What Your Favourite GoT Characters Were Doing Before They Were Cast? 

Game of Thrones has gotten pretty famous over the years, and when it comes to its cast, it always needed a fresh crop of actors as several of the show's characters keep dying throughout the series. The TV show is known for launching careers of many stars, but could you name all the characters who have starred in the famous tv series? Sorry, wrong question. No one could remember all the characters of GoT. Hell, I can't even name ten characters. I just remember their deadly faces. Well, that's the common thing in most of the characters. They all have deadly looks. But do you know what these stars were doing before they were selected to be a part of the show? I guess not. So let's turn the clock backwards in time and look what these actors were doing before they made it to the TV show that has gone viral.

1. Khal Drogo portrayed by Jason Momoa.

We're all aware of the famous Khal Drogo, who rode the Dothraki seas in the show and gets married to the most beautiful cast ever. Jason Momoa plays the character, who always has been a heartthrob. He initially appeared swimming the oceans of Baywatch Hawaii in the years 1999-2001.
