With book to screen adaptions, there obviously comes the task of casting actors the right age for the right characters – but another issue with Game of Thrones is, a lot of the characters are supposed to be very young at the start of the first season. On a plus side, we’ve been able to watch our favourite characters grow into adulthood – literally – and you might be surprised over the actual age of your favourite stars.
1. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) – Age 23
At the beginning of the show, Jon was 16 years old – which he could sort of get away with when he had a baby face.
In the latest season, Jon is supposed to be 23 – which seems ridiculous with that beard and world-weary expression. He obviously knows nothing about looking his age.
