16 Game of Thrones Characters Who Are Giving You Major Deja Vu

Earlier this week, the Content Team was nerding out over the latest Game of Thrones episode (not to mention the new Hunger Games sneak peek). As we recounted the action-packed GOT, I mentioned that Theon Greyjoy’s savior was none other than Iwan Rheon from the cult British series, Misfits. (For the uninitiated, think Skins meets Heroes—and yes, you should watch it.)

This led to a morning filled with frequent “Did you know she was in…?” and “No way!” as many of us recalled other roles where we’d seen these actors before. Naturally we couldn’t let these important discoveries go undocumented. Read on to find out why your favorite GOT character is giving you deja vu and get ready for a few nostalgia-inducing, pretty awesome surprises.

Actress: Rose Leslie
Game of Thrones character: Ygritte, Wildling Soldier in Mance Rayder’s Army
Where you saw her before: Gwen Dawson from Downton Abbey

Leslie played shy, yet driven Gwen—our favorite maid-turned-typist. It looks like she carried over the same fiery streak for her sword-wielding role as Ygritte, Jon Snow’s sassy love interest.

Iceland, The Northern Lights, and Aurora Borealis: Packing List

This time of year, most of us are dreaming of tropical getaways. But Nicole, our office manager (also known as She Who Makes Magic Happen), is about to jet off to Iceland. She is taking a much-deserved vacation to do some trekking and spa-ing. Here’s what she’s bringing.

Cold weather trips are not usually on my hit list. But I jumped at the chance to see the Northern Lights and Aurora Borealis at the brightest they have been in past 50 years! My itinerary involves a day out in the Golden Circle (geysers, big waterfalls), a trip to the South Coast to see the famous puffins, a night chasing the Northern Lights, a trip to Reykjavik, and a half day at the Blue Lagoon soaking in the geothermal spa.
