If you’ve ever watched British television, then you’ve probably heard the joke that Britain only has 12 actors. While this little rumor is not entirely true (this list actually features 13 actors), it would explain why we see the same actors in so many different series! The same actors that appear in Harry Potter also appear in Doctor Who and Sherlock among others… and, of course, the highly popular, multi-award nominated Game of Thrones. Here are 13 actors that have appeared in both the Harry Potter and Game of Thrones series:
1. Michelle Fairley in Harry Potter
Michelle Fairley appeared briefly in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 as Hermoine’s mother, as a replacement for Heather Bleasdale. She quickly got her memory wiped, so she didn’t appear too long!
