HBO’s Game of Thrones has an all-star cast with a wide range of characters in each corner of the Realm. This is only natural considering we have so many stories from the Wall to Dorne to King’s Landing and all the way across the Narrow Sea in Meereen. However, because of numerous storylines (and perhaps budgeting), we haven’t seen a couple of characters in a while.
And it’s not just minor characters that have been missing either but pretty important ones as well who have all played a key role in the story. Here’s a look at some of the characters that have disappeared from the show.

5. Edmure Tully
“The Rains of Castamere” was a monumental episode, also known as the episode that brought us the Red Wedding. Of course, it marked the end of Robb and Catelyn Stark, among others, but the actual groom of the wedding is barely talked about.
Edmure Tully – Catelyn’s brother – was the one who ended up getting married to one of Walder Frey’s daughters (or was it granddaughters?). At first, he thought it would be a punishment but then when he saw his beautiful bride, he changed his mind and was ready to proceed with the marriage – something which Robb thought would give him the edge in his battle against Tywin Lannister.
Little did Edmure know that while he and his bride were being escorted away for the bedding ceremony, his family was getting slaughtered by the Freys and Boltons. In the books, he is kept as a prisoner by Walder Frey and while we’ve only seen the Lord of the Crossing once since that fateful episode, it’s still a bit odd that we’ve not heard from or seen Edmure at all since.
