Fending off blue-eyed White Walkers and defending your family’s honor against the power-hungry in Game of Thrones takes a lot out of you. Not that I know, but I can imagine it requires immense mental toughness and physical strength. Knights, lords, kings and queens, citizens of the Seven Kingdoms – they all exist in a world where you’re only as good as your word and, often, you don’t live long enough to keep that word. Many times the only way you can cheat death is to learn how to fight with your fists and your sword (just ask Arya).
So, it’s no surprise that some of these GOT stars are quite the fitness buffs. Ahead, you’ll find Game of Thrones actors and actresses showing off their strength and/or flexibility. Because what’s better than standing your ground against your foes? Maybe killer abs.
