Even the most dedicated Game of Thrones fan probably doesn’t know that Irish actress Michelle Fairley wasn’t the original choice for the role of Catelyn Stark on the hit HBO series. The role of the Stark matriarch was originally offered to Jennifer Ehle, who left the show shortly after filming the pilot episode. Producers later confirmed that Jennifer’s departure from the show wasn’t due to any bad blood, but rather the fact that she had just given birth to a daughter, and didn’t want to commit to such a long-running series while her daughter was so young. Given that Game of Thrones became such a massive hit, there’s no word on whether Jennifer Ehle regrets her choice.
