Which Game of Thrones character was a Baywatch hottie and which appeared in Ballykissangel?
Meet the Game of Thrones cast in their early roles
They have a stunning body of work between them but some of the Game of Thrones cast's early roles might surprise you...
Jason Momoa, who plays the formidable Khal Drogo, is hardly recognisable as a short-haired clean cut and rather more svelte Baywatch hottie.
Hawaiian actor Momoa (36) was cast as Jason Ioane in Baywatch Hawaii when he was a baby-faced 19 year old.

Someone's been working on their bulk. Jason in Game of Thrones.
Headey has accumulated a towering body of TV and movie work since 1992. In 1996 she even bagged a role in Irish set TV series Ballykissangel. Credited as Lena Heady she played Jenny Clarke in one episode, The Things We Do For Love.

One of British actress Emilia's first roles was in an episode of BBC TV series Doctors in 2009 when she was just 22.

And as the blonde Daenerys in Game of Thrones.
We've seen her in The Tudors, Elementary, The Riot Club, and The Hunger Games among myriad other roles, but one of her first big gigs was as Victoria in Casanova in 2005. She was 23.

Dame Diana Rigg

Before he was the murderous young King Joffrey on Game of Thrones, Gleeson played an adorable little blonde boy in Batman Begins.
Somebody needs a slap. Gleeson as the late not-so-great tyrant, King Joffrey.
Long before Love/Hate, The Wire, and even Queer as Folk, Aidan appeared in an episode of The Bill. In the absence of a shot from that gig from 1993, here he is playing Aidan Lynch two years later in Circle of Friends. That's a whopping 21 years ago.

And the curly mop is still intact as Littlefinger in Game of Thrones.
He's a towering 6'6" tall and the Glaswegian actor was a rather imposing presence in Hot Fuzz back in 2007 when he played a supermarket teller.
