With so many character, it was only a matter of time for Game Of Thrones to start recasting some of their characters. Oddly enough, recasts started occurring as early as the very first season, some due to actors leaving for other projects, not realizing how big the show would become, others simply to have more experienced actors take over roles that would be less prominent at first. Here 10 characters that had different actors portray them in the series:
– Callum Wharry (Seasons 1-3)
– Dean-Charles-Chapman-Tommen (Seasons 4 – )
The Boy King was more of a background character in Seasons 1 to 3. When it came time for him to be king following Joffrey’s death, the producers decided to recast him with a more experienced actor. Oddly enough, they chose Dean Charles Chapman who had already played another Lannister in season 3: Martyn Lannister, Kevan Lannister’s second child, killed by Rickard Karstark as retribution for the death of his own son by the hands of Martyn’s cousin, Jaime Lannister.
