Part of the allure of George R.R Martin’s fantasy realm is the sheer number of memorable characters.  Fans are commonly in love with many of the major characters such as Jon and Dany but even the minor characters have a role as well!  The world of Westeros (and Essos!) is filled with amazing personalities and the actors that round out this amazing cast bring them to life in a way we would have never thought possible.

Here at HBO Watch our team of writers has taken on the task of featuring each of these incredible characters in a stand-alone article about some of our favorite personalities.  Below you’ll find a list of characters from the series with links to those we’ve had the chance to feature.  We hope to have articles for all of the Game of Thrones cast members as time goes on.  Until then we’ll just refer you to a wikipedia entry for that character if you’d like to learn more in the mean time.  If you see a Game of Thrones cast member that you’d like to write about feel free to check out our author sign-up page and show us your skills!  (Characters whose names are links have been completed already – give them a read!)
