Paul Blackthorne + Stephen Dillane as Stannis Baratheon – Celebrity Doppelgangers
Last night, March 31, was the premiere of season three of HBO’s drama ‘Game of Thrones’ — and it featured wannabe king Stannis Baratheon (played by Stephen Dillane) looking as much like actor Paul Blackthorne as possible. Maybe it was all that dreary lighting on Dragonstone?
Paul Blackthorne — a Brit who’s never allowed to use his real accent — currently plays Detective Quentin Lance on the CW show ‘Arrow,’ which is based on superhero Green Arrow. He previously starred on the short-lived ABC series ‘The River’ and as professional wizard Harry Dresden on SyFy’s ‘The Dresden Files.’
Fellow British actor Stephen Dillane currently plays Stannis Baratheon on ‘GoT’ — a jerk-face who believes he is the rightful king of Westeros, despite his brother murdering the royal family and taking their throne. He also had a brief role in this year’s Oscar-nominated ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ in the coveted role of “National Security Advisor.”
