How "Game Of Thrones" Characters Have Changed Since Their First Episode Aired

The first season of 'Game of Thrones' premiered on April 17, 2011. A lot of time has passed, and many people have died along the way. However, the following characters are still alive (as of this writing) and have changed so much. Do you remember what they looked like back then? Let's take a look at their past and their present!

21. The Mountain: He appeared for the first time on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. Well, we cannot say that he is definitely "alive", but he still walks around and defends the Lannisters. 

20. Beric Dondarrion: He appeared for the first time on Season Three, Episode Four, titled 'And Now His Watch is Ended'. He is played by actor Richard Dormer. 

19. Lord Varys: First seen on Season One, Episode Three, titled 'Lord Snow'. He hasn't changed that much except for the impending-doom-look on his face. We have all enjoyed his schemes. 

18. Grey Worm: He appeared for the first time on Season Three, Episode Five, titled 'Kissed by Fire'. He was named the leader of the Unsullied right after Daenerys Targaryen saved them from the slavers. 

17. Missandei: She appeared for the first time on Season Three, Episode One, titled 'Valar Dohaeris'. This polyglot quickly became Dany's most trusted confidant. 

16. The Hound: First appeared on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. He was once hated for being one of the Lannisters' henchmen, but things are way different now. 

15. Gendry: He appeared for the first time on Season One, Episode Four, titled 'Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things'. He is a bastard of Robert Baratheon, and everyone wants him to become Arya's love interest. 

14. Tormund Giantsbane: He appeared for the first time on Season Three, Episode One, titled 'Valar Dohaeris'. This wildling redhead quickly became a fan-favorite character. We hope he gets a kiss from Brienne of Tarth. 

13. Brienne of Tarth: She appeared for the first time on Season Two, Episode Three, titled 'What is Dead May Never Die'. She was once loyal to Renly Baratheon but then vowed to protect that Stark's daughters, Sansa and Arya. 

12. Jorah Mormont: He appeared for the first time on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. He is also a close friend of Daenerys and is clearly in love with her. 

11. Davos Seaworth: He appeared for the first time on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. He once worked for Stannis Baratheon but changed his allegiance to Jon Snow. Everyone loves him. 

10. Samwell Tarly: He appeared for the first time on Season One, Episode Four, titled 'Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things'. He is also a fan-favorite character, and sadly, he had to learn about his father and brother's execution in the first episode of Season Eight. 

9. Theon Greyjoy: First seen on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. He was once such an arrogant person, and it took Ramsay's torture - and mutilation - for him to become a man. 

8. Bran Stark: He appeared for the first time on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. It was awesome to see him looking at Jaime Lannister in the first episode of Season Eight. They had not seen each other since the Kingslayer threw him from the tower. 

7. Tyrion Lannister: He also appeared for the first time on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. He was so different back then, and no one knew he was also unlike the rest of the Lannisters. 

6. Cersei Lannister: She is another character that appeared on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. She is still just as hateful as ever, but now this evil woman stands alone. 

5. Jaime Lannister: First seen on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. He used to be just as hateful as his sister, Cersei, but he changed over time. However, it can be hard to escape the errors of a bad past. 

4. Sansa Stark: She also appeared in the first episode of the first season titled 'Winter Is Coming'. Everyone thought she was a selfish little girl, but Sansa went through horrible things and learned. Now, we want to see what else she can become. 

3. Arya Stark: She also appeared for the first time on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. She was always loved for wanting to follow her own way and learn sword fighting. She is an assassin, now, and we want to see how her story ends.

2. Daenerys Targaryen: This is another powerful girl who appeared for the first time on Season One, Episode One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. She was once under the thumb of her evil brother, Viserys, but has risen as the mother of dragons. We want her on the Iron Throne.

1. Jon Snow/Aegon Targaryen: He also appeared for the first time on Episode One, Season One, titled 'Winter Is Coming'. From a simple bastard to the actual heir of the Seven Kingdoms, it is hard to tell if Dany or he will end up winning the game. However, that is what's exciting!

Some of the main characters have perished along the way, but we are still waiting to see what happens to the rest. Sunday cannot come soon enough!
