We Took ‘Game Of Thrones’ And Replaced That Cast With All Latino Actors. Here’s The Result
If you’re a “Game of Thrones” fan then you were probably very excited when Chilean actor, Pedro Pascal, was cast as Dornish Prince Oberyn Martell. But like many of us, you must have been left wanting to see more Latinx representation on the show. This is why we decided to reimagine this epic saga with an all-Latino cast. If you think you can come up with better GoT Latino casting choices let us know in the comment section below.
Daenerys Targaryen: Tessa Thompson
Who better to play the role of Daenery than the badass Tessa Thompson. We already know that she is able to rock out as a superhero like she did in “Thor: Ragnarok.”
Jon Snow: Diego Boneta
Mexican actor, Diego Boneta, not only has some resemblance to Jon Snow but he’s also been trained in sword fighting. He did play the role of a Jewish rebel in the miniseries “The Dovekeeper.”
Sansa Stark: Bella Thorne
What better redheaded Latina than Bella, who looks more like a Season 7 Sansa. Definitely less childlike and more like a woman ready to take charge of her kingdom.
Cersei Lannister: Shakira
Blonde wavy hair, beautiful and known all around the land.. Those are all things the Colombian superstar has in common with the Queen Cersei.
Khal Drogo: Marlon Teixeira
There’s no denying it, Brazilian model Marlon Teixeira looks like Khal’s baby [hotter] brother. All you need to do is add some beard hair extensions and some heavy smokey eye makeup and you have an instant Dothraki.
Jamie Lannister: William Levy
What about Cuban actor William Levy? Not only is he tall, blonde and well-built but he and Shakira would make a great couple… can you imagine how beautiful the “Baratheon“ kids would look?
Lord Varys: Juan Gabriel
Flashy outfits? Loving personality? There’s no question about it, Juan Gabriel would be the perfect choice to play the role of Lord Varys. Obviously he is dead, however, they do have holograms nowadays so, there you go.
Arya Stark: Selena Gomez
The short-haired brunette could easily become the youngest of the Stark clan. Maybe this could be Selena’s crossover to more dramatic roles on TV. Plus, she’d be able to contribute to the soundtrack.
Grey Worm: Bruno Mars
You might be asking why are we pairing these two Afro-Caribbeans musicians but have you noticed how much they look alike? It’s like they’re actually related to one another.
Missandei: Nathalie Emmanuel
Who better to play the role Missandei than the OG Missandei actress Nathalie Emmanuel who is also Dominican???
Catelyn Stark: Salma Hayek
Who better to play the role of the Fierce Lady of Winterfell, who will do whatever it takes to protect her kin, than Mexican beauty Salma Hayek. Coincidentally, she has already played the part of a medieval Noblewoman in “Tale of Tales.”
Margaery Tyrell: Alexis Bledel
When you need a Latina with big blue eyes and a porcelain-like complexion, just like Margeary, it has to be Alexis Bledel.
Joffrey Baratheon: Frankie Muniz
There’s probably no actor that looks more like Joffrey Baratheon than “Malcolm In The Middle” star, Frankie Muniz. As such, he would make the perfect match to play this brat.
Ellaria Sand: Eva Mendes
These beauties might not be twins but they sure have the same goddess-like poise needed for the role of strong and beautiful Ellaria Sand.
Lady Olenna Tyrell: Ivonne Coll
Remember Jane’s abuelita from Jane The Virgin? Well, we think she would make a great (maybe a bit younger) version of bad**s Lady Olena.
Bran Stark: Tyler Alvarez
They may not be up at the beginning of the list but Isaac and Tyler are probably one of the pairs who have the strongest resemblance. Honestly, it’s hard to tell them apart.
Melisandre: Camille Belle
The Indie star, Camilla Belle and her piercing eyes are definitely the perfect choice for the all-powerful Red Woman. Just look at how well she would be able to pull the look off.
Hodor: Luis Guzman
Maybe Hodor and Guzman don’t have the same height but they sure can pull that scruffy medieval look. It also helps that everyone loves Guzman.
Petyr Baelish: Raul Esparza
Some might not know who this Littlefinger look-alike is but if you’re a fan of “Law & Order: SVU” then surely you’ll notice that Esparza is none other than ADA Rafael Barba.
Theon Greyjoy: Diego Luna
The Mexican actor may not be a dirty blonde with super pale skin but he sure would make a great Theon.
