There’s been a lot of talk about the Benioff and Weiss Star Wars trilogy lately. First we learned that the new films will likely be set during the time of the Old Republic. That opens the door for Legends fan-favorite character Darth Revan to appear on the big screen. We also learned that Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham may be joining his GoT showrunners on the new Star Wars project. That got us thinking… what other Game of Thrones actors might we want to see in the galaxy far, far away? Here are our top five.
Top Five GoT Actors to Appear in New Star Wars Trilogy
5. Jason Momoa
Let’s just get this obvious one out of the way. Momoa appeared in Game of Thrones as the hulking and brooding Khal Drogo. The role put Momoa solidly on the Hollywood map; now he’s one of Tinseltown’s hottest commodities. He’d be perfect to play a Sith of the Old Republic. If not playing Darth Revan himself, perhaps he could play a Sith warrior like Scourge. That character appeared in the 2011 Del Rey novel The Old Republic: Revan, by Drew Karpyshyn.
4. Maisie Williams
Maisie Williams’ character Arya Stark has grown from a adventure-seeking tomboy to vengeful murderer over the course of seven Game of Thrones seasons. Clearly the actress knows how to wield a sword. That skill would come in handy if she were to portray a young, Jedi padawan. A sub-plot could follow her journey through a new Star Wars trilogy towards becoming one of the Knights of the Old Republic.
