This is How the “Game of Thrones” Characters Should Really Look

Over 6 seasons, the Game of
Thrones TV series, based on the series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire,
managed to collect millions of loyal fans who seem to know absolutely
everything about the inhabitants of the Seven Kingdoms. However, many of the
screen images are far from the book’s original creations.
We at Bright Side decided to
find out how the characters created by George R. R. Martin should look, and we
share our observations with you.
Daenerys Targaryen

On the book’s pages, the
Mother of Dragons had a classic Valyrian appearance: silver hair and violet
eyes.
Jon Snow

The book presents Jon to the reader
as a dark-haired, gray-eyed young man.

Bran Stark

George R. R. Martin decided
that Bran, as well as all his blood brothers, would inherit his mother’s
appearance: dark blue eyes and reddish brown hair.
Ygritte

According to the book, Jon
Snow’s only love has features that are quite different from the pleasant screen
image: bright red scruffy hair, a snub nose, and slightly crooked teeth.
Tywin Lannister

The head of the House of
Lannister was conceived as the owner of a mustache, beard, thick sideburns, and
a clean-shaven head.

Tyrion “The Imp”
Lannister

The Imp’s book version is very
different from his TV series image. To match the original source, Peter
Dinklage’s hair should be whitish, one eye should be black, the other — green.
According to the book, after the Battle of Blackwater Bay Tyrion lost
three-quarters of his nose and a part of his lip, but the producers decided to
confine themselves to just scars on his face.
Tommen Baratheon

King Tommen should have
appeared before the viewers as a plump boy with green eyes and golden curls.
Theon Greyjoy

In contrast with the TV
version, the book presents the heir of the Iron Islands as a dark-skinned,
dark-haired man.
Yara (Asha) Greyjoy

This is How the “Game of Thrones” Characters Should Really Look

In the TV series, Theon’s
sister changed not only her name (Asha to Yara) but also her appearance: she
should have had short dark hair, a sharp and large nose, and weathered skin on
her face.

Euron “Crow’s Eye”
Greyjoy

In the facial features of
Euron from the TV series we can hardly recognize his book version. According to
George R. R. Martin, he should have been a brunet with a neat beard, with his
right eye blue, and the left one covered with a leather patch.
Brienne of Tarth

In the TV series, Brienne was
often jeered at because of her unusual appearance. But there she doesn’t even
have the big mouth, crooked teeth, and freckled face as her character in the
book does.
Oberyn “The Red
Viper” Martell

Pedro Pascal, who played the
Prince of Dorne, corresponds to the book description pretty well, yet his hair
should be slightly longer and graying.
Ramsay Bolton

This is How the “Game of Thrones” Characters Should Really Look
The author tried to make
Ramsay’s appearance as awful and unpleasant as the character’s personality.
According to the original idea, the skin on his face was pink and pimply, his
nose was wide, his mouth — small, and his hair long and dry. He had close-set
washy eyes, which looked like two fragments of dirty ice.
Daario Naharis

In the book, one of the
commanders of Daenerys has blue hair and a trident-shaped beard of the same
color, while his mustache was painted golden.
Lancel Lannister

By the time Lansel became one
of the “sparrows” and appealed to the Faith of the Seven, his
appearance had changed a lot in the book: his hair turned white as chalk, and
his face became gray. The creators of the show decided to designate the changes
in his life with a new haircut only.
