UNCAST Game of thrones characters

by Gilliam123 | created - 24 Jun 2012 | updated - 10 Jun 2016 | Public

As actors are cast for the series, I will remove them from my fancast list.


Any remaining uncast characters will need to be introduced in that book, as Season 6 is technically ahead of those two books, with some unused plots from Books 4 and 5 carrying across to Season 6.

I must state that I'm a way bigger fan of the books than the show, I only followed the last two seasons loosely, but I am following Season 6 as it happens.

Obviously this list will be updated as Season 6 happens, and updated again once The Winds of Winter is released.

1. Vladimir Kulich

Actor | The Equalizer

Vladimir Kulich is known for his work in The Equalizer, Vikings, 13th Warrior, Smoking' Aces, Ironclad,The X Files, and as the voice of Ulfric Stormcloak in one of the most successful video games of all time, Skyrim-The Elder Scrolls. He has given memorable performances opposite academy award ...

Victarion Greyjoy

Other Choices: Christopher Ecclestone and Richard Armitage

Victarion is Balon's second younger brother, and the Commander of Iron Fleet. Victarion is powerful but calm, and is likely to be one of the more 'grey' characters introduced in Greyjoy storyline.

2. William Moseley

Actor | The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

William Peter Moseley was born on April 27, 1987, in Gloucester, England, to Juliette (Fleming) and Peter Moseley, a cinematographer. He is the eldest of three children with a younger sister named Daisy and and younger brother named Ben. His father's name is also William's middle name.

He wanted to ...

Aegon Targaryen

Other Choice: Bradley Cox

Aegon is a huge twist in Book 5, and if he's not a major player introduced in Season 6 or 7 I would be very surprised. I won't talk about who he is here as that would be very irritating for people who haven't read Book 5.

3. Sean Pertwee

Actor | Dog Soldiers

Sean Pertwee was born into a famous British theatrical family. He is the son of Jon Pertwee, who was mainly a comedy actor and was known for his starring roles in Doctor Who (1963), Worzel Gummidge (1979), the radio comedy series "The Navy Lark" and appearances in several "Carry On" films. His ...

Jon Connington 'Griff'

Other choices: Tony Curran, Nathan Fillion and Liam Neeson.

Jon Connington is an experienced if slightly arrogant exiled lord. First appearing a little way into book 5, it is likely he will be one of the most major new characters in Season 6. It is very likely he will appear, as his storyline affects the overall plot a great deal.

4. Michelle Fairley

Actress | Game of Thrones

Michelle was born in July 1965, the second child of publican Brian and nurse Theresa Fairley. As a teenager she attended the Ulster Youth Theatre before moving to Belfast , where she was a member of Fringe Benefit, a repertory company where she acted alongside Conleth Hill, with whom she would ...

Lady Stoneheart

Stoneheart is the reincarnation of Catelyn Stark following her murder at the Red Wedding. Thoros of Myr brought her back to life, with Beric Dondarrion giving up his immortality so that she might live again. With Beric gone, Stoneheart becomes the new leader of the Brotherhood without Banners. If Stoneheart is to appear, it needs to be soon, so either a supporting role in Season 6 or very early Season 7.

5. Robert Carlyle

Actor | The Full Monty

Robert Carlyle was born in Maryhill, Glasgow, Scotland, to Elizabeth, a bus company employee, and Joseph Carlyle, a painter and decorator. He was raised by his father after his mother left him when he was four. At the age of 21, after reading Arthur Miller's "The Crucible," he enrolled in acting ...

Tom O'Sevenstrings

Tom is a member of the Brotherhood without Banners who plays the Harp. Having not appeared in Season 3 alongside Beric and Thoros, he may appear in Season 6 at the Frey camp alongside Jaime and Edmure, should the series choose to follow that route.

6. Brian Blessed

Actor | Flash Gordon

Boisterous British actor Brian Blessed is known for his hearty, king-sized portrayals on film and television. A giant of a man accompanied by an eloquent wit and booming, operatic voice, Brian was born in 1936 and grew up in the mining village of Goldthorpe in South Yorkshire. His father was a ...

Lord Wyman Manderly

Other Choices: Ian McNeice, Brian Cox, John Rhys Davies

A minor but colourful character in Book 5, Davos is sent by Stannis to rally Manderly while they're staying in the north. Although Manderly can't hold the same role he does in the book, there are ways he could come into play in Season 6, as a Stark-loyal Northern bannerman.

7. Sylvester McCoy

Actor | The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Sylvester McCoy was born Percy James Patrick Kent-Smith on 20 August 1943, the only child of Molly Sheridan and Percy James Kent-Smith, a couple living in Dunoon, Scotland. His mother was Irish. Percy James Kent-Smith was killed in the Second World War a couple of months before his son was born, ...

Maester Clydas

Clydas is the elderly maester at Castle Black. who replaces Aemon following his death of old age. He may be a minor character from Season 6 onwards.

8. Richard Wilson

Actor | One Foot in the Grave

Richard Wilson OBE (born Iain Carmichael Wilson; 9 July 1936) is a Scottish actor, theatre director and broadcaster. He played Victor Meldrew in the BBC sitcom One Foot in the Grave (1990). A later role was as Gaius, the court physician of Camelot, in the BBC drama Merlin (2008).

Wilson was born in ...

Septon Cellador

Septon Cellador is the alcoholic Septon of Castle Black. While he is yet to appear, he could be introduced as a minor character at any time as long as there is action taking place at Castle Black.

9. Ben Barnes

Actor | The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

British actor Benjamin Thomas Barnes was born in Cambridge, England, to Patricia (Becker), a relationship therapist, and Thomas Barnes, a professor of psychiatry. He has a brother, Jack. His mother is from South Africa while his father is English.

Barnes studied at Homefield Preparatory and King's ...

Aurane Waters

A young man on Cersei's council during the events of Book 4. At the end of the book, he steals Tommen's fleet, and sets himself up as a Lord of Waters. Although he should already have appeared, there is mention of his character in the Book 6 chapters that have already been released, meaning his character could come back into play. If he is to appear in this case, it is most likely it won't be until Season 7.

10. Richard Bremmer

Actor | The 13th Warrior

Richard Bremmer was born on January 27, 1953 in Warwickshire, England, UK. He is an actor, known for The 13th Warrior (1999), Les Misérables (2012) and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001).

Oswell Kettleblack

Oswell works for Littlefinger and is a member of the newly formed House Kettleblack. Having only a minor role in A Storm of Swords that would have happened in Season 4, it is unlikely he will appear. Howhever, he's still working in the Eyrie for Littlefinger in A Feast for Crows, so it's possible he may be seen.

11. Kareena Kapoor

Actress | Jab We Met

Kareena was born to Sindhi-speaking Babita (nee Shivdasani) and Punjabi-speaking Randhir Kapoor in Bombay, India. She has an elder sister, Karisma.

She is born in a family that have been actors for generations, including her paternal great-grandfather, Prithviraj Kapoor; her grandfather, Raj Kapoor;...

His first television appearance was in a commercial for Birds Eye beef burgers. His career has progressed from ...

Gerris Drinkwater

Gerris is a confident and arrogant knight who accompanies Quentyn Martell on his voyage to Mereen. Since that story line is unlikely to come into play in Season 6, expect Gerris to be introduced as one of the minor characters for Season 7.

14. Ray Stevenson

Actor | Thor

Tall, dark, but somewhat gentle-looking actor Ray Stevenson was born in Lisburn, Northern Ireland on 25 May 1964, on a British army base. His father was a British pilot in the Royal Air Force, and his mother is Irish. He moved with his family to Lemington, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England in 1972 at ...

Archibald Yronwood 'The Big Man'

Yronwood is a large, powerful quiet man who accompanies Quentyn Martell on his voyage to Mereen. If that story line comes into play this season, than expect Yronwood to be in Season 6 as a minor character, if not, he may be introduced in Season 7.

15. Hans Matheson

Actor | Sherlock Holmes

Hans Matheson was born in a caravan on August 7, 1975 at Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, located in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Shortly after, his family moved to Canterbury, Kent in England but Hans often spent his summer holidays on Stornoway with his grandparents. As a child, his parents Iain (Ado...

Hyle Hunt

Hyle is a young knight you accompanies Brienne and Pod until they're captured by Lady Stoneheart. As this hasn't happened yet, it's likely to happen towards the end of Season 6. There's space in the show for a new character in with Brienne and Podrick.

16. Kathy Bates

Actress | Misery

Multi-talented, multi-award-winning actress Kathleen (Doyle) Bates was born on June 28, 1948, and raised in Memphis, Tennessee.

Ben Brown Plumm

Other Choices: I originally imagined Alexander Siddig before he was cast as Doran Martell.

21. Julia Ormond

Actress | My Week with Marilyn

The dark and classically beautiful British actress and social activist Julia (Karin) Ormond was born on January 4, 1965, in Surrey, into England, the second of five children. Born of privilege as the daughter of a well-to-do laboratory technician, her parents divorced when she was young. Julia ...

Lady Allerie Tyrell nee Hightower

The wife of Mace Tyrell and the mother of Margery. Although both her appearances in the books are passed, it is possible she will appear as a minor character in Season 6 due to all the controversy surrounding Margaery and Cersei at the moment.

22. Kate Vernon

Actress | Malcolm X

Kate Vernon was born to the celebrated actor John Vernon. As her father's career began to take off in the USA, the family moved from their home in Canada to Hollywood when Kate was 7 years old.

Other Choices: I originally imagined Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje before he was cast as Malko.

Moqorro is a red priest who accompanies Jorah and Tyrion to Mereen, and then Victarion Greyjoy. With the Kingsmoot storyline most likely taking up a lot of Season 6, Moqorro will be introduced in Season 7, when Victarion attempts to make his way to Mereen.

24. Sam Claflin

Actor | The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

English actor Sam Claflin was born in Ipswich, England, to Susan A. (Clarke), a classroom assistant, and Mark J. Claflin, a finance officer.
