She of the red robe wearing, flame vision seeing, child sacrificing ways — has found most of us’ wrath and spite for her treacherous ways. If you haven’t guessed yet, we’re talking about Melisandre who of course is a central character in the Game of Thrones series.
Now we might know her as the Red Lady, but long before her stint with GoT, she was… A pop star!
We dug deep and found Melisandre isn’t the only one with a background in music! We found you some other characters of the series with a musical career. Here’s a glimpse into a sound of their music!
1. Carice Van Houten – Melisandre
Yes! We’re sure, just like us you too cannot imagine the poised and graceful of a lady like her to be swaying to pop music and talking about hearts and heartbreaks. So we unearthed her albums from the past and found you guys some pretty good numbers to hum much! This one’s our favourite-
2. Jerome Flynn – Bronn
Before he was Jaime Lannister’s right hand man, actor Jerome Flynn had a fairly successful career covering classic pop songs as part of the musical duo Robson & Jerome. They have produced dozens of videos similar to this cover of The Drifters’ “Up on the Roof” which is a beautiful gift to the world. Their music videos live somewhere between perfectly corny and undeniably endearing. Somehow, Bronn really doesn’t seem so tough after seeing him dance like this!
3. Iwan Rheon – Ramsay Bolton
Iwan Rheon may be etched in our minds for his roles of the menacing Bolton Bastard on Game of Thrones or his heroic arc as Simon on BBC’s Misfits. But it turns out that he’s even a pretty damn good musician. “Dinard” off Rheon’s first studio album released in 2015 is a fine representation of the beautiful music he’s capable of.
4. Natalia Tena – Osha
Alright, we’re just going to call this one a salad. Natalia Tena is the front-woman and accordionist of the alternative/ska/swing/salsa/folk/gypsy-rock/coo-coo-bananas band Molotov Jukebox. It hits on so many genres that you really can’t help but love some aspect of it and, in a weird way, just feels right for music produced by a Wildling from beyond The Wall.
5. Kristian Nairn – Hodor
Nairn may be the one musician on this list who has truly embraced both worlds and struck while the iron is hot by using his Game of Thrones fame to further promote his already impressive musical career. His ‘Rave of Thrones’ tour is a phenomenon that brings together GOT and EDM fans from all walks of life.
6. Michiel Huisman – Daario Naharis
Well, your guess is as good as ours as to what this song is about, but Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman) can kill it even if he’s not out murdering folks in the name of his Khaleesi. The Dutch actor is also a singer songwriter and has appeared (and performed) on shows like Nashville where you’d never guess that he wasn’t brought up on country music!
7. Thomas Brodie Sangster – Jojen Reed
Now, some might associate Thomas Brodie-Sangster with the series only, but when he’s not helping Bran Stark get to the three-eyed crow, he’s playing bass in a band called Winnet with his mother singing lead vocals.
8. Joel Fry – Hizdahr Zo Loraq
Before playing a character with a bad Scrabble hand for a name, Fry and his band Animal Circus put out an EP back in 2012 that has some pretty catchy tunes. Their music exists somewhere between a jam band and folk. Although the band is no longer together, their YouTube channel continues to share music created by the individual members as recently as December 2016.
9. Rory Mccann – Sandor ‘The Hound’
Maybe this one shouldn’t count, as this is something McCann might file under childhood mishief rather than bona fide music. But hey, we’re really into his old band Thundersoup. The video above might be the only proof of the band that once was, which is a bit of a shame considering how coll they were!
10. Jacob Anderson – Greyworm
We saved our favourite for last: Grey or Jacob goes by “Raleigh Ritchie” in his musical life. Producing some intensely catchy pop music that ranges from love ballads to party anthems, we have to admit that Ritchie’s is our favourite music producer of the Game of Thrones cast. In our opinion, “The Greatest” needs to find its way onto everyone’s playlists.
We hope to have added some good numbers for keeps in your playlist!
