The characters on television that we all know and love are most often a huge contrast to who they are in real life. It could be their appearance or personality that is not at all how they are when they are off the set. You will find, in most cases, that they do not resemble their beloved characters in any way shape or form. We have put together a quick list of people who are nothing like the characters that they portray on TV.

1 Games Of Thrones: Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke)

Emilia plays Daenerys Targaryen who is most known for her striking white hair. Emilia was 25-years-old when she began playing the 17-year-old character on the hit show Game of Thrones. This Mother of Dragons is a hugely popular character that showed the actress how to embrace feminism and to be a strong woman who fights inequality. In real life, she has brown hair and wears it in a much more edgier style than her character on GOT.

2 Game Of Thrones: Varys (Conleth Hill)

Conleth was originally cast to play the role of King Rober Baratheon but ended up taking the role of Varys. On Game of Thrones, his character is bald. In real life, Conleth has a full head of hair. He did not have any issues with shaving his hair off for the show, but in real life, he much prefers his hair.


3 The Big Bang Theory: Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki)

Our favorite science and comic-loving nerd is much different to see in real life. On screen, he has a clean shave, slicked hair, and glasses. In the real world, he doesn't wear glasses, his curly hair is unruly, and he is part of the beard-gang.

4 The Big Bang Theory: Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik)

Mayim is probably the most shocking off-set. She plays a neurobiologist who is new to love and romance. In real life, she is just as honest and upfront as she is on the show, but she looks way different than her character, Amy. She does not wear glasses and loves to wear makeup unlike her character on The Big Bang Theory.


5 Modern Family: Alex Dunphy (Ariel Winter)

Ariel plays a character that is close to her own age. Her appearance on TV and off are is hugely different. On TV, she is a nerd who dresses very conservatively. In real life, she wears revealing outfits that are a strong contrast to her character on Modern Family.

6 Grey’s Anatomy: Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo)

Ellen plays a surgical intern on the hit show Grey's Anatomy. She is one of the highest paid actresses on television. In real life, she does not wear scrubs and is a stylish mother of three with a great smile who also loves to live an adventurous life.


7 Orange Is The New Black: Suzanne (Uzo Aduba)

By far one of the most beloved characters from the hit Netflix show, Orange is the New Black, is Crazy Eyes, Suzanne, played by Uzo Aduba. She has won two Emmys for this role playing a mentally ill woman who the fans of the show have grown to love. In real life, Uzo does not rock short dreads and a no-makeup look. She is a fashionable woman who always looks glamourous off-set.

8 Vikings: Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard)

Gustaf plays a religious zealot, Floki, in Vikings. Unlike his character, who is bald and wears makeup and has head tattoos, in real life he is clean cut with a short beard and hair.


9 Shameless: Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum)

Emmy is the main star of the show Shameless who is a singer-songwriter. She plays big sister and has taken on the motherly role in her house leaving her too busy to put herself together and frequently goes without makeup. Off-air, she puts herself together elegantly and smiles much more than her character, Fiona.

10 Suits: Mike Ros (Patrick J. Adams)

Our favorite lawyer fraud is a photographer in real life. If you pay attention to the photos that hang on the wall in Rachel's office, they were taken by Patrick. He also sports a more laid back in real life than his character who is almost always in a suit and tie.


11 The Handmaid’s Tale: Offred (Elisabeth Moss)

Elisabeth plays Offred who is a handmaid in a totalitarian society who has a very vintage look. In reality, she has a vibrant hairstyle, wears makeup, and sports a very modern look.

12 The Crown: Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy)

In order to play the most important role of Queen Elizabeth II, Claire had to put in a lot of work in order to perfect her impression of the Queen. She had to nail the precise dialect that the Queen spoke as a young woman, to perfectly capture her. In reality, Claire is as modern as any other British woman from our time with beautiful hair and a modern style.
