Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen

Clarke is hardly recognizable without her long blonde wig. When she's not busy being the 'Mother of Dragons," the British actress said she almost never gets recognized. "It takes a die-hard fan to actually spot me," she said.

Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister

The brunette actress sports a wig to play the scheming Cersei Lannister, but she still gets stopped on the street when not in costume. "I'll be in a store buying beetroot and they’ll come up and say, ‘You’re such a b—.’ Or they’ll say, ‘Just f— slap that kid for me,'" she said of fans who mistake her for her character.

Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy

Alfie Allen looks very different from his "Game of Thrones" character but he sure looks a lot like his real-life sister, singer Lily Allen. Lily Allen was asked to join the HBO show's cast but turned it down because the producers had offered her a role that involved sexual scenes with her real-life brother Alfie Allen.

Kit Harington as Jon Snow

Harington doesn't look so different from his "Game of Thrones" character Jon Snow but that's because he can't cut his hair. "It has its own contract definitely," he said on Live with Kelly and Michael. "I never thought I'd say that about my own hair."

Isaac Hempstead-Wright as Bran Stark

Gwendoline Christine as Brienne of Tarth

Christine's character in the "Game of Thrones" books is described as the "ugliest woman in all of Westros." The 6 foot 3 model is a far cry from "ugly" and her make under for "Game of Thrones" did give her a dressed-down look.
