Age Investigation: How Old Are the Game of Thrones Characters — and Actors?

May 5 2016 - 11:55am

Every once in a while, Game of Thrones [1] makes us cringe or emotionally scars us for life [2]. But that doesn't stop us from coming back for more. Through all these seasons, one thing that's really stuck out is the age of each character. While the show ages for these characters may not be so wildly inappropriate, it's still fascinating to know how old they all are when the books begin, as contrasted by how old the actors who play them are in real life. It'll definitely change your perspective, especially when you think of some of the marriages and sex scenes that have been on this series.
