We were just hit by the final season of The Game Of Thrones. Now, most of us are still recovering from it and still haven’t gotten used to the fact that the show is over!

If you are hardcore Game Of Thrones fans like millions of us, here’s something you would love to read. Check out how tall each of our favorite characters is and how different they look when they are on and off set.
Tyrion Lannister – Peter Dinklage
Tyrion Lannister is the smartest among the Lannister children, i.e., his twin brother (Jaime) and sister (Cersei) and him. In the show, his siblings do not forgive him for killing their mother during his birth. He may appear small, but he portrays a brilliant character on screen.

As the end of the story nears, she turns into a true hero by slaying and killing some the Nights King.

The character of The Waif was the one of a cold-blooded assassin, someone that was capable of showing no emotions. Without Waif, Arya Stark would never become The Faceless Man. The character troubles and torments Arya until she is fully capable of being a part of their cult. Waif was one of the main reasons why Arya Stark worked hard to prove herself to the Many-faced God, that, she was strong enough to be a cold-blooded assassin too.

Cersei Lannister – Lena Headey
We’ve all had mixed feelings about Cersai from the moment we saw her on GoT. She is a daunting mother and loves her kids to death, but she is also the evil Queen who can’t wait to set her next plot!
Either way, we cannot seem to get enough of her on the show.
Cersei is also in love with her twin brother Jamie and has had children with him.

1,70 m (5’7”)
Joffrey Baratheon – Jack Gleeson
Addressing the elephant in the room; we know that Joffrey was the MOST hated character in the series, ever! He had no respect people; he didn’t know how to rule, nor was he a soldier. Joffrey was an ill-mannered kid who was no king. His actions were horrendous, and he knew not how to be humble.
The fans of the series wanted him to be dead, and so when Joffrey was poisoned during his wedding celebrations, everyone was happy, and justice was served.
Jack Gleeson portrayed the role of Joffrey Baratheon in the series, and he did an incredible job at it.

You know nothing, Jon Snow!
But we sure do…
We know that we love his character; we love watching him on the show and the way his storyline had progressed! In the finale season, he was seen doing some commendable work. He even undertook the impossible job of killing Daenerys Targareon, his Queen, on the show. During his time as Jon Snow, the character was the Commander of the Nightwatch, and at some point, he was also the King of the North.
Kit Harrington was recognized worldwide for portraying Jon Snow; we wish him luck for his future endeavors,
1,73 m (5’8”)
Ramsay Bolton – Iwan Rheon
Ramsay Bolton is probably the second most hated character on the show after King Joffrey Baratheon. He killed, stabbed, and tortured people for his sadistic pleasures. He even captured the North defeating the Ironborn. In the process, he captured Theon Greyjoy and treated him like his slave. He forcefully got married to Sansa and tormented her. Ramsay was eventually killed when Jon Snow returned to the North and took back Winterfell.
The actor who portrayed Ramsay is Welsh and known as Iwan Rheon. He is a well-established singer, and despite his character on the series, his singing career escalated after the show.

Podrick Payne was a night which saved Tyrion Lannister’s life in the Battle of the Blackwater and then became his squire after that. After Tyrion was arrested for poisoning King Joffrey Baratheon, he served Brienne of Tarth. Initially, Brienne and Pod did not get along with each other, but as time passed by, they learned to work their way out.
Brienne even saved his life on several occasions when the duo was on their quest to find Arya and Sansa Stark. The character of Pod was one of an innocent man, who had a good heart and would often make childish mistakes and would get himself into trouble. Daniel Portman brilliantly portrayed this role.
1,74 m (5’8”)
Olenna Tyrell – Diana Rigg
Olenna Tyrell was an integral part of the show. Although she was assumed to be just an old woman, she was definitely more than that. In fact, she was the mastermind behind all of Margery’s moves and decisions. Additionally, she was the reason for Joffrey Baratheon’s death. When the Lannister army surrounded High Garden, Jamie Lannister himself killed Olenna; he ensured that her death was peaceful considering her seniority.
Diana Rigg, who portrayed the role of Olyenna aged gracefully. She was one of the few women who did not depend on ‘Plastic Surgery’ to make her look pretty or beautiful in any way.
1,74 m (5’8”)
Sansa Stark – Sophie Turner
Sansa Stark has been one of our favorite characters on the show. From a shy Stark girl, we have seen her grow into a confident young woman. She was mistreated when she moved to Kings Landing, and she was all alone there. Additionally, she was forced to marry several times; she was tormented and abused. In the end, Sansa was no longer the innocent child who was in love with Joffrey; she became a confident woman; she became the Queen of the North.
In reality, Sophie Turner is nothing like her character; she is much more upbeat of everything and quite fearless.
1,75 m (5’9”)
Theon Greyjoy – Alfie Allen
We all undergo a rollercoaster of emotions when we see Theon Greyjoy. Initially, we adored him, then we disliked him, and then we felt sorry for him when Ramsay Bolton tortured him, and now that we know that he joins the battle to fight for the starks -we love him again. Theon did not betray house Stark for the second time. Instead, he stood up to his word and protected Bran from the Whitewalkers until his last breath.
Alfie, on the other hand, who plays the character, is just a regular guy who will continue to work on tv after the show gets over.
1,75 m (5’9”)
Grey Worm – Jacob Anderson
Grey Worm is Khaleesi’s protector and Commander of the Unsullied. He is loyal to his Queen and obeys every command. He is also in love with Missandei. The duo would have made a perfect couple if things did not turn out so tragic and ‘IF’ Missandei was still alive. Perhaps the duo would have sailed to the Isle of Naath and lived the rest of their life happily.
Contradictory to his reel life, Jacob Anderson, is a rapper in real life. Yes, it’s true! He travels all over England for his performances. It’s hard to imagine him like that though, considering he looks so serious in the series.
1,75 m (5’9”)
Lord Varys – Conleth Hill
Lord Varys was the Master of Whispers in Kings Landing. He knew everything, and he would often use this information for good.

Once he found out the truth about Jon Snow, he betrayed his Quee, and she had him killed for treason. Even his closest friend, Tyrion Lannister, could not save him.
Although, in real life, Conleth Hill looks even more handsome than he does on the show, almost like a different person!

Petyr Baelish – Aidan Gillen
Littlefinger or Petyr Baelish is an exciting character on the show. We cannot decide whether to love or hate him.

Littlefinger betrayed Eddard Stark; he did not let Ned know that he was secretly working for the Queen.
Even before being a part of Game of Thrones, Aidan had a successful career in Hollywood. The Irish actor had a great fan following, and it only increased after the show. Additionally, he was also roped in for another HBO show called The Wire.

The truth that Ned revealed was that the children, Joffrey, Myrcella, and Tommen were not King Roberts. Instead, they were Jamie Lannisters.
The character Sean Bean played was famous and loved by everyone. When Ned Stark was executed, the fans were really disappointed. They did not expect him to die in the very first season of the show!

We disliked the hound initially, he was serving Prince Joffrey Baratheon and performed some torturous deeds. When Joffrey became the King, he was named the King’s guard. However, He was deserted from his post after The Battle of the Blackwater, and from then, he went on traveling alone by himself. He even helped Arya when she was in need. During the final battle, at kings landing, he fought alongside Jon Snow and Danaerys Targareon. Eventually, he traveled to the Red Keep to fight his brother and to kill him and seek his life-long revenge.
McCann looks very different in real life; we wonder how much time it took him to put on that makeup every day of the shoot.

Ser Gregor Clegane –
Ser Gregor Clegane is one of the tallest and the strongest actors. He belongs to House Clegane. He is also the brother of a notoriously fearsome warrior Sandor Clegane. Gregor and Sandor have been enemies for the longest time. Ser Gregor is called ‘The Mountain’ or ‘The Mountain that moves’ due to his large personality. In the end, Ser Gregor, who was Queen’s guard for Cersei, decided to take away his protection when he saw his younger brother Sandor. Both the brothers fought against each other and eventually fell to their death from the Red Keep.
In reality, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is born in Iceland and is a former basketball player, an actor and a ‘Strongman’ by profession.

Hodor – Kristian Nairn
We cannot get enough of Hodor on the show. He is sweet, kind, naive, and all the good things. He can speak nothing but one word, which is his name ‘Hodor,’ which we also finally come to realize on the show, means ‘Hold the Door.’ The only purpose of his existence was to save Bran Stark’s life and that he performed with all his might.
In reality, Kristian Nairn is a completely different person. He is a DJ who is 7 ft. tall and who used his performance as Hodor to grow his music career and named his tour ‘Rave of Thrones.’

Wun Wun – Ian Whyte
Jon Snow saved Wun Wun the giant’s life. He was a free folk and resided in Hardhome before Jon saved him and brought him to the South. He, in turn, helped Jon protect the wall from the white walkers! When the Wights start attacking the living. Wun Wun destroys them by holding a burning log all by himself. Along with some other wildings he leaves for Castle Black to settle a gift. Most people are scared and intimidated by seeing the giant.
Ian Whyte, the individual who plays Wun Wun, used to play basketball, but currently, he is a stuntman.
