The women of Game Of Thrones in real life

We don’t know about you, but we are dying to see what the characters from Game of Thrones look like in real life. With winter on its way, and the new season upon us, let’s celebrate all the women on the show, and see what they look like in real life, compared to their characters as the seasons have progressed. You’ll be surprised at how many of them are really friends in real life too, and that warms our heart. You might not recognize some of the characters without their luscious locks and hair gel and makeup, these photos are a lot of fun. We even love how some of the co-stars have found love on the show and the incredible relationships they have forged all these years on. With all the excitement over the coming series, take a look at these wonder women.

Carice Van Houten is an acclaimed Dutch actress, who has won many awards for her talents. In Game of Thrones Van Houten played the role of Melisandre of Asshai. Speaking of her role she said “I’m [Stannis’] right hand. I manipulate him. I take the decisions for him almost. I wouldn’t say I’m a very sympathetic character. I have a great wig, great red hair. I hope I did it right”.

There are many wigs used on set, and among the 30 or so hair pieces that the characters’ wear, they can cost up to $7,000 each! She is amazing in her wig we wonder if she misses it off set.
