Game Of Thrones stars on the rise

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - COVER STORY -

It’s eas­ier to break through from TV to film than it used to be, but none of the young ac­tors from Game of Thrones has yet got be­yond the “brink of star­dom”. Kit Har­ring­ton did good work in Tes­ta­ment of You than dis slated to play op­po­site Jes­sica Chas­tain in an up­com­ing project from Que­beco is wun­der kind Xavier Dolan.

Natalie Dormer, who­plays slip­pery Mar­gaery Tyrell, had al­ready turned heads as Anne Bo­leyn in The

Tu­dors and made fur­ther ad­vance as

Cres­sidain The Hunger Games.

So­phie Turner and Maisie

Wil­liams, who play the plucky Stark sis­ters, have taken dif­fer­ent routes to the pin­na­cle. Turner will play the young Jean Grey in next year’s block­bust­ingX- Men:Apoca­lypse. Wil­liams has ex­celled in the charm­ing Ir­ish fea­ture Gold and Carol Mor­ley’s cur­rent, hugely spooky The Fall­ing.

The Throner with the strong­est po­ten­tial for break through is, per­haps, Lon­doner Emilia Clarke. The some­time Daen­erys Tar­garyen plays Sarah Con­nor in this year’s

Ter­mi­na­tor Genisys.

It’s in­ter­est­ing that al­mos tall those men­tioned above are women. Does this say some­thing about the strength of the fe­male roles in Game of Thrones?
