The Actress who was almost Sansa Stark


If you can’t imagine anyone other than the original cast taking on roles in Game of Thrones, prepare to be mystified!

Actress Izzy Meikle-Small, who has had small roles in Never Let Me Go, Great Expectations, and Snow White and The Huntsman, recently revealed that she came very to gaining a coveted role on the show.

“I got to the final two to play Lady Sansa Sark,” Meikle-Small told The Huffington Post at a screening of The Big Wedding.

Meikle-Small ultimately lost the role to Sophie Turner, but says that it’s all for the best: “I was a bit sad, because the show’s massive, but I’m not that unhappy, because they all show a lot of flesh, don’t they? I don’t think my parents would be happy.”

Though the close race for a role may seem surprising, remember that things can get even more jumbled than that– Both Daenerys and Catelyn were played by different actresses in the original Game of Thrones pilot!
