The Grandmaester mentioned a show Samantha Spiro had been upthread. The same actress (mother Tarley) played Angela Merkel's (Tracey Ullman) right-hand woman in a sketch show featuring one of the worst (to me at least) pop songs of the 1980s. https://youtu.be/7VjpIjxgPSY I don't have a clip but she also played Emilia Clarke's character's (I think) mother in the film Me Before You. Charles Dance (Tywin) was in that film too.

Quite a few GoT alumni popped up in Chernobyl, which also shared the same casting team. I noticed

Maester Luwin
Dagmer Cleftjaw
Lord Commander Mormont
Pyp from the Nights Watch
Roose Bolton
Jory Cassel
Shagga son of Dolf :P

Billy Postlethwaite was a Lannister soldier and one of the reactor engineers
Laura Elphinstone was in 'The Bells' as the mother with child, plays similar part here.
I may have missed some!

It's not a very good quality clip but NCW in his pre-GOT days played a baddie in a film called "My Name is Modesty" (based on Modesty Blaise the UK comic strip character). I saw the film on TV some time ago - it was one of those films which were okay but not great. https://youtu.be/bX4qto_KN7U

I saw the film 'Blinded By The Light' the other day. Dean Charles Chapman (Tommen) was in it.
Also a young actress who looked familiar but who I couldn't quite place. It was Eliza Williams who played the young Cersei in the scene where she went to consult Maggy The Frog.
