“Game of Thrones”: Out of Hair and Makeup!

Game of Thrones Makeup

Many casual Game of Thrones fans were shocked recently when star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau popped up unexpectedly in a Saturday Night Live skit not looking like Jamie Lannister after he’s been dragged through pig dung for eight months. So I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the fine-looking folks currently acting their little hearts out from under assorted beards, scars, and questionable sartorial choices. Hide not thine light under a bushel, Game of Thrones! Especially if that bushel is made of wigs.

In 2003, Brian launched the world's first website devoted to horror film from a gay perspective (CampBlood.org), mining an untapped (and occasionally unintentional) source of entertainment and bringing together a huge and colorful population of gay horror fans and filmmakers. When he's not pulling skeletons out of closets, Brian writes reviews for horror megasite Bloody-Disgusting.com, general film site Freezedriedmovies.com, and can be found on the ever-informative RottenTomatoes.com. Brian is also a filmmaker, having produced, written, and directed two shorts (the dark romantic comedy An Apple a Day and the eerie suspense piece Two Story House) that have played at film festivals worldwide and left audiences generally uneasy. A born-and-bred Midwesterner, Brian studied Mass Media and Film at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. (I know – crazy, right?) before fleeing the district for the warm and occasionally stinky shores of NYC. Brian is a proud member of the Online Film Critics Society, loving husband to illustrator Andy Swist, and benevolent overlord of their two cats.
