I'm a big fan of both Game of Thrones TV show and The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy and I really want to know if there is any actors who appeared in both of them, because I haven't noticed anyone except for Sean Bean, who played Eddard 'Ned' Stark in GoT and Boromir in LOTR.

    If you include the Hobbit films, Conan Stevens was both the original Gregor Clegane and he played an orc in the Hobbits Jun 27, 2016 at 20:59

No. IMDb has a feature that lets you check for people credited in two separate productions. Sean Bean is the only actor that Game of Thrones and any of the Lord of the Rings movies have in common, though there are several stunts and effects people who worked on both.

GoT and Fellowship of the Ring

GoT and The Two Towers

GoT and Return of the King


As an addendum to Tooth's resourceful find:

Peter Jackson's Hobbit I and Game of Thrones

  • Conan Stevens, GoT: Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane for season 1. PJH1: Bolg the Orc

enter image description here

  • Philip Arditti, GoT: Goat Herder 4x06, PJH: (crew) Script Reader/Story Analyst

Hobbit II

(various crew)

Hobbit III

  • Conan Stevens, as above, and again in PJH3: Keeper of the Dungeons
  • Chris Reilly, GoT 2x10 "Soldier Tom", 4x01 "Morgan". PJH3: Dwarf Lieutenant (uncredited)

    This might seem like a minor quibble, but the question asked about Lord of the Rings trilogy, not the Hobbit trilogy.

The Gate keeper in Bree, in the fellowship of the ring, the one who lets the hobbits in the town, is Walder Frey from Game of Thrones.

  • Do you have the name of the actor? Sep 15, 2016 at 23:36

    This is incorrect. The Gate-Keeper (Harry, in the book) was played by Martyn Sanderson. Walder Frey was played by David Bradley. Although similar in appearance, they're different people; Sanderson was also not alive when Game of Thrones started, having passed in 2009 Sep 16, 2016 at 0:13
