14 Actors Who Played A Role In Both ‘Game of Thrones’ And ‘Star Wars’

The showrunners of Game of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, will produce the upcoming Star Wars motion picture, according to news that surfaced this week. This started us thinking. Who will they include in their film from the television show? Will Kit Harington appear in a galaxy far, far away? What about Maisie Williams or Sophie Turner? Then we came to remember… Actually, there are a ton of Game of Thrones actors already present in the Star Wars universe. We had to compile a lengthy list of them since there were so many.

The casting director for Thrones, Nina Gold, who also worked on all of the Star Wars films during the Disney era, is primarily responsible for this epic crossover of obsessive proportions. We felt compelled to recognize her for the excellent job she did fusing these two cultures. Below are the 14 actors that have starred in both Star Wars and Game of Thrones.

1. Emilia Clarke

Yes, the Queen of Dragons herself had a significant impact on the Star Wars saga. In Solo: A Star Wars Story, she served as Qi’ra’s first love. She wasn’t as much of a good girl as she originally seemed, much as in Game of Thrones.

2. Gwendoline Christie

In two of the new Star Wars movies, our favorite Brienne also portrayed Captain Phasma, a First Order chrome Stormtrooper.

3. Pedro Pascal

The Red Viper will play another fighter-type in the Disney+ series; this is a forthcoming project. He takes the lead this time!

4. Julian Glover

The only actor who took part in the first three films of the trilogy was Glover. He portrayed a villain in both settings.

5. Keisha Castle-Hughes

Castle-Hughes, an Oscar contender, portrayed a Sand Snake on Game of Thrones and Padme’s successor queen in the Star Wars prequel.

6. Jessica Henwick

When it comes to Star Wars, The Sand Snakes are 2-0. In The Force Awakens, Henwick also portrayed a Resistance pilot who aided Poe in destroying Starkiller Base.

7. Max von Sydow

In both of these grand fantasy settings, the seasoned actor had minor roles. He was an ally of the Resistance and Bran’s predecessor in Game of Thrones. Kylo Ren murdered him in Star Wars.

8. Ian McElhinney

Ser Barristan played a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it character in a Star Wars movie. In Rogue One, he appeared as the new Dodonna.

9. Thomas Brodie-Sangster

The Love, Actually child grew up to penetrate the geek world, appearing briefly as a First Order member in Star Wars and as Jojen in Thrones.

10. Mark Stanley

One of Kylo’s goons in The Force Awakens was also Jon Snow’s Night Watch acquaintance. We prefer to refer to him as the Grenn Knight.

11. Miltos Yerolemou

Additionally, at Maz’s Castle, Arya’s swordsman briefly appeared in a supporting role as an alien.

12. Emun Elliott

The singer who had his tongue amputated on Joffrey’s orders also has a small role in Star Wars as a member of the Resistance.

13. Liang Yang

The Stormtrooper that confronted Finn was played by Obery n’s stunt double for his battle with the mountain.

14. Spencer Wilding

Vader’s body was represented by two stunt performers, one of which was Wilding, who had appeared in Game of Thrones as a White Walker. James Earl Jones resumed the vocal role of Vader in Rogue One.
