It’s probably been a few years since you heard someone mention “Game of Thrones.”
The HBO smash success, based on the book series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin, was a pop-culture juggernaut when it aired from 2011-2019.
But, after a controversial finale, the hype surrounding the show has cooled, even though HBO just dropped the trailer for the prequel series “House of The Dragon” last week.
With no previous cast members returning for the prequel series, most actors have all moved on to other projects. Here’s a look at what the Westeros characters have been up to.
Kit Harrington / Jon Snow
Fans might remember that he started dating co-star Rose Leslie, who played Ygritte, Jon Snow’s love interest.
Although their star-crossed character’s love story met a bitter end, the real-life actor’s romance is a far happier tale. The couple married in 2018 and recently welcomed a baby boy in February 2021.
Sophie Turner / Sansa Stark
After starring as Jean Grey in “Dark Phoenix” and the “X-Men” reboot, she is now headed back into acting as she voices Prince Charlotte in the new animated series, “The Prince.”
Maisie Williams / Arya Stark
She recently starred in 2020’s “The New Mutants” and has joined the cast of FX’s biographical drama “Pistol.” The six-part limited series focuses on the “Sex Pistols” guitarist Steve Jones and the band’s rise in popularity.
Richard Madden / Robb Stark
Although he met a bitter end in one of the show’s earlier seasons, Richard Madden will also appear alongside Harrington in “Eternals.”
He has also starred in the 2019 film “Rocketman,” the war drama “1917,” and the upcoming TV miniseries “Citadel,” which is set to debut in 2022.
Gwendoline Christie / Brienne of Tarth
Known for her towering 6’3” physique, Gwendoline Christie is probably best known for playing the First Order Captain Phasma in the “Star Wars” sequel trilogy.
Although she quickly met her end in “The Last Jedi,” Rian Johnson‘s most controversial film to date, Christie has scored the role of Lucifer in the upcoming TV series, “The Sandman.”
Emilia Clarke / Daenerys Targaryen
Christie isn’t the only actress to join a galaxy far, far away. Emilia Clarke appeared in the Han Solo prequel film as Han’s first love, Qi’ra, in “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
The film ultimately proved to be a box office flop, but Clarke has gone on to appear in 2019’s “Last Christmas” and has confirmed her participation in the new Marvel project called “Secret Invasion.”
Peter Dinklage / Tyrion Lannister
After making many quips about his short stature during his time as the youngest Lannister sibling, Peter Dinklage will go on to play the titular character in “The Dwarf.”
The medieval period piece tells the story of a Machiavellian Dwarf who manipulates the prince he serves and brings the kingdom to the brink of ruin.
