If you had the chance to transport yourself into a fictional world you’ve seen in a movie or television show, would you do it? Perhaps you’d want to take a one-day trip to the eery town of Riverdale, perhaps you’d want to go deep into the desert to check out the sights in Westworld, or perhaps you’d want to grab your spaceship and explore the galaxies of Star Wars.
Movies and TV shows give us so many options and allow us to escape our own lives for the day in search of something more exciting and people that are much more interesting. Yes, the actors and actresses who star in these productions may be miles away in the bright lights and palm trees of Hollywood, but we often feel as though they are major parts of our lives.
Throughout their careers and their stints on our favorite TV shows and movies, we get to know every aspect of who they are. We know what their eyes look like in certain lights, we could tell you which way they part their hair, we know which of their co-stars they like and which one they don’t, and we even know what their house looks like – because we totally didn’t stalk their Instagram. Oops.
Yet, once we know everything about these people we start to check out more and more about the show or movie. We check out the other characters, we take in the detailed sets, and we even take more notice of the storyline. Because of this, we often miss major changes that occur within the movie or TV show. You know, like when the directors decide to completely rejig their cast and replace our favorite character! These are the actor replacements you probably didn’t notice…

Unless you’ve been living under a rock in Wildling territory for your whole life, you’ll know that Game of Thrones is kind of a big deal. Yes, there are very few who haven’t either read the books or tried to binge-watch this epic drama series. Because of this, you’ll know that Cersei Lannister isn’t exactly the most popular character in Game of Thrones. She has a weird relationship with her brother, her son turned out to be an absolute nightmare, and she is just a little bit mean. However, we had to feel a little sorry for her when she was paraded through King’s Landing without any clothes on to name and shame her. But did you know this wasn’t actually Lena Headey? The walk was actually undertaken by her body double.
