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

Apr 27 2015 - 1:20pm

Every once in a while, Game of Thrones [1] makes us cringe, and this week has a prime example, when Margaery beds young king Tommen . . . who's 7 years old in the books. OK, the show has clearly aged up the character, and it's been five seasons since the show has begun, but the timeline of events in Westeros is still very undefined. 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.
