HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones has made dozens of stars into household names, but rarely do we get to see what they look like in 'real life'.

Aside from familiar names like Peter Dinklage ("Elf"), Lena Headey ("300," "The Sarah Connor Chronicles") and Charles Dance (a very recognizable "that guy" from such films as "The Golden Child" and "Your Highness"), the world was introduced to the likes of Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington and Jack Gleeson.

Emilia Clarke (below) plays "mother of dragons" Daenerys Targaryen (above), and in case you hadn't noticed, she's a natural brunette. She also smiles a heck of a lot more on the red carpet than she does on the show.
