Getting hired to appear on Game of Thrones must be a mixed blessing for an actor, considering their role’s life expectancy is statistically not very high. Numerous actors have pledged themselves to joining the epic struggle for the Iron Throne, only to see their characters meet untimely (and often gruesome) ends. What has become of those relegated to the Game of Thrones graveyard? We took a look at 10 actors who have been (literally) cut from the show’s roster to see what they’ve been up to since their characters were killed off.
10. Pedro Pascal – Oberyn Martell
Without a doubt the best character introduced in season 4, Pedro Pascal’s Dornish Prince Oberyn Martell was taken away from us far too soon, exiting the show thanks to a gushing, caved-in head courtesy of the beastly Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson). Since that sickening end, Pascal has kept busy with an extended guest appearance on The Mentalist in 2014 and a prominent role in the Netflix drama Narcos, a biopic detailing the crimes of Pablo Escobar. Pascall will be playing Javier Pena, a DEA agent tasked with taking Escobar down. Pascal is back for season two and also has a few other projects lined up, including voiceover work in the video game Dishonored 2 and a role in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.http://www.mtv.com/news/1836210/game-of-thrones-red-viper-death-books/ Source: mtv.com
