Game of Thrones began as a set of five books written by George R.R. Martin and has since exploded into every empty nook and cranny that is left in the entertainment industry. Everyone is talking about it and it has flooded almost every media source out there including the Telegraph and BBC. This being said, with the amount of noteworthy material out there it is pretty self-explanatory as to why. From the backstabbing and fights for survival to the application of strategic thinking, sexy ladies and even dragons, there’s a lot more to this show than meets the eye.
Game of Thrones is just sheer entertainment and, no, this is not a reference to a lot of the female’s wardrobe choices and its wonderful ability to keep people on the edge of their seats each and every single episode. No matter the twists and turns that the plot may take, the writers of the show know that the majority of their audience is mainly male so there is no shortage of sex and violence to their fullest extremes. From literally having sex on camera to the wicked sword fights, those involved undergo a strenuous process while shooting, but the final product always makes their hard work and dedication worthwhile. Now feast your eyes on the stunning ladies that are there for your viewing pleasure. And feel free to stare, no one is judging.
15. Lena Headey - Cercei Lannister
After how she was treated at the end of season five, it will definitely be interesting to see how she comes back in season 6. But, the question remains: will her power and rage overwhelm her or will she just come back better than ever? Time magazine is on her side, are you? If you haven’t figured it out by now, Lena Headey made quite an impression when last season came to a close with her dramatic and heart-wrenching walk of shame through the streets which was a direct result of her inexcusable actions in the eyes of the religious order. This being said, she will be beautiful either way, for simply cutting off her hair, thus “eliminating” her feminine appeal, can never hide the strength, power and kindness that radiates from her amazing face and spectacular body. From her kind green eyes and natural hourglass figure to her inner-strength, here’s to hoping that she will not have to undergo too much more punishment from the people.
14. Carice van Houten - Melisandre
More popularly known as The Red Woman, Melisandre is played by Carice van Houten, a 39 year old Dutch actress who has bright blue eyes and crazy red hair. But, the extreme nature of her coloring does nothing but emphasize the dramatic nature of the character that she plays on the silver screen. Her features compliment the nature of The Red Woman perfectly because magic is the only possible explanation behind how her eyes could be so blue and her face can change from really sweet to evil with the blink of an eye. Sure, we all get angry from time to time but there is a mad difference between anger and how it is expressed at its peak and she seems to have its expression down to a science while still looking good doing it. Her body is still in great shape too and is more than just complimented by the style of the times. All this almost makes up for the fact that she is the cause of so much destruction… maybe the more sympathetic side of her (which is going to be showing face in season six) will push it just that little bit further.
13. Keisha Castle-Hughes - Obara Sand
This Academy Award nominated actress joined Game of Thrones as Obara Sand in season five and has made quite an impact ever since. Being a strong warrior, it makes sense that the casting directors would choose an actress who is not only extremely talented but not too feminine. With her strong jaw and thicker eyebrows which hover closer to her eyes than most women, she comes across as a masculine character who fits the role of Obara perfectly. Sure, when you see her in her formal wear it is a shock to think that she can look so traditionally feminine, but it works either way since her pretty face can’t help but shine through. It’s something about the way that her lips don’t need to be over-emphasized but still draw your eyes in which then makes your mind wander and think about what her taught figure that still maintains its womanly attributes would feel like against your skin that makes you forget about the rest of it and simply focus on that particular moment in time that just makes her oh so noteworthy and you don’t care who knows it.
2 Sibel Kekilli - Shae
Sibel Kekilli plays Shae, a prostitute who has had a number of exclusive relationships since she first appeared on Game of Thrones in the first season, and you can definitely expect her to come back again in season six. While this may sound a little confusing, especially since she was killed by the hands of Tyrion, here’s to hoping that the writers have a solid plan of action. Either way, while her face may not be as blatantly sexy as some other women who have been involved in the show, she does have an appeal. While her smile is sweet with a hint of deviousness to it, her small yet mesmerizing eyes are hard to look away from and her long but slender nose seems to just bring it all together. This may be because of her slender, oval face that would be completely thrown out of whack otherwise or the way that her dark locks just frame her face in a way that cannot help but add a hint of sex appeal to her but, either way, her look just works and the show is better for it.
1 Oona Chaplin - Talisa Stark
Being a Spanish actress who has a dance background, it is pretty evident that Oona Chaplin’s body would be absolutely mind blowing but hers goes above and beyond words. Her features are piercing while still having that special quality that makes her such a hottie that you simply cannot keep your eyes off of. Sometimes the most attractive people are those who just possess that extra little something and she simply falls under that category. Given, her nose may look a little too big for her face at certain angles, but imperfections bring us into the realm of reality and that’s exactly what she does. While she only appeared in seasons two and three, there may be a way to bring her back onto the silver screen, even just a few more times, so we can bear witness to her statuesque body once more. Only time will tell if that will ever happen.
10. Hannah Murray - Gilly
Gilly is one of those characters that you can’t help but empathize with since she has gone through so much but will never give up hope that one day things will get better for her. Her father and husband may be a wildling but she is nothing like him. Her sweet face has just the right amount of sexiness to it so she doesn’t overwhelm the viewers with her extreme beauty, but her physical and mental balance between experience and youth still entices them enough to pay attention to what she has to say. Her big eyes are a dead giveaway to how her character is feeling, while her puckered mouth is one that you just want to kiss, no matter who you are. Given, her hair may be untamed and wild in the show but, after everything that she has experienced, it’s just a small detail in the grander scheme of things and she looks magnificent either way.
9. Sophie Turner - Sansa Stark
Sophie Turner’s natural and unique beauty is possessed by her alone and proves that you don’t need any sort of makeup to be regarded as a stunner. Since she has been playing Sansa Stark, the eldest daughter of Lady Catelyn and Lord Eddard Stark, it only makes sense that her features would come off as powerful and almost regal in some shape or form and with her high cheekbones, slight pout and fierce eyes she achieves that and more. Given, they may not be as predominant as other female characters in The Game of Thrones but they’re striking nonetheless. Just like her face, her curves are subtle but noteworthy and it is all backed by how strong she is as a character. The best is yet to come as Sophie Turner has hinted at Sansa’s big rebirth to E! Online but the explanation as to why this will be such a pivotal moment is yet to be revealed. What will happen? You’ll have to watch season six to find out.
8. Indira Varma - Ellaria Sand
Being of Hindu and Swiss descent comes as an advantage to this beautiful actress because the two backgrounds mix wonderfully together and, in turn, create a caramel-colored goddess. Indra Varma’s features are strong but seductive and her lips are a makeup artist’s dream because of her naturally accentuated cupid’s bow and perfect amount of pout. To top it all off, her figure can easily be compared to that of a fit yet slender model who has chosen to eat something other than a salad every once in awhile. Being 5’7″ is just an added perk and makes her even more powerful since men basically have to look her directly in the eye while talking to her. Nothing is sexier than a woman who can say what’s on her mind and put a man in his place if she so sees fit, and her speech about love and the unpredictability of it directed at Jamie Lannister pushes that point home.
7. Esmé Bianco - Ros
Esmé Bianco took on the role of Ros, a highly regarded prostitute whose beauty is spoken about throughout the lands and has proved that you don’t have to be dressed in anything that is overly provocative or look like a walking skeleton to be desired. In addition, since she has grown up outside the city’s walls, it’s understandable that she would have some spunk as well which does nothing but add to her intrigue. However, personality traits aside, this reoccurring role captivates the viewers while on screen with her awesome red hair and exquisite body which can only be compared to a Greek goddess. Her spectacular hourglass figure is pushed to the next level thanks to her awe-worthy breasts and small waist. Nonetheless, her face is not on the ugly side of the spectrum either and her perfect lips just add to her appeal. Either way, it’s easy to see why she had clients who held some status of nobility and I’m sure that their sex lives were never the same after her passing.
6. Aimee Richardson - Myrcella Baratheon
While Aimee Richardson may have been recast and replaced by Nell Tiger Free after season two of the already hit show Game of Thrones, this Irish actress had a blast doing it while it lasted. Having been only 14 when she was cast, her sweet and kind face shone through everything that was going on and, despite all odds, still radiated youth and naiveté. There’s something about the way that her pale and flawless skin plays up against the coloring in her costume and the stunning green nature of her eyes that brings forth a beauty like nothing you have ever seen before. In addition, her features balance each other out to its utmost extreme as to not distract the viewer but maintain their attention every single time that she appears in the scene. If all of that wasn’t enough, her strawberry blonde hair set her apart from the rest and continues to do so even to this day. It’s clear that she will become a strikingly beautiful woman because she is already starting to develop into one and will break many hearts in her future.
5. Nathalie Emmanuel - Missandei
Nathalie Emmanuel was extremely lucky to have been cast for the role of Missandri due to the ever-evolving nature that she possesses. Having started out as a reoccurring character back when season three just began, she slowly got more and more screen time until she was eventually promoted to a full time cast member in season five. Sure, most of the reasoning behind it is probably her marvelous talents and need to keep the story line progressing, but, her beauty is evident no matter who you are. With her milky skin and big hair she just demands the attention that she deserves. Besides, when you pair that with her kind bedroom eyes, small but prominent nose and cute pout you can’t help but stare. In addition, her slim yet curvaceous body also looks great in as much, or little, clothing she has on. She flaunts the curves that she has been blessed with and no one can truly blame her for doing so.
4. Nell Tiger Free - Myrcella Baratheon
Nell Tiger Free may not have been playing Myrcella Baratheon since season one like her counterpart Aimee Richardson, having has taken over in season five, but her young appearance and similar structure make her a brilliant choice to take on the role. Given that she may only be 16 but this English actress has more experience than most actors her age and it shows. Having mastered facial expressions which still look very appealing yet realistic is a tough task for any actor and just adds to the reasons as to why she’s on this list. She doesn’t need makeup to be desirable to the male audience but you know simply through her stare that she would be able to take you down if she absolutely had to. This is done through her wonderful facial structure that cannot help but scream power and desirability due to her high, prominent cheekbones and strong yet feminine jaw line. In addition, her piercing green eyes that sparkle when she has the ability to show off her lovely smile and cute button nose make her the ideal choice for this woman of royalty who is known for her innocence and kindness to all who deserve it.
3. Emilia Clarke - Daenerys Targaryen
Emilia Clarke has Game of Thrones to thank for her first major television role and the fans wouldn’t have it any other way. Despite her slightly awkward blonde hair while playing Daenerys, her beauty can never be hidden. Her face has the soft features that her character needs to be believable as a gentle and kind princess who is just surrounded by absurdity. However, this does not stop her from having multiple sex scenes which feature her glorious hourglass figure in all of its glory. From her natural breasts to small waist, she seems to be the subject of attention for many people and you can’t really blame the scriptwriters for wanting to keep it that way. However, the fans may have to deal with the reality that they may not see as much of her as they are used to since she has been very vocal to many media sources including HollywoodLife about her dislike of the explicit nature of them. While we may not know the eventual outcome it is evident that the show would change greatly if she got her way.
2. Rose Leslie - Ygritte
This Scottish beauty is a magical wonder each time she walks across the screen as the skilled archer Ygritte. With her brightly colored but fully natural red hair running wild and free, her character has no bounds and this is exemplified when she finally wins the love of Jon Snow as well as participates in the battles which will hopefully lead to the ultimate freedom imaginable. Even without makeup on, Rose Leslie is a beautiful woman whose athleticism shines through every step. Her face is kind but focused while her bright eyes mirror the unbreakable focus that her mind has which is one of the reasons why she is so skilled at her craft. Her lips are also tight but voluminous, making her the ideal mate for anyone who can keep up with her. Sure, Ygritte may have had her final moments on Game of Thrones but she will live forever in the hearts of her fans as the woman who could do anything.
1. Natalie Dormer - Margaery Tyrell
While Margaery Tyrell may appear to be a backstabbing, malicious character in Game of Thrones, Natalie Dormer appears to be one of the sweetest, most genuine people to ever appear as part of the entertainment industry. Having been a true fan of the show since the pilot, she admitted to Jimmy Kimmel that she never knows what will go on with anyone’s story line but her own until it airs when asked about season six which will be airing on April 24th. However, no matter how good of a person she may be the versatility in her good looks cannot be overlooked either. This is mainly comprised of her long, flowing blonde hair which is mainly seen down but out of her marvelous face at any given moment as to not distract from the beauty with would otherwise be hidden. With her adorable button nose, high cheekbones that bring your attention upward to her fierce eyes and the killer body that you see once you finally get a grip and decide to look downward, Natalie Dormer definitely brings the sex appeal of the series to the next level each time she’s on the screen.
