).
5. Selyse Baratheon
We only saw Sarah MacKeever as Stannis Baratheon’s wife in a single scene of season 2. Later, when Selyse was “promoted” to the main cast, the actress was changed to Tara Fitzgerald.
4. Dickon Tarly
Freddie Stroma was playing Dickon in season 6, and it was planned that he would continue. However, because the actor was also filming Time After Time, he had to leave the show. This is how Tom Hopper became the face of House Tarly.
3. Night King
In seasons 4 and 5, Night King was played by Richard Brake. It was he who turned Craster’s son into a White Walker and commanded the army in Hardhome. Starting from season 6, he’s played by the Slovakian actor Vladimir Furdik.
