Who’s had the most successful post-Game of Thrones career? What are the stars up to now?



Remember that little known show Game of Thrones that dominated all of our lives for the best part of eight years before wrapping up back in 2019?

It was recently announced that Kit Harington is joining the second season of Amazon’s Modern Love, which got us thinking: what are the rest of them up to?

We’re not going to list every cast member because who has time for that? But we’ve taken a look at the biggest players to find out who has been the busiest since parting ways with Westeros.

12. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime)

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is swapping Westeros for Netflix survival drama Against the Ice, which he also created.

Set in 1909, he plays a captain determined to refute the US’s claim to North Eastern Greenland. Gangs of London and Peaky Blinders’ star Joe Cole plays a crew member.

That’s the most commercial project he’s worked on.

The Silencing, in which he played a man whose daughter went missing years ago, was panned by critics, and terrorist drama The Day We Died didn’t make much noise outside of Denmark.

He also starred in romantic drama A Taste of Hunger, in which he played one half of a couple running a successful restaurant in Copenhagen who will do anything to secure a Michelin star.

11. Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei)

Nathalie Emmanuel starred in Hulu’s reboot of Four Weddings and a Funeral, which received lukewarm reviews at best. And comedy-drama Holly Slept Over, which follows a married couple who are trying to have a baby, also failed to capture people’s imaginations.

Like Lena Headey (about whom more later), Emmanuel also appeared in Netflix’s The Dark Crystal, and there was action-comedy Die Hart with Kevin Hart and John Travolta (Greece).

She has bagged a role in the upcoming F9, also known as Fast & Furious 9, and the prequel to Zack Snyder’s Netflix movie Army of the Dead, alongside the following:

10. Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran)

Isaac Hempstead Wright has been cast in sci-fi movie Voyagers alongside Colin Farrell, Tye Sheridan (X-Men), Lily-Rose Depp (The King), Fionn Whitehead (Black MirrorBandersnatch) and Quintessa Swindell (Trinkets).

It follows a group of people who are sent into space to look for a new home, but the crew soon start to turn against one another.

His other project, The Blue Mauritius, stars Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) and Elodie Yung (Daredevil). It follows five thieves who meet in Cape Town to swipe the most expensive stamp in the world.

9. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne)

It’s quality, not quantity for Gwendoline Christie.

She was the main event in the National Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and she also took on a minor role in The Personal History of David Copperfield, which has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 92%.

In big news, she has also been cast as Lucifer in Netflix’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman with the following lovely lot:

8. John Bradley (Sam)

John Bradley is set to appear in Marry Me, a romcom starring Jennifer Lopez, Wes Anderson favourite Owen Wilson, Sarah Silverman and Columbian music artist Maluma.

He’s also been cast in sci-fi action flick Moonfall with Halle Berry, Stanley Tucci, Patrick Wilson, Charlie Plummer, Donald Sutherland and Michael Peña among others.

On a slightly more lowkey level, he starred in season four of Urban Myths, a comedy-drama that tackles famous stories from popular culture, alongside fellow GoT alum Mark Addy and Steve Pemberton (Inside No. 9).

7. Alfie Allen (Theon)

Alfie Allen has appeared in ITV’s true crime series White House Farm and brothel drama Harlots.

He starred in the movie adaptation of Caitlin Moran’s novel How to Build A Girl with Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart) and Paddy Considine (The Third Day), which has a 79% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. And he had a minor role in Taika Waititi’s JoJo Rabbit, a film that divided opinion.

He’s also set to star in Netflix thriller Night Teeth with Insatiable’s Debby Ryan and Lucy Fry (Godfather of Harlem). It centres on a chauffeur who must fight for survival after a routine job turns into a nightmare.

In Nightwalkers (not White Walkers), Allen stars as a young man, looking for love, who meets a woman, played by Riverdale’s Madelaine Petsch.

And there’s also La Cha Cha, which he’s appearing in with his dad Keith Allen (The Pembrokeshire Murders) and other former Twin Town stars Rhys and Llyr Ifans, among others.

“The film is about a woman who wants to be a ballroom dancer who inherits the campsite from her grandmother,” said director Kevin Allen (via WalesOnline), Keith’s brother.

6. Sophie Turner (Sansa)

Sophie Turner, who has since married and had a baby, hasn’t committed to a lot following her time on GoT.

She starred in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which we gave an entirely acceptable three stars. Other publications weren’t so kind.

She was also the face of a series called Survive on the now defunct Quibi, which involved her character trying to reach home after a plane crash.

Turner will also take centre stage in Broken Soldier with Goodfellas Ray Liotta, which revolves around a former soldier who is struggling with PTSD.

And there’s also HBO Max’s The Prince, an animated series which centres on Prince George. She’s voicing his sister, Princess Charlotte, alongside Orlando Bloom among others.


5. Maisie Williams (Arya)

After Thrones concluded, Maisie Williams said that she wanted to take a step back from acting, which was to be expected after spending more than eight years working on the series.

“I guess, subconsciously, I dyed it [her hair] because I didn’t want to work,” Williams told Rolling Stone. “It’s a pretty good way of stopping that. And it just feels so good, so me.

“What’s hit me the most about the show ending isn’t the show ending. It’s like, I’m free. I can do anything now.”

Since then, she has thrown herself into other creative pursuits, such as fashion, but Williams hasn’t abandoned acting completely.

She appeared in X-Men spin-off The New Mutants with Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit) and Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things), alongside others. But it was received poorly by critics and fans.

She also starred in Two Weeks to Live with Fleabag’s Sian Clifford, The Bay’s Taheen Modak, and comedian, actor and writer Mawaan Rizwan. The comedy follows Williams as Kim, a young woman who, after living in the middle of nowhere with her mum, decides to leave home. But she ends up on the run from some very angry gangsters. We were big fans, and you can read our review here.

Williams also starred in The Owners, a home-invasion horror, which didn’t set the world alight. We gave it three stars.

4. Emilia Clarke (Daenerys)

After playing the mighty Mother of Dragons, Emilia Clarke has taken some time to enjoy her newfound freedom, and who can blame her?

She starred in Last Christmas alongside Crazy Rich Asians’ Henry Golding and Michelle Yeoh, and Emma Thompson, who also co-wrote it. Paul Feig (A Simple FavourGhostbusters reboot, Bridesmaids) was on board as director.

And she’s also doing a spot of voice acting in The Amazing Maurice, an animated film based on Terry Pratchett’s The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, alongside Hugh Laurie, Gemma Arterton, David Thewlis, Himesh Patel and Hugh Bonneville.

3. Kit Harington (Jon)

As one of the major players in GoT, it’ll come as no surprise that Kit Harington’s CV is looking solid. He took some time out at a “wellness retreat to work on some personal issues”, according to his representative, but he has since appeared in Netflix’s police anthology Criminal: UK, which has received praise from both critics and the public.

He’s also bagged himself a role in the second season of Amazon’s Modern Love, an anthology series based on the New York times column of the same name. In a huge coup, he’ll also be appearing in Marvel’s Eternals as a character called the Black Knight, who you can read all about here.

2. Lena Headey (Cersei)

lena headey


Lena Headey was already an established name prior to joining the adaptation of George RR Martin’s novel series, so it’s a given that her career is bobbing along nicely.

She has been working on Crooks with Juno Temple (Ted LassoDirty John) and independent filmmaker Mark Kassen.

Headey is also set to appear in indie drama Gypsy Moon, in which she plays a burlesque dancer at the end of her career who is forced to go on the run with a young boy from her neighbourhood after an ex-partner threatens his life. Sam Worthington (Avatar franchise), Dean Scott Vasquez (Jack Ryan) and Barbara Hershey (the Insidious films) all feature.

Headey is also the star of Showtime comedy-drama Rita, in which she plays a teacher and a single mother. It’s based on an award-winning Danish series.

And she has been cast in Gunpowder Milkshake as Scarlet, a hitwoman who gave up her daughter Sam (Karen Gillan) when she was younger. Sam is raised by a crime syndicate and learns how to be just like momma, but when an eight-year-old comes into her life, she must decide which one to choose.

Headey also worked on Netflix’s time travel animated series Wizards: Tales of Arcadia, created by Guillermo del Toro, in which Merlin’s apprentice is caught in between human, troll and magical worlds. And she did some voice acting in Netflix’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

Further animated work includes a villain in Nickelodeon’s Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the critically-acclaimed Infinity Train, which began its life on Cartoon Network, before moving to HBO. Like Snowpiercer, it’s set on a huge train that just keeps chugging along. For people to move from one carriage to the next, they must complete challenges, which in turn help them deal with emotional problems and trauma.

Heady was cast in Twist, the movie adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic, which she appeared in with Jude Law’s son Raff, Rita Ora, Michael Caine and Noel Clarke among others, thought it was critically panned.

Headey will also appear in Marvel’s New-Gen: Deadalus Rising, an animated sci-fi series also starring Luke Wilson. Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard and his brother are twins and nanotech-enhanced superheroes who are fighting to prevent all out war. The Witcher’s Anya Chalotra has also been cast.

She will also appear in Netflix anime series Masters of the Universe: Revelation, based on the He-Man franchise, with Mark Hamill, Sarah Michelle Gellar, fellow GoT co-star Liam Cunningham and Alicia Silverstone (Clueless), among others.

1. Peter Dinklage (Tyrion)

peter dinklage


Like Headey, Peter Dinklage was already well acquainted with the industry before he rocked up on Game of Thrones, and he went straight from Thrones into the MCU, in Avengers: Infinity War.

He recently starred in Netflix’s I Care A Lot as a gangster on a mission to rescue his mother from the clutches of a wicked professional legal guardian played by Rosamund Pike. We gave it four stars, but reviews were mixed across the board.

It was also announced that he’s signed up for The Dwarf, which is being directed by The Machinist’s Brad Anderson. Dinklage is playing a nefarious right-hand-man to a prince, and Alexander Skarsgard (Big Little Lies) is also said to be involved.

There’s also The Wild Bunch remake, a western starring Jamie Foxx (Soul) and Michael Fassbender (X-Men), with Mel Gibson (Braveheart) said to be directing.

And indie film American Dreamer, written by Hidden Figure’s Theodore Melfi, which he’ll appear in with Shirley MacLaine. It’s based on a true story from the This American Life podcast.

Dinklage and Josh Brolin will play brothers in a film called, well, Brothers.

There’s also thriller The Thicket, in which Dinklage will be joined by IT’s Sophia Lillis, Noomi Rapace, and Looking For Alaska’s Charlie Plummer. It follows one man’s quest to rescue his sister, who has been abducted.

And on a lighter note, Dinklage has been cast in Hitpig with Rainn Wilson (The Office), RuPaul and comedian Hannah Gadsby, among others, which revolves around a porcine bounty hunter and an elephant.

He also voiced a character in animated flick The Croods: A New Age, and played a role in Kate McKinnon’s Audible fantasy-comedy Heads Will Roll.

The Significance of Proper Support in Sportswear for Exercise



The Significance of Proper Support in Sportswear for Exercise

When purchasing exercise clothing, the aspect of support is often overlooked. Sportswear companies tend to prioritise features such as moisture-wicking materials and convenient pockets. However, we believe that support is a crucial aspect of dressing for workouts, as it ensures both comfort and optimal performance. Support can be seen as the intersection of sportswear and shapewear. Therefore, it is essential to understand the significance of appropriate support during physical activity and know where to find it.

The Shapewear Crossover

Supportive sportswear primarily functions through gentle compression. It maintains stability and keeps your body secure while you engage in physical activity. Common characteristics between Standard shapewear and sports bras can be found. Both utilise specialised, flexible materials to offer body support. They are also designed with minimal seams to prevent discomfort and ensure discreteness. Additionally, the emphasis on comfort remains consistent for both types of apparel. As a result, similar principles apply when it comes to providing optimal body support.

What kind of support should your athletic apparel provide?

When engaging in physical activities, it is important to wear clothing that provides stability, regardless of the intensity. Whether you are running a marathon or practising yoga, your Sports bras and briefs should not cause any discomfort or irritation. In this article, we will explore the areas of the body that require support from sportswear.

Breast support

A sports bra is essential for any physical activity, regardless of intensity. It serves as the ultimate supportive sportswear, providing both comfort and stability. By minimizing excessive movement, it helps prevent discomfort in the breast and back areas. With the multitude of options available, finding the perfect sports bra style depends on factors such as your breast size, the type of sport you engage in, and your preferred method of wearing and removing it.

Back support

If you’ve ever dealt with back pain, you understand the significance of a well-fitting bra. A sports bra that offers adequate support helps minimize the strain on your muscles and ligaments, preventing discomfort and soreness in your back. Additionally, it alleviates upper back and shoulder pain commonly associated with the weight of larger breasts.

Tummy support

Those who possess knowledge on the matter may opt to provide support to their waist and stomach by wearing sports underwear or leggings. Both options are equally effective. It is advisable to seek out high-waisted compression garments with a wide waistband, as they contribute to the stability and strength of your torso, which is vital in preventing injuries. By promoting stability and offering support to the abdomen, these garments also aid in preventing chafing and can boost your confidence, allowing you to elevate your performance.

In recent years we’ve definitely seen a shift in the fashion industry, with influencers and celebrities placing pressure on the high street to make plus-size fashion more accessible for all. Nowadays, Sportswear is highly demanding as demonstrated by plus size UK influencers.

The advantages of wearing supportive sportswear

The support provided by activewear has a tangible influence on your sports performance and how your body reacts to exercise. It’s no wonder that many women opt for activewear as their everyday clothing choice.


The incorporation of compression panels in clothing such as high-waisted underwear or leggings can enhance your posture. Maintaining a strong and stable posture is crucial during physical activities to prevent injuries. Whether you engage in sports like tennis, running, or weightlifting, having adequate support around your torso can significantly benefit you.


The crucial aspect of effective sportswear is its ability to provide comfort. It is important to ensure that your sportswear does not constrict your breathing. To find comfortable and supportive garments, opt for those with extended panels made of lightweight fabrics that wick away moisture. These fabrics are not only lightweight but also provide support to your body while minimising the risk of chafing. Additionally, an increasing number of garments are being designed without hems, allowing them to sit smoothly against your skin without causing any discomfort.


Compression is commonly utilised in shapewear to create a desired figure, but in the context of sportswear, it can actually improve your performance. Whether it’s in the form of socks or leggings, compression technology promotes better blood circulation to targeted areas like your legs. This increased blood flow intensifies your exercise routine and contributes to faster recovery.

The finest athletic attire should not only prioritise fashion and technology. Its primary function is to provide stability to your core, enabling you to engage in activities comfortably and confidently. This underscores the significance of support, which is crucial not just during physical exertion but also in day-to-day life.

Exploring Alternative Sentencing Options: Understanding the Potential for No Jail Time in 2nd Offense DWI Cases in Texas:



Exploring Alternative Sentencing Options: Understanding the Potential for No Jail Time in 2nd Offense DWI Cases in Texas:

While Texas has some of the most drunk drivers in the country, the state also has some of the strictest DWI penalties. Despite how common a Texas DWI and 2nd DWI can be (with over 30% of DWI convicts reoffending), a 2nd DWI conviction will land you at least 72 hours in county jail and possibly even a year. Although many will agree that the punishment fits the crime, a 2nd DWI charge can be a telltale sign of alcohol addiction, and can often require rehabilitation that a jail sentence cannot offer. Luckily enough, there are several ways you can avoid a conviction for a 2nd DWI in Texas to receive no jail time and focus on your rehabilitation.

An Expert DWI Attorney:

Since mandatory jail time can only be avoided by avoiding conviction, a skilled DWI attorney is crucial to any option you explore. A 2nd DWI charge requires the same amount of evidence as a 1st DWI charge, and can often be defended with the same tactics. Depending on the circumstances of your case, a DWI attorney may be able to scrutinize a field sobriety test, the administration of a breathalyzer test, or the constitutionality of a traffic stop. Always inquire about the potential for a successful defense before you set your mind on other options, as dismissal or acquittal is the only way to circumvent all penalties of a 2nd DWI in Texas no jail time. If an expert attorney determines that your case won’t fare well at trial they can petition for probation or a DWI court to proceed over your case, or negotiate a plea for you.

DWI Court:

Many of Texas’ major cities offer a DWI court program as a way to avoid jail for DWI 2nd offenders or defendants who show signs of alcoholism. DWI court is similar to probation but heavily emphasizes rehabilitation. A program will typically involve common aspects of community supervision, routine attendance at outpatient programs, and meetings between you, a judge, a probation officer, and a counselor. If you do not abide by the court’s rules or mandatory programs your case can go back to court and you will likely go to jail. A DWI court program is at least a year, but the length and regimen can be augmented depending on a defendant’s progress. Upon a judge “graduating” you from DWI court your sentence will be fulfilled. DWI court not only allows you to avoid jail time but is known to reduce DWI recidivism rates by as much as 12%.

Plea Bargain:

With Texas’ criminal justice system being notoriously arduous, nearly 30% of all DWIs are reduced to lesser charges to avoid the hassle of a trial. In cases without aggravating factors such as an enhanced blood alcohol concentration, a child passenger, or an accident, a 2nd DWI charge can be bargained down to a minimum sentence or reduced charges. To be considered for a plea deal, a defendant will usually have to show personal growth and remorse. This is typically done by issuing a statement to the court, installing an ignition interlock in your vehicle, or attending DWI education courses or outpatient. If you plea to a minimum sentence you will likely still face 72 hours in jail and probation. While it’s uncommon for a 2nd DWI plea deal in Texas to receive no jail time, this is not impossible if your charges are reduced to reckless driving or obstruction of a highway.

Don’t Drink and Drive:

72 hours in jail is considered the mandatory minimum sentence for a 2nd DWI conviction and those facing charges are unlikely to see no jail time. The only guaranteed way to avoid jail is to avoid drinking and driving. With a drunk driving fatality occurring every 8.5 hours in Texas and over 10% of Texans reporting involvement in a drunk driving crash sometime in their lives, don’t fall under the impression that you are immune to the consequences of a DWI. Always make sure that you have a designated driver or extra money for an Uber when you go out drinking, it can save someone’s life and protect your future.
