What the 'Game of Thrones' Stars Were Doing Before They Got to Westeros


With the exception of Sean Bean and Peter Dinklage, most of the Game of Thrones cast was relatively unknown before the HBO series came to be — at least to American audiences. Though a few were staples on British TV, Game of Thrones is definitely their most well-known project to date. For a few, like Kit Harington, Maisie Williams, and Sophie Turner, it was their first screen role ever.

Now that winter has come and gone, we thought it would be fun to take a look even farther back to what some of the actors did before they came to Westeros. However, in some cases, we're guessing they'd probably rather we didn't.

Khaleesi didn't have too many acting credits before nabbing the role of Daenerys Targaryen, and if we were her we'd like to forget starring in Triassic Attack. It's a Syfy network B movie in the spirit of Sharknado only less entertaining. Also Emilia's supposed to be Native American in it? So, yeah... that happened.
