If you're new, Subscribe! → http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Looper Most actors would probably love a chance to score a role in HBO's Game of Thrones, and there've been plenty of A-list celebs who've tried to get on the hit series to no avail. But there was a time when that wasn't the case. Whether it was because of the grueling overseas filming schedule, gripes with the cast's payscale, or sheer confusion over the George R.R. Martin-inspired story, here's a look at some actors who refused Game of Thrones roles... Tamzin Merchant | 0:27 Jennifer Ehle | 1:02 Jamie Campbell Bower | 1:35 Brian Cox | 2:08 Dominic West | 3:20 Gillian Anderson | 4:09 Jonathan Pryce | 4:53 Perdita Weeks | 5:48 Ray Stevenson | 6:35 Lily Allen | 7:22 Read more here → http://www.looper.com/37518/actors-refused-game-thrones-roles/ Why Hollywood Won't Cast These Actors Anymore https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOzaghBOlEsfALW06V-pzLiPPGvIhE49U Why Hollywood Won't Cast Seann William Scott Anymore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaVtx2wfTcE&list=PLOzaghBOlEsfALW06V-pzLiPPGvIhE49U&index=11 Why Hollywood Won't Cast Brendan Fraser Anymore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flhuCZOAFv8&list=PLOzaghBOlEsfALW06V-pzLiPPGvIhE49U&index=12 Why Hollywood Won't Cast Tobey Maguire Anymore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKeWgYsky6A&list=PLOzaghBOlEsfALW06V-pzLiPPGvIhE49U&index=13 Why Hollywood Won't Cast Alyson Hannigan Anymore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8UfxLgtkuY&list=PLOzaghBOlEsfALW06V-pzLiPPGvIhE49U&index=1 Why Hollywood Won't Cast Tom Welling Anymore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8STwWvhz2s&list=PLOzaghBOlEsfALW06V-pzLiPPGvIhE49U&index=5 Why Hollywood Wants No Part Of Rob Schneider Anymore https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng2A5rk3y8w&list=PLOzaghBOlEsfALW06V-pzLiPPGvIhE49U&index=4 Website → http://www.looper.com/ Like us → https://facebook.com/loopermoviestv/ Follow us → https://twitter.com/looper Instagram → https://instagram.com/looperhq/ Vine → https://vine.co/looperhq Looper is the go-to source for the movies, TV shows and video games we all love.

Once again Tamzin Merchant did the first pilot and they remplaced her she didn't refused the part !!! And instead 3years later she Was in Salem (good tv show by the way ) for a major role as Anne Hale tho ! I love Emilia clark as Daenerys , i assume it Was a good décision from the production !!!

Brian Cox is a decent actor. Not as good as he thinks he is, but decent. And he comes across as money obsessed. And the repulsive Lily Allen lying again ? Seems her brother has as low opinion of her as the rest of us !!! :-D

and Brian Cox was the original Hannibal Lechter, in the good first film version of "Red Dragon" It's called "Manhunter" and most definitely worth a look.

Tamzin Merchant WAS cast... and even filmed the pilot. However, she was cut when HBO execs and some test audiences deemed her to be dull as fuck.
Cheryl Crowe (1 month ago)
i'm glad Tamzin Merchant stepped out as Emilia Clark better suited the role,she had the exact amount of sex appeal the character needed.
Moeed555 (1 month ago)
All the actors who eventually played the characters were really perfect. I am so glad they were chosen.

I bet Bryan Cox would've been Jeor Mormont. It was either that or Daenerys.

Tamzin Merchant didn't refuse the role -- she was replaced because the pilot was poorly received in an early screening.
IcePrincess751 (2 months ago)
Tamzin Merchant as Dany?I'm so glad she refused to go back for the reshoots,because I just can't see her playing a character who could pull off the later seasons when Danaerys became strong,confident,and an incredibly clever leader.She's a wonderful actress and was awesome in the show Salem,so I was happy she took part in that one.Emilia Clarke is perfect in this role,and we're all lucky she was the gal who took over for Tamzin:)

You made Brian Cox sound like a first grader. Also, you can tell lilly was probably excited and really into the role, since she read the script up to the horse scene.

actually, according to HBO, the original pilot of GoT was a disaster, director, several actors, heavy rewrites, but Tamzin Merchant did not refuse the role of everyone's favorite little dragon pet mommy, it was said "she just looked too cheerful, like a cheerleader, and her acting style reaffirmed this, despite her role in the Tudors, she was just not right." George Martin

Brain Cox refused it for MONEY and when asked about it, continues to go on and on about money, saying he wants to do it NOW cause they have a lot of money, and he hopes to get the chance, if the money is right. Like, gtfover yourself, bruh. It isnt all about the denero.

Imagine if Dinklage had said no, who could’ve possibly played Tyrion. I think they should’ve tried to get Ewan McGregor to play Jamie, but then again I could never picture Obi-Wan as a villain.
