Game of Thrones has gone through as many actors as Walder Frey has wives. There’s been three Mountains, two Berics, two Daarios — hell, Emilia Clarke wasn’t even the original Daenerys Targaryen. In Sunday’s episode, “The Lion and the Rose,” the new Tommen made his debut, and now he’s 37 years old. Margaery’s one lucky lady. Anyway, let’s take a look at the complete history of Game of Thrones recastings, beginning with a Mountain of a man.
