* Jaqen H'ghar in the books has white hair on one side and red on the other. In the series he has mousey brown hair with a SkunkStripe.

* Jaqen H'ghar in the books has white hair on one side and red on the other. In the series he has mousey reddish brown hair with a SkunkStripe.


* Theon and [[AdaptationNameChange Yara]] have mid-brown hair and blue eyes instead of the black hair and dark eyes they have in the novels.

to:

* Theon and [[AdaptationNameChange Yara]] have mid-brown hair and blue eyes instead of the black hair and dark eyes they have in the novels. Their uncle Euron has similarly lighter hair, and has normal blue eyes instead of having one [[CreepyBlueEyes eerily blue "smiling eye"]] and one [[BlackEyesOfEvil black "blood eye"]].


* In the books, most of the Stark children (Robb, Sansa, Bran and Rickon) inherit the Tully look of auburn hair and blue eyes from Catelyn, while Arya and Ned's illegitimate son Jon inherit the Stark look of dark brown hair and grey eyes from Ned. However, in the show, it's switched around: Ned has light auburn hair rather than brunette and most of his kids have dark hair in the show: Bran has the Stark look with brunette hair and dark eyes, Robb has auburn hair initially [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness but it darkens to brown later]] and Rickon has brown hair. Catelyn and Sansa are the only ones who keep both their blue eyes and red hair, though Sansa's hair is more red-red than her auburn (red-brown) hair in the books. Jon and Arya keep their dark hair, though Jon's is more black.
** The change is notable because the kids' appearances have an impact on the family dynamic in the books: Catelyn is resentful that Ned's illegitimate son Jon looks more like him than any of the trueborn sons she bore him and Arya's feelings of not fully fitting in are partially because she and Jon are the only ones of Ned's kids to inherit the Stark look while Robb, Sansa, Bran and Rickon all inherited the Tully look. In the show, because Jon, Robb, Bran and Arya [[{{SeparatedAtBirthCasting}} all look very alike, classically Stark]], and have darker hair than Ned due to his adaption, the dynamic is inverted and ''Sansa'' appears as the odd one out among her siblings due to her red hair -- though she's still considered the pretty sister and shares both her parents' colouring.

* The distinctive jet-black Baratheon hair of the novels is dark brown in the show, which is a natural shade for most of the actors and so looks more authentic onscreen, though Joe Dempsie (Gendry) is a natural blond dyed to match the other actors because his hair is a plot point. Gendry is also notable for being one of the few Baratheon characters to have the piercing blue eyes of his book counterpart. Ned Stark, when reading through the house's records, still notes that they have black hair.
