    Ok I've come up with an idea for the next contest. I'm guessing most people on here will have at least heard of Game of Thrones, even if they've never watched it. Much like the Harry Potter franchise it's joked that every living British actor has or will show up in it eventually, but it does have Americans and other nationalities in it forming a huge cast of experienced actors.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create an avatar featuring someone who's been in GoT but in another role. Normal avatar rules apply 200x200 pixels/1MB and I'm going to exclude sci-fi and fantasy although I may relax this if people really struggle (though a bit of research suggests you really shouldn't)

    To start the ball rolling here's my entry. Jerome Flynn who plays Bron back when he was in Soldier Solider.

    Can't decide... should I do Natalie Dormer as Anne Boleyn from The Tudors, or as Moriarty from Elementary?

    I like the The Tudors one better, for what it's worth.

    Nice topic idea! (Although I admit that the "no SF&F" rule made things a little more difficult than I was initially expecting! ;))

    Sean Bean (Eddard "Ned" Stark) as Major Richard Sharpe (historic fiction)

    All of his roles that came to my mind are SciFi/Fantasy (Boromir, 006, etc)

    Initially I considered letting it slide but I think it would have made it too easy so this way people have to give it more consideration. Most of the cast have been in non sci-fi stuff.

    Great entries so far. Surprised Sharpe took so long to come up, I figured he'd be first out of the traps :p

    Great theme! I had a similar idea in mind for the future when I recognized an actor from another production :D

    Here's mine:
    John Bradley West aka Sam Tarley in The Borgias

    For anyone needing ideas, I've spotted Jorah in Ripper Street. And Cersei in an episode of White Collar.

    Oh, no worries. I just thought it was funny that all of my initial ideas were SF&F... including two separate versions of Sarah Connor! :lol:

    So you're right, I did have to give it more consideration! ;)

    Would Spooks count as fantasy?
