From Game of Thrones to Walking Dead To MCU – Where our favourite actors have been! Our favourite actors who have starred in MCU are Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead Alumni.
The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones had a hold on pop culture for the majority of the time it was on-screen even though the last few years of these shows lost the shine it once had.
The cast remains to have benefited the most from being on those shows and many have moved on to greater things. One of them being the Marvel Cinematic Universe, of course. While some actors we have witnessed in minor roles some have had their mark on the MCU.

Let’s take a rundown of the cast who have since made an appearance in MCU and as what.
In Game of Thrones, Dormer plays the notorious mastermind Margaery Tyrell who marries two of the Kings and almost makes a Queen. Margaery was ousted by Cercei in politics and ultimately killed. But her skills in politics and seduction techniques work just fine in Captain America: The First Avenger as Lorraine who charms the Captain rather effortlessly.
Gurira has been portraying katana-wielding Michonne in The Walking Dead, a role she has portrayed for ten seasons and made her debut in the MCU as the loyal general of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje, Okoye in Black Panther and made two further appearances in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. The fearless leader no matter what universe!
Maisie Williams is set to star in the super delayed Marvel film The New Mutants. She plays the character, Ronnie Sinclair, aka Wolfsbane a Scottish mutant whose powers are similar to that of a werewolf. Williams played the much-beloved Arya Stark exceptionally well on Game of Thrones and she literally grew up before our eyes from a rebellious daughter to an assassin to an incredible warrior. Here’s to hoping we see the same level of brilliance and wit in the MCU movie as well.
Some people just have a knack for playing problematic yet lovable characters we would love to hate but just can’t. Rooker has a special place in our hearts. He appeared as Peter Quill’s adoptive dad Yondu in Guardians of The Galaxy volume I and Volume II. In The Walking Dead Rooker brought to life Merle Dixon who found some semblance before his death.
You didn’t think we’d forget her, did you? Sophie Turner plays the legendary role of Jean in X-Men Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix and does a brilliant job too. Sansa Stark her other character on Game of Thrones saw her transform from a young naïve girl who over the course of hardships she faces in life at the hand of others becomes a formidable player, one who is to be feared and ultimately the Queen of North. Turner brings the same vulnerability and skills to her character in the MCU as well proving she is an actor to look out for.
Bernthal in the first two seasons of The Walking Dead starred as Shane Walsh, Rick’s best friend who he had to eventually kill thanks to Shane’s descend into madness. Where you might remember him from is the hit series Daredevil where he stars as ‘The Punisher’ in the second season. This role led to an off-spin series with his character in the titular role for two seasons before Netflix cancelled the show.
Rheon gained popularity by playing one of the most hated characters in television history as the notorious diabolical madman Ramsay Bolton in Game Of Thrones. But he played his character so well that soon Rheon was playing the antagonist Maximus on MCU’s short-lived show Inhumans. Although Maximus is a far more sympathetic character than the evil Ramsay Bolton, their ends are rather similar and quite grisly.
And last but not the least Richard Madden and Kit Harrington who played brothers on Game Of Thrones as Robb Stark and Jon Snow are set to appear in the forthcoming Marvel series Eternals and will be joining big names like Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjani, Salma Hayek.
We can’t wait to see these actors kill it anywhere they go and all thank the MCU for thinking of its fans and treating us with our favourite actors being badass superheroes and villains too.
