Don't worry if you're still experiencing Game of Thrones withdrawal symptoms. We've found 10 popular cast members from the long-running fantasy series who have TV or movie projects coming very soon, so here's where to watch them between now and the end of the year.
1. Richard Madden (Robb Stark)
The Scottish actor has a lead role in one of fall's most anticipated movies: Eternals, a superhero story steered by Oscar-winning Nomadland director Chloé Zhao. Starring opposite Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, and Kumail Nanjiani, he plays Ikaris, an immortal alien who can fly and project cosmic energy beams from his eyes. It's due in theaters November 5.
2. Diana Rigg (Olenna Tyrell)
The much loved actress sadly passed away last September, but her final movie, Edgar Wright's psychological thriller Last Night in Soho, opens in theaters October 29. She plays Miss Collins, an eccentric landlady whose boarding house in swinging '60s London isn't quite what it seems. Early reviews suggest it makes for a fitting farewell.
3. Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister)
This veteran British thesp is seemingly never out of work. You can catch him next in The King's Man, Matthew Vaughn's eagerly anticipated Kingsman prequel movie, which glides into theaters December 22. Dance forms part of a stellar ensemble cast that includes Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Stanley Tucci, Matthew Goode, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
4. Jim Broadbent (Archmaester Ebrose)
The Oscar-winning actor's latest project is The Duke, a quirky-looking British film about a taxi driver who steals a famous painting from London's National Gallery. It may sound like a far-fetched premise, but it's actually based on a true story. The movie – which co-stars Helen Mirren – arrived in theaters Friday, so if you're intrigued, check it out while you can.
5. Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister)
Headey swaps her wine glass for a firearm in Gunpowder Milkshake, a fizzy action thriller movie that debuted on Netflix in July. She and Doctor Who fave Karen Gillan play mother-and-daughter assassins who team up to save a little girl from a group of rival assassins. Another Game of Thrones alum, Ralph Ineson a.k.a. Dagmer Cleftjaw, appears in a supporting role.
6. Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane)
The Norwegian actor is a new recruit for season two of The Witcher, which premieres December 17 on Netflix. Joining a cast led by Henry Cavill, he plays Nevellen, a charismatic man from an aristocratic family who has been saddled with a monstrous curse. Color us very intrigued.
7. Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm)
It was announced at Comic-Con in July that Anderson will appear in the new season of Doctor Who – due to premiere on BBC America later this year – as a recurring character called Vinder. "Not only has a lifelong dream of mine now been fulfilled, but to be playing a character as fun, adventurous, and dynamic as Vinder is the cherry on top. This is very cool," Anderson said at the time.
8. Michael McElhatton (Roose Bolton)
The Irish actor has a supporting role in The Last Duel, Ridley Scott's upcoming historical drama movie about the last legally sanctioned duel in France's history. He's in fine company, sharing the screen with Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Adam Driver, and Killing Eve's Jodie Comer and Harriet Walter. It opens October 15, so there's not too long to wait.
9. Ciarán Hinds (Mance Rayder) and 10. Aidan Gillen (Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish)
Irish actors Hinds and Gillen have key roles in AMC+’s latest original series, Kin, a gripping gang drama set in Dublin's criminal underbelly. Gillen plays the coolheaded patriarch of criminal clan the Kinsellas, while Hinds plays their power-hungry associate-cum-rival Eamonn Cunningham. It launches today (September 9) on AMC+, so what are you waiting for?
