“Game of Thrones” has never been afraid to shed some blood, even when that blood has belonged to some of the show’s biggest characters. As a result, some major names have fallen over the last seven seasons, and in many ways.

Whether they were murdered by poison or bloodshed, in battle or in a private home, their deaths were certainly shocking.  Of course, the end of a character’s run hasn’t always meant it was the last time fans would see actors from the HBO series.

Take a look below to see what some fan favorites have been up to since their untimely deaths.

Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon):

The show’s initial king may have died in Season One, but Addy has been keeping busy with a steady stream of work since then. Some of his TV roles since then have included ones on “The Syndicate,” “Trollied,” “Atlantis” and “New Blood.” He also voiced Clyde the Horse in the 2018 theatrical release of “Mary Poppins Returns.”

Gethin Anthony (Renly Baratheon):

Following Renley’s death by shadow baby, Anthony went on to take several roles in movies and TV shows, most notably portraying Charles Manson in both “Aquarius: The Summer Of Love” and “Aquarius.”

Sean Bean (Eddard Stark):

Though Ned Stark lost his head early into the series, that wasn’t the end of Bean’s career. Among the shows he’s appeared on have been “Legends,” “Broken,” “The Frankenstein Chronicles,” “The Oath” and “Medici.”

David Bradley (Walder Frey):

After Walder Frey realized what happened when he left one wolf alive, Bradley not only went on to star as Merlin in “Trollhunters:  Tales of Arcadia,” but to contribute his voice and reprise his role as cantankerous Argus Filch in the “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery” video game.  

Oona Chaplin (Talisa Stark):

Talisa Stark’s time on “Game of Thrones” might have been short-lived, but Chaplin has been staying on-screen plenty. Starting in 2020, fans will get to see plenty of what she can do as she voices Varang in “Avatar 2,” and continues in the next three installments of the franchise that are scheduled to follow.

Dean-Charles Chapman (Tommen Baratheon):

Since the end of his time on “Game of Thrones,” Chapman has portrayed the role of Castor on “Into the Badlands.”

Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister):

Tywin may not have gotten the death he wanted (but probably deserved), but that wasn’t the last fans saw of Dance. He not only has gone on to appear on several TV shows, but he also reunited with former co-star Emilia Clarke in the 2016 film “Me Before You.”  

Stephen Dillane (Stannis Baratheon):

After his time as Stannis Baratheon closed out, Dillane went on to star as Viscount Halifax in the Oscar-nominated film “Darkest Hour.” 

Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell):

Fans who are still missing Margaery Tyrell may have seen Dormer in “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” and other titles, but they’ll also be able to see her in the upcoming fourth season of “Penny Dreadful.”  

Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark):

 Catelyn Stark may not have come back as Lady Stoneheart on “GOT,” but Fairley did get to star on “Resurrection” after her time on the HBO series ended. She also has been seen in “24: Live Another Day,” "The Lizzie Borden Chronicles” and “Fortitude.” 

Aiden Gillen (Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish):

It still feels like yesterday that Petyr Baelish was finally taken down, but that could be because Gillen certainly has been keeping busy. Since Littlefinger’s throat was cut, the actor who brought him to life has starred in “Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”  

Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon):

 After his reign of terror as Joffrey Baratheon ended in 2014, Gleeson actually retired from acting.  

Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon):

 After her character was cruelly burned at the stake, Ingram went on to star as Becky in “Free Rein.”

Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell):

 After Loras died with pretty much the rest of House Tyrell, Jones went on to find new life in Netflix’s brief series of Marvel TV shows, portraying Danny Rand in “The Defenders,” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist.”

Sibel Kekilli (Shae):

Since her time as the “funny whore,” who betrayed the man who loved her, Kekilli went on to portray Sarah Brandt on “Tatort,” and Madina Taburova on “Bullets.”

Rose Leslie (Ygritte):

Besides marrying her former co-star, Kit Harington, in 2018, Leslie went on to star on the CBS All-Access show “The Good Fight.”

Harry Lloyd (Viserys Targaryen):

In addition to several TV projects, Lloyd has taken his golden crown into movies as well, taking on roles in several Oscar-nominated films, including “The Iron Lady” and “The Theory of Everything.” He also reprised Viserys in “Game of Thrones Conquest and Rebellion: An Animated History of The Seven Kingdoms.”

Richard Madden (Robb Stark):

After Robb Stark’s death, Madden took his turn as Prince Charming in the 2015 live-action remake of “Cinderella,” before taking on roles in “Medici” and “Bodyguard.” He can next be seen in the Elton John biopic, “Rocketman.”

Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo):

Khal Drogo may still be a role that Momoa holds close to his heart, but he has been making sure to stay busy since landing the role of Arthur Curry, a.k.a. “Aquaman.”

Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell):

 Oberyn’s short stint on “Game of Thrones” was memorable, and Pascal is a memorable actor—one who hasn’t been dancing from one project to the next almost as quickly as Oberyn moved with a sword. Not only did he star as Javier Peña in Netflix’s “Narcos,” but he also starred as Whiskey in “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” and Pietro Alvarez in “If Beale Street Could Talk.”

Jonathan Pryce (High Sparrow):

Post being blown up by Wildfire, the man behind the High Sparrow went on to projects including “The Wife,” “The Man Who Invented Christmas” and “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.”

Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton):

Ramsay’s super satisfying death after the Battle of the Bastards led to roles on “Riviera” and “Inhumans” for Rheon. 

Diana Rigg (Olenna Tyrell):

After the Queen of Thorns got in her last jab, Rigg went on to find roles in “Detectorists” and “Victoria.”  

Peter Vaughan (Aemon Targaryen):

 Maester Aemon wound up being Vaughan’s final role, as the actor passed away on December 6, 2016, just over a year after his character’s own peaceful death on the show.

"Game of Thrones" Season 8 premieres Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. EDT on HBO.
