At first, Jared Harris was very eager to get a role in another popular TV series, namely "World wild West", but was in turn bypassed by Anthony Hopkins.

In the case of the role of His Barabasheva also Jared was ahead of the no less famous Jonathan Pryce. One gets the impression that the specialty Directors are looking for older actors for cooperation.

9. Melisandre, the Red priestess (Gillian Anderson)

"Secret agent Dana Scully" the audition "Game of thrones", but has not been admitted to the role. Fans have been guessing and came independently to the conclusion that it was either about the role of Cersei or the red priestess Melisandre.

The daughter of actress couldn't believe, how can you refuse such a large project. What Gillian said that it is better to spend time shooting movies in the works Scorsese.

8. Xaro Xhoan Daxos (Maharshal Ali)

The casting Director of the series for a very long time lamented that the role Ksaro gave Maharshal Ali. In her opinion, he is entered in the project, the more that it approached the process of trial very carefully.

But in the end all went according to plan. Who knows, maybe Ali was Maharshal and would be more suited to the rest of the cast, but about it nobody knows.

7. Renly Baratheon / Loras Tyrell (Sam Chuan)

Sam Chuan a big fan of the universe of "Game of thrones", and therefore everything that happens in the world of Westeros, very close to his spirit. And what was his total disappointment when, after a trial on several roles, Sam was denied participation!

He was closer than ever to such characters like Renly Baratheon, Loras Tyrell and a few brothers of the Night's watch, and everywhere he lacked a little bit. Well, nothing, no event just happens, so Sam better stay a loyal viewer.

6. Catelyn Stark (Jennifer El)

Jennifer El, has received wide popularity after the TV series "Pride and prejudice" and the role of Elizabeth Bennet, not just auditioned for the role of Catelyn stark, she got the role!

She even starred in the pilot episode, but at the last moment refused because I decided that I will not be able to leave his little daughter for such a long period of filming. A funny irony is that a loving and caring mother refused to play the loving and caring mother.

5. Sansa Stark (Izzy Meikle-Small)

Izzy Meikle-small was literally a step away from getting the role of Sansa stark. At the last moment the Studio bosses approved the candidacy of Sophie Turner.

According to the British actress, she is very upset because the series is in abundance shows "nudity", but such a scenario of events probably would not have liked her parents.

4. Daenerys Targaryen (Tamzin Merchant)

As Jennifer ale, Tamzin merchant managed to star in the pilot episode of the first season of "Game of thrones". But after that, the actress inexplicably decided to leave the project. It is still unclear what influenced her decision.

Whether it is not a masterpiece as the first series or want to work in the Tudors, but Tamzin merchant to continue to participate in the filming of not wanted to. It is worth noting that the author of the whole Saga of George Martin praised the game of the actress in the Tudors.

3. The king-beyond-the-Wall (Dominic West)

Dominic West is very much different from the role of mance Rayder. He could take on the embodiment on the screen of the King-beyond-the-Wall, but decided that spending so much time without her family too much trouble for him.

Nephew Dominic complained that his uncle refused to participate in the only cool show that's on TV. When Dominic woke up and wanted to return to the role, it was too late. The role went Chiarano Hands.

2. Stannis Baratheon (Mark Strong)

That's really about who exactly we can say that it is unfortunate that the fans didn't see his name in the cast. Most likely, mark strong would fit perfectly in a cruel and menacing world of Westeros, and apparently he fits the role of a harsh and cold-blooded Stannis Baratheon.

Unfortunately, mark strong chose to abandon the role in favor of the series "Low winter sun," which, sadly, did not continue its existence beyond the first season. For the role of Stannis was taken by Stephen Dillan, which, though brilliantly embodied on the screen the character of one of the brothers Baratheon, but the spirit of the serial universe, not inspired.

1. Cersei Lannister (Tricia The Helfer)

Tricia the Helfer is a proven star who becomes such after participating in the TV series "Battlestar "Galactica." The actress once told his devoted fans on Twitter that he was going to audition for the role of Cersei Lannister.
