Indira Varma is every bit as beautiful as Ellaria Sand. Of course, the English actress doesn't look quite as otherworldly exotic in real life.

29. Hannah Murray as Gilly

The life of a young single mom is not an easy one. Especially in Wildling territory. Gilly's rough life has clearly taken a toll...

Hannah Murray doesn't have quite the same issues as poor Gilly. That may be why she looks about ten years younger than her GoT character.
