Brace Yourself: 10 Actors to Expect in a 'Game of Thrones' Reboot

Rosamund Pike (Cersei Lannister)

Rosamund Pike (Cersei Lannister)

Besides looking perfect for the role of Cersei, Rosamund Pike's chilling performance as a wife willing to frame her husband in Gone Girl prepared her to portray the beautiful yet cold-hearted queen. Pike was also (literally) icy in Die Another Day as a double agent who romanced and deceived James Bond in a palace made of ice.

Making Kiernan Shipka's usually blond hair auburn is all that is needed to transform her into the lovely yet tragic Sansa. The young actress received rave reviews while dealing with family drama as Sally on Mad Men.

Ed Speleers (Theon Greyjoy)

On Downton Abbey, Ed Speleers played a young man who appeared to be an upstanding person but was devilish just beneath the surface. This acting experience would undoubtedly be helpful for the role of Theon Greyjoy, who is continually conflicted about his loyalties.

Bolger played the scheming Jade on Into the Badlands as well as aspiring queen Mary Tudor in The Tudors. Both roles make her a great choice for Margaery, who wants to be "The Queen," not a queen.

With significant roles in Mad Men and Once Upon a Time, cute Jared Gilmore has proved he's accomplished more than enough to portray Bran, whose paralysis coincides with his burgeoning mental abilities.

The role of Tyrion Lannister is the hardest to reimagine. Another actor who is a little person with impressive acting credentials is Jordan Prentice. He's had roles in the movie Mirror, Mirror as well as the critically acclaimed film In Bruges.

Isobelle Molloy played the titular role of young Maleficent in Disney's hit fantasy film. Like Arya Stark, Maleficent is concerned about her home and its inhabitants, thus giving her great background for playing the courageous and determined tomboy of Westeros.

Lily James (Daenerys Targaryen)

With experience as riches-to-rags-to-riches Ella in Disney's Cinderella, Lily James is perfect to portray the good-hearted Daenerys. As Elizabeth in Pride, Prejudice and Zombies James fought zombies, which is exceptional practice for conquering Daenerys's many enemies. Oh, and of course, she's gorgeous.
