Game of Thrones is one of the TV events of the century, with a huge fan base and compelling characters. It has made the careers of many of its cast members, including Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Kit Harrington, Emilia Clarke and others. The show may be notorious for unexpectedly killing off its characters, but the exposure its actors get is invaluable. It’s why it’s one of the most sought-after gigs in showbiz. However, not every actor is waiting in line to be on the show. There have been actors who were not so keen on being potentially killed off or tortured. Here are some actors who refused Game of Thrones roles. #GameOfThrones #HBO #Actors Tamzin Merchant | 0:00 Jennifer Ehle | 1:02 Jamie Campbell Bower | 1:35 Brian Cox | 2:08 Dominic West | 3:20 Gillian Anderson | 4:09 Jonathan Pryce | 4:53 Perdita Weeks | 5:48 Ray Stevenson | 6:35 Lily Allen | 7:22 Read Full Article: 🤍🤍looper.com/37518/actors-refused-game-thrones-roles/
Brian Cox and Jonathan Pryce are LITERALLY the only two names I recognize or care about. And one of them actually MADE it on the list. We missed out on absolutely NOTHING! Best cast ever in every role.
Biggest fumble.....Brian Cox. He would have been awesome!!!
The actors were casted perfectly and were awesome. They are all such good actors....Honestly everyone's delivery was iconic!! So glad there was no Tazmin!
Ray Stevenson would have been phenomenal in the series.
I love actors that can say I stuffed up ⬆️ lol
Lmao Brian Cox just going on about money
How could anyone say their career was not hurt by turning down a once in a lifetime role
Well then thank god they did cause I can't imagine any of other people replacing the original cast. They were the best at their jobs.
The whole got cast was perfect and emilia was cherry on top
Well some actors and actresses don’t want to be cast as whores while other’s have no problem getting naked for the whole world to see
Tamzin Merchant didn't drop out.. she was let go. HBO didn't like the pilot and replaced some actors. She claims she is happy not getting the part because she doesn't want to be rich and famous BUT i never heard of an actor saying that. She is probably really sad she didn't get the part and didn't want to be embarrassed. I do think Jennifer Ehle would've been a better choice for Catelyn Stark but i probably just didn't like the role at all. She was my least favorite character in the whole show. George R.R. Martin knew he wanted Peter Dinklage. He said he wouldn't go forward without him. Peter was perfect and plays every part in every role perfect!!
Jennifer Ehle would have been excellent as Caitlyn Stark, I didn't particularly like who played her. Emelia Clarke perfect as Dani though.
Amelia Clark has such a beautiful face, nobody else could have been dani
There's a lot of shows that could be great if they had the right actors. But they don't and thats why they fail. Imagine breaking bad without cranston.
I hope Brian Cox will be in House of Dragons!!!!!

I'm so glad Tamzin Merchant wasn't on the show. I couldn't stand her on The Tudors.
If anyone could have been replaced it would be Rhaegar. He is described as being beautiful and all Targaryens as ethereal. Jamie Campbell Bower would have been good, especially if they didn't use the same scraggly wig that Viserys used.
Ray Stevenson would fit right in.
not sure which character though.
he was a great Black Beard
Sometimes it's our side of the multiverse that gets things right.
