For “Harry Potter” and “Game of Thrones” fans, the worlds keep colliding. Here are 12 actors who have appeared in both series:
Jim Broadbent played the well-intentioned, if somewhat daft, Professor Slughorn who comes out of retirement to teach potions at Hogwarts. He made his debut as Archmaester Ebrose at the Citadel.
Michelle Fairley made a brief appearance in the first part of “Deathly Hallows” as Hermione’s mother. But “Game of Thrones” fans probably know her best as the strong-willed Catelyn Stark.
Natalia Tena is known throughout the “Harry Potter” fandom as the amazing Nymphadora Tonks. She joined “Game of Thrones” as the fearless wildling Osha on the first season until she and Rickon disappeared for a bit during season four and five. She briefly returned on season six, but she was killed.
David Bradley played Argus Filch, the often cruel caretaker at Hogwarts. He played Walder Frey, the awful head of House Frey who betrayed the Stark family but was killed.
Ciarán Hinds played Aberforth Dumbledore, Albus’ brother, in the final “Harry Potter” movie. Fans might recognize him as Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, on “Game of Thrones.”
Freddie Stroma played the slightly obnoxious Cormac McLaggen, who annoyed Hermione during Professor Slughorn’s Christmas party. He showed up during the sixth season of “Game of Thrones” as Dickon Tarly, Sam’s younger brother.
