Ah, it’s time to leave the “t*ts and dragons” behind and enjoy a little romantic comedy brought to you by the heroes and villains of Game of Thrones. If you’re a diehard viewer of the show, it’s weird to see Game of Thrones actors in other roles, much less Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) trying to get into a lady’s pants.
Even better is Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) as a hipster Valley Boy coffee shop employee in A Case of You. His comedy hand is quite strong. Lena Headey (Cersei) has done her share of romcoms, but surprisingly so have Michiel Huisman (Daario) and Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H’Ghar). Two of the Game of Thrones cast have starred in classic romcoms: Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Jojen Reed) was Liam Neeson's scene-stealing child in Love, Actually and Natalie Tena was the object of Max’s affection in About a Boy.GoT actors in other roles make you consider what their lives might have been like had the books not been turned into a television series. Would Nikolaj Coster-Waldau have gotten the opportunity to get a sex bruise or grow boobs from hormone treatments without his success as Jaime Lannister? We’ll never know. But that doesn't mean we can't vote up the GoT actors who are most believable in their romcom roles.
Romcom Role: Sam
Sangster plays the cutie cute cute kid to Neeson’s grieving father. Oh, and he’s totally in love.
