Comments

As characters, everyone on Game of Thrones has been through some real rough shit. From beheadings (multiple), to wars, to death and back—it's been a long King's Road from Season One to Season Eight. Thankfully, despite less-than-ideal filming conditions, the real world has been much easier for these actors—some of whom have gone from fresh faces to bona fide stars since the series began. As we say goodbye to Game of Thrones this year, let's look back at where it all began in 2011, with these photos of the cast members whose characters have survived to the final season.
