Here’s What The Stars Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Are Doing Now


What are those Game of Thrones stars doing now, anyway? Wouldn’t you just retire if you were on the greatest fantasy TV series of all time? Well, the Thrones actors have not retired. And, if you haven’t seen them in anything since GoT ended in 2019, let us clue you in.One of the most fun things about being a TV fan is watching unknown actors become stars before your eyes. Game of Thrones did that for multiple actors. Leads like Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington have parlayed their collective success into many other projects. But it’s not just the stars who’ve enjoyed their run on the show. Some actors who only appear in a few episodes (like Jason Momoa or Jessica Henwick) have seen their careers jump started thanks to GoT.

So let’s catch up with the cast. Stars and unknowns alike, the cast of Game of Thrones are on to (hopefully) bigger and better things.

 

Emilia Clarke

Role on Thrones: Daenerys Targaryen
Upcoming projects: Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull on the London stage

Perhaps more than any other actor on Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke is identified with the show. It’ll take years for her to shake Daenerys from her identity. She’ll have to play another iconic character, like Harrison Ford once did. It hasn’t happened yet, but Clarke has been busy since Thrones ended in 2019.

In the years leading up to the Thrones finale, Clarke was a hugely in-demand actress. And she managed to balance her GoT schedule with movie work and her recovery from two brain aneurysms. She’s appeared in two giant franchise movies, Terminator Genisys and Solo: A Star Wars Story. And, in 2019, she released two films, in addition to GoT Season 8. Now, with Dany in her rear view, Clarke has her eyes set on the London stage. She’ll play Nina in director Jamie Lloyd’s staging of the Chekhov classic, The Seagull, at London’s Playhouse Theatre beginning in March.
