Every Game Of Thrones Actor That Made The Jump To Netflix's 3 Body Problem
"Game of Thrones" co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have teamed with Alexander Woo on an ambitious genre story based on multiple beloved books, Liu Cixin's "3 Body Problem."
While the two shows couldn't be more different, the project is impossible not to compare, partly because so many "Thrones" actors appear in their new show.
John Bradley
In "Thrones," John Bradley played geeky Samwell Tarly. On "Problem," he's Jack Rooney, a former scientific scholar who sold out to make millions with a snack company.
Liam Cunningham
Cunningham's Davos Seaworth was a minor "Thrones" role that made a huge impression. In "Problem," he's Thomas Wade, the ruthless leader of an MI6-like organization.
Jonathan Pryce
Once "Thrones'" High Sparrow, Jonathan Pryce is Mike Evans on "Problem," also a strange and unlikeable fellow who becomes a bit of a religious cult fanatic.
Conleth Hill
"Thrones" alum Conleth Hill is barely recognizable in a full beard and decadent holy garb as "Problem's" San-Ti, but "Thrones" fans might remember Lord Varys' voice.
Mark Gatiss
Mark Gatiss appears briefly as Sir Isaac Newton, a great contrast to his role in "Game of Thrones," the mundane banker Tycho Nestoris who ran the Iron Bank of Braavos.
Alex Sharp
Alex Sharp's "Thrones" connection was a prequel pilot, "Bloodmoon," that never developed. On "Problem," he's Will Downing, the mopey heart of the series.
