What's the best thing about watching Game Of Thrones? Reading everything about it after you've watched it! We know a lot about "Game of Thrones" characters: their likes and dislikes, their passions and fears, whether or not they're involved in an incestuous relationship, the number of dragons they possess etc. The performances are so captivating that we often forget that there are real people hiding beneath Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen. Often these actresses and actors have appeared in many other productions prior to their appearance on HBO's most popular series.

Take a look at this list, compiled by Bored Panda, and see if you can find your favorite GoT character before they arrived in Westeros.
