Want to see some cool pictures of the Game of Thrones actors when they were younger? Well, thank The Seven because this is the photo gallery for you.
Who knew Olenna Tyrell, everyone's favorite sassy grandmother, was a bonafide hottie back in the day? And just wait until you see Pedro Pascal and Khal Drogo in their younger years. They were still smokin', don't worry. Then there are the GoT character actors who've been around forever, like James Cosmo (Jeor Mormont) and Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon). They certainly looked different before they joined the world of Westeros!
Game of Thrones casting is likely no easy feat, given the vast world created by George R. R. Martin. But of the countless Game of Thrones cast pics on the internet, these pictures of GoT actors younger are some of the most interesting. Take a look at this list to see what the citizens of Westeros looked like before they began playing the game of thrones.
