Your Mind Might Explode Seeing These ‘Game Of Thrones’ Actors Before They Blew Up And Got All Famous

On one hand, it’s got to the be the thrill of a motherlovin’ lifetime to get cast on Game of Thrones. On the other hand, it’s kind of a bummer, because you know the character you’re playing will probably be dead very soon. As we saw in episode two of season six, not even newborn babies are safe from meeting their maker. The baby’s all like, “Seriously? I literally JUST got here. This is bullshit!”

It’s also nuts that the new rulers get all excited when they’re handed the crown and the throne. It’s like, yo, bro, you’re gonna be toast in two to three weeks. Everyone is gunning for you. F*ck that noise. I’d rather be the dude behind the scenes, pulling the strings. Like Littlefinger with network of brothels or Varys, the eunuch, with all the informants. Actually nvm on being a eunuch.

I’m a sucker for these “Before They Got Famous” videos. It’s a reminder of how far people have come; of the long road they traveled to get to where they are now. Some have that “Huh. That’s muy interesante” moment with the chin-holding emoji while other cast members’ roles have your entire sense of reality shattered beyond repair. I mean, The Hound in a rom-com? He must’ve literally broken hearts.
