Worlds Collide: Every 'Game of Thrones' Star Who Was Also in 'Harry Potter'


For some reason, any time a sprawling fantasy epic gets adapted for the screen, the cast is packed with mostly British actors. With a story like Harry Potter, which is in fact set in England, that makes complete sense. However, with a series like Game of Thrones, which takes place in a make-believe place created by an American author, it's definitely more of a choice than a mandate. 

Nevertheless, since the UK film community is much smaller than Hollywood, you're bound to see some overlap between these two franchises. Here's every actor who has been to Hogwarts and Westeros.

1. Michelle Fairley

Michelle Fairley is well known for playing the role of Catelyn Stark, but she also had a brief appearance in the Harry Potter franchise as Hermione's mother. In Deathly Hallows Part 1, Hermione does a memory charm on her parents before hitting the road to find and destroy Voldemort's horcruxes.
