If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you’ve definitely had this experience: you’re watching a show or movie (like Suits, X-Men: Apocalypse, or even Love Actually) and you see one of your favorite characters seemingly plucked out of Westeros and plopped into a new environment. It’s always weird to see them in a different context than you’re used to, but we love rooting for some of our favorite actors as they make moves outside of the dark world of Game of Thrones.

Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Game of Thrones characters—from the major (Mother of Dragons, anyone) to the short-lived (hey, the body count on this show is off the charts!).

Read on and prepare to have your mind blown as you see some of your Westeros favorites in a whole new light.
