Added DiffLines:

* A frequent comment was that Creator/JonathanPryce's performance as the High Sparrow was very similar to Pope Francis. In 2019, he actually ''was'' [[https://youtu.be/6rgMOpeA5vM cast as Pope Francis]].

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/SophieTurner would be in two franchises ending in 2019 (one of these this one) [[Film/DarkPhoenix that were widely criticized as unsatisfying]].

Added DiffLines:

* Lena Headey's very next role after the show ended was in ''Series/TheDarkCrystalAgeOfResistance'', where she rebels ''against'' a very Cersei-like character.

Added DiffLines:

** Creator/NobunagaShimazaki and Creator/YuumaUchida, who voice the polar opposite brothers Joffrey and Tommen Baratheon, again play polar opposite roles,but as cousins in the 2019 version of Manga/FruitsBasket. And what's funnier, is that their personalities are swapped. However, Kyo at least keeps his temper in check and is a tsundere, while Joffrey is a maniac with no redeemable qualities. And Yuki, just like Tommen, [[spoiler: craves affection he never received from his mother. However, Yuki at least finds it through Tohru.]] You could also say that Tommen, a KindheartedCatLover, is not just another one in the anime, but also transforms into a cat, and can attract them. Tommen would have loved that instead of having to deal with the problems of running the Seven Kingdoms.


** This got even better just a few months later when ''Film/{{Rocketman}}'' portrayed the same guy as being very Littlefinger-esque himself, though not played by Gillen this time.

** In a similar way, Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa's role as Tyrion could be this considering his debut role as the titular [[spoiler:Anime/TekkamanBlade]] and how both shows ends: [[spoiler:[[PersonOfMassDestruction Blade aka Takaya Aiba]] has a ChestBlaster weapon named Voltekka, which, after few upgrades, is capable of leveling cities with it. In this show, Tyrion has to stop a person who destroyed a city with a FantasticNuke, in this case a dragon. Also, Takaya ends crippled by the end of the series, compared here, when Tyrion ends serving a crippled ruler instead]].

In another role involving him, he also voiced [[spoiler:[[Manga/{{Naruto}} Minato Namikaze]]]] who was killed by [[spoiler:a guy (Madara Uchiha) using a giant monster (The Nine-tailed Fox aka Kurama) while also destroyed a town with it (Konoha) as a result of a giant GOT-style clusterfuck of conspiracies dating back centuries, just to [[BackFromTheDead returning from the dead]] just to help his son Naruto to finish that same guy in the final battle against Madara]].

** The end of the show brings a bigger one on regards of [[spoiler:Creator/JunFukuyama's]] role as the dub voice of [[spoiler:Bran]], taking into consideration his StarMakingRole as [[spoiler:[[Anime/CodeGeass Lelouch Lamperouge aka Lelouch vi Britannia]]]] at the very end of the second season: In the aforementioned show, [[spoiler:Lelouch became the emperor of Britannia and plans to conquer the world, just like Daenerys planned to do, with the help of a WeaponOfMassDestruction (In ''Code Geass'' with the Sword of Damocles and the F.L.E.I.J.A. warhead and in ''Game of Thrones'' with a dragon) and both Lelouch and Daenerys ended being killed by their closest allies (Suzaku Kururugi and Jon Snow respectively) in similar ways (being stabbed)]]. The main difference here is [[spoiler:while there's two cities destroyed by the F.L.E.I.J.A. in the series, mainly Tokyo and Pendragon, the capital city of Britannia, Lelouch wasn't involved in their destruction, as the former was destroyed accidentally by Suzaku and the latter was nuked by his brother Schneizel el Britannia in an attempt to assure his authority, compared with King's Landing, when Daenerys orders its destruction without guilt. Also, unlike Lelouch, Bran survives the whole thing and became the ruler of Westeros]]. To make the irony even sweeter, [[spoiler:Bran's role is very similar to Lelouch's sister Nunnally, who, just like Bran, she is also crippled and she became the empress of Britannia after his brother was killed]].
