12 Actors who went from ‘Harry Potter’ to ‘Game of Thrones’

“Harry Potter and “Game of Thrones” are completely different worlds.

But the worlds converge thanks to actors who have appeared in both.

While some of the crossovers may be recognizable, like Natalia Tena as both Tonks and Osha, others may come as a surprise.

Here are 12 actors that have appeared in both series

1. Catelyn Stark as Hermione’s mother

Michelle Fairley made a brief appearance in the first part of “Deathly Hallows” as Hermione’s mother. But “GOT” fans might know her best as the strong-willed Catelyn Stark.

2. Wildling Osha as Tonks

Natalia Tena has known throughout the “Harry Potter” fandom as the amazing Nymphadora Tonks, but don’t call her Nymphadora.

She joined “GOT” as the fearless wildling Osha in the first season until she and Rickon disappeared for a bit during season four and five. She briefly returned in season six, but she was killed by Ramsay Bolton when she tried to stab him. RIP, Osha.

3. Walder Frey as Argus Filch
