Ultimate Game of Thrones Actors Quiz

The big list of lads and ladies who have acted in the hit HBO TV show Game of Thrones up to the series finale. Can you name all the characters listed?
Various spellings of some of the characters names where applicable, formal titles not required.
Eps. denotes the number of episodes the actor has appeared in. Seasons denotes which seasons/series that the actors have appeared in. If it ends in 8, they died in the final season, if it ends in E, they survived to the end. "E?" means they're not mentioned or seen to have died, but did not appear in the final season, so their survival is unknown.
Hint is a 2-3 word hint to help you out (particularly with lesser-known characters)
All the actors have appeared in at least four episodes and had regular speaking lines.

Lana Headey's last name is spelled incorrectly. Also, what about adding Miltos Yerolemou as Syrio Forel and Alexandra Dowling as Roslin Frey?

Lena Headey's name has been fixed, thanks for finding that!

As for the other two, the actors need at least four episodes to be added to the quiz. Alexandra Dowling had one and Miltos got only three. It's just that there's been so many actors with one or two appearances that to include them all would be a massive quiz. Thanks for the suggestions, though. Maybe they'll both get to come back in future seasons. :)

Okay, so I had a look and came up with some more actors who had four or more episodes that maybe you could add to the quiz. They are:

Elyes Gabel as Rakharo

Patrick Malahide as Balon Greyjoy

Max Von Sydow as the Three Eyed Raven

Richard Dormer as Beric Dondarrion

Ben Hawkey as Hot Pie

Margaret John as Old Nan

Susan Brown as Septa Mordane

Roxanne Mckee as Doreah

Amrita Acharia as Irri

Tara Fitzgerald as Selyse Baratheon

Elizabeth Webster as Fat Walda Bolton

Will Tudor as Olyvar

Robert Pugh as Craster

Toby Sebastian as Trystane Martell

(Maybe I'll make my own quiz...)
