001 from Stranger Things was almost in Game of Thrones pilot, and played a role in cancelled prequel ‘Bloodmoon’




Game of Thrones had an amazing cast and crew, and they have established themselves as some of the best talents in the television and film industry. They are everywhere, from DC to Marvel to Stranger Things and the upcoming Lord of The Rings TV series. While many would recognize Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H’ghar) as the Russian guard who helped Hopper escape in Stranger Things Season 4, and a few more would remember Joseph Quinn (Koner) as the leader of the Hellfire club Eddie Munson, even less would know of this next Game of Thrones connection we are about to tell you.
