There are few things that I love more than actors in period dramas frolicking about the earth in regular clothes, you guys. Â I’m serious. Â The list goes: kittens acting out Disney movies, french fries, Jonah Hill‘s fake movie penis, and period actors in modern garb (see also: OITNB cast polished and pressed). Â So clearly, there are few things better than that. Â Seeing the cast ofÂ Game of ThronesÂ being not only normal and modern-day, but at the BEACH? Â Squals of delight abound.
Redditor Join_You_In_The_SunÂ shared the photo of the cast taking a break from the sordid world of incest, murder, and dragons by enjoying some sun and surf in Croatia. Brienne of Tarth looking like a Twiggy double? Â Not something I was expecting, and it’s just as amazing as it sounds. Conleth Hill (Varys) is dressed exactly like his character would dress if he were a sassy eunuch in 2014, if you ask me. Â AndÂ Lena Headey is slightly less terrifying when she’s laughing about something funny and not over the doom Cersei inflicts on pretty much everyone. Â This photo also made me remember that I have a crush onÂ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and that I still cannot properly pronounce his real name, sooo Jaime Lannister it is! Â Also, it goes without saying: Peter Dinklage <3<3<3.
My mind was blown when I saw this cast all dressed up on the red carpet last year, looking their snazzy best. Â But there’s something about the casual, spontaneous nature of this beach shot that not only warms my Westeros-loving heart but also makes me super eager for the season four premiere next weekend.
