May, 30, 2014: Game of Thrones will never be the same again after this.

Playing a character with total conviction is every actor's dream. Every individual who faces the camera has the same desire, which is to portray the role assigned to him or her in a manner that mesmerizes the viewers and leads them into believing that the on-screen persona is for real.

But that cloak which the people have grown accustomed to seeing these actors in is temporary. Once the camera stops rolling, artists abandon their on-screen persona and return to their daily lives.

They then move on to other projects, but hardcore fans of their previous work continue to remain in that euphoria.

HBO TV series Game of Thrones has a similar story. Its actors have done such a convincing job with their roles that seeing them playing other characters seems strange. Down below are a collection of images that will provide a shock to your system and try to repaint the image you have in your mind of these personalities:
