2015-07-09 07:00

Cape Town – If you're a big Game of Thrones fan like us, we're pretty sure you're suffering from GOT withdrawal.

And while we will have to wait for an entire year to see our favourite characters again and to find out if Jon Snow is really dead, there is one consolation.

While a number of them are currently working on movies we will be able to catch some of them on the big screen before the end of the year.

Here's who to keep an eye out for.

Peter Dinklage

Peter will star alongside Adam Sandler in the 80s arcade comedy-action movie Pixels. Aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them and attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults. Peter will play Adam’s nemesis. The film is set to be released in SA on 24 July!

Sean Bean

Sean will star alongside Matt Damon in the astronaut movie, The Martian. Sean will play a NASA flight director. It hits cinemas on 2 October.

Kit Harington

Kit’s been a busy man. He'll be starring in the war drama, Testament of Youth and then play a secret agent in Spooks: The Greater Good. Testament of Youth hits cinemas on 23 October. A release date for Spooks has yet to be announced.

Rose Leslie

Although Rose's GOT character Yigrette has been killed off, fans can catch her alongside Vin Diesel in the supernatural action film The Last Witch Hunter.  It hits cinemas on 23 October.

Natalie Dormer and Gwendoline Christie

These co-stars will reunite in the last installment of the hit series, The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2. Natalie will reprise her role as Cressida and Gwendoline joins the cast as Commander Lyme. It can be seen in cinemas on 25 November.
