While it’s not a surprise that many of the Game of Thrones characters look absolutely different — and even glamorous — in real life, it’s still a trip to not see them done up in their usual medieval garb. Tom Wlaschiha, the actor who plays Jaqen H’ghar, mysterious assassin and mentor to Arya Stark who is at the center of many interesting theories, is another one of these GoT stars who look NOTHING like the character he plays.

Aside from not being suited up in armor or robes, Wlaschiha’s IRL hair also makes him look like a completely different person.
