You are either a Games of Thrones fan, a Harry Potter fan or in-between. Most importantly, you are a fan! Although both Harry Potter and Games of Thrones have been of completely different worlds, some of their actors have appeared in both; it’s the worlds converge!
Here are 11 of the actors who have seen to be appearing in both the series. We bet you weren’t sure about this.

Remember Nymphadora Tonks in Harry Potter? She appeared as Osha – who had travelled with and protected Rickon Stark – in Game of Thrones. In Harry Potter, she went on to have Teddy with Remus Lupin.
2 Michelle Fairley
If you hadn’t seen her much, well, Michelle’s role in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) was merely Hermione Granger’s mother. Interestingly, in Games of Thrones, her fans admire her as the most memorable character Catelyn Stark.

6 Jim Broadbent
Jim, a.ka. Professor Slughorn, is very well known for openly choosing his favourite students for the Slug Club in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. But if you take a good look at Games of Thrones, he quite rocked the role of Archmaester Ebrose – the one who told Sam that he should not try to cure Ser Jorah’s greyscale.
