Since Game of Thrones has captivated us from the get-go, and it’s not simply just the actresses’ tits and the CGI dragons that compel us to return week after week which make the show so epic to watch – it’s the roles the actors were cast to play.
Often times the casting has been so good it’s hard to distinguish the characters from the actors portraying them. So much so that it’s difficult to comprehend another actor filling any of the roles. Game of Thrones has already perfected the characterizations you’ve come lovingly to care for and even hate.

Yet, merely five years ago, no one knew what Jon Snow looked like, or that the Hound or Arya, and the other actors were skirmishing for their roles against hundreds of ravenous actors.
It’s hard to tell what precisely set them apart, but their auditions may demonstrate, and take you back to the show you’ve come to love so much.
