Here's What the Game of Thrones Stars Are Doing Now That the Show Is Over

The show's over, but its cast isn't

After eight seasons, and one water-bottle-graced, kingdom-reorganizing, arguably frustrating series finale, HBO's Game of Thrones is done. And while it's sad to say goodbye to Westeros' Daenerys Targaryen, Arya Stark, Sansa Stark, Jon Snow, and assorted Lannisters, it's reassuring to know that GoT stars Emilia Clarke, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Peter Dinklage aren't going anywhere. These actors and more are starring in the movies and TV shows you're going to be watching in the next few years.

Since Game of Thronespremiered on April 17, 2011, the series has won devoted audiences, critical raves and dozens of Emmy Awards. It's also made household names of its cast.

That last part wasn't a given. When the original Game of Thrones cast was first assembled, only Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, and Sean Bean, who took on the doomed-to-die-sooner-than-the-rest Ned Stark, were familiar faces to U.S. audiences. Dinklage had garnered Oscar buzz for his performance in the 2004 film The Station Agent, while Bean had been a James Bond villain in GoldenEye and the brave Boromir in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. But the HBO series' success ensured fame for all members of the GoT gang.

Now, with Game of Thrones ended, we see the show's stars branching out into Marvel Comics blockbusters (Turner's Dark Phoenix and Williams' The New Mutants), big-screen animated features (Harington's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and Dinklage's The Angry Birds Movie 2), and even a pro-wrestling biopic (Headey's Fighting With My Family). Check out the gallery below to see what's in the cards for the cast.
