If the characters from Game of Thrones were into action sports, which ones would they do?
To answer this all-important question, we conducted a careful study of the TV show (by which we mean watching all four series twice through while pretending to “work”) and came up with the following. What do
you think? Which one would do your sport?
Tip: Use the left
/ right arrow keys
Rob Stark - BMX
He's northern, unpretentious and can't be doing with airs and graces. Also, he's not afraid of shedding a bit of blood to get where he wants. Yep, Rob would be a great BMXer.
Petyr Baelish - Road Cycling
Little Finger would definitely be into road cycling. Think about it: He's small, skinny and has expensive tastes. He's also a crafty tactician...
Jaime Lannister - Skiing
Not only is Jaime absolutely loaded, he's got the posh-as-hell accent and the floppy public schoolboy hair. If he wasn't slaying kings he'd be hanging out in Klosters with princes William and Harry...
The Hound - Rock Climbing
The Hound would be an excellent climber. He's got the reach and the weather-beaten face, plus he's strong as hell. One-finger pull-ups? No problem!
Jon Snow - Snowboarding
It's in the name isn't it? Plus he's young, cocky and keeps reminding people that 'winter is coming'. Jon Snow would be a snowboarder for sure.
Lysa Arran - Skydiving
She's fond of 'making people fly' by pushing them out through the 'moon door', a hole not dissimilar to the door of an airplane. If Lysa Arran could do any action sport it would be skydiving.
Khal Drogo - Downhill Mountain Biking
He's hard as nails, so you know he wouldn't mind the brutal slams and he's so built he'd barely need any body armour. Plus, have you seen him ride a horse? Khal Drogo would be giving the Athertons and co a run for their money on the World Cup circuit.
Theon Greyjoy - Rollerblading
Much-maligned, misunderstood and mercilessly picked on (by the bastard who makes him into Reek), Theon Greyjoy is basically a rollerblader already.
Ned Stark - Surfing
Forget the whole winter shit - he's old, he's wise and he's got long hair and a beard: Ned Stark would be a surfer. He'd ride a solid longboard too, not one of those fancypants Kings Landing-made short boards.
Daenerys Targaryen - Hang-gliding
The Mother of Dragons would leap at the chance to get into hang-gliding. She'd be all over soaring round the skies with her three babies around her. And any man who stole her airspace had better watch the f*ck out!
Brienne of Tarth - Motocross
Brienne of Tarth has got petrolhead written all over her. She's tough as nails, doesn't take shit from anyone and can handle a horse (and no doubt an MX bike) like a proper badass. I reckon she'd slay Travis Pastrana in an FMX comp too - just like she did the Hound.
Tyrion Lannister - Skateboarding
Tyrion would obviously be the skater in the crew. Society may call him an outcast but he doesn't give a f*ck, he's having more fun than all of them.
Joffrey Baratheon - Micro Scooting
Everyone's least favourite GOT character would definitely ride a micro scooter. He's that cocky little gobshite no-one likes, but who's mummy tells them they're wonderful.
