Here’s How “Game of Thrones” Characters Compare in the Book vs. the Show

Last night the 5th season of “Game of Thrones” premiered, which completely immersed us in the gory land of Westeros, but have you ever wondered how well the characters on the show had been imagined in the books by George R.R. Martin? Illustrator Magali Villeneuve has created a series of portraits based on detailed characteristics taken from Martin’s books. Spoiler alert, Daenerys is still hot and Greyjoy still has that punchable face. Oh and Tyrion is missing a nose.

Magali Villeneuve has been an illustrator for more than eight years, and started by painting book covers in France. She now works for many different companies and publishing houses around the world, including Fantasy Flight Games, Wizards of the Coast, and Cygames. Her work has been featured in role-playing games, video games, collectible cards, and book covers, “Game of Thrones”. She is also the author of the dark fantasy book series La Dernière Terre (Line of Descent).
